The release of The Elder Scrolls Online is still a ways off but that doesn’t mean we can’t make a few suggestions on what we would like to see when we take our first steps in game. The Elder Scrolls series is filled with tons of lore, mysteries and cultures giving TES:O a lot of opportunity to become one of the best MMOs to date, here are a few things we hope they don’t miss:
The Ability to Mount a Guar
Guars are wonderful creatures, they’ve proven their usefulness in transporting goods from town-to-town and even appear to be fairly loyal to their owners. It would be great if players in TES:O could take these creatures a step further and use them as a mount or at the very least an extra storage option.
A Huge Dwemer Side Story
The Dwemer people are the focal point of a massive mystery in the Elder Scrolls universe. Their advanced technology and their intelligence couldn’t save them from their own extinction. What happened to them? Did they die by their own hand, or did a greater power decide their fate?
A Farming Profession
Farming is a big part of the cultures and economy throughout Tamriel, having places to farm outside of towns and villages wouldn’t be a bad thing in this MMO. Past Online RPGs such as Dransik allowed players to plant seeds and eventually harvest their crops in real-time, it’s time modern-day MMOs implement this profession as well.
The Elder Scrolls Online is built around three factions, each of which are all fighting for province of Cyrodiil. These factions will play a huge part in the PvP portion of the game, players will be able to participate in huge battles against their competing factions. However, players should also have the ability to form guilds and wage wars on others, for some scaled down action. Guild Halls would be the base of these encounters, victories would grant the champions materials to improve their halls and temporary buffs.
The Elder Scrolls Online takes place 1,000 years before the events of Skyrim, which means there’s a lot of lore to be covered during the life of TES:O. World events such as the God Vivec flooding Morrowind to rid the land of Akaviri invaders during the 2nd era would be welcomed by Elder Scroll lore enthusiast.
