Incoming Cyrodiil Vet Rank Change and more

In an effort to give Cyrodiil more XP for players of all levels, all monsters and guards in Cyrodiil will now be Veteran Rank 12. Their health and damage have been adjusted to keep their same difficulty\challenge as they currently are at Rank 5. We are currently putting this through internal testing for vets and non vets.

Battle leveling stats has been increased to roughly a Veteran Rank 12 character with even distribution between stat picks and in moderate gear. This is also being tested with the above change to Cyrodiil being Vet 12.

XP for killing players has increased by 50% and we have increased the amount of XP you gain from various quests in Cyrodiil that were not already giving the highest XP reward possible.

We are currently looking at the values of monster XP in Cyrodiil vs. other Veteran Rank zones.



Like the siege damage changes, these will also skip PTS and hit live in a patch forthcoming in the next week (hopefully), so feedback here is appreciated for these changes.

    awesome !! this sounds awesome :)
    best in slot: is the armor, weapon, clothing look, pet, or no pet, jewelry, race, class, skill choices, amount of DPS, and skin color best fit to you and the way you wish to play and makes you feel good and performs what YOU think it should be.

    worst in slot: what you read in zone chat, and forum comment, and forum thread, and you tube video, and live streamer advice, and class rep advice, and guild chat advice, and whisper told you to wear, and use for skill, and dress like, and use for weapon and armor.

    Sorry boss.. know you have made tons of players happy today.. but.. have to ask:

    Under VR players will be autoleveled to VR12 in ALL campaigns? Including the under-VR? Other than Skill Points spent, which are now off-set by the Champ Points granted to lower level character, is there any reason to keep an under VR campaign? I mean, they will be a generic VR12, no matter if they are in BB or a "normal" campaign.

    Power level to CP160 in a week:
    Where is the end game? You just played it.
    Why don't I have 300+ skill points? Because you skipped content along the way.
    Where is new content? Sigh.

    It was July 20, 1969 when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, landed on the moon. But today, an even greater American Achievement has been achieved. In that Zenimax On-line Studios has listened to their PVP players.

    Thank you Brian. Thank you America.

    @ZOS_BrianWheeler , thanks for the info! Will battle leveling be available for VRs too? Right now it only works for nonvets. But to have it as an *option* if you're not yet VR14 would be nice. There is already an additional power gap due to CP differential.
    Disabling the grass may improve performance.
