    HYPE!

    Edit: since this is a discussion thread! I'm really glad to see we're getting more world bosses, the new ones are a lot of fun. I imagine they'll be even more fun when the population spreads out a bit. It's casual group content that has me run around in Wrothgar after 'having done it all'.

    I'm also super excited about the 'new criminal activities'! And passive skill line? Didn't see that coming! What passive stuff could you possibly have in store that isn't already in Legerdemain? Super pumped.

    "Prioritization of animations during combat." Is this going to be an answer to remove weaving from game?

    This kind of bothers me a little. If it screws up my ransack animation cancelling I'm going back to wrecking blow, and I don't want to

    @ZOS_GinaBruno Will this increase performance demand on the hardware? Will we need to upgrade our PCs?

    Scrolling combat text (SCT)
    Will it include a DPS meter and buff tracker and improved character sheet information?

    Access to content from other alliances in any order you choose upon reaching Veteran Rank 1
    Thank you so much for this! A welcome addition for roleplayers and altaholics. Will it scale like Orsinium?

    Prioritization of animations during combat
    Does it mean animation cancelling will be gone?

    First people cry about NB's doing massive damage from stealth, which is mostly due to animation cancelling, and then they don't want a nerf for their animation cancelling.

    I am glad removing weaving from game. Stupid unintended mechanism. Nobody should be able to cancel an animation for an attack. Might aswell remove all animations and make damage instant.

    Anyway, this DLC looks great. I can hear the crying about NB's can thieveguild better because they can cloak. I really look forward to the thieves guild. I do hope members of a thievesguild will be in negative with fightersguild and mageguild (ie more build diversity by choosing a guild skill line)

    And if cyrodill also participates in thieving activities it would be awesome. So far justice is not server there (and plz tell us how the lag is after this update)

    Looking forward to it and probably throwing money at it.

The College of Illusion hides me and fuddles or pacifies my opponents. The College of Mysticism detects my object, reflects and dispels enemy spells, and makes good my escape. The key to a nightblade's success is avoidance, by spell or by stealth; with these skills, all things are possible."

    I at least hope these guys are tougher to get around than the average city guard and actually have some tricks up their sleeve other than being invincible and having endless cc!

    Looks really good, and those armors in the picture there, I really hope those are not only costumes, but motifs to craft armor style. Camel, for those that like that kinda thing. New skill line (passives)...that sounds interresting.

    Players without DLC will not gain access to that skill line? Will these 'exclusive' passive skills break balance? Or it is free DLC available for everyone?

    Will we able to access all the zones after the mainquest? Or do we still need to finish silver (now with ourselves choosing the order) to get access to the gold zones?

    We're not removing weaving, but improving the animations and responsiveness during combat so you can clearly see an ability's impact. We'll be getting into the details of this in the coming weeks!

    It kinda sounds like you're nerfing animation cancelling considering that is the practice of.. cancelling animations. I'm sweating right now @ZOS_GinaBruno
