I finally gave "One Tamriel" a look.

 

It's fine. to the point I'd almost call myself addicted to it. On the other hand, my level 5 character felt about the same as my VR6 character, so it seems like there's no real feeling of progression anymore.

One Tamriel is the best thing that could happen to ESO in my opinion!

I don't really like raiding in any MMO anymore, and don't care for the Primal fights much at all. But Alex 10-12 was fun enough I went back and did A9N again, and plan to repeat them all this coming weekend too...

It's a rare drop from the final boss of the level 55 dungeon "The Aery." But it's rare enough that I've never even seen it drop, and I've run that dungeon many many many times. So to get it randomly from the Palace of the Dead was a very nice surprise.

I have never seen it drop either and I have many jobs to 60 at the moment!

And after a long hiatus... another post. My 1st impressions of the 2 new "expert" dungeons released with today's Patch 3.4 -- tl;dr -- much easier than expected.

Kinda apathetic about mmo's right now, though I'm still logging in every day. Even so the "not really doing anything new or exciting" makes me not really care to post either. But here's an update anyway --

Still focusing on the crafting and gathering to pretty much the exclusion of all else. I'll get to the Palace of the Dead someday..... just not yet. I got 32 levels of Fisher in the past week, though, so the leveling is going quickly.

pkudude99

Between the Ixal and the Moogle quests, one could arguably simply level all the crafting classes to 60 without really needing to gather any materials nor really worry about keeping gear up to date either. It's not as fast as grinding it out, perhaps, but.... it's cheap, and I've spent a lot of money on the crafting stuff already, so, I think I may just have to slow it down a bit.
