    ZOS... uhm, I have something to tell you, and... and don't hate me for this...

    Seeing those facial expressions and character movements on the NPCs made me weep because they're so ****ING GOOD! Please, please, PLEASE tell me we're getting improved NPC animations with Orsinium because those looked RIDICULOUSLY good.

    It almost made me think of Bioware-level character movements from discussions, and I got chills. XD

    this looks pretty awesome.
    best in slot: is the armor, weapon, clothing look, pet, or no pet, jewelry, race, class, skill choices, amount of DPS, and skin color best fit to you and the way you wish to play and makes you feel good and performs what YOU think it should be.

    worst in slot: what you read in zone chat, and forum comment, and forum thread, and you tube video, and live streamer advice, and class rep advice, and guild chat advice, and whisper told you to wear, and use for skill, and dress like, and use for weapon and armor.

    Anyone have a link to where this is on the ESOTU map of Tamriel?

    My wall printout of the standard ESO map doesn't have enough detail to show where that mountain range is.

    I think 600 would have to be the bare minimum, as everyone who was VR14 when the CP system was announced and has worked as a regular player would be above 300+. The system should limit those who who grinded/exploited to get an advantage, not those who earned them through average play. I'm at 380ish CP. I get 1-2 points a day when I play, even if just from the Enlightenment system. Limiting it at 300 would hurt a lot of people who play regularly -vs- those who have, say, 1-2K CPs.

    A "catch up" system should allow players to learn 2-3X XP towards CP until they hit a certain point (I'd say 300 is a good average point for CP). Given CP very quickly hits a point of diminishing returns...

    I will thank the gods when I can use my xbox one controller on my pc for ESO! I play better no matter what game with a gamepad rather than a mouse/keyboard setup. The gamepads just feel more natural and I never loose finger position unlike on a keyboard.

    Plus it will be easier to play ESO on the treadmill with a controller. :)

    And the Shield dying and fixed LFG tool is awesome also!
    As a casual player I was satisfied that at one point I had a char max level and near max crafting with almost all motifs and I pretty much lost interest. Then ESO discovered DLC's and now my main is just a wanabe and I am happily pulled back into the game.

    I'm hoping. If they really buff the subscription benefits with things like the crafting bags it'll be a huge incentive for people to sub.

    Well now. Much as ZOS seem to have been trying to drive me away recently I have to admit that Orsinium looks absolutely superb. I am actually excited about this... and generally I hate the orcs. So that is saying something!

    Based on this first glance of the DLC... nice work, ZOS, nice work indeed.

    Now if you would be so good as to stop devaluing crafters we might start seeing eye-to-eye again!

    Will we have to play ridiculous amounts and grind for 40 hours to just craft one item again? If so I am a little annoyed as I did this in Imperial City not expecting a new patch to be released right away with more contennt.

    I hope it is something really good that you can ONLY get with AP. Then PVP should pick up more. I am just so happy it will be on PTS today so I can find out :)
