    Hey geo, the golden came out with some goods for me this weekend. Got a few Scathing necks and was really eyeballing them treasure hunter jewels but decided not to. Like the speed and all, but don’t have quite the reflexes to handle it. Lol

    Get your bash kills in tonight. It’s all going away tomorrow. 😝

    Probably accurate. Did you see the PC Cyrodiil thread about crashes after the DLC dropped? PvP might be going away tomorrow, not just bash... I hope I'm wrong.

    yeah, the front page can get a little discouraging with all the performance issues folks have...

    add in the constant rebalancing mode we've been in over the last couple of years...it can be a little more negativity than what I'll normally wanna see...

    it's funny, at this point @dotme you would think we must have seen the worst of it...not sure that's true though...

    sure never expected to be stuck in combat for a whole freaking year...

    not sure exactly how the goliath bash will look after the update, but, planning on building my level 45 necro stam around bashing and defiling...

    man, it's been since forever since I've had a crit focused build...

    what kind of character are you using it on?

    Kaal population for EP seems to be undergoing a seismic shift. I've seen hardly any "regulars" in Cyrodiil the past couple of days. Lots of frustration in zone chat. If some people follow through with their threats, it could be a blue map next campaign.

    And this is where Faction Lock becomes a problem, for everyone. Let's say a large-ish EP guild does decide to run a month on another faction. That could upset the balance so badly that the map turns one color, and all of us here know what happens then. The campaign effectively dies, leading to no good fights for anyone. A situation like that can't be fixed if everyone is locked in for 30 days.

    I really enjoy good PvP fights. But with the potential today for a patch that causes disconnects every 10 minutes in Cyrodiil combined with the massive balance changes, and these new games that might be poaching some of our regular players, I just hope ZOS isn't about to do irreversible damage to the PvP aspect of their game.

    I haven't played as much in Kaal lately, but it seems that hammer isn't putting in an appearance as often as it used to.

    I also noticed something strange last night - if I zoom in on a keep on the map and "X" to view levels, all the resources kept flipping from "0" to "2" and back again about every 2 seconds.

    Patch is 26gigs btw

    What do you mean 'disconnects every 10 minutes'?

    'Massive balance changes'

    PC players said it's pretty much a Magicka / DoT meta. Stack all the dots. I plan on running my MagSorc and taking off my Pet.

    Read down a ways. That's what happened to PC when this DLC launched. They got a patch 2 days ago, I believe. So if this issue does end up on Console, it could be a wait for a fix. I guess we'll find out soon.

    Well, got into Cyro and messed around for 15-20 min and no crash. So maybe we escaped the PC issue after all. That would be great.

    Went in to the 30 day for a little while last night. No crashes. Fights were much smoother and better. There was a load screen at a keep flip I woke up dead to.

    Performance was way far better than the ,last 3 months maybe 6.

    I dont know where all my Daggerfall brethren went off to? We had half the map when I got in. After an hour, we lost everything. I couldn’t find a big group to shadow around. It was pretty good anyways.

    Then I went to the imperial city. There was no bars, but plenty of people running around. It was enjoyable.

    I got ganked. Lethal arrow, DBoS, Silver leash? What do they silver leash for? I was dead before realized anything was going on.

    Silver leash is the Dks chains for everyone else and I do agree the game was way smoother than before

    been playing a bunch of cyro kaalgrontiid over on the EU server...some ups and downs...

    it's amazing the number of times I've wiped with small groups to npcs...

    couple of nights in a row found myself in a situation where it was just myself, or, one other - shot out to you hulkbuster - trying to defend or chase down our scroll...

    that soured me a bit...

    constantly getting targeted...i get it, who are people going to attack amongst a group of players - someone with max cp, or, the toon with level 45 over their head...it gets a little frustrating having to stay so defensive and still get run over by some players, my crit resistance is still low on everyone...I can get hit with some really big numbers...

    I have to be extra careful positioning myself in fights - lot of fights I'll have folks chasing me around like crazy...try breaking their line of sight, run through allies...still get run down more than I like...

    right now taking my 2 necros (EP and AD) through CP IC, having a blast with them...gotta be real careful up in the districts...going solo doesn't normally end well...

    usually I'll hang out by the ladders at the base and just tag along with someone(s) heading up top...

    gotten lucky a few times to be able to shadow some small groups of allies to take out some of the district bosses...only a few faction fights so far...

    down in the sewers just try to stay around other allies, and be careful fighting the bannerman...all long range stuff...

    been thinking about having some fun with my nightblades over on NA CP IC...it'll be fun tuning them up just for IC ganking...

    although in the past when I've done this - a lot of times I felt kind of bad attacking folks traveling solo, and had trouble pulling the trigger...

    I don't know, got plenty of gear for the job, it'll be fun just setting them up...

    played DC on both severs on CP IC today...both cases red had larger groups and yellow had better small man groups roaming around...

    was able to meet up and shadow a few ally small groups around the flags...lots of times had to cloak/slink :( away when larger enemy groups came to run us down...pretty much just stayed up on the districts and only used the eleven garden ladder to return back to base...

    best thing about playing a magblade - you can mostly choose your encounters, and when you die...hardly anyone slots magelight or runs detect pots...

    I like doing solo questa...took my level 45 eu magblade and just finished 4 of the district quests...got really lucky with defeat molag bal's temple forces in the temple district...

    there's this daedric titan with wicked ranged attacks you have to fight inside a fairly tight space ...got lucky and two enemy players were doing the quest and mostly let me hang on the outside and fire away without trying to kill me too many times...

    I already know that one quest where you have to defend the doors is gonna be torture doing solo :#

    about the most irritating situation I ran in to was the quest where you have to draw a seal on a wall - sounds simple enough right...

    the wall is dead smack in the middle of the district, right in front of the district flag and ran in to both enemy alliances at different times camping the quest location...that didn't make me smile...finally was able to get enough time while this one camping duo was fighting some npcs...

    cloak is a beautiful thing for getting out of bad situations...as well as potions...remembered why the buildings were so important - sustain can really become an issue there - particularly if you don't have champion points helping you out, and, your gear isn't completely optimized...needed to spend time occasionally hiding inside buildings recovering resource pools...

    not really making a ton of tel var, about 1.5k per district mission, but, having fun avoiding "deadly" situations...got the ambiance, footsteps, music, and dialogue levels all turned up :p

    trying to remember to look for all the skyshards in IC...
