Elder Scrolls Online - News Round-Up #4

by Couchpotato, 2013-08-17 01:32:33

MMORPG has a new editorial that focuses entirely on the racial and guild skills of the game.

Each class also has three distinct skill lines, and these tend to be more robust than the race specific skills. The Templar Nick Konkle was playing had Aedric Spear, Dawn’s Wrath, and Restoring Light. I assume that each of these refers to the different roles the class can tackle, with Restoring Light sounding distinctly “healy”. Paul and Nick also showed how each skill can be leveled up through use and “morphed” down one path or another to change how that skill works. Way back when, Paul talked to us during a press event and said that down the road, if you want to go back and level up a skill down another morph path, you can do that as well. You can only have one version of the skill active at any time, but they won’t limit your choice and progress just because you might hit the level cap before exploring your character’s full potential.

Next Camelot Post has a new article about the pros and cons of voiced MMOs that includes The Elder Scrolls Online.

Zenimax Online confirmed the use of full voice support for its NPC’s in Elder Scrolls Online earlier this year, but is that always a good thing? Blaine Smith of Camelot Post takes an in-depth look at the pros and cons of voiced characters in MMO gaming.

Moving on ZeniMax Online gives us more details on the Fungal Grotto.

Our team battled their way through the Fungal Grotto dungeon during the live gameplay stream at QuakeCon, and now its verdant tunnels can decorate your desktop. Please enjoy our new wallpaper, featuring concept art from the dungeon.

If you didn’t catch the gameplay stream, you can watch our team take on the grotto in the full replay. Enjoy!

And for last ZeniMax Online has the next developer question of the week
