  1. The 2 new dungeons are actually really cool but really mechanic-intensive (ie. you don't follow the mechanic, you're screwed)! 

    Great improvements to PvE with trial/vDSA scaling and overall performance feels much better even with my potato ping. 


    Also I did vDSA as DPS with a *really* bad tank and that had to be the WORST experience I have ever had in ESO.

    4 1/2 h and a pathetic score because the tank was useless and wasn't taunting anything, or almost anything. Never again. >_>

  2. If anyone is looking to join up on the AFK guild send me an in-game message @Lore_lai. If I'm not online on your time, Pete is and he can add you too. 

    We can help you out with mats and stuff cos it can be rough when you're just starting out! :)


    :volcano:  Also, I re-rolled AD for PvP. Time to hunt Pete in the sewers dun dun DUUUUUUUUUUN!  :volcano:

  3. To be more specific - what you are describing, Arth, is just (well..."just") lag, not frame-rate drop. You could have 120 frames and still be affected by rubber-banding. 

    You *can* get framerate drops when the server lags but it's not guaranteed for that to happen. 


    But yeah, bottom line is that it's server-related. The bad framerates are because the game is poorly optimized (shocking, I know). It could just as well be single-player offline and you wold still see these bad framerates creep up.

  4. My actual lag (high ping etc.) seems to have fixed itself (miraculously...pfft) after the recent server maintenance they did but I have been getting quite a bit of odd framerate drops and there are areas where I only get 30 frames or lower, even though my PC is more than capable of handling the graphics.


    Heck, yesterday I was tanking (I made my NB a magicka tank) for gold pledge in Banished Cells and I started getting 3-5 fps CONSTANTLY >_>

    Needless to say that almost went horrible because you cannot react when frames drop so low and we had no healer because we were derping around.


    Regarding the framerate drops, I have tried everything on my end and it's the same. I even tried lowering the graphics to the point where the game looked disgusting only to find out I had *better* FPS with max graphics! :blink:


    One thing to note through re: high latency/in-game lag - I have noticed that at certain points when Cyro is *very* active, it can cause issues in strictly PvE zones too. This is mostly when there are a bunch of zergs flying all over the map. 

    Heck now I know that if I'm roaming in PvP and my ping gets ridiculously high, combined with a big drop in FPS, I'm approaching a zerg, possibly a zerg with stacked Proxy Detonation on them :X


    The last campaign days of the previous Azura's Star cycle have been pretty bad for some people in both PvP and PvE because every alliance came out of the sewers in a desperate try to win the campaign, or whatever nonsense they were trying to do (It was futile because EP had a huge score advantage and there was no way they could outscore us but meh).

    Now I am not looking forward to the last days of this Azura's cycle because a lot of guilds seem to have moved to this campaign and I dunno how the server will cope with that :X

  5. @Arth - most of the time I don't even run the game through the launcher but directly through the .exe in the game folder. Give it a try after you update and see if it helps?


    @Pete - :o You know that when I see blue/yellow in PvP zones I immediately go into killkillkill mode so... :devil:


    In other news, I'm really excited about Orsinium, and the baby bear and bear mount are OMGOMGOMGWANT!! We'll see what new bugs this DLC brings though. :troll: *sigh*

  6. :imp:  BLOOD FOR THE PACT!!  :imp:


    We'll have no smurfs/blueberries or bananas in here!



    *DISCLAIMER! This does not apply to smurfs/blueberries or bananas carrying LARGE amounts of Tel-Var stones - they can "safely" wander through and then...oh yeaaaah, cha-ching!

  7. OK - regarding addons I use - please keep in mind that I use quite a few of them and it would make no point in me listing all of them as recommended, especially since we each have different requirements (PvE, PvP, crafting, grouping with large +20 groups ect.).


    For example I use PapaCrown simply for when I am in PvP with big group because it makes the crown (group leader) way easier to see in the madness that is going on in PvP big battles.


    The addons I have listed are just as a guideline and to point others in the direction of the addon site. :)


    Happy hunting!




    :wub: !!!STIBBONS!!! :wub:

  8. I personally think it's a mistake. 

    The texture artist did not draw it backwards, they just flipped the alpha to be backwards. :P

    Whether that was intentional or not, who knows, but, IMO, it's a mistake or maybe an oversight. Accidentally flipping a file doesn't take much so it's not like you have to go through this long and thoughtful process to do it. 

  9. Helpful links.

    (this might be a bit messy until we collect more things)


    General go-to place that I personally recommend for guides, builds and a lot of ESO info and great knowledge. (Deltias Gaming) 

    Tamriel Foundry - a great place not only for guilds but also for Class theory-crafting. You can find lots of good advice there and great builds. (thanks for reminding me, JC :) )


    Comprehensive Alchemy guide with all you need to know. For all you alchemist out there, that is a very good thread and got me started with Alchemy.

    Check the spoiler tag (nice table of alchemy ingredients with their effects) and the Google doc for handy potions! 


    Want to see how your armor will look with various materials/racial designs before you craft it so that you don't waste materials? :PGo Here And use the Armor drop-down and choose your category there. 


    Crafted Sets Info (with locations for crafting stations). - remember! some of these craftable sets provide really nice bonuses, even for those that require few traits researched.




    ESOTU allows the use of user created AddOns to enhance the gameplay (UI, research assistants, etc.)


    You can find lots of AddOns HERE and you can choose to manage them through the Minion app or install manually.

    I highly recommend: Destinations | LoreBooks | SkyShards | AI Research Grid | Lost Treasure | Circonians FilterIt for starters.


    Some you might not want, it's up to personal preference (like not wanting to know where the treasure maps treasures are and want to find yourself - although Lost Treasure is configurable so you can turn that one off), so take a look on the site and see what fits your needs. :)


    That's about it for now. If anyone needs more help or is interested in a particular thing, let me know in the comments and I'll do my best to gather the info and link it here.

    Happy hunting!

  10. Let me guess...



    ...you saw this coming. :troll:


    Well, yes. It was just about time. 

    Not only will a general thread keep things organized here, for whoever is interested, but I can also make a collection of helpful articles/links/places that you can go to in case you need info.


    Without further ado, let's get this started. (also, I fail at formatting - shocking, I know)


    'Tis the year 582 of the Second Era and Nirn needs YOU!

    Stand together and help drive the evil back!




    We have also formed an AFK Mods in-game guild. If you wish to join, please contact me via PM here, on AFK forums, or in-game via email at @Lore_lai. 


  11.  I can't imagine how they'd develop for Xbox 360 and Xbox One / PS4 / PC simultaneously and not sacrifice the game quality.

    Oh for f&$@ sake, Beth. :peer:




    Or take cues from Dead Money - "Begin again, but know when to let go." 

    But yay for Fallout I guess. The whole old gen, if it's really gonna happen, kinda sours this whole thing though.



    The reason for the limited support of Wrye Bash is due to simplicity of this guide.

    What? Why do people keep referring to WB as being hard to use? 


    I feel like this has become a trend a (long) while ago and now a lot of people say WB is hard to use....just because, and some don't/can't even give a reason as to why.

    Heck, when I first used it for Oblivion, I heard so many people mentioning it was hard to use, that I myself had that suspicion which was easily thrown out the window after I read Alt's guides.  

  13. If they are releasing the game for consoles then it would have been a pretty dick move to ask for subscription because, on consoles, if you want to play online you have to pay - for both Xbox and PS. 

    Not to mention, with how high the subscription was, not many would have went for it, considering they already have to pay a tax.


    And they can't just not ask for subscription on consoles because the PC gamers would rage, and for good reason.


    Even more reason to build my new PC - I will definitely buy the game now. 


    And I will NOT be getting it for console because I will NEVER pay that stupid console subscription for online. That thing can get eaten by mountain lions. 

  14. I honestly wouldn't give up Bash for anything available ATM. Even with the "limited" Skyrim features. Even more so for Oblivion. 

    It does what it says it does and does it darn well. 


    Also, I personally think everyone should know how to manually install/uninstall mods (not like you need a Phd to learn how to do that).

    With Skyrim and NMM, I see more and more people panicking when their preferred automated program fails somehow, just because they never went in the old fashion way. :P 


    As for having multiple profiles and whatnot - I never found the need for it. I'm, very careful with my LO, even if I have a lot of mods, and if I want something gone, It's one click away with Bash too. 

    For a test-bed, I keep another folder that is squeaky clean with only the basics (Project Patches and LAL) and can switch to that myself anytime.
