I'm glad we chose Ebonheart...

Hello!

I just wanted to give a shout-out that I'm happy Gaiscioch chose the Ebonheart pact. I think it's got an interesting selection of races to choose from.  (Yes, that's my Norn Warrior in GW2 that likes to say "Good Norning!".  :)

In regards to the Daggerfall Covenant, I think playing a Breton or Orc would be my 2nd choice of alliance. 

For me, it's a relief that we did not pick Aldmeri dominion (was never a fan of all the different elf races in EQ1 (Hight elf, Wood elf, Half elf, Dark elf, Keebler elf?) 

Garyc

 FOR THE NORD!!! Yeah I kind of like playing an Orc as well but that's okay. I like the story behind the Nords but mostly I like there mind set on life.  Music, Mead and Battle. Throw in a heavy Scottish accent and you have my kind of people.   I know the guild doesn't have a problem with us playing different factions but I would really love to see some great, "friendly" rivalry between the factions.  Sorry to those playing Daggerfall and Aldmeri but in TESO I'm going to try and kill all of you with great joy and glee in my eyes lol. Nothing personal, just truly hoping for the kind of blood thirsty rivalry that was once present in WoW.

Even though I'm playing a Nord on the Ebonhart Pact as my main, I'll undoubtedly be playing at least one character from each alliance just to experience the culture.  I cannot play Elder Scrolls without playing a half-elf Breton Thief so my first Alt will be running through Daggerfall.

Well - I hope you all don't hold it against me when I play a Dark Elf - I want to be a bit of an outcast so it is ok if you don't speak to me often :)

But a lot will be dictated once I can actually see them "in action" so I can get a "feel" for my character - that makes a huge difference to me.  I just know I have never enjoyed non "humanoid" characters - so the Argonian is out.

You can have alts in each race, you just wont be able to group up with anyone not your faction or adventure in areas where you can run across other family. We will focus our primary events in Ebonheart Pact but welcome people to experiment with the others.

 Booo! Hisss!! ##throws creams pies at the non-Ebonheart folk, then dives back into his mighty pillow fortress##........... meh, oh well. I'm thinking the "true rivalry between factions" thing just isn't going to happen in TESO lol.  This is going to be like going to a sports bar to watch the championship game only to find your the only one in the bar actually cheering any particular team lol.  I'm sure it will still be fun in other ways though. 

 

  I wonder how this is going to work for the FvFvF part as far as strategy goes.  Meaning... say I'm mainly supporting Ebonheart. So what's preventing me from going on a Daggerfall alt and then telling everyone in raidcall what Daggerfall is calling out for troop movements in there map chat?  I suppose they could just party up with only people they trust and keep there call out for troop movements in there party chat. But like in our case we tend to have an open call out to the map for any one wanting to join our events. We would most likely have spies I would think.  Guess I'll just have to wait and see. Not going to worry to much about it. I'm sure the game developers must have some thing in place to deal with that kind of scenario.

I thought once you hit level cap you had the option to travel to the other lands -- seems like I heard something along those lines where you could experience the entire world on just one character.

 jenkins I hope people don`t do that ,  for example i played Dest on warhammer  from sept 08 - jan 2011 , then i switched to order for a change plus order started losing  about that time and dest was starting to win ,  as i find it more fun playing the under dog i switched to order to help out  the losing side .

 

  However every now and then I`d log on my old dest and wave at taunt my order guilds members sometimes i`d even jump in vent with them and they`d spot me and i`d have the whole guild targeting me and  my toon would exploid, haha .   or I`d have them chasing me all over going OMG IT~S DIRK GETM!   and the chase was on , it`d be great fun  and i`d pop in vent to laugh with them for a bit ,

however  I`ve never given cross faction info  to either side , whatever toon i`m playing  I`m playing it to win , but jumping in say my guild vent /raidcall etc on one faction while playing the other and giving strat info etc to help them win is not   what I do or do i like others doing it .

 

 Most of the time i wouldn`t get on my other faction vent except after i`d been killed a few times by my guildes , then I`d jump on to laugh with them about it for a few then get off vent so they wouldn`t think i`m giving away their info.

 however I frown on the cross faction cheating stuff ,  same as people who farmed their crossfaction toons to lvl up their new  toon etc ,  never cared for it and a few times even tho i reported them , i searched the entire zone  to find where they were then   camped them killing the other faction toon  until they gave up or switched zones .

 in warhammer and daoc you got a kill message when you or other side killed a toon , stating  so and so was killed by so and so insert general area like the boggy swamp etc .   So you could try and find who and where they were and getm lol .

@ Oldman

This happens In all games - even when they can't be in the same guilds... they will have spies who create characters using another account and even join guilds that are their rivals - just to give reports on movement and what is being stated in map chat.  I hate it.  Many people hate it.  It is part of the game and what we have to live with.   We just work with what we have and have fun all the same.

 

If we see it happen - we just become submarines.... run silent, run deep.  I'm actually not sure whether guilds are Alliance specific - so you might have an alt - they just can't be in Gaiscioch.  Maybe Fog knows.   The only place where this becomes really important is in the AvAvA lands anyway.  I will most likely only ever be Ebonheart :)   I am Gaiscioch!

@Oldman From what I heard you won't be joining the same FvFvF instance with multiple characters if they are in different factions. So Playing in instance 1 with Gaiscioch as Ebonheart, you can't send an Aldmeri alt into instance 1 to spy on the Aldmeri. The alt would be forced into instance 2, or instance 3, and so forth. Now that won't be able to stop people with multiple accounts but it'll prevent most spying via alts.

The roleplayer in me wanted Aldmeri Dominion, but the gamer in me wanted  Ebonheart...

Going to HAVE to switch over to Aldmeri at some point, just to see what I'm missing, but there's NO WAY I could've been happy with NOT running around in The Rift for a while :)

Edited because I can't believe I forgot to mention how stoked I am to get to explore Black Marsh and all of the slavers' Houses (anyone wanna help me find the central location of House Dres?) [man, I hope the game is THAT detailed... I really liked exploring and learning the lore and stories behind the different houses and meeting some of the personalities within the houses... I really miss Morrowind...May go play it for a bit while I wait on something irl]

Can't wait to see you guys in-game!

I will be rolling a Norn, nightblade.  I would have preferred the Briton, but since we are going Ebonheart I am stuck with the Norn.  Do not like playing non human characters.  Really looking forward to the battles in Cyrodiil, especially if the battleground is as large as we have been told.  Small unit tactics in GW2 battlegrounds are difficult since it is so easy to run from one side of the map to the other. I doubt you will find me in PVE after I arrive in Cyrodiil, time will tell. I will be trying for Kaytlin of Skye as my name, since my ancestors are of MacDonald of Skye.  Hope to see everyone in ESO as soon as it is released.

I'll admit to being a bit surprised to find out Ebonheart was the choice. I spent a fair bit of time looking at the founding lore here on the site before joining up, and really thought it would be Daggerfall, simply because the Bretons are the most Gaelic-based of the ES races.

 

Looking at Tamriel Foundry, it appears that Ebonheart may end up the most numerous faction. I'm guessing that's folks who played Morrowind and Skyrim wanting to "go home" again, because Ebonheart certainly has the least inspiring racial bonuses (based on current available information).

Yes, once you reach max level, you can go to another alliance's lands and do all their quests, from starting zone on.  However, it will be a special instance of that other alliance's lands where all the mobs are also scaled up to max level.  Not only does this allow you to experience the story, quests, and lands of the other factions, it also allows you to collect all the skill shards in those lands, as well as all the rewards from the quests.  It isn't clear yet whether you would see people from other alliances when you do this.

I am very excited about this feature, as it gives you 3x the amount of content you can experience and explore without having to roll an alt.

I'm gonna go all lore-freakout here, so bear with me. The orc (or orsimer) of the ES series were originally Altmer that followed the god Trinimac. Boethiah, a Daedra, disguised himself as trinimac and led off a splinter group of the Altmer to form the Chimer (who would later become the Dunmer/Dark elves), and when Trinimac tried to stop him Boethiah changed Trinimac into Malacath and his followers into the Orsimer/Orcs. (In a more literal translation of the lore he ate Trinimac and then digested him into Malacath... no wonder the orcs are considered ugly.) So, long story short, the Orcs are definitely elves. Or at least the digested remnants of elves.

If possible would one of the lead Elder maybe explain why we choose EP? Was there research into other large and major guilds to find out where powerbases are going to make it well rounded? Was it because in all the games  EP has always been the more popular?

I am more then happy with EP do not get me wrong. I am just wondering if there  is anything solid behind the choice?

Garyc,

I agree. At first, I wasn't too keen on the Pact. Traditionally, I don't like playing wherever there is a race that can even remotely be related to Dark Elves. You always end up with 1,000 R.A. Salvatore fanboys calling themselves Drizzt or Jarlaxle and trying to rationalize why they are really Drow and not Dunmer (ESO) or Tier'Dal (EverQuest) or whatever. Then I realized, as annoying as they are to me, they are a very small minority and whatever makes them happy shouldn't bother me so much.

I started warm to the Pact more and more when I seriously looked at the distribution of the races. The Pact clearly provides the best variety. When I broke it down, it looked like this;

Ebonheart Pact

  • Nord (Human)
  • Dunmer (Elf, Dark)
  • Argonian (Other, Lizard)

Aldmeri Dominion

  • Altmer (Elf, High)
  • Bosmer (Elf, Wood)
  • Khajit (Other, Feline)

Daggerfall Covenant

  • Breton (Human)
  • Redguard (Human)
  • Orc (Human, with tusks)

So, did I really want to play something with variety? Or, did I want Elf/Elf/Cat? Or, Did I want Human/Human/Ugly Human? At that point the choice was clear. Ebonheart was the way to go. Of course, now that preorders can play any race across any faction, it really doesn't matter. However, I still believe it is the right choice as it will provide the most variety for new members who come to us after launch.

Just my 2cp on the matter. Thanks for reading.
