[ESO] General play
I resumed my play with my pyromancer DK last night, but a quest I ran across had one of the phasing bugs in a section, so an item that was supposed to be interactive wasn’t. Rather than try a simple logout/login which often puts you back in the same phase and thus still bugged out, I logged over to my Templar for a bit. Cleared the last couple of quests in Auridon out of my journal. The area had a lot of scamps, clannfears, and ghosts, so I got to test that “Undead Explosion” and well…. the Templar was also getting the explosion proc for the same 127 points of damage that the sorcerer was getting, but I never saw this proc on any of the scamps or clannfears so it seems to be something related solely to undead. I wish I knew what’s causing it, as I’ve only seen it on these 2 characters so far, and the only thing they have in common is that they’ve got the Silver Bolts skill purchased, but I don’t see anything about that skill that would cause such a proc (the banish that it can do does a lot more damage and is also a lot more rare) and I don’t even have it slotted when I see the proc anyway. Besides which, you’d think Fighter’s Guild skills would affect daedra as well, so I don’t think that’s it at all.
Finished that quest, went back to the pyromancer. And that quest was still bugged, so I simply moved on. Found the Matron’s Clutch world boss area, and while she wasn’t up, the area was lousy with 2-dot boss level minions. I could take them out individually just fine using just heavy attacks, Unstable Flames, and the Fire Clench. But they took a while to kill and were only worth 140 xp, so it wouldn’t have been a good grinding spot even if I were inclined to grind out mobs. On the other hand, then tended to drop a lot of green quality loot. . . . .
I made it to level 14 on the pyromancer, but there weren’t any other big milestones or story quests that I completed, so….. just a short little update today as I attempt to keep this daily posting thing going. But as I settle in to ESO, I’ll probably go back to my typical much slower pace. Such is life, right?
