    Yeah. Was the reason I picked the Wood Elf race in the first place to play as a Nightblade. It seems to be a very unpopular change mentioned on the ESO forums. The great majority said it is only beneficial for pvp and are upset over the change. Useless for pve. Hopefully they will listen to the player base and maybe revert it?

    If I do not respond to your post directed at myself, there will be three reasons. 1. You are on my ignore list. 2. You did not make a post I felt was worthy of a response. 3. I simply never saw it, as I do not dig thru posts if I been offline for a while.

    I try not to lose hope, but we've been begging for reversal ever since the change was originally announced as it stands right now, my bosmer stamblade is now in a situation that my imperial sorc used to be. just not putting points into one of her passives at all. which.. sucks.

    See I agree with most tasks that this is very much possible. However for someone who wants to focus on the stealth playstyle, not picking Khajiit means that your armor sets are suddenly locked in. Ultimately you want:
    Darkstalker from Vampire or Night's Silence 5p/Shadow Dancer's Raiment 5p (and not everyone wants to be a vampire)
    Night Terror 3p or Night Mother's Embrace 5p

    A Bosmer now has to be a vampire or have both of his armor sets locked (and thus cannot pick a second complementary armor set like Stygian)
    Meanwhile my Khajiit Vampire will just grab Night Terror 3p and he has the best stealth he can get AND has Cutpurse

    Haven't been keeping up on the racial passive update but I'm curious to see what my...uh...high elf? character's are changed to. I don't know ES races or lore, don't @ me (except for argonians and their lusty maids).

    BUT OH MAN I AM SO HYPED FOR ZONE GUIDES!

    I was having fun theory crafting the Wood Elf racial. I agree, useless in Pve. And honestly not all that useful in PvP either.

    But for Dueling!

    Hide of Morihaus
    (2 items) Adds 1206 Max Health
    (3 items) Adds 2975 Physical Resistance
    (4 items) Adds 1096 Max Stamina
    (5 items) When you Roll Dodge through an enemy, you deal 1840 Physical Damage and knocks them down for 3 seconds.


    Eternal Hunt
    (2 Items) Adds 1096 Maximum Stamina
    (3 items) Adds 129 Stamina Recovery
    (4 items) Adds 129 Stamina Recovery
    (5 items) When you use Roll Dodge, you leave behind a rune that detonates when enemies come close dealing 8125 Poison Damage and immobilizing them for 1.5 seconds.

    Gonna start fresh on my pro as it will look better then my pc with my new tv, what is the best race atm after changes for a stamblade? and is it better to make two characters if i want a magblade to or can i just switch specs or will the racial be shit for the other spec?

    Was thinking Wood elf before but i see alot of people hating on the new roll damage thing they got so i dunno. Pumped to run stamblade though as i will mostly solo i think that will be best for me with a vanish kind of ability.

    I am hoping to get to do all on one chartacter as i was hoping to just have one char for everything, pve, pvp, crafting.

    this basically. I mean... my imperial is sorc healer even though I used to pretty much skip red diamond passive entirely. but stealth... stealth is different. not only bosmer not being stealthier than most races goes entirely against the lore, but it makes that much of a difference when it comes to justice related activities. i have tried stealing on other characters I have. its.... uncomfortable. my bosmer could still without switching any of her gear, VERY effectively. now.. I'm going to have to keep a fool thievery set on hand, in her already crowded inventory, just to get her effectiveness BACK. its... vexing :/

    we are not hating on new roll change. we are hating on loss of reduced stealth detection radius passive. if you are not planning on being a dedicated thief/assassin on your bosmer - they are just fine. if you want a thieving character, you are pretty much stuck with Khajit or carrying a bunch of extra gear now.

    If you want a race which can support both Stam and Magicka builds, starting with Wrathstone, the Dunmer has the best chance at such flexibility.

    Dunmer has always been one of my favorite race in elder scrolls so sounds good will go abit for looks to though rolling a female assassin so unless they are ugly perhaps i roll a dunmer.

    this is my dunmer dragonknight (yes, that's altmeri dominion loading screen, there is a backstory to that other then - I wanted to make some use of all races all alliances preorder perk :P )



    I was trying to go for reasonable attractive but not super amazingly pretty so I'm sure you can come up with a lovely design yourself after messing with sliders and such although angry foreheads are pretty much a given it seems

    She looks ready to dance at the luau

    My main is wearing a Noble Suit (Daggerfall Covenant Blue/Legate's Black, Ayleid Gold for details) with a Daggerfall Covenant Staff (Ayleid Gold for the staff head, Daggerfall Covenant Blue for the wrap, Cyrodilic Steel for the staff itself). All of my alts wear outfits tbh
    I really hope they bring the werewolf lord back at some point for my Redguard Stamsorc WW (who I may race change to Orsimer).

    they brought it back recently, so that's not out of the question to be brought back again and well - this is one of her city outfits, when I actualy play her, she wears https://eso.mmo-fashion.com/battlemage-palatine-armor/ in similar red, reddish gold and black color scheme - coldharbour black and bloodroot orange and whatever red I have that looks the reddest - on battle armor it happens to be red diamond red (she is all about the fire ) I forgot what her staff was.. militant ordinator I think. will have to look up later.

    one of these days.. I'll get off my butt and go back to farming battlegrounds, becasue Fire Drake's Flame red dye you get from kills achievement there is absolutely spectacular. but.. at my usual ratio of kills to battlegrounds, it will take something like 40 hours of actual game time to get it and so I keep procrastinating :/ really not much for pvp (god i WISH I could have legate black, but I'm having trouble farming 40 hours of battlegrounds for red dye, getting far enough in pvp for legate black is.. not happening )

    I've been interested in ESO for a while but never tried it. I'd imagine you fine folks could clear out some questions I have:

    1. I'm mostly into playing, if I enjoy the gameplay then I come back to games even if it is a bit grindy. It's action combat, right? Is it fun and strategic to play?

    2. I tried Skyrim but I just couldn't manage to play it. My guess is that it's a bit open world-y and single player. Since ESO is a MMO then I think I'd find purpose in the game. I've killed Jaina HC and my guild is working on Mythic BoD but it's more or less the only thing I find a purpose with in WoW, to defeat the last boss on the hardest difficulty but then what? I also only raid some hours a week with the guild so it's not something I do alone which means I barely log on playing on my own. I think I need a direction, a goal that isn't mine, to chase. Do you think I'd enjoy ESO?

    3. In WoW I select a race and pick a class that the race can be. The class has two to four ways of playing the game. Character fantasy is a big factor for me, the looks, the abilities they use, what source of energy (light, darkness, fire etc) they use to fuel abilities etc. Is it clear how that work in ESO?

    4. I enjoy pushing my self and improving my skill to overcome challenges, like mage tower as a spec I never played or mythic raids in WoW. Is the game somewhat hard? Can I challenge my self if it isn't by pulling way to many mobs or by other means up the difficulty?

    5. In vanilla and TBC WoW I really enjoyed dipping my priest in shadow and discipline. Having Mindflay and holy powers while not maxing any was a way I liked to play. It wasn't optimal but I enjoyed being special and push it. Would I be able to be experimental in ESO as well, how limited are you? Does gear, quests, treasures limit your way of playing?

    6. I'm quite tired of factions and how they limit what you can play and with whom you can play. I mean, in WoW I can't be a Dwarf playing with my Horde friends, even if we imagine ourself as a band of outlaws helping each other to survive. There are three factions, right? Does that limit your choice of race/class/what not combination and with whom you can play?

    7. What's the payment method? Does it have a lot of expansions/DLC that is required? How limited am I because of ingame shop and/or DLCs etc?

    8. Any additional information that you think could be useful to a total ESO newbee like me?

    Thanks a lot guys!
    Well met!

    ESO combat is very active. Healers are expected to deal damage and debuff enemies, damage dealers will constantly have to consider using defensive abilities. Fast movement, blocking and dodging all consume stamina so there is a limit to what you can do which requires you to be strategic with your resources (tanking is a very strange beast).

    ESO has a lot of content, mainly because all content released since day one scales to max level and much of that content still gives very relevant rewards.

    Building a character in ESO . . .well frankly it is not clear at all. There are 5 classes, soon to be 6. Every class can do everything. Most classes have 5-6 different ways to be played that are viable for even the hardest content but if you are not interested in veteran trials and veteran HM dungeon bosses, the possibilities are endless.
    On how a build is made: race matters quite a bit but beyond race and class you also have access to weapon skills, armor skills, guild skills, pvp skills (which are also broadly used for PvE; the Assault Ultimate is used practically by every healer and tank in the game) as well as options like being a werewolf or vampire. Everything has its used.

    You can certainly push yourself by soloing group content in ESO. The premier ESO solo challenge is the Maelstrom arena. Imo it is as difficult as the harder of the Mage Tower challenges . . . when played so you can just complete it. It has leaderboards though and many ways to make your life harder
    ESO can be somewhat restrictive with how you build your second or third spec. Still, you do have a lot of options and there are some playstyles that pair really well (magicka dps+healer is very easy to build for both classes and you will only have to change Mundus on occasion). Gear is anything but restrictive; if anything ESO sets are an endless opportunity to create new builds.

    ESO has NO faction barrier for PvE if you buy the All Races All Factions upgrade which is fairly cheap to get.

    The game is B2P. You will buy the base game+latest chapter. The game has numerous DLC which you can also buy OR you can pay a sub and get many perks PLUS all DLC for free. But there are many variable ways to buy the game and its components. As for how limited you'd be with just the base game? Well you seem like a player who is interested primarily in group play so I'd have to say you'd be very limited. The harder dungeons are all in DLC and the base game has only three trials (ESO raids). If you liked solo play more I'd tell you that there are many months of constant play of content just in the base game though.

    Also, ESO housing is addicting. Stay away if you value your wallet!
