The Elder Scrolls is one of the most revered franchises in RPG history. As soon as Bethesda announced that they were going to release an online chapter, I knew it was going to be huge. I had no idea. This game is set in a gigantic world that can be very intimidating, especially for an intermediate player like myself who wasn’t always sure of how to progress. I decided to buy The Elder Scrolls Online Leveling Guide by Killer Guides, hoping it would make my gameplay more efficient and enjoyable, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results.
With this guide on my side, playing became a breeze. It’s written in a straightforward, easy to follow manner that’s useful to both beginners and seasoned veterans. I was able to build a character that suits my style of play perfectly, whether it’s aggressive, defensive or balanced, warrior or mage, Nightblade or Dragonknight. These builds made getting into the game faster and easier, and it ensured tons of replay value. There is an extensive list in the guide of PvE and PvP builds; builds that work best for single combat and others that work better for teams, and even builds that work well against certain types of enemies.
Once you’re out in Tamriel, there would be no more time spent wandering the countryside, wondering where to go next, as the guide outlines where to go to find the quests that will maximize your reward for the time you put in. In addition to complete walkthroughs for every zone, quest, and dungeon, the guide showed me which locations are the best for grinding and how to do it once I got there. Not only does this got me more experience, gold, and better gear, but it sets me up to knock down the next quest that much more quickly. There is even a section that demonstrates skill rotations for each type of build. These had me carving through enemies like butter with a little bit of practice. No more getting stuck on tough bosses, either. Between the walkthroughs and skill rotations, I got into every tough fight prepared.
This guide answered every question I had about how to progress in ESO. It also answered some questions I didn’t even knew I had. For instance, all the crafting recipes for the most powerful weapons and armor sets are contained within, so I knew right away which ingredients to look for. In addition, there is a complete breakdown of the crafting system, including how to improve your existing equipment. This insured that no matter what level I was at, I had the tools I needed to create killer gear for any character build.
The guide doesn’t stop there. Once I hit level 50, there was a wealth of additional items and locations that were unlocked, and they are all listed here, complete with walkthoughs and shortcuts. Any MMORPG endgame is essentially a race to get the best gear and ESO is no exception. With this guide, I was able to get my hands on it quickly and painlessly.
Overall, this guide is well worth the cost. It provides what I feel is a necessary supplement to get the most out of your ESO experience. It’s available in PDF format and is written by professional gamers. Killer Guides also allows you to download any future updates of the guide for free as they become available. The layout is intuitive and easy to understand. I would recommend this manual to gamers of any age or skill level.
