    Well, I meant, as a full faction with its skill line. It'd be a nice new way to PvP. Imagine, for example, having to sneak your way to secret documents before an adversarial team gets there or get them out of a Fortress. Or extracting a covert agent before he gets discovered, while the opposite team gather clues in order to discover who he is. It would open many new small-scale PvP possibilities. :)

    But true, you're right. I expressed myself very badly. And now, I'm going to express myself even worse before sleep. Ghaaaahh!!!

    So, clearly an aerial picture of Red Mountain erupting. My problem is that a Vvardenfell ESO thing is not big enough, even with Clockwork City tossed in. Hines already said no remaster of Morrowind. Are they just making excitement for something not that big?

    It's not enough. It will only be enough once Raz tells me the story about the time when he rode a Guar naked into an Argonian temple.
    Just so that everyone knows, my Altmer still can't have black hair. About a dozen of Altmer NPCs in the game have black hair. Just saying.

    Meet my characters:
    Command: Do the thing.

    Zadarri, Khajiit Fist of Thalmor: The thing was done, as commanded.
    Durza gra-Maghul, Orc blacksmith: The thing was done perfectly, in the most efficient way.
    Tegwen, Bosmer troublemaker: You can't prove I didn't do the thing.
    Sings-Many-Songs, Argonian fisher: Sure, I'll do the thing... Eventually. Maybe.
    Aerindel, Altmer stormcaller: After extensive research, I've come to the conclusion that doing the thing would be a waste of resources.
    Liliel, Dunmer pyromancer: Aerindel said I shouldn't do the thing. Something about "resources".
    Gyda Snowcaller, Nord cryomancer: I will find a way to do it that won't waste resources and make Aerindel proud of me.
    Beatrice Leoriane, Breton vampire: I persuaded someone else into doing the thing. You are welcome, dear.
    Sahima, Redguard performer: Doing the thing sounds awfully unpleasant and really not my problem.
    Ellaria Valerius, Imperial priestess: I'll pray to the Eight for the thing to be done, if it is Their will.

    Wasn't the last time that a Bethesda suit was involved was when they announced they were dropping subs and going B2P....

    6K Crown motif...

    10K Crown Houses...

    F2P?


    (OK probably not but that 10K Manor is $73 real US dollars! If the largest manor furnished was say 15K Crowns, that's $109. How much is the Cavern or the Island going to cost? 20K Crowns is $145!!!)

    Dont know whats the reason to hype new things before homestead reach live server. This is something you do after normally... But maybe the critics about homestead are to big and the hypetrain shall choo choo the critics down...

    Hope they dont change everything again and again, before just fixing the base...

    Vvradenfell announcement i think.
    Also a new classe
    And gearcap rising with a new loot balancing, because class balancing was so perfect in homestead

    Well anything which is non-work hours for the US would be late for most of Europe.
    If they wanted to be inclusive to any many as possible it would have to be about this time but also on a weekend.

    Please show data that the majority of their customers live in the Americas. :) I have a regular job and I'm home at 8pm when it happens. That said, maybe do it on a weekend next time so more people have a chance to watch live?

    Okay this has hardly anything to do with the current speculation i'm just throwing in a neat idea i've been cooking for a while now. Imagine a new class to freshen up the options, called Naturalist. The three skill lines are called Druidism, Shamanism, and... I dont have a word for it but something.. Monk-like?

    Druidism will have new ways to utilise battle pets that don't suck, Shamanism will be.. well just imagine the badass attack animations of the Minotaur Shamans in the Gold Coast. The monky subclass will focus on martial knowledge (maybe call it martialism then?) and focus on passives and actives that CHANGE and scale different depending on your equipped armour weight and weapon type.

    I imagine something like this could be done, albeit with much more skill and finesse than it took me to detail it just now.

    Console maintenance was probably "regularly scheduled" but they forgot to put it on the list. It would not be the first time that they did this on a Monday. They could have also added it to "clear the pipes" if people have been having problems.

    As for the ESO Store and Account system, this is down so much for maintenance that it is impossible to say. It apparently has to go down every time they sneeze. I suspect an architectural bottleneck in their backend server design.

    Website is an outlier, and is probably to prep stuff for the announcement today.
