[PS4] Some questions from a new player

I'll keep this short.

What's going on with no text channels in eso? Every mmo has then. Even warframe on the consoles has this.

PvP seems to be a mess without text channels. There's no way to state you're lfg or communicate a push. Voip doesn't do it because, from what I've seen nobody uses it.

Is there any point to actually PvPing before max level? I come from a huge pvp back in games like DAoC, Warhammer, WoW, even Dark Souls if you would consider. Everytime I PvP I just get blown the *** up. I ambush for 1k. I get ambushed for 4k. Are there consumables I need to start using or something?

This is a very lonely mmo on consoles. Of course there are a crap ton of people that play, but you either have to use voip, hope they're using voip, or spam the limited premade text bubbles above your head and hope someone sees them and understands the context.

    Don't pvp much myself but go to the nonvet campaign black water I think Use foods for buffs can buy them or learn to craft them yourself and check the bottom of the forum main page many guilds recruiting players there your best source of help

    Basically go the the guild forum, find a good guild in your alliance that pvp's. Join the guild chat and go around with them.

    If your new to the game then your going to need a build, learn rotations etc.... Like everyone else had too.

    Also 100% go to the non cp campaigns until you get around 300+ cp. You'll figure out what they are when you hit vet ranks.

    No one goes into local voice chat because it's full of whiney kids and people who decide blasting music down a mic is a good idea.
    PS4 EU DC

    Current CP : 756+

    I have every character level 50, both a magicka and stamina version.


    RIP my effort to get 5x v16 characters...
