A few things have changed for me in ESO. For one, I’m now a subscriber! As I mentioned in my last ESO post, that craft bag is a huge lure. And I’m not even that much of a crafter, even though I think that ESO’s implementation is very good (one character can learn all the crafting disciplines; mechanics include more than just collect/craft/trash, etc.)
I figured, why not sub for a while in a game I’m enjoying occasionally; after all, I was willing to do that for WoW. Not throwing WoW under the bus – I had fun playing, there is nothing wrong with it, it’s just me… mostly I need a game with a heavier emphasis on solo and QoL issues, with some optional grouping too.
Anyway, I started a Breton Templar, and am working my way along. So far I’ve finished up Stros M’kai and Betnikh, getting all the achievements for those admittedly small zones. I’m now in Glenumbra where I plan to move along the original main quest, the zone quest, and other random stuff I bump into. I’ll switch between my Nightblade, Templar, and Warden for variety when I need it.
I’m not all that far along in ESO, but the content just feels massive. I’ve got 3 chars, one in each alliance, and it doesn’t feel like the quest lines converge like they do in other games. Each zone has a fairly large number of quests and it’s own zone quest so I’ll have plenty to do.
So far I haven’t spent any of the crowns I get as an ESO Plus member. One thing I could buy are DLC’s, so I own them in case I unsub down the road. Another thing I could do is accumulate for a while in order to buy a house.
Decisions, decisions… 😉
