OP  3/18/13 1:31:25 PM#1

Last week, members of our team were on hand with Zenimax developers to get a first hand look at several features in the forthcoming Elder Scrolls Online. Next we give our readers a great hands on preview of the Sorcerer class. Find out more about the magic wielder before heading to the comments.

Before we start to go through skills and statistics, remember that any class can use any weapon or wear any armor. This is very much an Elder Scrolls trait and holds true in the online game as well. So the team feels strongly that even though you do pick a class to play, they do not want characters defined by their classes. As you will see on the Interviews, most of the team continues to experiment with the best builds in the game. In playing a Sorcerer I ran around primarily with a sword and dagger and was able to fight, dodge, use weapon skills, and still cast my spells.

  As to the sorceror does this class get to absorb hostile magic/spells to power its spells like in the elder scrolls games or did they lose that and make the sorceror just another mages as the article doesn't mention it? It would be nice if they kept the classes at least alittle true to the early elder scroll games

I can't speak to the early games such as  daggerfall, but from Morrowin on the atronach birth symbol that allowed for stunted magicka and absorbing magicka up to the player's limit.

so not all mages absorbed magicka.

I would imagine the question is "is the Atronach birth symbol in the game and if so does it still retain its main properties from the elder scrolls games".

Remember, it's a trade off, if you have stunted magicka you have to rely upon potions to fill your mana if there are no magic attacks.

The flexibility for class skills sounds good.

The problem with games is the "gamers" that play them.

3/19/13 11:30:24 AM#9
Thanks for the write-up. I am glad to see this, it sounds like I will be able to set-up a very powerful "Hated-by-All" type of build.  *Evil Grin* Oh,the chaos I am going to cause, hahaha.

Did the Daedric/imp fight with you? If so, was it powerful? How about fluidity of combat? Was it smooth?

I'm excited to hear about weapon swapping.  Oh, the possibilities.

 

Did Garrett get to try other armor types?  What happens when putting on different armor?

Also, the skill/combat animations..were they "solid"? When u cast a spell, did it "feel" powerful? Rifts combat animations at launch felt clunky and weak for instance..

I hate to go there but WoWs combat animations feel solid. And the sounds "fit"...a rogues sap sound feels right, so to speak..

How about the running animations? Are they clunky like Warhammers? Stiff?

Sorry bout all the questions, real excited about this game..

All Will Be Well.....

Garrett says he was dual wielding a sword/dagger  and casting lightning attack.

Sounds good.

The only thing I am not so comfortable with is the weapon swapping.

I've been playing GW2 for the last little bit, focusing on an Ele right now and having a Mesmer and Guardian for alts.  The weapon skills and swapping really adds an interesting element to gameplay that takes a bit to get used to, but once you do its brilliant.  With TESO offering all weapons to all classes, I'm looking forward to seeing the potential builds people come up with.

and sounds like WoWs warlock with the 3 skill trees. Storm calling (destruction), dark magic (afliction), and summoning daedra (demonology).....

 

i was hoping mages were the same as in other TES games. Not liking the sound of this.... at all.

 

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg

Besides the overuse of the adjective "great" in the article, this was very informative (and yet still a tease!). Looking forward to more content on the game, especially as we better understand how classes differentiate roles and playstyles in the game.
