Before and during the maintenance

@ZOS_Kevin and other ZOS folks - would you consider adding some short, one sentence message to the loading screen set of messages? Examples:

1) "On the day of maintenace, think what you can do - socialise, spend time with family, read books, complete your work. When you finish, Tamriel will await you!"

2) "Odaviing, a dragon from the future will once say: "It is wise to recognize when you only have one choice. Choose and plan how to spend your time during maintenance. And then - return to Tamriel."

3) "Give us a break, we need to recuperate after all the evil you've done to us.
with regard,
--villains of Tamriel"

4) "Even a warrior's sword needs a break, or else it will break. When maintenance is on, see what elese is there to be mended."

5) "Even a ranger's bow needs to be put away, and stop being tensed for a moment. When maintenance is on, see what elese is there that requires precises shots."

6) "Even a mage's spells may fail if the mage is not well rested. When maintenance is on, see what elese is there that may fail - so that you don't fail."

Let those messages sink in, let them be inculcated. This may be more important to people who got slightly addicted to ESO. And you, ZOS folks, need to do your own job, so maybe this will help you as well as the playerbase.

"What say you?"
--Hermie to Dovahkiin in Septimus Signus' Outpost
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 --> https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/594079/idea-craft-cp-sub-tree-ideas-constant-wip#latest

III.Replayable content in overland
>>dynamic 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?

>>Norg-Tzel - for Mara's sake, ZOS, REMOVE it from the list please!

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.

>>highlighting WBs that are being fought

>>possibility to dye barding

>>possibility to switch UI between guild bank<-->bank<-->guild trader

>>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

    In general, this might be something useful to calm people down a bit.

    I think a humourous or lore/rp approach would be the most reasonable one, though. So less of this (sorry, but platitudes are always... meh; I'm an adult person, I know very well what to do with my freetime and that I have rl commitments):

    The maintenance time announcements could be supplied by M'aiq, because that one is a source of great (and witty) wisdom.
