• PC/Mac: No maintenance – February 26

I am so excited for the new subregion Dawnwood.

I can't wait to meet all the people in Vashabar, to explore the new wood and learn why it's happened. The green is ever growing and changing, it only makes sense that Y'ffres firstborn would want to stretch its legs and grow.
New furnishings, New housing assets, New lore and characters.

I'm not that big a fan of the Decendants of the Nedes. So the Colovian parts of the zone interest me little.

But this new dawnwood section is the only new bosmer content we have gotten in 10 years. And I'm grateful for every little bit.

    Agree! The jungle areas they showed in the preview looked amazing and I'm also stoked for those furnishing assets.

    It seems there's a bit of nostalgia for Skingrad, which I don't have since I didn't play Oblivion. The aesthetic seems more similar to all the chapters between Elsweyr and Apocrypha.

    Bosmer are my fav! I recommend reading the book Words And Philosophy from TES:Skyrim. I wanted to make a character Allena Benoch in ESO, but the name was taken :(

    If there’s new Bosmer furnishings, architecture, foliage, etc. then I’m excited. If it’s just 2014 Grahtwood assets then I wish it was just traditional West Weald.

    Bosmer bore me and I really do not like their aesthetic. That being said their stuff are mostly old, tired, terrible 1999 era looking assets. The new stuff should be higher poly and greater texture resolution. I'd love to see some new, large majestic trees. Flower adorned bits and bobs and a massive treehouse player home.

    I play mostly magicka classes, so races that do not lend to my magical builds are not that interesting to me.

    the new stuff does look higher poly.
    and the old furniture is only assets from the base game so 2010's.
    1999 would have been way way way blurrier and look out of place in this game.

    here is how Dawnwood will look according to recent pictures and the livestream.

    if any pictures are blurry it's because my YouTube didn't wanna give me a consistent higher resolution.

    The Snugpod definitely looks 2014 it could be placeholder or I could just be wrong but yeah hoping for some new furnishing and architecture. I think at the very least we’ll get ancestral Bosmer.

    Hmm. Wonder if there's any congruence with the Dawnwood Indrik....

    If we think of the forest to have grown just now, it doesn't really make sense that these Indriks already existed years before. Unless officially, all events of ESO are happening more or less at the same time.

    Yes, there is that. It would be interesting to know if anyone even thought about the name of the Indrik....

    I figured they both were named in relation to the Dawn Era.

    That's a bit more complex than I had in mind. For me, looking at the indrik, it actually exemplifies "dawn in a wood/forest" in the spring to me.

    And of course we don't really know what Dawnwood will be like.... or what the lore behind it is - yet. If ever.

    Description of the Dawnwood Indrik:
    "These magical creatures have a special relationship to Y'ffre the nature god, and seem to draw strength from the very bones of the earth beneath their hooves. It's a privilege for a mortal rider to be borne by such an enchanted beast."

    Description of the small pet version, the Springtide Indrik:
    "For mortals good in heart and soul, being in the presence of a Springtide Indrik induces serenity and makes anger almost impossible—though paradoxically it also inspires a righteous determination to fight injustice."

    So, yes, the big one has an Ehlnofey reference.

    Yes.... but are we expecting something Ehlnofey in regards to Dawnwood in the Chapter?

    Honestly? I can't be sure of course, but somehow I doubt it. I was replying (although I forgot to quote it) to the idea that the Dawnwood Indrik's naming might be related to the Dawn era, and that seems to be the case (unless it's also only coincidence and they only mentioned the Ehlnofey because they relate it to Valenwood). When it comes to Dawnwood though, maybe they just thought that "dawn" would fit a thing that just began to exist, as it it the case with the newly grown forest. We'll see!

    That's a thought! Yeah, actually that makes more sense than the Dawn Era thing....

    I say most did the quests in order is glad to reach Reaper March and get ordered to burn down the trees 😺
    3 zones with bosmers does that. Also not using wood limit designs of furniture a lot in addition to being old content.
    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    I'm on the other side let down that another part of imperial content would be overtaken by other race, yet again. Not that imperials are as nuanced as they were before Oblivion.

    I confess, High Isle and Necrom (even though I simp for Dunmer and Hermie) did not encourage me as much as Gold Road. I guess I will give in to temptation.
    My wishlist for ESO
    I.Skills:
    >>weapons: Polearms, Unarmed, Crossbow

    >>Sorc's Twilight - perched animation

    >>a skill line - a guild having this - to enable us to increase % gold gain for donating Ornate gear (another gold sink in order to gain more pennies - but over time it would pay off)

    II.Overland Mechanics
    >>tree climing in Grahtwood / Malabal Tor / Greenshade, etc. (with tall trees)

    >>rock climbing in Glenumbra / Rivenspire / Stonefalls, etc. (with tall peaks)

    >>new skill lines - Adventure (enable climbing, increase flora and fauna harvesting chances)

    III.CP 2.0
    >>Craft Tree development

    III.Replayable content in overland
    >>pocket rifts to Oblivion - eg. to Vaermina's in Stormhaven, Boethiah's in Deshaan, Hircine's in the Rift OR in Bankgorai, etc. to get Daedric Sets relevant to the Prince, something like Oblivion rifts in Blackwood / the Deadlands

    IV.Geography
    >>Pyandonea - we had some quests WITH Maormer (Summerset, High Isle) - maybe we could meet them there? Poke poke, nudge nudge, wink wink, eh ZOS?

    V.Other
    (the ideas are also inspired by other Forum Users' posts)
    >>pet battles! We collect SO MANY pets, and yet there are just a cosmetic. What a HUGE potential lies within those tiny beats!

    >>ASOC - a new server in Asia and Oceania. If people have a bad ping there, it would be great if they had a server reaching their places more easily. And hey, it would make THREE servers, not two.

    >>possibility to dye barding

    >>display the dialogue options so that we can see which answer the NPC is reacting to

    >>a way to make Overland more challenging - for those who want

    They do border all sorts of regions. If any zone was going to be mixed it would be imperial.

    Maybe whenever we get the Nibenay it will be focused on them and actually portay Nibenese as well.
