Finally decided on a playstyle for Elder Scrolls Online

Posted in MMO with tags , , , , on 28/06/2015 by arthur1977

I experimented with every class and multiple races until I finally decided on what my main character is going to be (for now).  After spending time trying out various melee builds both tanking and DPS I fell back in to my comfort zone of blasting enemies from afar with arcane energy.  I love the versatility of this game, but I do admit it handcuffed me for a bit trying to narrow down my selection.  What I finally settled on was creating a High Elf Sorcerer of the Ebonheart pact, Gutvyk the Sojourner.

Gutvyk the Sojourner I am still very early in the game but am really enjoying the questing, exploration and leveling system.  I am going straight old school mage with a destruction staff and hurling Mage’s fury, crystal shard, and wall of elements at my enemies. I did play with the idea of being a dual wielding or bow sorcerer but settled on the classic approach for my first character to keep it simple.  After checking out some builds online I am casually following a leveling build I found searching through the forums,  ESO – Sorcerer Build.

If there is anyone else kicking around the lower levels on the PS4 feel free to look me up.  Also let me know what classes you like so when I eventually make an alternate I have some choices.

The downside of modern gaming…

One of my biggest frustrations about the new age of gaming is day one necessary upgrades.  

I had the fortune to leave work 2 hours early today and decided to pick up a copy of Elder Scrolls Online.  I didn’t have any grand plans of playing, I was just hoping to log in and create my character and work my way through some of the tutorial.  I excitedly booted up my PS4 and put in the game only to be met with a 15GB update (estimated download time of ~7 hours).

At times like this I truly miss the days when you got to play the game right out of the box.  

I am still looking forward to playing Elder Scrolls Online, unfortunately my introduction to the game will be slightly delayed.

Destiny: House of Wolves PvE Impressions

Destiny HoW

I had been taking a bit of a break from Destiny but have jumped back in with the release of the second expansion, the House of Wolves.  My RL friend (32 Titan) and I (28 Warlock) have been two maning most of the new content and really enjoying it.

The Rift is a nice new social area that looks great and I can see myself heading there over the Tower.  The quests have been challenging with the enemies levels ranging between 26-30 but we have been taking our time working through the new environments.  The venture into the Vault of Glass in a quest was fun since I don’t see myself ever attempting the raid.  Some of the bounties I have been having problems taking down the last guy before the time limit runs out and he leaves.  I was doing the Dervis, Wolf Baroness bounty on Earth with 2 other players when the final boss got bored and left when we had him down to 20% health,  grrr.

Overall House of Wolves seems to be a nice little addition to the Destiny universe.  The new quests are challenging but manageable if you are willing to take your time.  I am not a huge PvPer but I hope to try out the  Trials of Osiris this week.  My skill level in first person shooters leaves a lot to be desired so I don’t see me unlocking any of the nice new PvP items anytime soon.

Let me know what you think of House of Wolves by posting a comment.
