Hello everyone! As before, here is a selection of questions from you guys and gals about Elder Scrolls Online that we attempt to answer to the best of our abilities. We will attempt to do this every Monday. Have questions yourself? The best places to ask are on our facebook and Twitter accounts. You may find them featured here on the next Ask Us Anything.
Hey josh and Kyle just wanna say love your work keep it up. If an alliance holds all the Keeps around the imperial city and hold the ruby throne aswell how will it be possible for the other alliance to take back the city if they have no Point of entry into cyrodil because they have no keep thanks And sorry another question I forgot to ask. If the emperor is only replaced once he is killed in battle what is to stop a player having his alliance capture the city him being crowned emperor and the just playing a different character so he can never be killed Again love your work keep it up and… FOR THE MERCHANT KING!!!!!! by Mitchell Antico
Each alliance has a safe zone that cannot be captured and that is there point of entry. We aren’t sure what needs to be done to crown another, that’s just what it sounded like. The current Emperor will probably be emperor until he/she’s killed or the Ruby Throne is captured by another alliance.
But zenimax stated that to capture the imperial city u must hold all keeps even the other alliances strongholds
Strongholds and Safe zones are different. The strongholds are around the White Gold Tower while the safe zones are places on the outer edge of Cyrodiil and cannot be captured.
hey I was wondering how many times can you morph an ability say a sword and shield ability (is it just a one off ) – also are there enchantments like absorb stamina/ health? that can be put on swords? thanks for any answers. by NU Percussive
Up to 5 times if I remember right. There’s a lot of enchants and I think most of the ones we’re used to will make it as well.
You guys should totally make your videos into podcasts so people (including me) can download them and listen wherever and whenever! I’ve already seen every video on the Elder Scrolls you guys have made (which are awesome) but everytime I would have to sit at home in a chair listening. I think a lot of people would love it. Please consider it. And don’t ever stop the Lore series! by Griffin Miniutti
You can download them with YTD and convert to mp3 for free. We aren’t making audio podcasts because it would split our viewer base.
heya guys. Just wondering what will they put fletching (arrow making) under. Will be part of smiting or a stand alone skill. Because my first alt will be an archer or maybe my main by Mark Dixon
There’s no arrows to worry about. Unlimited arrows.
Hey Shoddy Cast, do you think Zenomax will change their minds about chat bubbles and implament those as an option for us who want them for RP, or do you think it will be a job for our beloved modding comunity? by Simon Hansson
They’ve been pretty clear that they won’t be added bubbles. Leave it to the modders. That’s why they exist.
I know that ZOS has stated that crafting is going to be viable even after max level, but how viable do you think that it is going to actually be? I would hate for ESOs crafting system to end up like another game, where the only real viable crafting for endgame was augmentation slots and rare craftable armor components. I guess the question I have is, what kind of things do you WANT to be able to craft? by Ross Rutledge
You can craft every type of armor and weapon. Anything you can receive through PvE and PvP can be crafted. Not much else you can ask for…
Hey guys 2 big questions:1. besides a racial skill line what effect do you think race will have on skills, for example do you think the bosmer will have a better starting archery or the nords will be better with heavy armor, things like that. 2. will there only be one way in and out of cyrodiil for each alliance, because if im going khajiit and and im chilling in elsweyr (after they open that up) i wouldnt want to have to go all the way to a wayshrine to get to valenwood before i can get to cyrodiil, also there are quite a few cities on the elsweyr border by Ryan O’Neal
Race will only affect the racial skill line. There’s no initial boosts like you say, but some passives increase the leveling of certain skill lines. There’s only one way into Cyrodiil but you can get there from any Wayshrine so just find one in Elsweyr and you’re there.
if pick pocket is in the game could you pickpocket ather players?
thanks for your show it’s a gread way to stay up to date. by Wouter Schalkwijk
Pickpocketing will not be in the game. They think it promotes a negative atmosphere or something.
Will there be a Mailing system? like there was on WoW by Andrew Gross
Hi guys I got a question for ya. Two actually. We know that there will be vampires and werewolves but will there be new things like werebears? Second question is what if I don’t want to go to battle and just like somehow…. Get my own inn . Or something like that you know just wear normal clothes and just stay in town. Thanks guys and keep up the legendary work. Oh and of course , FOR THE QUEEN!!!! by Gabriel Lemos Finocchio Baraldi
We don’t know if werebears and other were creatures will be in. All we know is there’s werewolves and you can be one. This game is all about combat. There’s not much in regards to just walking around towns. IF that’s what you want to do, it probably isn’t worth your subscription fee.
