This will help all you new to ESO and comes from my own personal experiences so far:
You will soon find you run out of storage quickly! You get a base of 60 Slots, it fills up soon enough!
You can create other characters that all have the same access to your own ESO bank account
When you create a character it gets a base of 60 slots and you can take/deposit stuff, sell it etc
You will get a total of 7 extra player slots to create, giving you 420 in total storage across them.
Always log out of the character close to their home banker. so that when you log back in to see their inventory
you can easily access the banker.
The cons: having to constantly log in/out of each character
Also make a note of roughly what each character holds - as you cant see it in the immediate home character screen
so at least you can keep a tab on what's stored with each character, saving time loading them up to see what they are carrying.
You will eventually get a storage chest of 30 slots that can be put in a home you choose
so that also adds some vital extra storage.
That's easy just rent a free room in an Inn for now. You get a free room at many of the Inns around Tamriel
You can download a list of all rooms - don't save all your gold and buy a place, wait to you level up as the cheapest is around 42,000 gold!!
You can go to the crown store and get the housing list that also includes rooms at Inns at the Quest Starters icon
It will appear in your supplies list under "Trophy" as "Room to Spare" Housing Brochure and for now is FREE
I'm at the Rosy Lion in Daggerfall, its small but I only want to keep a place for my storage chest for now. that's really all you need to start
I still haven't brought a house - and don't really need to do so for now, Im just levelling up as much as I can and saving up gold for other things.
3. Daily Rewards
Always check your notifications in your character menu
These contain a daily reward item, I think early on you get a storage chest, potions, new non combat pets
new ride on pets, gold, lots and lots of great stuff!! so always check! Im about to get 100k in gold soon so its really worth
checking every day! - so keep logging in and playing!
(Ive been playing around 5-6 weeks now.)
4. Outfit station.
This is a cool place to get pseudo armour & weaponry and colour items to your own taste
As you complete quests and learn about woodworking, blacksmith, clothing etc it will release
a series of Pseudo armour that layers over the top of your normal armour when chosen and applied
So you can end up with some amazing looking outfits without having to collect the real thing
Once an items become available they will become highlighted in the creation screen. greyed out
ones are still needed to be collected from doing a quest
Clothing Motifs (Pseudo armour/weapons to layer over the top of your normal armour)
This is what enables Pseudo Armour, Weapons etc to be layered over your real armour
giving really cool appearances. Learn Clothing Motifs from dungeon quests, trade or ask from guild mates
or you can buy some cheaply at Guild traders in most cities
To buy them to to each Guild trader and check out prices and styles etc
Click on Guild Trader
Scroll down to ALL ITEMS and change to CRAFTING
on second option change to CLOTHING
MOTIFS should be default at this option below - if not select MOTIFS
This will show a list of all Crafting Motifs. The Motifs book will appear
Purchase the Motif Book or Scroll for a particular armour or weapon, (Usually these are crafted by other players)
Once purchased - it will be sent by email to you
Go to your inventory
New mail will arrive with the item in an attachment to the mail.
*Sometimes it takes a few minutes for the trade to complete - dont worry
keep playing and shortly a Mail notification will arrive
Go to your inventory
Click on SUPPLIES
the Motif Book or Scroll will be listed - click on it and activate to learn
It will now appear in your Motif Pseudo armour as an item to cloak over or armour at Outfit stations!
You can quickly check anytime what your Armour,Weapon Motifs are by going to your inventory
click on COLLECTIONS
scroll to ARMOUR STYLES / WEAPON STYLES to see what your Motifs are
Taking items to crafting stations is a good way of getting new colours quickly
If you don't need to sell them for gold then deconstruct the items in the crafting stations
at any city. Deconstruction will help you learn colours
These ones are at the bottom of the colour lists.
Colours are learnt from a number of different activities - so patience will be needed
but you will get some nice ones to apply to the either Pseudo armour or real armour that's presently equipped to you.
Definitely join a guild, it has a lot of benefits!
One of the best things is the free travel it will give you to other players in the guild, saves you on gold
to get somewhere. Once your a member of a guild (You can join up to 5)
-go to character menu
click on SOCIAL
scroll through names - places they are presently in map
click on character
scroll down to option TRAVEL TO PLAYER
you then instantly get transported to that part of the map for free!
Always try and deposit some things of value to the guilds bank, helps the guild sell goods and keeps you
in the good books with the Guild as it shows your trying to contribute even at lower levels. Once you have some spare items of value of course.
Go to town Banker
select Guild Bank
select "Y" on Xbox display all guild bank accounts
select the Guild you want to access
Scroll to submenu at top allowing deposit option
It will bring up your own inventory and then select any items of value that you would like to donate to Guild
PS: Guildmasters dont like receiving trash or junk items that have no value so make sure they have some Gold value
Guild members will also help you level up, give tips and also sometimes even gifts
if your lucky enough to get to be friends with the master crafters or higher ranking members
Go to character menu
select ACTIVITY FINDER
select DUNGEON FINDER
select RANDOM DUNGEONS + RANDOM NORMAL DUNGEONS
press "X" or select yes to join queue, depending on PC, console etc
This will take you into a group quest to explore a dungeon and complete a quest with 3 other players
What you get - Lots of nice stuff from conquered enemies, chests and boss fight wins
Others in your group will help protect you somewhat - but you want to have
some level of experience and armour first so as to contribute to fights - so complete a handful of quests and concentrate on getting your weapon skills up
as you may find that your armour and weapon level is not adequate - but give it a go! if you find your getting though dungeons Ok in the Group
it will provide great levels of XP. Make sure you click on every conquered enemy and take all their items!! Also quickly check Jars and Urns along the way
If you lose the group - click on the map viewer button (small button below to left of Xbox button - if using Xbox) that brings up dungeon map
and shows what way to go to reach to quest mates again.
This should get you started in the first couple of weeks questing and exploring!
If you have Qs about anything get in touch will try and help out
Have a great time!!!!
