Official Discussion Thread for "Ask Us Anything: Craglorn"

  • filimon.andreieb17_ESO
    Since you're making delves in Craglorn instanced to your group, could we have them instanced to your group everywhere in the world as well?

    Looks good, however, my concern is that grouping will force me to skip all the dialogs and books and other stuff like it happens in group dungeons atm. I'm one of those people who leaves no stone unturned and thats impossible in a group of 4...not to mention group of 12 people. So i support idea to scale amout of enemies depending on how large your group is or maybe a single/dual player instances with less rewards or something. I don't mind rushing through content for rewards but i'd really like to explore areas on my own first.

    And what about the size of this new area? I'm really looking for more holds and new provinces areas for soloing but it seems we'll have to wait. So, about this pve zone, the size is about one area from your alliance more or less?

    So are we to assume that we must group in order to level to veteran rank 11 and 12 in this adventure zone or will there be ways of solo questing like there is now to level until we are ready for craglorn and the trials?

    I had the impression that these adventure zones will be instanced to each party.It saddens me to see this is not the case.

    TBH, I'm still extremely low leveled and very frustrated with it. I have so many character ideas I want to try out and can't decide which one to "main", not to mention the fact that I also have duo alts with my friends. Eight character slots aren't enough, especially when there are so many options in this game. So the fact that new endgame content is already coming out really off-puts me when I have several toons all the same low level range from experimenting too much.

    As I understand the zone itself is public like other zones, the instanced dungeons and the trial is not.

    Like how you complain that you have to group and the next complains that the entire zone is not instanced :)
    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    1)Will you have authenticators available at any time in the future? With the amount of hackers/gold sellers, I'd feel safer paying for one.

    2) Will you make improvements to the tradeskill window, letting us know what item can be used to research/that we do not know and items that we already know. There is an addon for this but I always prefer in-game.

    3) Will you add a list of discovered recipes for alchemy? Writing them down on paper or getting an addon are the only solutions at the moment.

    4) Have you considered giving some players ''guide'' status and giving them the power to ban gold spammers on the spot? All that you have to do in exhange is give them a free monthly fee. 5-10 per server will help you get rid of A LOT of spammers. Make it known to the ''guides'' that if they ban any other accounts for any other reason, they will be permanently banned. This has been done successfully in other MMO's.

    5) Will you add to the achievements to let us know all the quests in a zone so we can see which are missing. For example, I can have done 68 out of 69 and missing one and not have a clue where it is. It can get frustrating looking everywhere for that one missing quest.

    6) Can you look at the mana cost of cleric heals. Personally, I think it's a bit high when you have not so bad gear, a lot of points in heals, a pretty good resto heal and you have a hard time healing an entire event in a dungeon even after using potions and the food for mana.

    You guys crack me up. Know what you don't see here? 50,000 people screaming about lack of endgame content.

    Know what you would see here if this zone didn't launch? 50,000 people screaming about lack of endgame content.

    A ton of people are already lvl 50 and eager to get started with this zone. Endgame content is essential to the success of this game. Suggesting that zos postpones the launch of Graglorn in order to put every single member of their staff on existing bugs is just unreasonable. Do you guys honestly believe that zos isn't trying as hard as they can to fix bugs? Do you really think they don't understand how important it is?

    I just hope they have some other form of garnishing feedback besides this forum. Because for every 1 person that comes here complaining, there are 100 people that love the game and are enjoying it without threatening to leave every second.

    I for one am happy to see many things on this list. Graglorn looks like it is going to be a massive amount of fun.

  • Necrashrwb17_ESO
    ill ask you why i am still blocked in coldharbour for 7 days now. I have had 1 phone call yesterday from tech support. He upgraded the issue and told me a game dev will call me in 24-72 hours. This is pathetic as it could be up to 9 days since the initial problem was ticketed. Fix your *** or refund me now!!!!

    Kid take a vacation in Cyrodiil... go for a picnic day at the slaughter fish infested river. Or Make a climb on the frozen slopes all this while fighting your way past endless encounters that are not only "spawn bug free" trust me ill even show up. But will chanllenge ur game play light years ahead of any PVE BOSS. Beyon that all I can say is *** away even if they fix everything u ask for today on a post... you will find 100 new things to *** about tomorrow!!!
  • Necrashrwb17_ESO
    I really dont understand why all this rageing newbs. Do you not know that the people make the new content are not the ones fixing bugs. thats 2 diferent departments. Not only that I wouldnt want the developer that *** it up in the first place trying to fix it he would *** up some else. Try to see past ur *** rage and just play the game noobs.

    +1
    Though I am looking forward to when they come out with longer real raid content. Something with scores of bosses that we can work on through the course of a week.

    Is there some crumb to throw to us PVE-ers? Like, any hint that future add-ons won't require that we gang up with strangers just to beat up some OP mobs?
    Or will all new content tend to be group-based, because Bartle writes that forcing us to socialize is what makes us players "sticky"?
    To me, *letting* me socialize is great. *Forcing* socialization just to complete content, turns me right off.

    Then go play Skyrim... This is an MMO, and grouping and commuity is a huuuuuge part of the game, especially in this one. ffs there are plenty of single player rpgs available.

    Stop trying to spoil group content for people who actually like to play MMO's.

    PLEASE TELL ME YOU GUYS ARE GOING TO BE ADDING ON "Vvardenfell" ANY TIME SOON!? Cause I would like to take part on helping The Three from stopping the carnation of Dagoth Ur and help out with the construction of Ghost Gate surrounding Red Mountain.. Please notify me if this going to happen soon? :D
  • dg_rakhub17_ESO
    if this games becomes open world pvp then I will quit, and I know a lot of others will as well. because it would be too much like WoW and I hate that game because it was built on that reason, to the people working on fixing the game, keep it like it is, it is a TES game and that is what the people who don't have time or energy to post on here would have to say!

    if you are not a fan then how are you able to get pulled into the game or the lore? (watch their is going to be several quotes from people who have already posted on here who are not TES fans.)

    As I said here in beta times...The game will be successful if ZoS please TES fans. Other mmorpgs fans that are not into TES mechanics/universe will come, will blame and will be out.

    The game is amazing and I just want more and more zones to explore. This is TES universe, not another wow or other mmorpg clone.
    Then you have this madness coming from some supposed hardcore mmorpg fans wanting "their game" and smashing their heads against the keyboard whatever ZoS do.

    But ZoS knows whats better and who they have to hear, that's what they are doing since the beginning and that's why the game is awesome and will be better.

    Anyway, the game is doing really really well and the vast majority of people is enjoying the game and being surprised of how good this game is. But that people is just playing and enjoying, not flaming in forums.

    So tired of people making comments like "fix the bugs before you make new content." If you don't understand how development works please don't offer your suggestions. You see, in 2014 game makers like all big companies have these things internally that are called "Departments." The idea behind a department is that people work as a group towards the goals in which their area of expertise specializes in. You would never ask a baker to do a heart transplant so why do you expect writers and those who create content to find bugs in the programming code? If they all were working on programming, being that they don't ALL program, that would be a huge waste of resources and change absolutely nothing.

    What we have is a broken game. I don't say bugged, because you can deal with bugs.but to many people are stuck in broken content.
    As far as the new content, The development team is probably not the ones fixing bugs but they should be, until the game is fixed it should be all hands on. If the new content is as broken as the old content people probably will be losing jobs. because this game is going to Die.

    I really hate the fact that the only way to be able to play this new adventure zone you have to have a group. Thats bs, I payed 80 dollars for the game and then I will pay 15 dollars a month for content that I cant even play. I am 32 years old and dont usually play co op so I guess my experiance would be dependent on me finding a group. Its really not a great way to treat players. I dont like it and if you guys keep doing stuff like that, I am afraid this will not be played much after 6 months
  • LimeCupcake
    The new zone looks like a lot of fun. However, it seems like I won't able to do any of the content on my own? I'm not opposed to grouping with people but some times being in groups means I don't get to explore and rummage around in crates and barrels because the group is in a hurry. Is there anything you are doing to encourage groups to slow down and not just speed from mob to mob in an attempt to get on the leader boards?

    Will it come with improvements to the guild store system?
    Will it give us the ability to open multiple windows at the same time? IE: Inventory and crafting.
    Will it provide comparison tool tips for crafting/what we're wearing?
    Will it allow us to preview how an item looks before crafting?
    Perhaps it could allow us to leave the same weapon in both slots for weapon swap, giving us the benefit of both action bars while specializing in a single weapon type.
    Will it let us look at our crafting windows without being at a crafting station?

    If so, Craglorn is starting to look nice!

    Keep in mind, I love the game. It just needs a few things.
    Keep up the good work.

    (A timeline for intentions and improvements in the pipeline would be nice too!)

    This all sounds really nice and I'm looking forward to Craglorn in what 3 weeks? But what I really want to know about right now is the Dark Brotherhood, Thieves Guild, Justice system, and any other cool features being added. At this point we know nothing about anything but Craglorn its time to start the hype and the anticipation by giving us all the juicy details. I've not been terrible impressed with how ZOS has released information about the game and hope that changes. In any case I'm excited for the upcoming content patch.

    You may feel that way, but you are in a very small minority here. Too much group endgame content will not cause this game to die. In fact it's quite the opposite. If this did not have enough group content at endgame, then it most certainly would die. And faster than 6 months. I respect your opinion, but 97% of the MMO community expects, no, DEMANDS group content to keep them busy after hitting max level. As it stands right now, EVERYTHING available at lvl 50+ is designed for solo play aside from a couple dungeons. Group content is absolutely essential, and it needs to be progressive.
