[ESO] Catching up with ESO

Fighter's Guild Completed!

Fighter’s Guild Completed!

Well… catching YOU up, that is.  I’ve played it every day since my last post on it, it’s just that I’m in the same place that Pitrelli is:  I’m enjoying it, but since it’s “just another themepark” and I don’t want to spoil the quest stories that I’m REALLY enjoying in the Daggerfall Covenant while playing my melee sorcerer…. what to say?  That’s why the past few posts have been mostly just screenshot dumps and why this one will be too. . . .

Level 40 stats with new gear.  I got to trait my swords to precise, so I'm "only" 25% crit rate, but I'll fix that with my level 42 weapon upgrade.

That said, the progress report is:  Dragonknight is still VR1.  A touch over halfway to VR2.  Finished Stros M’Kai and Betnikh, and is maybe 1/3 of the way done with Glenumbra.  I expect I’ll be VR2 well before I finish Glenumbra, but since I’m currently playing my sorcerer through the DC faction and then intend to play my Alderi Dominion Templar through there, it’s will be a while before I really focus on this character again.

Ding 41!

Ding 41!

The sorcerer is as of last night level 41.  I completed the Fighter’s Guild at level 38, so that lovely Prismatic weapon is sitting in my inventory waiting for level 43 to roll around.  I did the Mage’s Guild last night at the tail end of 40.  I chose again to leave the girl insane and get the book that’s good for 2 skill points, but I can’t read it until I hit 43 either.  Oh well.  Now I know that even though I can do the quests before 43 that there’s not much point to jumping the gun on them either.  Tonight’s plan is to do the level 35 main story quest.  This is the one where you have the waves of undead that spawn on you and ignore the NPC companions, so you die a lot, so I’ve been waiting on it.  This sorcerer is more survivable than the DK was (and I did it with her at 40, even) so going in prepared as I am, we’ll see how I do.

And now for the screenshot dump.  As always, beware of spoilers:

I don't remember who this is.  TBH, I don't think you even talk to her, she's just "there" but I thought she looked cool enough to take a picture of her

  1. Offt dems from nice screenshot porn. Highest settings? I am playing on mostly medium

    My armor also looks pretty basic so haven’t yet taken many screenies. Will remedy that next time I play.

    • I’m not maxed out for the settings, but they’re not far from it either. I bought a pretty nice rig about a year and a half ago and it’s been able to handle anything the modern games have thrown at as of yet. Oddly enough, if I use either Raptr or nVidia’s “optimization” apps they seem to make it look worse while also decreasing my framerate, so I always manually configure. Though now that I think about it, I let ESO set itself up and haven’t changed my video settings at all.

      • Oh I made the mistake of using raptr optimization settings and it almost blinded me with how ugly it looked. I be not tried highest settings yet tbh much like you I let the game decide and it get 90 fps on average so works for me. I’ve got an old gtx 460 ti in my rig so may upgrade sometime soon.
