    Will we hear about the new DLC soundtrack being released (or has that been cancelled)? Really hope it hasn't as the new music is gorgeous.

    Some key points that have come up on the forums include things like templars needing attention, stam sorcs needing to be acknowledged, heavy armor feeling useless, among other reactions to the balance changes. Are there any things that could be shared in advance information wise as to what may be said, or which direction these things will be taken?

    Eric, are you aware that Flurry (and morphs) from the Dual Wield line still doesn't proc Critical Surge heals? Is there any chance this could be fixed before TG goes live? It would be nice for Sorcs to have an alternative to Wrecking Blow.

    Also, are you aware that Conjured Ward (and morphs) still doesn't refresh to full strength when cast on Summoned Pets? It only works when the Ward is completely depleted, which is usually too late. This is a huge obstacle to keeping the pets alive in actual combat.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno , could you please pass on these two issues to Eric and the other developers?

    They already said in the previous episode that all of the group trial weeklies--AA, HRC, SO, DSA, and MOL--will grant something from one of the four new trial sets.

    Yes I saw that. I just want clarification that masters weapons will no longer drop for the dsa weekly. Will the trial weekly consist only of the new sets or do they simply have a chance to drop now.

    1.Will it be possible to wear skin and costume simultaneously? As far as i know it was planned to be implemented into new dlc.
    2. When will be released new dro-m'athra costume pack?
    3. Any improvements for heavy armor passives?
    4. When templar will get DK treatment, i.e. serious buffs?
    5. Any plans to increase radius of Forward Camps a bit?
    6. Will Fasalla Guile set loose jewel parts to be on par with other sets?
    7. Are you planning to improve Lord Warden monster set? This is most weakest set that drop from most hardest dung.

    @Wrobel @ZOS_GinaBruno

    On ESO Live Episode 11 aired on 02/13/2015, one day shy of a year ago today, you were asked why Templar Ability Toppling charge is the ONLY gap closer in the game with a global cooldown that prevents the immediate use of a skill directly afterward.

    You said this was a bug and you were "looking into getting it fixed."

    Discussion @59m35s
    https://youtube.com/watch?v=KSjxZZTS1Uw#t=59m35s


    As we prepare to celebrate the anniversary of this skill being still bugged, I was wondering if you could do something special for us and explain the unique history and lore behind this issue and why the cooldown was added to the skill originally shortly after game launch. It is a source of both wonder and consternation in the Templar community.

    Thank you and Happy Toppling Charge Day!

    And this day shall be known as... Toppling Charge day!

    I suppose it's the right place to ask the question so here's mine.
    Based on this thread: http://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/237673/should-magic-users-do-more-damage-with-staves-than-when-dual-wielding/p1
    Do you plan to do something with the fact that nowdays players who use magicka deal more spell damage while dual-wielding than while wielding the staves? This is not only unreasonable and illogical, but it also devalues destro staves and quite discourages DDs to use them at all.
    Taking into account the poll inside the above thread, most people are in favor of some changes.

    Here are some questions (plus bonus softball question if you want that instead)
    1. Will a cold damage ability be added to the game or changed from an existing skill? Currently there are zero cold based abilities in the game and the only way to focus cold damage is via an occasional ice comet ultimate.
    2. What are the current plans for utilizing the newly unlocked 7th core on PS4?
    3. Will customized controller button mapping come to consoles? If not, can you add more presets? How about a forum feedback thread suggesting new presets?
    4. Activating synergies is error-prone on console and is a time sensitive requirement which causes deaths during vMSA and ICP. Can you change the default button mapping to a single button? On dualshock 4 there are two pressure plates (left and right) behind the touchpad which you have both assigned to map but one of them could be synergy. On xbone it could be LS + RS. Alternatively, no one really uses right on the D-pad to change the quest so that could be remapped to synergy.
    5. There were hints earlier about a return appearance of Naryu in future DLC. Can you give us some teasers?
    6. Are there any plans to add second screen support for consoles? For example viewing the Cyrodiil map on your phone/tablet while riding around without stopping.
    7. (For Eric)-In a previous ESOlive you stated that the reason dual wielding swords does more spell damage than a staff is because it lacks the ability to do heavy attacks to regain magicka. This answer, however, ignores the fact that weapon switching exists in the game so magic can be regained by switching weapons. Can you please review the discussion that has taken place in the related topic in the combat mechanics forum? Many magicka players feel they are being railroaded into dual wielding swords because the alternatives are far inferior.
    8. vMSA is currently only able to be completed by DPS spec. Tanks and healers spec are unable to participate in this content without creating new gear, spending coin to reset our skills to DPS, and abandoning our guildmates for at least a week or two to attempt the new content. Will new content be released in the future that cater only to tanks or only to healers?

    Can you explain the thought process behind the major buffs to magelight and simultaneous major nerfs to stealth. I'm not suggesting nothing should have been done, but to a lot of us it seems like you went too far, please enlighten us.

    Could you guys talk about changing Dual Wield because right its only used primarily for the dmg passive or whirlwind.
    Here are some ideas
    Twin Slashes and its morphs should be changed to a gap closer while keeping their current abilities
    Flurry either have an increase in dmg or shorten channel time also proc crit surge
    Blade cloak should increase movement speed buff duration also grant Major Brutality
    Hidden blade reduce the dmg but immobilize target for 2 seconds
    Whirlwind should stay as is

    Igneous morphs should be major Brut only and add something extra to the caster like heavy attack damage or speed.
  • MrJagermeister
    TESO continues to introduce content that requires mobility, but expects Templars to remain stationary. Do you have any plans to increase our mobility or allow our channeled focus to move with us, similar to how Proximity Detonation works?
