So, newish? I played ESO a bit when it launched and wasn't impressed. I had heard the game was much much better and finally decided to give it another chance. And yes, its a much much improved game and I'm sticking around this time. So, I'd like to have some people to play with, so I believe a guild is in order.
Thinks outside the box? I understand that there is a meta, every game has one and most players stick to it. And I understand that mentality as I've had that same mentality at times. But I'm also a guy who likes to 'break' the game in other ways. I'm the guy who wants to find ways to do things that people say can't be done. I'm the guy who actually tanked in Vanilla
WoW on a paladin and made it work(keyword: vanilla). And ESO's skill building system lends itself very much to that sort of thinking. Now I currently don't have any really off-the-wall ideas, but I don't want to hear from people about how that's not the best way to do it (as I said, I'm aware there is a meta); I want to hear, "here's some ideas I think that might make it work." I realize this eliminates me from any leaderboard seeking and I'm okay with that. I realize this might also eliminate me from any high-end raiding and I'm okay with that.
With that said though, I don't run bad builds. Its one thing to think outside the box and be below optimal, its another thing to try to make something work that just isn't going to happen. I've currently got a level 32 warden who can tank the content at his level pretty well and can also switch out armor and weapons and do pretty good DPS (I think? no Damage Meters here). As I said, I haven't thought up anything really outside the box yet. I just want a guild that's not going to just shut me down for trying something different and fun.
Also, I'm fairly casual. I have other games I want to play. I have a pretty good non-digital social life that I'm unwilling to give up. If I had to take a guess, I think I play around 12 to 15 hours a week. I'm mostly running story missions or slipping into dungeons because I just enjoy running instances (also wanted to get a few pieces of loot to finish out a set). I do a bit of crafting, but its not an emphasis for me, its something fun to do on the side. I haven't tried ESO's PvP yet; although, I might take a dive in there at some point.
So I'm looking for a guild that is the following:
- PvE oriented
- Willing to play with someone who isn't looking to super-optimize
So, if you think I might fit into your guild, please contact me and we can talk... I tend not to commit on the first date.
