i reached about level 15 in the PC version and it was mostly standard MMO fare, as far as what you are doing goes. the big difference with ESO is the context given to the task at hand. voice acting and writing are strong, but at the end of the day, you're just helping a person deal with some monsters.

they took a lot of the recent quest designs that WoW has, such as getting a mob to a certain % health then hitting a button to "absorb it" or whatever the quest context might be. there's also some phase shifting in that a quest can "send you back to the past" where a particular area has different aesthetics and monsters around until you finish the quest and exit the instance.

I'm stupid, should have checked more closely. I'll check it out now. Also, glad to hear it's running well! Now I'm really excited. :D

I tried out all 3 factions in the PC version. I liked DC the most, though AD was a close second.

The run the gambit from mind-numbingly boring fetch quests to layered storylines with interesting people and dialogue. So, pretty standard fare I guess. It seemed fairly balanced to me.

This will not review well, it's an MMO and requires an existing interest in the genre to really enjoy to any extent at all. I'd wager the best this will get from mainstream sites is 7/10. Some sites will score it really harshly but the game will sell plenty and it will easily be the best MMO on consoles.

I think this is a better game that FF14 and any other MMO like attempts on console so far.

12:01AM Eastern

9:01PM Pacific


They initially said Midnight local time, but with it being one giant megaserver for NA, I imagine it'll be up at the same time for everyone in NA. Just like the PAL region.

Whatever region you're in, digitally you unlock at midnight your timezone. That's the plan. It has gone live in most Asia countries (hence the Twitch streams) at midnight their time.

I think you're restricted to Bretons, Orcs, and Regards if you go DC. I think there's some way to go any race though if you buy some premium expansion.

Has an MMO ever been highly rated?

The last 24 hours have had my hype level for this game go through the roof. Girlfriend and I are getting the Xbox version first thing tomorrow morning.

My account just became activated just in time for this game! Been a console gamer all my life and this is my first MMO. I can't wait to dive in and neither can my daughter. Hopefully it'll be a lot of fun, it looks really cool.

Just hope Amazon deliver tomorrow as planned!

This is probably going to be a really dumb question, but do all of the servers share space with the different consoles/PC? For example will there be a server where PS4 and X-Bone peeps can play with PC users?

No. Xbox One users are locked to XB1. PS4 is PS4. PC is PC.

Midnight PST or something else? Also IIRC you had to be level 10 before you could join or create guilds....?
