"All About Mechanics" - Dungeon/Trial/Arena Guide Series!

There are so many dungeons in this game and so much information to absorb, and not everyone gets the chance to understand how things work before getting defeated OR getting kicked from dungeon finder. Of course there are many dungeon guides out there and I'm sure there will be more from others in the future but this is kinda my own swing on things, breaking information down in my own way.

This new series on my Youtube channel called "All About Mechanics" is aimed at helping everyone, old or new with mechanics of dungeons and the boss encounters, explaining everything you need to know in order to survive, perform and achieve the completion for each!

All of the dungeons are completed on veteran difficulty with a hard mode completion at the end showing the full mechanics along with useful tips to further enhance your completion once you get used to the fights. The group setup used is also deliberately balanced with a composition of 1x tank (warden), 1x healer(dk) 1x stamina dps (dk) 1x magicka dps (sorc). Of course i can hear people screaming "you don't need a healer just go 3x deeps and a tank"...this is about teaching mechanics, not about showing off with over the top damage burning/skipping mechanics since you have done it a million times before, #RememberWhereYouStarted everyone has their own level of experience and this is about helping people, not a competition of who has the longest /cough. You will see that with this basic setup, all mechanics are VERY manageable and controlled.

The beginning of the series is of course starting with Banished Cells I, and i shall be going through all of the first tier dungeons, then tier two and so on. Once they are completed i shall be going through version II of each dungeon in the same order as before until finally hitting the DLC dungeons. So this is not just a helpful series of guides but it also is set in order of Difficulty, structure towards demonstrating easiest to hardest content for the most part. This way players can really get their teeth into their dungeon diving experiences from start to finish.

I will be posting as many dungeons per week as possible along with the usual live streams and build videos/updates so keep your eyes peeled for more updates.

I shall post the updates in here per video as well as of course add each new one to the "All About Mechanics" playlist on my channel.

I hope this content helps you all and that you enjoy the content.

The first dungeon guide is Banished Cells I, enjoy!

    This is great, especially for new players and those veterans who can have spots where they struggle.
    I've looked for videos of this nature....one's where dungeon mechanics are explained. Sadly, not alot out there. PLENTY showing off, but almost zero explaining how it was actually done.
    This series is a great service to the community.

    Thank you! Plenty more to come in the near future, gotta get them ALL done:)

    Very nice :) especially the focus on details and clarity. I now know that then last boss in BC1 drop the fire circles on ground you shield up or block as one shot is incoming, knew about raising sword but that can be a bit hard to see.

    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    Definitely have to recommend this series, this dudes attention to detail, no fuss and making the content accessible to newer less experienced players is a refreshing change. Keep up the good work Xynode

    Just nice, note that it might be better to start with the harder one for more views , vBC1 is kind of infamous for the one shot who don't belong in an 1 dungeon who is supposed to be just an step up from normal dlc.
    Still the attention to detail is awesome, I say its an magnitude deeper than other guides, easy non death run for weak groups.

    Stopping by to subscribe.

    Finally someone who actually explains and shows mechanics, not just "this is how you burn it down quickly" I'll share all of these videos on my guilds discord server. Perfect for the new players that want to do dungeons, but just get the "go youtube it" if they ask for help.

    Thank you very much.

    There is only one series by one guy who explained how to beat veteran dungeons and I like it a lot except video quality is a bit poor but he explained very well.

    I like you both and keep going, watching your videos, too as you can always learn something new.
    I don't play ESO since 15.06. because Cyrodiil is broken since Summerset (PvE isn't much better, too)...

    The cowardly Wood Elves are best noted for their unwillingness to engage in a face-to-face attack; a Bosmer will strike at you from every side except the front. You won't cross swords with a Bosmer, but you might catch an arrow in the throat. Be wary in forests and jungles, and watch your back.
