So it sounds like a few folks here are planning on playing ESO, so I thought we should get a thread going.  I'd really like us to put an Obsidian Order Guild together.  The nice part is you can join a few different guilds, so you won't be limited to one.  Does anyone know if guild members have to be in the same faction?  I hope not, but I haven't investigated much.

This is an excellent idea, I'll be following everyones updates around TESO and let you know when I purchase the game :)

I am level 7 now and the game starts to take off, finally. I am finding more armors and weapons and I can finally craft some interesting things.

Yes but it's an MMO, which means there will never be a realistic horse genitalia mod. That, and it's full of ... people. Eewww.

True, it won't ever be the same if I can't get wieners in my game. Though, there actually is a "add-ons" button in the main menu. But it's probably just for interface stuff.

I can never download the beta. It's far too large.

Dangit, I should've have looked at the preorder page. Mudcrab pet! Dangit....

 

*goes off to read lukewarm reviews to temper desire for a mudcrab pet....*

So if you pre-order the $79 pack, can you try it for the 5 days as soon as you order, or does it mean you get to play 5 days early? (March 31, say)

$80 is cheaper than that NW:Online pack I bought, so eh...well, we'll see. I need more info about micro-transactions (there are micro-transactions, right?) I do kinda object to subscription plus micro-transaction model, even if the micro-transactions are vanity oriented. I'd rather they offer an optional higher monthly tier ($20-25/m, for example) that includes the vanity stuff instead.

I only bothered with the $60 preorder.  The $80 version only seemed to have the Imperial race, which I don't really care about.  Redguard for life, yo.

The mudcrab is part of the digital Imperial edition. If I were to pay early for this game, I must have mudcrab. The horse I don't care about. Imperial race ... can take it or leave it, although the Imperial armor stuff sounds interesting.

 

From what I'm reading, crafting-alts may be ... optimal. I hear my task-obsessive nature calling. Still, ES and I don't tend to = longevity so that makes me hesitate on a personal level. :) Looks very pretty, however. And I like that it seems you can explore quite extensively even if that means you're most likely going to die. What I'd be most interested in is what lvl25+ people think, but I think that's still off-limits to discuss or something.

Seeing that even the cheapest horse in the game already costs 17k money, I'd rather pick the horse than the useless mudcrab. :>

You can be a member of a guild of any faction, but you can only hold control points and such (I suppose pvp-related stuff) for a guild you share the faction with.

It took our Art Director 24 hours to download the beta.

 

Whut.

Was he doing it during the beta?  I did it a couple days beforehand and it downloaded in a couple hours with no problems.

The mudcrab and horse are in the same package ... don't have to choose, can have both!
It's not that I'd mind having a horse, I'm sure it's handy at times, but I never really liked horse riding in Skyrim, so I doubt I'd like it that much here.
