OP  7/15/13 6:02:48 PM#1

The Elder Scrolls Online team has posted the latest in their 'Ask Me Anything' series. This time, the topic is dungeons and players submitted their burning questions to the team for answering.

Q: In the previous Elder Scrolls games, we always had the ability to wander into a cave, old fort, or sunken boat to explore, plunder, and pillage. With ESO being an MMO, will we still have the ability to do this in a solo-encounter type situation where we don't run into any other players, or will we be seeing other players and having to wait for enemies/loot to spawn, or will these all only be group encounters? – by Brett S.

A: The Elder Scrolls Online is set up to be a fluid experience. As you wander the landscape you’ll encounter caves, forts, tombs, dungeons, and etc. Certain rare locales will just be for solo players, and some dungeons are meant for groups made only of people you choose to go in with. Most locales, however, will be accessible by everyone. Some might be too dangerous for you because of your current level, but you can always come back when you are more powerful if you want to complete them solo. We recommend grabbing a friend or grouping up with a stranger if it seems too tough, though, because that’s all part of the fun.

Read the rest on the Elder Scrolls Online site.

So basicly evrthing in ESO in instanced like GW2 ?
Open world is for questing only and heavely zoned so you cannot see your (enemy factions)
World PvP is also in a instanced zone like GW2 ?

In a time and age where people love to play games like Skyrim with vast masses of open terrain and events, they choose the path of WoW / GW2......
meh seems i wont be touching it, unless its something realy realy special, might stick to skyrim and download a few mods :P

Nope they have open world dungeons as well and no dungeon scaling, meaning you can go back to a dungeon when you are higher level and blitz the place, great for multi boxing a lower leveling character.

I feel like people do not know how to read or something. I don't see how anyone gets "Everything is instanced" from what it says here. Someone will need to point this out for me, because what i read is "Most locales, however, will be accessible by everyone."
 
Also, even if most where instanced, it's not really a big deal, not all of them will be as it's been stated 100s of times. But apparently peoples memories are not very good these days.

"in a solo-encounter type situation"

 How exciting, instancing in a MMO that tries to create a single player experience!  Based on a single player IP  which bares no resemblance  to the things its fan base has come to love about the IP.  All that was needed to be done to make an Elders Scroll MMO is leave the open sandbox world and replace the NPC's and their roles with real people to fill them. Darkfall 1 came within the ball park that it can be done.

Most had a loading screen when you enter or leave a dungeon. Is that not an instance? If not they sure felt like instances.

I remember a fair few times If I got overwhelmed by bandits I could just run and leave the dungeon and they wouldn't follow me out. If it wasn't instanced wouldn't they follow me out of the dungeon?

 

Also in regards to the red in Mothanos post, why can't instances in ESO be the size of Skyrim/Cyrodil? I don't see why you can't have a huge instanced area the size of past ES games to explore in.

All the people here who are complaining would be complaining no matter what was said. That is what I honestly think. Just a bunch of trolls who can't be happy about anything.

"Most locales, however, will be accessible by everyone. Some might be too dangerous for you because of your current level, but you can always come back when you are more powerful if you want to complete them solo. We recommend grabbing a friend or grouping up with a stranger if it seems too tough, though, because that’s all part of the fun."

 

If these open world "locales", including forts and dungeons that are not used as instances, are really large (full explorable dungeon size), dangerous (need a group), and play an important role in leveling (ie: it is difficult to level fast without utilizing them), then I can see this game being fun.

If these "locales" are small, generally easy, and hardly needed to level or offer little reward, then people will mostly skip them. If people can level faster with quests to kill wolves, then people will generally choose that. Not you and I, but the general population seems to always pick the fastest and easiest method through MMO's.

The big problem I see is based on what it says there, you can just skip them and come back when you are a higher level, meaning you don't need to do the open world dungeons when leveling, so people will just power-level past on whatever is the fastest method to level and then come back and clear them when they are easy to solo.

I really do not see that as an issue really. With how the reward system works in ESO, I don't think the rewards for these locales will be set, meaning each player will get different rewards. This pretty much means you will not know till you go there and do the dungeon. Course I very well could be wrong about this. *shrugs*

We are also talking about an Elder scrolls game here. It's going to have a very large Elder Scrolls player base, which are used to the non easy route.
