*The Festival*

Hello everyone, just an update for ESOFestivals North American Server. First to explain, we had the idea to do a player run festival after Update 3, so that we may show off our guild pride with our new tabards. The festival is a celebration, and a thank you to the developers of Elder Scrolls Online.

 

*Guilds and Events*

So far the guilds on board for helping the festival are

The Order of the Eagle

Blue Skooma

Akear

Old Timers Guild

 

We are looking to get more guilds and overall players involved to help us and join in on the festival. Events currently being discussed include, an auction run by Blue Skooma, a lore story time, and trivia.

 

*Info*

Location; Marbruk, Greenshade

Time: Shortly after update 3 goes live

I decided to translate the Daedric runes on the Dark Anchor Dolmen. "Coldharbour calls, Nirn Obeys"

The dungeons have been surprisingly picturesque. This one looks simply amazing!

Hey, folks, what's the button you use to get rid of all the stuff on the screen but the picture?

In the control panel there is an option to bind a key to hide the UI

Hi Whitestar, for you ESOers out there:

 

From the ZOS forum: forums.elderscrollsonline.com/discussion/comment/1141949/…

We've got an update for you. We're aiming to perform the European megaserver migration from North America to Germany next week (but not Monday). We'll keep you updated!

 

The European megaserver will be down for an extended period of time during the migration, yes. Before the downtime, we'll provide as close to a time estimate as we can. The North American megaserver will not be impacted.

The Alik'r Desert is just stunning, particularly the architecture. I love the Moroccan style towns with their rooves glinting in the sunlight but the ruins and temples, I find, are just breathtaking. Pictured is the Motalion Necropolis.

hmm this outfit is why a) I'm looking forward to the dye system coming in and b) not worried about garish outfits :P

Yes, some of the color palettes are just... bad.

I love the Creating ESO articles. It give a good insight of how the devellopers are thinking, analysing , deciding and making the game.

I'm very enthusiastic at this dye system. I was a bit dubtiful at first, but now I'm totally sold. This will give another dimension to the achievement hunt. I'm also reassured to see the chain of thoughts that lead Zenimax to this decision. Cheers to them.

My guy was in pink robes when they said they were going to make dyes. I was sold right away.

I can't wait for dyes - my sorc is currently in a vomit inducing outfit of purple, gold and blue! What's worse is that it's a set!

Does anyone else have a moral gaming compass? I find when I play single player games I manage to stay quite true to being good/chaotic good but in MMOs I'm much more willing to ignore the moral issue if it means completing a quest / obtaining a reward...

 

Currently wondering whether or not I'll play through the Assassin's guild questline in ESO (when it releases). I know they are usually fun questlines but my character is never normally an out and out murderer so I don't do them... I don't normally do the daedric quests either (unless it is from a neutral / 'good' daedric prince, even then I don't like it)...

I do try to stick to a moral compass when playing ESO. My character is not a murderer or thief so they wont be joining the thieves guild or dark brotherhood. I may make another toon to fit that sort of character.

 

It's funny you mention this because I was playing with my friends, and of course there was this quest (like many games) where you could either kill the innocence.. and get the quest done quick, or go through a process to save them, for the same exact reward. I personally went through the process to save them, my friends all killed them lol.

well am glad it's not just me :) I've always played a thief in Elder Scrolls and the Thieves guild questline in Skyrim has to be one of the best questlines I've ever played through... was an awesome story and really really fun.

erg pressed return too early :P I think I've done the quest you mention @Illusive-Lucy and I also chose to help the npc :) There are some really nicely written quests which don't boil down to bla bla bla kill kill kill and I always find it really gratifying when a quest turns out better than expected. Although there is a daggerfall covenant quest (involving werewolves and a father) where I really wish I'd chosen differently... It is hard questing with friends / other people because you never go at the same speed! It's worse in the public dungeons where I just end up spam clicking through the dialogue so I don't get left behind!
