    ESO Live Question: When Tamerial One hit all the trials dropped certain item sets that were tradable because of that there was a mass influx of players interested in doing trials content. Would you ever considering introducing that back into the game to give more incentive to do pve content?

    Some suggestions: Take all the sets that drop in the zones and give them a chance to drop on the last boss of one of the trials so each trial would drop a certain amount of sets. There would be a chance to get gold jewelry or gold weapons that had a weighted drop chance for precise sharpened or defending. That would also allow for people to farm for gold mats in a more fun and entertaining way.

    The Place by Tony Walsh Please Read
    This is the place in the North West of England

    It’s ace, it’s the best and the songs that we sing

    From the stands, from our bands set the whole planet shaking

    Our inventions are legends! There’s nowt we can’t make and

    So we make brilliant music. We make brilliant bands

    We make goals that make souls leap from seats in the stands

    And we make things from steel and we make things from cotton

    And we make people laugh, take the mick summat rotten

    And we make you at home and we make you feel welcome

    And we make summat happen, we can’t seem to help it

    And if you’re looking for history then yes, we’ve a wealth

    But the Manchester way is to make it yourself

    And make us a record, a new number one

    And make us a brew while you’re up, love. Go on!

    And make us feel proud that you’re winning the league

    And make us sing louder and make us believe it

    that this is the place that has helped shape the world

    And that this the place where a Manchester girl

    Name of Emmeline Pankhurst from the streets of Moss Side

    Led a Suffragette City with sisterhood pride

    And this is the place with appliance of science

    We’re on it, atomic, we strut with defiance

    In the face of a challenge we always stand tall

    Mancunians in union delivered it all

    Such as housing and libraries, and health, education

    And unions and co-ops, the first railway station

    So we’re sorry! Bear with us! We invented commuters!

    But we hope you forgive us – we invented computers!

    And this is the place Henry Royce strolled with Rolls

    And we’ve rocked and we’ve rolled with our own Northern Soul

    And so this is the place to do business, then dance

    Where go-getters and goal setters know they’ve a chance

    And this is the place where we first played as kids

    And me Mam lived and died here, she loved it she did

    And this is the place where our folks came to work

    Where they struggled in puddles, they hurt in the dirt

    And they built us a city. They built us these towns

    And they coughed on the cobbles to the deafening sound

    Of the steaming machines and the screaming of slaves

    They were scheming for greatness, they dreamed to their graves

    And they left us a spirit, they left us a vibe

    The Mancunian Way to survive and to thrive

    And to work and to build, to connect and create and

    Greater Manchester’s greatness is keeping it great

    And so this is the place now we’ve kids of our own

    Some are born here, some drawn here but we all call it home

    And they’ve covered the cobbles, but they’ll never defeat

    All the dreamers and schemers who still teem through these streets

    Because this is a place that has been through some hard times

    Oppressions, recessions, depressions and dark times

    But we keep fighting back with Greater Manchester spirit

    Northern grit, northern wit in Greater Manchester’s lyrics

    And there’s hard times again in these streets of our city

    But we won’t take defeat and we don’t want your pity

    Because this a place where we stand strong together

    With a smile on our face, Mancunians Forever

    And we’ve got this* as the place where a team with a dream (*Forever Manchester)

    Can get funding and something to help with their scheme

    Because this is the place that understands your grand plans

    We don’t do No Can Do, we just stress Yes We Can!

    Forever Manchester’s a charity for people round ‘ere

    You can fundraise, donate. You can be a volunteer

    You can live local, give local. We can honestly say

    We do charity differently, that Mancunian Way

    And we fund local kids, and we fund local teams

    We support local dreamers to work for their dreams

    We support local groups and the great work they do

    So can you …help us help… local people like you?

    Because this is the place in our hearts, in our homes

    Because this is the place that’s a part of our bones

    ‘Cos Greater Manchester gives us such strength from the fact

    That this is the place. We should give something back.

    Always remember. Never forget. Forever Manchester.

    One question concerning the warden:
    Why is it the only class that still has access to major mending?
    Wouldn't it be much more in line with the Templar, if Accelerated Growth would give minor mending, maybe for a longer time (e.g. 10s) and activated by any healing ability?
    Even with only 3s duration of major mending one can get 100% uptime in important healing phases (e.g. Mage execute phase, warrior starfall, etc.), just by using fungal growth every 3 sec between healing springs.

    Another general question:
    Will any changes to the loot system be included in the Morrowind patch?
    Farming set (Moondancer, Master Architect, ...) and vMA weapons is still a pain, since there were no changes to the trait balance, so there are still only 1-3 useful traits for most builds and most sets still drop completely useless weapons like bows for magicka DPS sets, or staffs for stamina DPS sets.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno Good morning!!

    I won't be able to watch the live stream but I would greatly appreciate if this can get some clarity. I posted this elsewhere

    I want to trigger major mending for my healing ult remembrance/practice incantation.

    Resto heavy attack grants major mending for 3 seconds after.

    Remembrance lasts 4 seconds
    Practiced Incantation 6 seconds.

    So for 1 second, or 3 seconds, the major mending drops off. I have no idea if this is the intended design. I know in the past just casting rite of passage and morphs would grant major mending to the heal. It now grants minor, that's cool, but the idea the major mending drops off mid ult after executing an attack is, well, clunky. I've never really thought of the ESO combat system as being "clunky". This seems out of the norm.

    It's just a practical scenario that leaves me a bit confused.

    Thank you!!

    When are you actually going introduce something worthwile regarding housing? At it's current state waste of gold, crowns, etc.

    There were talk that lorebook library would have been introduced. So that you do NOT need go boring lorebook hunting with every single character. Why has this NOT in the game as it should be? (Should be enough to do that grind with 1 single character).

    It seems that reporting cheating and other offensive is waste if everyones time. Do you actually read the tickets raised? Seems at the moment that those reports goes to junk mail and you get automated bla bla bla bla.

    Finally you have been nerfing Templars now a lot. Why? It becoming most obsolete class and it should have class characterics that mean something. Personally VERY VERY unhappy with recent nerfs and have put EsoPlus+ membership on "ice" until further notice and will hold out buying morrowind as well.
  • Zaldan
    Why is it you can fix classes to balance their performance against other classes but there are abilities that remain broken for years? Huge changes to templar but gap closer STILL doesn't actually work 70-90% of the time.

    Eso Live question:
    With some of the crafted sets previously introduced and new ones along with changes to how certain skills work, it seems you are pushing for hybrid builds. How do you see a current player embracing this and making so their build has the ability to do decent damage in ESO end game? If this seems to be a place where you are pushing players can you please explain how you see this working and how you have much you have tested said builds?

    I understand most of the higher end player base would laugh at this type of question or if this was a goal of recent changes and simply say it doesn't work. I would like to hear if this is a goal or not. I will endeavor to overcome and adapt as always as us humans do.

    Question 1:

    Will Nightblade/Siphoning attacks recieve a further review with the following in mind:

    a) sustain is now worse than not using it.

    This is shown in Gilliams video linked in this therad:

    b) NB's (pre current changes) only account for less that 1 in 10 spaces in an end game trial (leaderboards). This shows where they actually are as a class not where they are percieved to be. I cannot see these changes will make that any closer to one in four or one in five after morrowind.

    This is data is from a thread here: which you have actually thanked the OP for posting

    c) NB's seem to be lacking in the clear vision meta department. Removing a NB's sustain is like removing a DK's ability to tank, a sorc to do DPS and a templar to heal, yet it is not replaced with anything.

    d) All other classes still have some form of resource sustain. Sorcs were not changed at all (really) and DK's were left with at least 60% of thier previous class sustain. Under some circumstances it can even be considered a boost. It has also done nothing to remove perma blocking from this class increasing the gap between meta for the DK tank and any other class tank.

    Question 2: (and somewhat more light hearted)

    Will you employ Gilliam the Rogue? :)

    5. Are you considering making 2 handed weapons count as 2 pieces to set bonuses?

    I would also like to know the answers to this.

    Will any changes be made to rectify the significant drop off that a player experiences in damage dealing when they divide their attributes evenly among health, magicka, and stamina?

    The current system very much penalizes hybrid builds.
  • Jailbirdy

    Can you mention a little more about the new event coming up? When is it (dates)?

    Also, will we be able to pre-download the expansion (that would save a ton on server lag that day)?

    How complete is Update 14 aka Morrowind?
    How soon will the rest of the voiceovers appear? (Every beta I have participated in since pre-launch needed voiceovers up until 2 weeks before launch. Why would this one be different? ..Are we on schedule?)
    Are the major class balance changes done, or can we expect a radical rewrite in 5 weeks, like players keep asking for?

    Simple and hopefully not-too-loaded question:

    What is your answer to people who feel that their sustain is already too low in the current live game?

  • Rinmaethodain
    In PTS 3.0.0 a developer comment near change:
    "Reduced the cooldown for being charged Stamina or Magicka to block an attack to 0.25 seconds from 0.5 seconds."
    tells us:
    "In PvE encounters, this will encourage tanks to use Block more tactically for the larger, more deadly hits."

    Explain please, if you want to encourage tanks to "Block more tactically" then why large portion of PVE content is still designed where "blocking = live" and "not blocking = insta death" (even with maximum 50% armor mitigation)? There is no middle ground, dropping block or even weapon swapping during block can wipe whole group. Encounters like vHRC The Warrior fight, vCOS Velidreth fight (where amount of stray damage makes permablocking unavoidable), vAA axe tanking, vMOL Rakkhat (where minigun attack ticks damage every ~350ms) and many more do not leave any space for "tactical blocks".

    Please keep in mind that not everyone plays with perfect 70 ping. For people who play in Asia and Oceania region on NA server its normal for ping to never go below 200ms.

    My question: How do you plan to modify current existing content (current trials and dungeons) to adjust them for your ideology and vision behind tanking where PVE tank should "block tactically"?

    Since you're making every class viable as a healer with the Orb synergy change. Have you considered changing Silver Leash so that it can pull an enemy to the caster; giving every class a means of pulling which is incredibly useful as a tank.
