I'm sure ZOS has a lot more in store for this year than what we saw in the global reveal yesterday, and personally I'm really excited for Scribing, but the whole presentation did feel a bit lackluster, especially with having in mind that this year will be the game's 10th anniversary. Therefore, I'm really hoping they have a special quest or event in the works to celebrate all that has happened in the game the past ten years, and all that the Vestige has accomplished.
For instance, they could do a special quest to coincide with the anniversary where the Vestige is having a dream, and in the dreams she is walking through different landscapes and meets characters that she has adventured with, or NPCs that featured prominently in stories, like the companions, the alliance leaders, the NPCs from the original Mage's/Fighter's Guild quests, and so on... they could each have a small dialogue and then bestow a gift to the Vestige (that surprisingly enough is still there when she wakes up), and this can be anniversary gifts for the players. A dream won't interfere with the canon in the game, and in this way we can revisit characters and places. Something like this would obviously require a lot of voice actors etc., but it's the 10th year, it should be something involved and special, not the same old prologue to the chapter, not the same old Jubilee event, but something separate, poignant and memorable.
Maybe ZOS does have something like this in mind already (I don't know if @ZOS_Kevin
can at least nod enigmatically
), but it's a really big milestone for the game and the player base, and I do hope we will be able to celebrate it accordingly.
