Just watched a video for the upcoming World of Warcraft Garrison / Housing additions and have to say (despite it being WoW) it actually looked really interesting !
The overall principal/mechanics of it I thought were great (think Skyrim housing… then take it a lot further) The fact they have managed to merge housing, daily missions, crafting and a host of other things into the whole thing is very clever.
We’ve been asking Zenimax for housing since beta and eventually we are going to get it (apparently.) BUT… looking at this just ‘housing’ is a little lame now. Looking at what RIFT did and more recently Wildstar and now WoW’s Garrison expansion, Zenimax are going to have a hard time providing us with something this immersive and detailed. Even EVE Online has started down the path of player owned structures. If Zenimax don’t do something sooner rather than later I feel they may be too late !
Back to the vid. OK, yes it’s WoW, the graphics are cheap, the gameplay is questionable but obviously a lot of thought has gone into this garrison thing and it is going to add a whole new level of immersion into their game ! Zenimax / ESO need to do this, only better and with TES passion ! Just image all that but with ESO aesthetics !
Let the flaming, oops I mean discussion begin !…..
WTF buffing templar? Te 2H ult favors stam and will slot right in on all of the stam builds that are FoTM. It is exactly what they shouldnt do. The meta and TTK is already pretty garbage for an MMO. In a lot of cases there is zero counter play because certain sets + stam builds already destroy people in a few hits with NBs before people can even react. That isnt rewarding or fun game play. This is moving closer and closer to CoD.
Here’s the thing: Templar is now the only class that can effectively (that means good at) dps, tank and heal, which means all the role available in the game. Yes yes, NB can tank, DK can heal, but is it as good as templar? Nope. And before you all jump into conclusion that I’m a “negative” person, a troll, hater,… hear me out. I don’t say this because I hate ESO, but because I love it, and I want it to be even better. We can only make ESO better when we can admit its weakness and try to improve it.ESO – ALL NEW WEAPON ULTIMATES
Just came back to the game a day or two ago after a month+ hiatus and have noticed the gameplay is extremely jittery at times. I was getting very low FPS drops in areas with absolutely no one else around. I first noticed it in Craglorn while running around nodes looking for nirnhorn so I thought I would check other areas. Glenumbra experienced the same thing, low FPS and even a load screen between the Wayshrine and the Woodworking table.
So I made a new character and during the character creation the animation was noticeably more jittery. Changing from soft facial features to angular didn’t apply the changes while the character idle animation went by smoothly, instead any adjustment seemed to make the animation skip or reset before applying them. Got to Stros m’kai and sure enough, was hitting 5~10 FPS in the middle of nowhere sporadically which makes it difficult to run thru the streets without colliding into things much less timing attacks…
Tried the PTS with absolutely no add-ons what so ever, and same deal there. I haven’t changed anything with my PC at all since I last played and these problems weren’t there before so.. is it just me, or has the FPS issue become even worse in PVE areas lately?
