Couldn’t really get into ESO when it launched (wasn’t helped by the amount of players messing around at the time) but hoping this will be the shot in the arm it needs for me to enjoy it. Loved Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim and they’ve supposedly made a lot of tweaks to let you solo this so I’ve got my fingers crossed!

Pretty much all of the game is playable solo (it is how I generally play) with the exception of World Bosses and dungeons which are designed for group play, that skull icon actually means something now 🙂 Any level can group with any other level and be effective, it’s pretty cool how they’ve done it so if you jump back in, give me a shout. On the ‘solo’ front though, there are a LOT of people in Morrowind at the moment. today I went into one place and couldn’t even SEE the quest target for bodies. It is a very different game to the one that launched. On another note, there are still bugs (lol it is like any Bethesda in that respect).

Thanks – I dived in on launch night and liked what I saw but as you say it was chock full of people which did kind of ruin any sort of immersion. I did one of the earlier missions where you have to go to the docks and a level 600 guy just zoomed past me and pretty much one shotted all the enemy NPC’s which annoyed me too. Hopefully things will calm down soon as the influx of new players dies down.

Controls are a little tricky at first with most buttons having multiple functions and my inventory filled up really fast which was frustrating but I’m going to persevere. Do you have ESO plus?

I buy a month’s worth once in a while (when I want to buy something) as it’s pretty much the same in crowns as you get back.
As to inventory – you can buy bag upgrades for in game bucks but there’s a trick to it.
1. Create 8 toons and park the other 7 in the banks. Use them to store materials etc.
2. Once they fill up, buy 1 month’s eso plus then all your mats get moved into crafting bank.
3. You could (who am I to suggest this??) create 9 more xbox live accounts on your boner.
4. Start your own guild then add all 9 to it. Bingo another (free) 500 storage slots or 1000 if you are in eso plus.

If you need anything, please ask.
I can craft anything in any normal racial style (gear sets make the game MUCH easier).
I can make any glyph
I can craft any regular potion
I will try to send you some LVL 15/20/30/40 pots (just let me know if your toon is magic or stamina based (I guess stam as it’s a redguard.

Thanks – that was really helpful and also for the offer of some potions, really appreciated. I’m still getting to grips with it and the systems – doesn’t work quite the same as Skyrim. I got an NPC to start teaching me smithing skills but it seems you can’t learn another skill at the same time? Half the stuff I collect is worthless but I don’t know it until I go back to a storekeeper to sell it so really struggling for money. Is there anything that is particularly good for me to do as a new player to get a decent amount of cash together? I can’t even afford to do the horse training and apparently you need to be doing that once every day?

Also is there a way to get rid of that annoying chat window for good? All that ever appears on it is people trying to sell stuff and it’s an ugly distraction from what’s going on.

Deffo got a lot to learn – going to try and find a decent beginners guide – don’t even know what a Delve is (suspect it might be a dungeon?) – I found one last night when I was following a side-quest where you need to poison a crop – it was late so I never went any further, so that’s my first bit of research to do!

The whole stamina/magicka player thing perplexes me too… some say you need to be one or the other while others say that you can just have a bit of both and that it only really matters for the ‘end game’. I was just going to play it like Skyrim and invest in the powers (whatever they may be) that I find suit the way I like to play (which is usually up close and personal with occasional ranged attacks for tougher enemies. Again some research obviously needed there!

I sent you some food ingame today. Probs no good to you yet but soon.
You can learn all crafting skills simultaneously (just complete the quest and he/she will teach you another) but it’s really slow.

To make (some) money, go to the starting area for your character and go pick up the crafting quests from the boards. Stick to TWO as it takes ages to find resources generally food/drink is easy as you find the mats in delves and can buy the recipes or smithing/woodworking/clothing then DONT LEVEL THEM UP as its a waste of points early on. Completing them nets you a little cash. horse upgrades once per day, go for speed then inv then stamina. Takes SIX MONTHS!

Sell EVERYTHING apart from materials that you are not using immediately as you will outgrow it quickly.

As to the skills – you want stamina first and foremost and put all your points into it. If your health is too low, put health enchants on your gear. aim for 20K health and as much stamina as you can get (with food). The food I sent will help once you hit lvl 15. don’t shotgun your skills,
Start with a bow and cliff racer skill.
At lvl 15 take a two hander. A lot of the guides say dual wield – yes once you know how to play otherwise you will just die. The two hander skills just wreck stuff once you get the hang of charge/uppercut. Put one of each of the class skills on your bar, EVEN if you’re not using them – you need to level them. Get the betty netch as soon as you can then morph to bull. Also the first two skills from your top class set. Once it levelsto 12 you can take a bear ultimate which stays up unless it dies – really useful early on, not so much later. A lot of the skills start using magic and later have stamina morphs.
Short answer – no stamina – you’re dead. If you see me online, send me a message and I will come find you for a chat. I will send you 10k later as well which is enough to upgrade your horse a few times and buy the initial recipes (3 drink & food). Then you can craft.

Thanks for all the advice and for the nice surprise in my inbox – that was amazing! Didn’t get much of a chance to play over the weekend and last night I was watching E3 but will hopefully get time to put some hours in this week. I’ve printed off your tips to help guide me 🙂

I’ll send you stuff that I think is useful regularly (I don’t need any of it).

Keep me updated if you can as to your level.

When you get mail, look at the contents, if you can’t use it immediately, just leave it in your inbox as it will stay there for 30 days.

As early as you can, go to Auridon : Vuikel Guard.
Go past the Mages Guild, theres a gate. go out of it and turn right. Just a bit up from there you’ll find a dolmen (kind of looks like a gear on your map).
If there are a lot of people there the dolmen will open quite frequently.
finishing it nets you soul gems and jewellery as well as random crud so you can farm a necklace and two rings as part of a set (the set drop is random to that area).

There are 3 dolmens per area.

OK this threw me a bit but worked out why now. I’ve decided to start my ESO adventure by playing Morrowind so I’m based in Vvardenfell following the story and side-quests there. Eventually found Auridon on an online map and it’s literally the other side of the world – that’s going to be one hell of a trek 🙂

By the end of my session last night I’d just hit level 7.

No trek, just go to a wayshrine, click on the map and expand Auridon, click on the V.Guard wayshrine and you are there. I will be on later tonight. I’m in Auridon. I will send you. A guild invite. Accept it. Then go to Social-Guilds-roster , find me, then travel to player.
Guild chat is always better than anything else apart from if I’m in the lounge, I will be using Kinectchat

Hi, thanks for the offer but I’ve only managed to play once since you posted this (last night) – think I’m more comfortable just pottering around at my own pace at the moment learning the ropes and occasionally cocking things up. Got my smithing, woodworking and clothier certifications last night and am eligible to do some of the writs on the board now. Starting to find my way around better and remembering where things are (stables, notice board crafting stations etc). Wish they’d had games like this back in my student days when I had all the time in the world to play them… mind you I’d have probably failed everything because of the distraction!

Like I said before, it’s how I play most of the game with the exception of World Bosses and Group dungeons. There ARE players out there who can solo group content, I’m not one of them. I sent you a guild invite for one reason only, it saves me sending you stuff you don’t want/need. In the guildbank i’ve deposited Armor/Weapons/Jewellery for the first 50 levels or so (it’s stuff I don’t need). The other stuff in there I do need. If you don’t take it up, I will just take it out and sell. You probably want to join a trading guild at some point (one of the bigger ones) as it’s the only place you can sell stuff you don’t want for a reasonable amount. Guild stores are also good places to buy stuff you want and can’t find/make. (like high end jewellery and weapons – especially if you aren’t running group content). There are crafting locations in the wilds also where you create sets but unless you’ve been studiously researching everything, you won’t be able to use them. As you change zones, the number of research slots increases and the time to research each item doubles so by the time you come to do the last trait it takes TWO MONTHS per piece unless youve put some points in to decrease it to 30 days. Eventually you will be able to research 3 items per type simultaneously but that still means over two months for the last trait for each armor/weapon type. Creating armor sets is important but you will soon outlevel your ability to do it unless you are putting the points into it instead of where they need to be. A lot of players create a crafting only toon (I’ve got one), that toon is useless at anything else because all the points are invested in crafting skills. what people do is level it up, then respec as a crafter then start a new playing toon – Massive timesink. The alternative is to join a guild, play with others then get them to craft for you for a nominal fee.
There are two choices, put a lot of time in or get sociable. I chose the first route (I’ve got the time). If you get stuck and DO want a particular set of crafted gear, send me a mail and I will make it 4 you. Leave it till later though as you will outlevel crafted gear quite quickly (When levelling I change armor every 5 levels which means a daily recraft. That’s until you hit level 50, then everything changes and get’s quite complex as you don’t ‘level’ any more you gain ‘champion points’ which are kind of ‘tweak points’ and currently max out at 630 (That’s the number you’ve been seeing on players). Armor though maxes out at CP120 and levels every 10cp so 10/20/30 etc.

All of the above might let you realise that it’s a complex game!
