ESOTU ESO’s Got Personality

Say What?
Overheard in Tamriel

Over the past year, the Elder Scrolls Online has included a few personalities that effect your characters idling fidgets, emotes, walk, and / or all of the above.  For the most part, they have been an interesting addition to the game. However, I think the thief personality could have been quite a bit better given its crown price.

ZOS created a forum to discuss players thoughts on personalities, including what new personalities they would like to see. Some of the suggestions are quite intriguing like the Bard or Jester.

ESOTU OneTamriel Kill Crafting Sets?

Say What?
Overheard in Tamriel

Since the release of OneTamriel, there have been a few posts on the official forums that discuss the competitiveness of the crafted sets versus all of the new zone and monster sets.

In reviewing these discussions, I’m most in agreement with STEVIL.

While developing thru levels, crafted sets now a filler rather than focus in no small part because of the drops being found scaling over and over…So crafted equip is not “done” or “useless” but it is now IMO less often the centerpiece and more often the extra.

ESOTU Crown Store Exclusive Motif Causes Problems

Say What?
Overheard in Tamriel

The first Witches Festival introduced a crown store exclusive motif, The Grim Harlequin, for 2200 crowns and includes 54 crown mimic stones.

The cause of the issue relates to a shift introduced with OneTamriel that focuses crafting to individual characters. For example, harvesting is now determined by the harvester’s adventuring level and crafting passives.  For harvesters-for-profit and mat-provided crafters who wish to continue to do so need f a variety of levels or crafting passives in order to stock up on mats of all tiers.

The issue with the new paradigm is that if you don’t have the exclusive motif, you will have to rely on someone else to use their crown mimic stones to create the item for you or deconstruct a item created with a crown mimic stone  to obtain a sell-able style item used to create it.  Overall, it seems poorly thought-out from an in-game economy perspective.

ESOTU Pattern Emerges in Top Tier Provisioning Writs

Say What?
Overheard in Tamriel

One of our fellow crafters has posted an interesting artical on official forums under the title “One Tamriel Max Provisioning Writs Decoded”

What is happening is that every day the RNG randomly assigns either the CP 50 writ or the CP 150 writ, and once that is decided, you receive whichever writ for that level is due up in the rotation for that day. Also, it seems that the the rotations are linked to each other on a daily basis. I have not been able to discern a pattern outside of this and it does appear whether you get a CP 50 or CP 150 writ is completely random.
