Elder Scrolls patch 1.1 that will introduce a new zone Craglorn is currently in beta testing on the Public Test Server (PTS). Patch introduces a lot of bug fixes and changes to current skills. We wanted to give a picture of what the players can expect with this patch by providing you with a skill calculator for all classes with updated skill numbers/descriptions. Bellow you will find the skill calculator to help you browse through updated skills (click on the buttons to see the calculator for different classes), but we also compiled a list of changes we manged to see while building the calculator. We couldn’t gather all the changes so best use our live ESO skill calculator in parallel with the one bellow to see all the changes for yourself. Let us know what you think about the changes in the comment section at the bottom of the article.
NOTE: These changes are in BETA testing. All of this is just preliminary and might change by the time the patch goes live. Do not take these for granted. These are here just for the community to analyze.
NOTE 2: All skill values in the calculator are calculated based on the following character values: 500 Magicka, 500 Stamina, 30 Weapon damage, 30 Spell damage.
Skill changelog is bellow the calculator so scroll down the page to read the changes
One of the most asked questions during the beta was how to respec my skills or how to reset my character attributes in Elder Scrolls Online. Due to only the first couple of zones being available during stress tests and only the last beta giving access to the tier 3 zone many people started thinking there is no way to respec in this game. Luckily for us they were wrong. There are conditions that need to be met for you to be able to respec though. You will have to be able to reach the tier 3 zone of your faction. Aldmeri Dominion will have to go to the Elden Root in Grahtwood zone. Daggerfall Covenant members will have to visit the city of Wayrest in Stormhaven zone. Those loyal to the Ebonheart Pact have to visit Deshaan and its main city Mournhold. You can reach these zones with a lower level character if you are careful and keep to the main road. This exploration might even net you some extra discovery experience.
Inside each of these cities you can find Rededication Shrine POIs. This is where you’ll find three shrines. One is used to reset your skills, one resets your attributes (magicka, stamina, health point distribution) and the shrine of Mara lets you use Ring of Mara to “Espouse your beloved”. There is a monetary cost for resetting either skills or attributes. goes up with the number of respecs you previously did and scales up with the level of your character. If you made a mistake early on (around level 10) and want to try another build or attribute distribution you can do this for around 1400 gold pieces. At higher levels the cost is considerably higher. At higher levels, though, you have access to so many skyshards and skill points from quests that you should be able to max out pretty much your whole skill tree. Just in case you made a royal mess of your skill choices you will still have the ability to reset them and start over. Here’s a short video showing map locations of all three Rededication Shrines.
For some members of the press TESO NDA was partially lifted on Friday, February 7th, and new videos showing ESO game play popped up on youtube like mushrooms after rain. I came across an interesting video made by our friends at teso-gameguide.fr that shows a compilation of skill animations for each class. Enjoy.
The developers of The Elder Scrolls Online give us another peek into the world of TESO in yet another edition of ‘Ask Us Anything”. This week is all about progression, how you can spend your skill points, how often skills can morph, crafting advancement, all that good stuff. There are also some questions exclusively from a a French and German website, which helped makes this one of the longest “Ask Us Anything” articles to date.

The ESO team has put together a wonderful little video showcasing the character development process players will have access to in The Elder Scrolls Online. They discuss different ways to gain experience points, how skills grow, how using different equipment gives you access to different skills, and even touch on the ability to become a werewolf or a vampire.
The video is a must watch for anyone planning on playing the game when it releases, so take a look and let us know what you think in the comments below.
