eso tips
We are 36 hours away from the first permanent characters being created in Elder Scroll Online. We prepared a Tips & Tricks article a while back for Beta weekends that is still a very valid and valuable resource of information for those starting out for the first time. I wanted to share some more advanced tips that might not be that obvious at start. Here are top ten things you want to keep on your mind in the first 15 levels.

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.
