I’m finding myself hooked on leveling the new character created in EU for the Community Psijic Villa event!
Last night, I ran a random daily Battleground, Dungeon, did writs, trained horse, joined an Alik’r Desert Dolmen Farm, etc. went up 10 levels in no time. Joined undaunted. Had to find spindleclutch. Joined mages guild, fighters guild, thieves guild, dark brotherhood etc. Basically Getting ready. Im even researching crafting stuff.
Went to Cyrodil and find that to be just too rough on low toon. The slow mount speed and easy get killed starts getting to ya very quick. Maybe it’s just playing Daggerfall toons. We suck. Oh, and if I wanted to get to the imperial city...forget about it. Not making it to the imperial city and certainly ain’t doing anything there if you do.
Battlegrounds are where it’s at to get AP for them alliance war skill lines. It’s fun, fast paced, actually stand a chance..maybe not high level toons, but for me it feels right on.
The game feels much more streamlined than it used to. And yeah, I’m kind of rushing it. I imagine most newer players probably do. Haven’t really bothered with much questing. Having a blast running around doing things. Leveling rewards stuff is very cool.
I’m having more fun with this guy than I do on max level toons.
So to that, I’d have to say Good Job ZOS!
That’s probably more important a job to get new players hooked or like this game than pacify old timers gripping about everything you try to change.
I have been cheating. I’ve used guild members to transport around Tamriel and open up the map. I think there’s a way to do it proper, but that could take some time. All the DLC areas have one wayshrine in them. I could see that helping new players out a bit if there were one wayshrine open in every zone maybe. Just a thaught.
Daily log in rewards. Well, I started a bit late. But if anything useful could be changed here, get rid of the soul gems and crown repair kits, and put more mount training stuff in there.
Putting on the writs. Guild traders have saved me a ton of leg work getting mats to do writs. Strikes me odd that on my NA account, I’ve got thousands of this stuff, never even use it. Then I come here and I got nothing. You know, daily log in for some potatoes might not be a bad idea.
