This game is sometimes very hard.  I died like 7 times trying to complete a solo instance.  Finally gave up, paid a huge repair bill, and decided to try again after getting some better gear and a level or at least some skill points.

 

I enjoy the challenge, seems better than most MMO's I've played in that regard.

Guys here is a good review on ESO

 

Yeah, the crafting is pretty amazing and complex.  It's hard not to want to focus on all the disciplines.  For example, I noticed a few of my pieces of gear were pretty low, so today I crafted a new sword, shield, belt, and boots.  Now the first step to becoming a decent crafter is to research.  You unlock traits by researching item with those traits.  It destroys the item, but then you can craft stuff with those traits as long as you have a precious gem.  I've got a few traits researched for most armor and weapons at this point.  The traits vary between giving magicka, stamina, health, speed, critical and durability boosts.  There are a lot.

 

So I make a sword with a decent trait, and then I use a honing stone to increase it's damage, which turns it into a green item.  I can actually improve it all the way to an epic weapon if I have the improvement materials, but at this point I'm happy with it being green.  Then I go to the enchantment table.  I've got a lot of runes translated at this point, and I can make glyphs at a decent level, so I whip up a frost damage weapon glyph and apply it to my sword.  Viola, I have a fancy magic sword.  Oh, I almost forgot, you can unlock all sorts of racial motifs that decide what your sword looks like.  So I really enjoy the breton style heavy armor, and the redguard swords.  There are 10 different styles to craft as.

Returning to the giant mushroom regions from Morrowind reminds me of what an interesting world this can actually be when you get away from the typical medieval europe regions.

 

I'm up to level 28 and still enjoying it tremendously.  I've done a bit of PvP, it's similar to Guild Wars 2.  Basically I sneak around carefully and try not to get ganked.

Soooo.... I bought this and made a Breton DragonKnight.

 

It's interesting but I don't think it'll really come alive until I can pop in on my friends who are playing from my WoW guild.

You can join a five guilds, so I'll see if I can get you an invite to mine.  Otherwise we can make a small one for the few of us Obsidianites playing, just to help us track each other down.  My name is @hurlshot

I'm very close to purchasing this game, I am at the end of my normal MMO evaluation period and so far the game is looking good and successfully passed most  of my criteria points for MMO  investment
