Hi. My ESO Plus subscription is due in June and I honestly don’t know if I want to renew it, although I know I will get the Blackwood DLC so a bit more to do there. I love the lore and I love doing the quests, what I don’t like is being forced down an avenue that I don’t like. I get that ESO is a multiplayer game and designed for groups and guilds etc. but it’s annoying as a PvE player when I’m being ‘forced’ to play PvP in Cyrodiil because that is the ONLY way to get Transmute Crystals.
I started doing the Grey Host Campaign in Cyrodiil recently and I’m getting very frustrated with that. I can make my way around Cyrodiil, complete the Quests and Delves and get the Skyshards (apart from the 4 that are locked to Alliance keeps) but every now and again I get caught up in an alliance fight. When this happens, invariably someone will come up to me and before I can even put up a shield – they hit me for something like 24k damage and that’s it – game over.
In response, even if I do manage to get a shot off – it’s about 2 -3k damage at most, so my question is – what am I missing? How are they able to hit for 24k and I can only hit for about 2 – 3k? All my gear is legendary (apart from rings) and they are all part of sets (Mother’s Sorrow / Necromancer / Crafty Alfiq’s). I have googled my build and set it up as close as possible to one of the recommended builds here (https://alcasthq.com/eso-solo-magicka-sorcerer-build-pve/)
. I have assigned my CP in the way advised, and I have worked on my ‘rotation’ so that I have a mix of shields, AoE and DPS attacks in my bar. I use Potions and food buffs as suggested but I still get slammed.
I wanted to get some Transmute Crystals so I could make better ‘Sets’ but if the only way I can do that is to carry on in Cyrodiil then I’m not really sure if I want to, or if I’m willing to pay the subscription.
I’d welcome any thoughts on this.
