@Vladdra I totally understand where you are comming from...
I spent the first 2 days of my veteran rank progress totally frustrated by this. My character had progressed just fine up to VR1, then suddenly you are FORCED to respecc and use all those skills and a build that you never wanted too.
My progress to VR10 will only ever work if as a Templar if I use Aedric spear spam. I was never interested in that skill lvl 1 to 49 so why am i forced to use it now??
The game went from having lots of interesting builds and skill lines, to literally just one skill spammed over and over again, I am now VR4 and im starting to feel like a bot...
Not only this, but I have been told by many different people that Templar is beyond useless, especially for heals, and that i should have rolled a sorceror healer all along. With the current veteran rank progression there is NO WAY I could ever consider rerolling or making an alt.
So im left with 1 skill spam until i reach VR10, or basically unsub and move on...
This thread is the absolute perfect example of how NO game will ever please everyone. First everyone complained they wanted to be able to go to other factions zone, they complied. Then people complain 1-50 is way to easy, they complied. People zoom through content and complain about not enough endgame, they complied.
I hit VR1 and have gotten almost to VR5 in Cyrodiil just enjoying myself.
VR is the best idea ever. I get to explore the entire game on one character and I get to fight against challenging opponents instead of two shotting meaningless mobs over and over. You actually need a coherent build not just dump your favorite dps skills on your bar. It feels like end game because I can spend thousands on good gear and it is worth it because it will last me for awhile till I get to the next "tier". But also you are still progressing slowly when you rank up by increasing your soft caps and having access to better gear, similar to a normal gear centric endgame.
A lot of people don't like quest/xp endgame progression it seems, they want to be able to farm a boss and move to the next tier and farm another boss etc. I am not a raider, I like doing raids and dungeons once to see the scenery and doing lots of pvp. When there is no more solo progression and pvp gets old the game is over for me and I move on.
It feels like I am getting two entire expansions worth of content right at the beginning of the game. This is like WoW+BC+Wrath amounts of single player content to start with and Cata is coming out next month! Never have I played an mmo at launch with this amount of content available to a single character. Yes, it is content. If you feel you have to aoe grind for days to reach the absolute xp cap as fast as possible that's your own problem.
The game changes and get deeper imo at this point... and sure the casual player will probably lose out. But oh well
I agree, why only a costume? Not a true armor set matching your class? Also a free respec would be nice.
Also I nvr understand why so many personal instances but the rewards don't even come close to what you need? Should there be a way to fix this?
Never heard about a game called dark soul or demon soul...It was such à
I have to say grinding vet ranks is tedious and knowing that many of the vr10 people running around exploited it makes it a slap to the face of us that are actually grinding the zones. The loot/rewards are pitiful, ZOS was very lazy with endgame and they will have to step up to the plate big time within the next few months to keep people subscribing. It's a hard truth...
