I don't grind and still have just over 1000 CP - mind you I have 14 max level toons so I get a fair bit of xp and gold just from doing daily writs!

Crouching Peeky, Casual Rascals is a decent guild unless you are into hardcore trial runs etc.

ESOL basic game is free to play for 6 days and then 50% off to purchase. Have I missed the boat on this one - is it still a popular game? Does anyone still play from here? I don't want to join a game that is for all intents and purposes over the hill. Cheers.

I think there's plenty of life left in it yet (especially as it's one of Bethesda's cash cows and they have little else on the horizon).

Been feeling the itch to play this again lately (having hit a wall about a year or so ago) so may join you shortly.

Playing this now - help needed so any general hints tips or advice would be very welcomed.

Also I just can't do the lockpick thing at all - even on simple. Help!

Am playing this at the moment and the sheer scale is brilliant.

The graphics, content and NPC's have all improved dramatically.

The new expansion packs are brilliant

I mean the game has moved on a bit since Morrowind. I played Blackwood but I've never raided in this game.

I see there is now another expansion out!

Is anyone playing?

Yep, although I can't decide whether I like the card game in the latest expansion.

As per above, not since 2019. Got frustrated at being unable to compete in certain areas due to my incompetence.

I didn't do any Blackwood until I had done the rest of the game (DLCS) and in the end I wish I had because I could have levelled up my companions... Well Mirri not Bastion because he's an absolute wetwipe

Not heard about this card game. I'm interested though.

There is a drop on Twitch at the moment for a few crates, pets, costumes and a mount.

I thought this game was particularly casual, add-ons give quality of life. What part were you not be able to compete? Or are you saying you were bad at the game?

The best raid level players can parse around 100k DPS with animation cancelling etc. The best I've managed is around 50k but then I only do the occasional trial and haven't done one since not long after Blackwood was released.

Much of Cyrodiil. Anywhere around the centre of the map. Trials. P2P (just not for me).

Can't you just ignore that part of the game? It doesn't actually require you to do any of it?

When you've done everything else there is to do, it's either have a go at that or knock it on the head.

I did both, eventually.
