Elder Scrolls Online Beginner Tips

Today we are looking into Elder Scrolls Online for beginners.

Elder Scrolls Online was one of the best moves in the gaming world. The game was released after the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. For those who did not play the game, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was the best game for several years in the market. So Elder Scrolls Online was a very good marketing move. But the game did not start very well. Maybe one particular problem was the game required a subscription. This was considered a very bad move by the gamers, and later Zenimax Online had to drop this requirement.

But as we have said before, the game did not have the best of starts. But over time, it started to attract more and more attention. This was simply because other MMORPGs started to make mistakes, and ESO was able to capitalize on this. Today, Elder Scrolls Online has a very healthy player base. We will give tips and tricks for beginners in Elder Scrolls Online.

  • Purchasing Elder Scrolls Online

Elder Scrolls Online is a very good game. But the game relies heavily on monetization. We advise you to buy the most basic game, in the beginning. This will allow you to test out the game, and if you like it, then you can purchase the additional DLC’s. ESO Plus membership is still live in the game. It does offer some nice bonuses, but it is also fine if you do not want to purchase it.

  • Character Creation in Elder Scrolls Online

So you have bought the game. ESO is a sandbox game. This game is different from other RPG games. Players can use any race that they want. There are some racial bonuses, of course, however, these bonuses are not very strong. If you want to create a tank from an Argonian, it is possible. So choosing your race is not very important. However, races belong to 3 different factions. These factions are Aldmeri Dominion, Ebonheart Pact and Daggerfall Covenant. Each race belongs to one of these. Only Imperials do not belong to any one of these factions. Factions come into play in PvP, so do not worry about PvE. Currently, there are 5 classes within ESO these are, Sorcerer, Warden, Nightblade, Dragonknight, and Templar. We suggest Dragonknight for beginners. Their rotation is easier than most, and they are fun to play.

  • Elder Scrolls Online Leveling

In ESO your abilities, spells and even your armor has levels that you can progress. It is important to slot a different spell from each ability you have unlocked. Also, you can put even weapons to slots that you are not using, therefore they can improve also. To improve your armor, you need to wear 3 pieces from the same armor level. This will allow you to progress that armor level. Generally for Tanks heavy armor, for melee DPS medium and the healer and spell DPS light armor is used. The game does allow many ways to combine these armors so you can experiment.

Leveling in ESO is easy, hitting 50 as a casual player is possible in 2 weeks. After that, you will start collecting Champion Points. These points are account-wide. So if you can collect as much as you can, it will be helpful for your other characters. A minimum of 160 points is best. Because after 160 points your armors do not scale. It is easy to collect these points, so do not worry.
