Early Access Launch: Success

I’m going to keep this post pretty short. ESO has now been live for a full 24 hours, and we’ve all had some time to get reacquainted with Tamriel. I was very happy to see a much, much smoother launch than I expected. I can only speak for the EU megaserver, but there didn’t seem […]

Tips and Tricks for ESO

I can’t believe we’re less than 24 hours away from the early access of Elder Scrolls Online! To celebrate the early access launch, we have compiled a number of useful tips and tricks to help you out in ESO. Feel free to add your own suggestions below!

Why Potions are Extremely Powerful in ESO

I think a lot of people underestimate just how useful potions and Alchemy can be in Elder Scrolls Online. Many Elder Scrolls players do know the potential of Alchemy from the previous TES games. I’m one of the players who pretty much ignored alchemy altogether. I always looted potions and picked them up, but in […]
