Nice turnout this week; thanks for the contributions. With 25% of the votes going to hybrid, it shows the power of choice in ESO. You can play anything you want while wearing anything you want. This allows you to throw stealth fireballs, fire arrows while healing the back-line or charging your enemies with dual swords when hyped up on skooma.
It seems the next most popular playstyle with 18% will be the stealthy assassin. This is no surprise since most people will at least dabble into stealth and sneaking. Should Zenimax Online heed our advice and unlock faction territories, it may put even more emphasis on stealth to survive the enemy faction.
The rest speaks for itself but with 15% of players not sure what they’ll play, they simply want to get their hands on the game and strive to get their character’s soul back from Molag Bal!

Well well well… it seems the reason I can’t get a group for a dungeon is because you bastards don’t like them. I kid of course but it is true that many people choose simply not to participate in dungeons. I have to tell you firsthand that this is a mistake. I know they aren’t that thrilling after the first time but explorable mode dungeons can be hugely beneficial to your bank account. With my Farmer’s Almanac video on making gold through dungeon farming, I proved to you that you can make around 5 gold an hour with decent salvaging luck. I’ll repost the video at the bottom in case you’ve missed the video.
For those that do like dungeons, the majority of you, with 19% of the votes, enjoy Citadel of Flame the most. I too enjoy CoF the most because path 1 and 2 can easily be done in less than an hour with a large payout.
If you get anything out of this post or the linked video, I hope it’s that dungeons are worth your time if you have gold requirements or wish to gain better armor. And don’t neglect Fractals of the Mists. I know it’s very annoying but it can boost your way to a legendary weapon and it’s a great place to pick up rares.
Don’t forgot to participate in this week’s polls. What’s your favorite GW2 aspect and what business model do you hope ESO will use?
