    will you be implementing a system similar to Rift's mentor system, that would allow you to lower your level to a particular zone?
    I will work. I will save. I will sacrifice. I will endure. I will fight cheerfully and do my utmost, as if the whole issue of the struggle depended on me alone.

    Dyeable shields? I get my Armor looking the way I like then I have a shield that doesn't match messing it up, will this obvious oversight ever be fixed?

    Jewelry crafting? Specificly: set piece jewelry crafting would allow some intersting combinations of crafted gear.

    Transmorg. Will we ever be able to use models we find more aestheticly pleasing than the current material level. Take Bosmer (because it's one of the few armors w/o tassets at low level) as an example, from level 20 on the model doesn't change at all except for base color. I'd love to craft higher level armor in the lower level style. Anything to get rid of the emormous unattached tassets (that don't belong on medium armor and are totaly out of place on light) floating in midair several inches away from my character's hips.

    Vampires. According to in-game lore, ESO vampires are not weakened by sunlight (true) and are more powerful at night (not true) will in-game reality be made to reflect in-game lore?

    Day and Night. Will the day/night schedule ever be normalized to equal length? Days are currently much longer than nights, it must be summertime. Will there be a season where nights are longer?

    Dodge Chance. According to @ZOS_GaryA‌ in another thread, dodge chance from different sources is supposed to stack, testing (detailed in linked thread) reveals that this is not the case, it also reveals that the actual chance is not what is stated in the tooltip.. Will this be fixed, would someone please add it to the "known issues" thread? 15%-20% is low enough to have been more appropriately used as a passive, it should at least stack with other sources of dodge chance.

    Justice system and griefing. What steps are going to be taken to prevent griefing when the PvP aspects of the Justice system go live? What's to stop high level players from camping low level zones and easily detecting and slaughtering lower level players? What's to stop 'enforcers' from camping bandit dens for the same reason? Will the bad guys be able to target the player enforcers? Will this encur a bounty? Enforcers are not actually guards, fighting back against them should be the same as fighting a bounty hunter: self defense; whereas fighting a guard should be resisting arrest and a further infraction.

    Alchemy and Provisioning. We curently can get to vet level 14, why do recipes and solvents stop at VR5?

    Are the various aspect runes meant to do anything??, because I get the same strength of enchantment from a Ta as from a Kuta.

    It would be nice if there was a slight increase for each of the aspect runes, because at the minute all they do is give you more XP.

    Can you give an example where this is occurring because for me I do see an increase with every aspect rune. I admit that having a white glyph is FAR better than no glyph while having a gold glyph is only a little better than a white one but the difference is there.

    ex.
    Monumental Glyph of Magicka
    TA (white) 86 Magicka
    Jejota (green) 88 Magicka
    Denata (blue) 91 Magicka
    Rekuta (purple) 94 Magicka
    Kuta (gold) 97 Magicka

    If they ever create a Legendary recipe it better contain bacon as one of the ingredients. I'm just sayin'.

    Also, the boost a Kuta gives varies based on the type of glyph you're creating.

    For example, compare the white and gold versions of these VR10-14 glyphs:

    Armor glyph of magicka: white = 86, gold = 97
    Jewelry glyph of decrease physical harm: white = 143 , gold = 630
    Weapon glyph of foulness: white = 40, gold = 53

    As a general rule unless I've a lot of Kuta, I only use the for jewelry and weapon glyphs. Note: I always have a ton of Kuta :p

    A. It would be nice to push again customization for clothes:

    1. be able to test and see in some clothes store any kind of style, even if do not have the level or the style
    2. be able to have two set of clothes, one armor for combat and another one more fashion for cities

    B. Add a speaking system (such as teamspeak) without connexion

    1. one would create a group and the speak ssytem would follow itself
    2. when you approach a group of people your be able to hear them and to participate to the conversation... real life!

    C. More craft

    1. Tame animals to ride them instead of horses, add levels of taming
    2. Add physical training to change the shape of your body, or if you each to much potatoes you get fatter
    3. Add athletic skills to learn how to jump, crawl, swim...
    4. Add social skills...

    Guards are unkillable. They can kill you but you can only flee from them.
    That is good, but I am more talking about a Champion Level NPC that would be really difficult to kill. I'd like to see some "Elite"/"Champion" NPCs dropping ultimates, using dark cloak/bolt esca-e to escape, and basically making themselves more than just fodder to be murdered.

    I'm pretty sure guards will be killable, they just get a boss health bar and there will probably be an infinite number of them.

    They already tried to implement mantles, I.e. they created some models, but they had to realize that mantles of sufficent graphical quality take up far too much prossecing power, (they managed to have a total of two mantles on-screen at once). They'd love to do it but it's currently not technically possible.

    Staed by one of the devs at the guild summit.


    Can you provide the time-stamp for this please?

    How would they not work with each other? Skill points from skyshards are for skill lines, champion points are for the constellations.

    This^^, no need to remove skyshards, they just work independently, no conflict of interests there.

    I don't know, something just tells me the old Skyshard system wont work correctly with their new Champion system. Just a gut feeling.

    Again....it could be easily cleared up if they would just tell us ANYTHING about how the new system is actually going to work and not just leave it upto the players to guess and speculate ;)
    They are two completely independent systems.

    Silly idea. Do you need also clock alike alarm anytime enemy enter 100m radiius around you? Learn to observe battlefield and you will not need *** colors to tell you if its friendly or enemy ultimate.
    That's not always easy to do. I don't think they need to be color coded by alliance but the red and orange are not always that distinguishable. Especially when there are a lot of particle effects going off.
