    @Dave‌

    Dont get me wrong but how can you implemented when basically not loyal to 1 guild in ESO when you can be in 5 guild serious please explain how it will work?

    For example if i'm in 4 guild and let guild 1 is lvl 10, guild 2 is lvl 15, guild 3 is lvl 3 and guild 4 is lvl 8 which guild will get those point i gathers to help guilds to get reward for i guess you think of lvl system to for guilds.

    Well off all mmo have play only WoW is one mmo that is rely heavy on tabard and why do we need tabard to represent guild we are in for to me tabard is just way to hide badly made armor and ESO armor is not badly made :) i for one really love look off gear in ESO well in WoW only gear that look go is classic WoW gear :)

    I'm enjoying the game; yes, there are bugs [and rather uneven tech support]. The bugs have, so far, been fixed in a timely manner [yes, we all want the bugs in our quests fixed immediately, but that isn't possible]. I hope the tech support gets sorted sooner rather than later. As far as the game goes though, I wish the "Share quest" option would work so you could share quests with other players you group with. It isn't making joining a group an attractive option if someone who joins you has to go and do all the quests up to the point you're at before you can see them and play with them to the end of the quest.

    Please allow people to search for an item in the guild store by name. Nobody likes scrolling through 20 pages to find a certain "of magika" armor.

    Allow us to sort inventory by rarity, type, level. Also a lot of people wear 2 sets of armor, 1 for dps and 1 for healing for example, it would be nice if you created an inventory reserve slot so when I change gear I don't have to scroll through 60 odd items to find my healing set or my dps set.

    I use mark as junk for that. Its the other way around i suppose, but if you put your offgear in the junk box you can find it easly.

    this is supposed to be a category to leave feedback for the developers? where is that thread then - and why can't I create a new thread? ffs, wtf... - I have a TON of feedback.

    1. bank space - fix it. period
    2. combat - dated for old school forced grouping of 15 years ago - fix it. It's ridiculously difficult. Most of my guildmate report dying is common and often. The combat is shaping up to be the furthest from the ES series and the furthest it can be from fun. Games are supposed to be fun right? not ludicrously twitchy sadistic.

    those are my top two complaints. I know it's new and there's a lot of learning to do, etc but how could ANYONE get these two things SO wrong...



    Hi Scrambled_Brain,

    With the Bank space you are proberply right about, but I love that combat system and as far as I know I'm not the only one. Though, yes may people got problems at the beginning, but you can't say in generall that it is a mistake. In fact, other players and I like it more then the let's say everquest click and wait style.

    Greetings

    Sorry if I post this in the wrong topic, but it would be nice if players receive an ingame message that the server will be offline soon for maintenance. Some games even have a timer on screen so the player is aware how much time they have until the server goes offline. I was busy creating a new character, I was working on it for 40 minutes and then I was signed out because of the maintenance...

    I absolutely agree with Dave. The systems you suggested are fabulous. Mostly, as you said, because they work. It gives identity to the players and to the guild they choose to represent.
    I've found Eso to be lacking many simple and basic features of MMO's. And they're the things you mentioned. BASIC FEATURES!
    I'm quite surprised and disappointed that they're not already implemented.
    I really hope Zeno with their Devs are listening to their player feedback. If so, they can really make this game amazing.
    One thing Dave didn't mention is inventory space for crafting ingredients. Especially for Provisioning. OMG! There are soooooo many ingredients out there and sooooo little space! PLEASE PLEASE! Zeno provide a separate bag or tab for crafting goods. Our bags fill up soooo fast and bank space is limited as well. There's nowhere to store things! It's a huge disadvantage and a huge inconvenience. I'd go even so far as to say it stalls progress in playing. This is a MUST to fix. And before anyone says to just "use" your items or "sell" them, it's not an option when you're constantly using them and saving ingredients for further use once recipes are found. Again, it's a MUST fix.
    Please listen Zeno and implement these changes!

    Combat

    You can block (right mouse button), dodge (double tap a direction), and interrupt (press left mouse button while blocking) enemy abilities no matter what skills and equipment you’re using.

    That is a lie!, because if you bind your block and hit key to some other keys then vanilla you can no longer use (hold block then press hit) to interrupt.

    THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED!

    Hey,
    I have some recommendations for the gameplay:

    1) Because there are big item (and XP) farms in public dungeons and world elite NPCs, it´ d be great if these NPCs (bosses,elites,quest-related NPCs) have scalable HP and attacks. More HP for NPC for more attacking players (HP depends on number of players in combat for each single monster) so it wont be so easy to defeat them. Also maybe a little more spawn time would be great. It works in The Rift MMORPG really great and I believe it´d be really usefull feature for the game. Now, players will just kill one boss during few hours, they´ll get tunes of blue items and from them lots of gold or crafting mats for almost free. It´ll soon *** server economics...

    2) Guild store name search. It´be great if I wouldnt need to browse over whole milion of pages there. Just typing the name and search for specified item.

    3) Crafting materials-there are still lots of "unlimited" deposits. Unlimited means like 4-8 times gatherable deposits during 1 minute. You should check it properly and also add more enchanting runestones to game. There is not many of them (or I´m just unlucky?).

    4) It´d be really great, if there is possibility of craftable and countable arrows for bows. The game will be much more realistic. In all prievous TES game, there had to be modes to add this feature. I though developers will realize it and they´ll add it automatically.

    5) And the last one I wanted to mention: Usage of poison vials from alchemy! Why am I able to create a poison if I´m not able to poison an enemy with it (just myself :( )? It´d be great if it can be used on arrows (bows) and other weapons (probably except staves). Just for a while (like 3 minutes or limited number of hits)...

    Thanks for reading :)

    Humble suggestion: allow players to choose a default language for in-game and forums. Having to read through a menu of unfamiliar prose to find needed info is a PITA.
  • exavius_b16_ESO
    A suggestion for the forum here.

    Write down what you are working for the next patch, so we know if there will be a fix to something we players are waiting on.
  • ouchouch2003_ESO
    Bank space big issue if you have more than one character and are trying to build different skills with each. For each new char you get only 10 new slots. I should be the same for the first and any additional character. EX if first gets 50 slots when you make a second you should get an additional 50.
    A suggestion would be if you do not want to give 50 for each give the first the 50 the second half 25 which would then be 75 and so on for each additional character. The prices for upgrades both for Bank and for Backpack is Ludicrous!!!

    Please keep this in mind since we are already paying for even the bugs when we enter certain areas and the ui fails we fall from the sky and have to repair our gear.
  • ouchouch2003_ESO
    Suggestion for incentives:
    Consider giving members who pay for 3 month subscription plans GOLD and a third level backpack either or would be nice. If you decide to have it to pay a year in advance then a nice thank you would be 1500 in gold.. Food for thought ..just saying :)
  • ConquerorDromtar
    I'd like to see some sort of tiered/ranked permissions for the guild bank. Right now it's all or nothing. It would be nice to give Recruits access to only white items; Members white, green, and blue; etc. Similarly, being able to limit withdrawals to a certain number per day would be nice. As it stands, we risk losing our shirts every time we give bank access to someone new; even with a trial/get to know and trust you period.

    Please unscramble your brain. Combat is so far from "ridiculously difficult" - that statement is almost laughable. God forbid you should actually have to deal with any challenge, or even worse, watch your character die. Omg the horror.

    The search feature for bank/guild bank is a good idea, I like that.

    As for marking items as "junk" for sets of armor, I did that at first too. But then realized everything I marked as junk was moved back into it's "proper" category once I had logged out and come back the next day. Not sure if there's a timer on the junk section or what, but unfortunately the junk area doesn't seem to be a good long-term solution to having your own user-created category. Hey, there's an idea, let a user create their own inventory categories, or a way to flag the items they want to use (like a set of armor), and then filter or sort their inventory by that flag if they want. Just a thought.

    How about putting some GMs in the game.... EVERYONE keeps telling me ALL mmo's have problems during launch. I have been in a few, and while they were problematic, they had GMs in the game to try and help resolve a problem. WHY ARE YOU EXPECTING US TO convince people to leave a bugged instance of a quest? Why would you NOT put a GM in there asking everyone to leave the building or to walk away from a quest because a GM with different color chat will make people listen and can ease the player base. SOE, and Blizzard BOTH HAD GMs available during their initial launch. EDIT Or change our subscription time to actual play time and I will log out for a few months while you fix the game.

    Hello all! I have one suggetion, what about new options for Camera, like Free View Point? for better screenshots positions AND for portraits? i mean now we cant make a screenshot with the hero in the middle, because the axis of the camera always spinning around on the displaced orbit, its better for the game and for the 3rd party look, i know. but would be nice if we will have an option for this, now the hero on the screenshots always on the left side

    how can I restart the game from the beginning. No new game option

    Hi nibor53ub17_ESO,

    I assume thats your first mmo, right. That's not bad everybody starts on something new everyonce in a while. In MMO's you don't have a new game option. You can start a new game. If you create a new character (you've got 8 slots) or if you want to start a complete new game, you need to get rid of all character by just deleting them. Be carefull though, everything will be gone on your characters. So if you want to keep something, you need to create an dummy char and give him that stuff what you want to keep or you bring it to a bank, but I don't know what happened if you delete all of your chars at once. After that you delete the old char and create a new one. Now you transfer, in that game, via bank the items to your new char and delete the dummy again.

    But usually you don't need to delete the chars, I would advice to just bild a new one. If the old one, wasn't fun because you did a mistake with skilling or attributes, you can rest them at the second map at 2 shrines, in Aldmeri-Dominien it would be Grathwood in Elden root. Yes it costs some gold, but is not really much in my opinion.

    I hope that helps, have a great day and happy adventuring

    When the game started, I paid 1000 gold to OPEN a bank account and my mate had no such requirement. That was weird. If what I have read so far is correct, it costs 1000 gold for 10 more bank slots, and 400 gold for a back pack that is sold by a guy at the bank, at least in daggerfall. How many slots in the back packs?

    We really enjoy the crafting of provisions, clothing, smithing and alchemy. Is there a way to sell to other players the things we refine or make other than offering a trade to an individual that I have no way of knowing if they need what I have?

    I've been blown away by the smoothness of launch. Yes there's been bugs and yes it's still not completely stable but compared to other MMO launches it's been magnificent.
    The combat has good balance, the quests are beautifully voice acted and draw you into another awesome sub-story, unlike in previous MMOs where I hated being drawn off to do site quests, in ESO I look forwards to stumbling across that little black quest indicator on my compass!
    I've only just hit level 40 in the Aldmeri Dominion and from what I've experienced the story line has to be one of the most gripping and exciting I've ever experienced in an MMO, yet to see end game content but if the game so far is anything to go by I can't wait to hit those veteran levels.

    One of the major complaints I see is people complaining that this feature, or the combat and art is different from Skyrim and previous TES games. This is not a sequel to TES, it's a TESMMO. They can't have the same graphics, combat or features they've had in the TES games so far because it simply would not work due to technological capabilities at this moment in time.

    All in all I think this game could, and will, flourish compared to WoW, or other previous MMOs and I'll take great pride in saying, five years down the line, that I've stood by The Elder Scrolls Online since launch (Or Beta in many cases)! 10/10

    I have to say this game is a lot of fun and has great potential, especially being an Elder Scrolls Game!

    Please Developers do not let this one slip like all the other games being produced... Keep up the good work and improvements/enhancements!

    So far the game has been a lot of fun but I noticed that there are still a lot of glitches with quest, crafting ingredients, etc. I assume that these are items are ready being worked on?

    Regardless of the little problems I have seen, this is the best MMO I have played. It has been a long, very long, wait for a multiplayer version of the Elder Scrolls and it has finally come. Please make it worth every dime of our hard earned money!
