Lorebook locations for each zone

lorebooks by zone

We deployed a quick update for our Lorebook Locations Database today. We added pages that will show all the lorebooks, that we were able to find, located in a single zone. This means that if you are collecting books by zone and you think you missed some you can see a map of that zone with each book marked in its location. You can also click on each name to get a full walkthrough for that particular collectible. You can also mark all locations of the book in that zone.

This feature was requested by some of you in the comments section and is provided in addition to screenshot guides for each book we found as well as the copy of the in-game interface you can find on the index page.

We still have some way to go to enter all the discovered items. We are at about 400 entries right now and about as many to go. We hope to have them all available by the time the game launches for everyone. We thought it would be cooler to provide you with locations without the need for you to run any addons or upload data. Instead, we wanted to do the legwork ourselves and let you guys enjoy the game without hinderance.

If you have any suggestions on how we can improve some of our site’s sections please feel to let us know.

ESO Quests Database

We are proud to announce that we have made available our Elder Scrolls Online quests database. This is a searchable list of all quests found in ESO. We provide basic information about each quest, like quest level, zone, text and objective information. What sets our database apart is that some of the quests also contain starting NPC information as well as map marked location of where the quest starts in certain zones. We went one step further and provided full screenshot walkthroughs and guides for some of the quests (like Izad’s Treasure and Rending Flames) so if you get stuck while adventuring we hope these guides will help you resolve their problems quicker. If there are quests you would like us to provide guides for please leave a comment on quest’s page and we’ll attempt to accomodate you once the game launches and we have access to its content. We will try and provide starting location and NPC information for as many quests as we can, but since this is all manual work it might take a few weeks to enter all the information we collected during the beta period. Any suggestions and feedback are welcome, but in the meantime feel free to browse our Quests Database.

UPDATE: We managed to update the quests database with quest type data so you can now find all quests related to the Main Story or to the Mage and Fighters Guild.

Grahtwood, Stormhaven, Deshaan Skyshards and more for final beta

final eso beta

We are several hours away from the last beta test of Elder Scrolls Online before the game launches in two weeks. We have been very busy preparing content and guides that we hope will make some of the tasks during this beta easier. Here’s a comprehensive list of new things you might find useful while exploring Tamriel during this beta weekend.

Grahtwood, Stormhaven and Deshaan will be playable this weekend. These are all level 16-23 zones for each of the factions and are seen for the first time in the beta. We prepared Skyshard location guides with screenshots and exact map locations for each of the zones.

We also updated our ESO Skill Calculator with new data and abilities. You can now pick skills for two different weapon sets. You get the ability to have two weapons sets at level 15 and you can pick and choose your skills in our calculator and assign them to weapon set one or two (W1 or W2) based on what play style each weapon set represents. We had several hundred builds submitted to the website so you might want to browse through those to see how other players are planning to build their characters. As an extra bonus we updated tooltips to show what bonus morphing a certain skill will provide. Look at the green text bellow a morph to help you decide easier which morph to choose.

Don’t forget to check out our Tips and Tricks article to learn some things that might help your game experience be more enjoyable.

We started compiling guides to help you find Treasure maps in the game and the first of those are Bleakrock Isle and Auridon Treasure Map guides. These maps are random drops from chests or mobs and they give you hints on finding a hidden treasure. These are fairly hard to find and spot so in order to help you we decided to compile guides for each zone and each treasure map.

We hope you enjoy this final beta weekend in Elder Scrolls Online and the content we prepared for you and hope to see you in Tamriel on April 4. 2014.

ESO Cyrodiil Skyshards

Cyrodiil is the main PvP map in Elder Scrolls Online, but as every zone in ESO it also contains Skyshards. There are 45 shards in Cyrodiil, fifteen for each faction. We have been hunting for these because they provide a great way to increase your skill points pool. They are separated by faction in your Achievements so we provided created guides for each faction, but you can collect all of them if you are lucky enough to avoid enemy players and defenses. Some of these Skyshards are well hidden or protected by very tough enemies so if you are planning on venturing into hostile territory or public dungeons you might consider bringing a few friends along. We managed to find almost all of them and you can find them at:

1. Cyrodiil Aldmeri Dominion Skyshards
2. Cyrodiil Daggerfall Covenant Skyshards
3. Cyrodiil Ebonheart Pact Skyshards

We managed to collect most of these solo, but those closest to faction’s home bases are impossible to get unless you are fully dominating the battlefield or have a raid coming along to claim the Skyshards. Even with that in mind you can collect a good number of shards and skill points by devoting some time to adventuring through Cyrodiil.

TESO Life

morrowind

Morrowind was the first Elder Scrolls game I played. Prior to that I did not play many RPG games, but a friend of mine highly suggested Morrowind so I tried it out. Several months later I was still playing Morrowind. Feeling of entering a massive, dynamic and vibrant fantasy world with its rules and secrets and hidden gems of adventure scattered all over the place is what I remember my sessions with the game as. I have spent many hours playing RPG games since, always looking for that feeling of traversing a fantasy world that Morrowind was so good at providing. I sometimes found it, but mostly I did not. Even Oblivion, the next game in the Elder Scrolls series did not provide me with that Morrowind feeling. It felt a little blend in comparison and I only played through the main storyline before moving onto other games. Luckily, Skyrim came out and brought back that whole enormous world feeling.
