    i have only encountered this problem with bosmer. fem bosmer's head is way too big for her tiny tiny body. but everyone else seems fine, except for the lack of jaw customization.
    there is a jaw slider. and what amuses me is that you talk about sticking to elves cause they are more feminine.. when they have the longest jaws of all the available races O_O

    not sure what you mean about thickness either - younger faces are rounder typically

    they have a jaw width slider, but not a height slider.

    i like elves because they're pretty(although, lorewise, i only like the dunmer of all the elves since they embrace reality, according to lorkhan's plan). longer face doesn't always mean masculine, it's about the placement of eyes, nose and mouth. besides, elves are supposed to look more alien than humans in elder scrolls, which is why i liked their skyrim version best.

    but yeah though, i do hope that going forward they start to take classes into account in dialogue. being a sorc/necro, i should be able to comprehend and talk about magical things that people are talking to me about. i hate having to act like a non-mage brainlet when talking about magical stuff. skyrim did it, too, general questions and letting other people do the talking, it's so bad.

    there was one point of that in elsweyr, being able to confirm something is necromancy for that khajiit mage outside of that delve. that fills me with a hard to describe feeling. being able to show off my affinity for the subject. idk what you'd call the good feeling i get from that, but it feels great.

    My BG performance is all over the place. Sometimes I get into a match where I swear not a single enemy player has heard of impen gear and I can go on a massive skillless killing spree. Other times it seems like the enemy is built like a glass cannon tank, and can't do crap to them.

    Kind of feel bad for killing people so easily. Seeing as I pretty much just started PVP, it doesn't feel like my performance should be that amazing.

    there IS a height slider. its called chin height but it still amazes me that you feel like Elves are the prettiest and your problem is with long chins... when Elves have the longest largest chins of all races :/

    in any case - that necromancy conversation was great, when i did it on my necro and my conversation option changed - that was fabulous.
    @Very Tired

    there is a chance you were running into people who are only going into battlegrounds to unlock enough of the pvp skill lines to get their requisite pve required abilities (caltrops for stam, purge for well.. everyone really, warhorn for healers and tanks) so they are going to be squishy and not very good at all.

    Even Skyrim Elves has long chins, and Oblivion Mods kinda gave it back like OCO

    I know. I don't have a problem with that I'm just pointing out that its just odd to complain about too long chins making characters looking masculine... while simultaneously chosing to play races with longer chins and thinking they are prettier. its contradictory.

    that said... new promo for a mount.... /proceeds to fail the same story level over... and over... and over. sigh.

    man, i thought the cliffs of failure was some kind of trial or something when i leveled through coldharbour on my sorc.

    and these assholes knew exactly the choice i'd make, and made me regret making it.

    oh ho ho ho, nvm, it seems my curiosity about the fighter's guild storyline paid off in the end. this pleases me greatly.

    well, i just got done with the clockwork city, and it made me feel differently on something.

    i always wondered why sotha didn't CHIM, since he arguably understands more about the metaphysics of the world than vivec ever seemed to. i always thought he could. but seeing his "curse" of certainty, i feel like maybe he'd zero sum if he would have tried. though, zero summing is caused by the conflicted mind, right? the mind being unable to reconcile being existent and non-existent at the same time. sotha isn't conflicted, if he faced CHIM, and his certainty lead him to remain sure that he is now, and always was meant to be false, then that should make him just understand the truth without zero summing or achieving CHIM.

    very interesting to think about though. i love the way he describes vivec and almalexia though, they're all such well written characters.

    Doesn't everyone have that mount by now? It's the same mount they giveaway for almost everything.

    So I guess battlegrounds actually have an MMR system in place, so I guess my streak of fun stomping BGs is at an end.

    would be nice to have some romantic interests pop up in future dlc.

    i got a little annoyed last night. was gonna show interest in darien, since i'm finally leveling through covenant stuff. but after showing interest, he goes and tries to get in a countess's pants and sleeps with an enemy commander for info. so no thank you to that.

    Darien is just a flirt and a bit of a slut that gets into everything and everyone's pants. Naryu (from Pact story) comes across that way, but she rarely follows through.

    in general, there are NO love interests in this game, just people you can occasionally flirt with.

    minor spoiler - very minor since some of these characters are used in trailers to sell expansions. most significant or at least somewhat momorable npc's are reccuring characters not only across different alliance stories but also in pretty much all the story DLC's and occasionally popping up in Dungeon DLC's .

    Find another player to RP with and marry? There's an in-game marriage system. Why would you limit yourself to NPC interactions in a MMO?

    seems like the main characters that keep appearing are all from covenant, except for that dark elf and his sister. i always thought that the 'canon' vestige is probably a breton from DC, either a sorcerer or a templar, and probably anti-alliance war due to realizing the greater daedric threats. the fact that darien, gabrielle, neramo, and others show up constantly, it's probably true.

    and yeah, naryu, i kinda expect that behavior from her since sex and seduction are pretty powerful tools in her trade, and she's a servant of mephala who teaches to use them that way. she didn't actually sleep with anyone that i remember though, just lured them and poisoned them the one time i remember her doing something.

    because that's not canon.

    i like things that actually happen in the world. if there's an npc for me to romance, then it's canonical.

    um. Raz is a major character that keeps showing back up a LOT, of the top of my head as far as AD goes. Naryu is technically pact, as you originally meet her in pact story and she plays somewhat significant part in it (and yes she flirts and flatters but doesn't really follow through). Rigurt is life... Rigurt is love. there is a Dunmeri vampire hunter that shows up in a few places. I'll have to look up more, but the irony here is one of the story complaints that D players tend to have is how badly or underrepresented they are in follow up content after main stories, so.. yeah :/

    hmmm. idk, i've seen a lot of daggerfall characters everywhere. darien being the golden boy. raz only showed up in summerset.

    darien's from glenumbra to coldharbour, then summerset, probably gonna be re-materialize for the next expansion, too. though he did seem to think this last death was final.

    neramo showed up in clockwork. but you see him and the crew through the DC leveling experience much more often than you see pretty much anyone through the EP leveling. raz and the bosmer agent are really the only two you see most in AD. you see the two lunar champions like once in greenshade i think, but it's not like you have any real interaction or relationship building with them until reaper's march.

    the sister and brother dunmer show up the most i think, both clockwork and goldcoast, coldharbour(does them showing up in goldcoast and clockwork mean they survived the light explosion? or are these dlc canonically before the end of the main story?)

    i'd say AD offers the least amount of recurring characters.

    i honestly can't tell who is more badass between pelinal and doomguy.

    and also, clockwork city makes me 100% believe he was indeed a robot from the future.

    Sooo.

    After i saw a new deal on website about Elwseyr with summerset i want to ask in this thread how the game is going? Is combat still about animation canceling? I'm confident that the story and expansion is awesome. I know there is a lot of content and a lot of different activities. My main grip with gameplay is/was animation canceling, mostly in the endgame builds.

    Is this still a thing? Or maybe this is kinda tryhard stance, like 500 ilvl for entry lvl lfg raid in wow? :P Or if not is there a class, build to play which dont suffer too much from it?

    Also want to touch about crafting bag - i dont plan to pay sub fee ever (more likely i will buy some crowns and buy dlc - like to have permament stuff) so how is gameplay without one? Miserable? It kinda was before, like dont pick up anything other than essentials, which was not really fun to me, big fan of auto loot.
