Made a similar post on Steam before but decided to ask here as well since there are some people harassing me currently.

I initially got it in March (I believe) during one of the sales on Steam because there was always an interest I had for the game but I was never sure if I should get it or not. Also I'm very into the lore and world of TES games so it got me curious even more. All that aside from the fact that I became bored of gw2 as a vet who has been playing it for years and the immense lack of content the game has to offer for 7 year veterans if you don't actively raid (which I did but that was long long ago).
So, I played a bit back then, found everything quite interesting, but at some point dropped out and took a break for like several months and became inactive. I only logged in daily to grab the rewards, sadly. And just now as of recentIy found myself becoming active again and actually played for several hours each day over the last 2 weekends and leveled my two characters (a khajiit warden and an argonian dragonknight) I currently have to max (Leveling seems so slow even with scrolls and only focusing on main quests if you don't have a subscription compared to some other games) so that I could unlock champion rank (currently at CP170~) to not look completely helpless.
One thing that I have noticed at first is that the world looks beautiful and I'm amazed that you get so much stuff even without DLCs and/or expansions (will think about maybe getting that once it's possible for me). Also I like to add that the game seems to surprisingly good even on the highest settings (usually around 80fps to 100) and no matter the population compared to gw2 (which is becoming more and more unstable with each update but that's something everyone is talking about and a problem of the engine being overloaded and totally out of date. But we aren’t here to talk about that game.).
Well, I still need to figure out some of the stuff still (like how to acquire the right crafting recipes to match endgame gear) but I'm eager to find out things for myself.
I'm a very shy and anxious kind of guy who usually does stuff on his own and gets nervous when others are around in fear of them being rude. (I heard from others that the community is extremely unfriendly but I'm not sure because others say the opposite) I also don't talk at all or very rarely or only when I’m panicking so I think trading will be a problem and I don't even know how prices are listed (found some stuff from the event that I already have and that is sold by others through the chat so I assume there's no trading post or somesuch) and I need to leave group bosses out of map completion as well because of that allthough I soloed a few of these and a few group dungeons as well. Overall I tend to do things on my own and I don't need help at all but I thought about maybe asking around if there's someone here interested in adventuring together. Someone focused on the same things like the roleplaying and exploring aspect rather than the hardcore one of the game.
I know I could ask for a guild but my experiences with guilds have always been bad and I never stayed in one for a long time (except those that became inactive) and I’m known to have been into every sort of them. My experiences go from stuff like where people were offered help but were told to go search the internet instead to stuff like the climate becoming very toxic to stuff like bullying and even to one guild that blackmailed their members for gold. Those are only a few examples of the bad but despite all the bad things there were also good experiences but sadly all the nice and friendly guilds are those that became inactive for years. I might add also that I’m very shy when it comes to stuff like discord or teamspeak and it might take me a while due to events in the past regarding voice chats where people have been making fun of me and harassing me only because my voice didn’t sound like either male or grown up. I’ve gotten some pretty transphobic and homophobic insults there that I don’t want to repeat and that’s why my trust is not easily given these days because I’m still insecure about those things.
Because of those experiences I’d like to be careful with guilds, especially if I don’t know the community well. And even if I’d search for one I’d rather be looking for a LGBTQ friendly guild due to some of my background.
Anyways I’m rather a kind of roleplayer (even if I never actually did RP) who likes to immerse myself within the world of a game and someone who enjoys the lore. I’d like to take things slowly and I also have a backstory and headcanons for every character (that goes for any game actually). I’m not new but I’m also not a veteran so I could use a few advices.
So if there’s anyone of the same kind like me who wants to accompany me please feel free to drop by.
(Sorry if this got messy. I don't usually make posts and English isn’t my mother tongue since I’m from Germany but I prefer to be around English speaking communities)
