    If I am say magicka based and wield a greatsword, does the greatsword do as much as my stam build or are physical type weapons tied to stamina? I've only played stam on my nb and was considering trying out magicka but I don't favor ranged playstyle. I have so many sets now from vets that I don't know what to do with either destroy or use :3

    Honestly, I just started off and I don't know how anyone could use anything other than a staff. The ability to get back magicka is so helpful in most any fight. Without it, it seems like I would just be standing around only able to use simple attacks as I wait for it to trickle back.

    The physical type (2H, DW, Bow and One w/ Shield) are based on Stamina, the two Staves (Destro and Resto) on Magicka. So not only their damage depends on Stamina for the first group, but also their Heavy Attacks only return stamina. The opposite is true for the staves.

    I am saving as many sets at CP160 as I can, purely because a) you don't know what set will be nerfed/buffed to better fit your toons and b) personally I am faffing about with non-optimal/min-maxed characters and you never which ones of those sets would be a good fit.

    When you play a bit longer, you will see that a lot of abilities can be morphed to stamina (for some classes more than others) and also you have 4 weapon skill-lines that are stamina-based. So yes, while everyone starts with only magicka abilities, you can very quickly be rocking mostly stamina abilities/morphs. Unless you are a DK of course, in which case you better get used to the weapon skill lines if you want stamina abilities

    is this game worth getting back into? bought the imperial edition on launch, pre order everything, was hugely disappointed, but is it worth it now? Are the new updates fun?

    I don't know what to tell you mate. I wasn't there at launch, but apparently it's a vastly improved game right now. Not perfect, but much better apparently. Personally, I enjoy quite a few aspects of it and it has been my new MMO home since BFA launched.

    At the end of the day, you can test it without spending a penny with what you have, give it a go. The most important things you won't have is the Warden class and Battlegrounds, but if you like what you see you can get them dead cheap now

    It's part of the Morrowind expansion, but you can also get it on its own if you fancy doing so. Same with necromancer coming out with the new expansion next month. That's standard practice in MMOs imo (ie if you don't buy Legion you don't get Demon Hunters etc)

    Common practice in many MMOs.

    Rift. Lot of specs are behind a paywall and even roles for specific classes. Eg Mage Tank is paid.
    Guild Wars 2. Revenant is behind HoT as are Elite Specialisations.
    WoW. Expansions based classes.
    FF14. Expansion based jobs.

    And so on. The Warden and Necro do come with Morrowind and Elsweyr respectively but they are also made a separate purchase for people who may just want the classes.

    Honestpy they really should make the pelinials bonus baseline aka stam and magicka effect all weapons and skill lines..

    Instead fovus on the flavor and builds likely would become more about which resource js better..or at LEAST give all skills a dtam and magica version

    Still comes with some versions of the game if I recall but I'll have to check.

    I think it does still come with stand alone versions of Morrowind but I'm not sure.

    I don't know about the digital or physical version (if you can still buy it) but in the crown store morrowind and warden are sold separately

    You can still buy brand new physicals for Morrowind, Summerset and whatnot.

    Morrowind is £6 on Amazon right now for PS4.

    very odd. cause my SO has pretty much been almost exclusively playing battlegrounds at various hours of the day and had no trouble. in fact, last week of even coincided with his vacation, so he'd pvp for ours every day. lucky?

    the biggest issue with queue that i had on US was getting a queue and then not getting enough people in, and basically getting stuck inside a battleground that never starts. on EU, I either get stuck in queue waiting or get stuck in "someone denied, you were placed at the front of the queue" loop :/ EU on the better days been far FAR worse for me then US on the worst day :/

    Wooo finally hit level 50. Now it kind of feels like the game pushes you towards sticking with the spec you invested all your skill points into. Unless you're willing to pay for an expensive respec that is. Or is it once that you unlock all the skill points from quests and skyshards, you'll have enough to completely fill all the skill trees and become a sort of everyman?
