When I play Checkers I really feel like playing Chess, but when I play Chess why aren't the rules like Backgammon?  lol?

I basically feel exactly the same way as the OP.

The questing is boring and the progression is slow while the combat gets stale rather quickly after you get your primary skills.

I never even bothered to activate my game after early access ended.

For as many people there are telling you you're playing wrong, you're not alone.  You'll see a lot more posts like this over the next 2-6 weeks.

The worse part is that people are praising the pvp like its some new unique experience. Its just like Gw2, except a player can become an emperor and you can capture elder scrolls. The elder scrolls buffs are pretty meaningless and the fortresses swap between factions way too much. There is no reason to stay behind and protect an asset, even if your guild claimed it because the game is all about the offense, except if there is a siege outside your gates.

The game is nothing but zerg vs zerg in most cases, unless you don't want to put effort towards the war campaign and gank some randoms doing a quest of dungeon. The pve is quite terrible and the questing is no different than anything else out there on the market. Just a bit more involved story line. Gaining Xp is a pain because you need to quest or its a petty amount if you kill players of mobs. Bugs galore, no real penalty for dying or any risk except for gear breaking.

 

The crafting is pretty good as is the combat, but at the same time; the combat could use some more work to make it feel more responsive. The graphics are very astounding and some of the best mmo graphics I've seen.

Some features are awesome like the werewolf/vampire and the skill tree and its any viability.

 

Game just is the same tedious boring thing however and I guarantee it once the new game rose-tinted glasses effect wear off, people will leave in droves. I knew it was not going to last long for me from the beta, but guild mates talked me into playing. Hope I am wrong and its gets much, much, better but you really can't change core mechanics of the game at this stage.

I've gotten level 31 with my main, got alts at 10 and 15 and some minor. And I don't feel like opening the game and start leveling anymore. It's a hassle. I feel the leveling takes too much time, and isn't as interesting. I mean, I've had fun until now. As a guy not really interesting in story, so I don't listen to a voiced book all day, I skip that part, and play the game. As I enjoyed the combat, the builds availiable. But all in all, I'm bored. I unsubbed, and are falling back to my old MMOs. And I don't think the market is really up for more sub-based games at this time.

I mean what should I do? When I think it's a hassle to even start up the game, thinking about all the grinding of quests. I didn't really get into the crafting even. I hate the fact that an item, and the whole item can be ruined in an attempt to make it better. So I've been researching and gathering mostly. Finding the inventory(bag and bankspace) also annyoing in the game. I want to save up for that faster horse, not spending it all on bag and bankspace.

The itemization isn't even that interesting. Damage, enchants with various damage and stuff is mostly it. Then the traits, more xp for that particular item, less costs upon dying? Boring. Set items is of course the thing, but why collect a set at level 30, when you get better invidual items a few quests/mobs later.

 

Anyone else feeling this? I'd liek tip on what to do in order to feel less bored with it. I'm in 2-3 playerguilds already.

Sounds to me like your ready to break out of the mold of these themepark games and are ready for a game where you make your own story and not follow some cheesy story on rails.

If your skipping past all quest nonsense its because you are probably tired of doing these same quest in every single MMO and you dont need a NPC talking to you to realize its still the same stupid quest.

 Actually TESO are not "the same stupid quest." Seriously have you even tried the game? I haven't run into a single fedex or kill 10 rats collect 20 bunny ears quest that are the main stay of pretty much every MMO before TESO. Also No offense to the OP but if he can't be bothered to read or listen to a quest its doubtful he'd be willing to put the effort into making his own story.   No games for everyone and that's cool its obvious you have decided the games not for you and its probably not for the OP either best of luck to the both of you in finding your dream game. Have Fun!

I am sorry but there are plenty of fedex quests in game which makes you run all over the map.

^This...

 

Get so tired of these posts. These threads. Same people asking for another MMO to waste their lives on only to back stab any good AAA MMO that tries to help.

 

ESO is no more boring... in fact it is FAR LESS boring....than ANY MMO out now. All MMOs are what the OP and others have said. Do this and that for a bit and you get bored.

 

I say....go outside. Stop playing MMOs. They will not change enough for you to be happy. Neither will women, TV shows, or life...I suppose

 Humm level caps 50 and the OP says he's made level 31 in the first what 7-14 days yet according to both of you the leveling is too slow?!?! I guess you wanted to be level 50 already in the first 2 weeks. I hear in WoW you can buy a almost max level character perhaps that would be more your speed?? Yes ESO is a slower paced game its not really about saying Yeah I beat the game in 2 weeks now I can raid till my eyes bleed for that blue drop. There's already a game out for people that want that experience. Please don't try and make every game like WoW just because that's your favorite play style. Surely there's enough easy to level be 50 in 2 weeks games out already or you can buy it that you don't need another?

I'm only playing the role chosen for me. Who you supposed to be?

Interesting how the ESO disagreement is much different than the GW2 disagreement when it launched.  GW2 was lots of hard defense, my favorite being your playing it wrong.  

But this thread is more forgiving. Thanking players for stopping by but don't let the door hit you on the way out.  

I'm in the latter camp.  The game is different and the type of change I'm currently enjoying. Options are good.

Man are you really kidding me? I've come across plenty. For instance one where you collect crocodile teeth, or one that has kill 50 Ogres. Or collect XYZ items and bring them back to me so I talk to you, so you can go and bring it back to some other npc character which you can't complete the quest because your inventory is CONSTANTLY full, so you have to delete some item.

Everyone is quarantined off, except for Cyrodil and you can't squabble with other factions if you manage to wipe their zerg with yours. People are just believing the hype too much. The only reason you level is so, you can go do pvp in Cydrodil, but its generally whomever can field the most players.

This is one of the things I am greatful of. One of my favorite things to do in a new MMO is to level and see all the zones. I hate when I get to max level in the first weeks of the games launch cause there goes half the fun right there.In most MMO's when you hit max level and still have zones you didn't complete they are irrelevant because instanced dungeons will be way more viable. It just sounds to me this isn't a game for you and probably didn't quite like elder scrolls much cause really this game feels like a watered down version to accommadate multiplayer.

First, arguing over whether people like the game or not is just silly. Different people like different things. I like what I like, you like what you like. Period, it is what it is.

That said, this is my opinion which no doubt some people won't share. I'm one of those people who enjoy leveling a character. I find doing quest to be fun even if they are fedex or kill 10 bears. Based on that ESO should be a dream come true for me.

Unfortunately, that really isn't the case. The problem is that I find the combat to be tedious and boring. In other MMOs I would go out of my way to kill mobs. In ESO I go out of my way to avoid combat. In most MMOs my first choice is the caster glass cannon type (but I usually end up with one of everything). So I started with a sorcerer. Maybe the other classes are different (if support ever gets their act together so I can log in again I will probably try them) but as a sorcerer I get to cast about 3 spells before I run out of magicka. So combat is basically push the same button 3 times and then auto attack. Then stand around waiting for magicka to regen so I can fight the next group.

I've gotten level 31 with my main, got alts at 10 and 15 and some minor. And I don't feel like opening the game and start leveling anymore. It's a hassle. I feel the leveling takes too much time, and isn't as interesting. I mean, I've had fun until now. As a guy not really interesting in story, so I don't listen to a voiced book all day, I skip that part, and play the game. As I enjoyed the combat, the builds availiable. But all in all, I'm bored. I unsubbed, and are falling back to my old MMOs. And I don't think the market is really up for more sub-based games at this time.

I mean what should I do? When I think it's a hassle to even start up the game, thinking about all the grinding of quests. I didn't really get into the crafting even. I hate the fact that an item, and the whole item can be ruined in an attempt to make it better. So I've been researching and gathering mostly. Finding the inventory(bag and bankspace) also annyoing in the game. I want to save up for that faster horse, not spending it all on bag and bankspace.

The itemization isn't even that interesting. Damage, enchants with various damage and stuff is mostly it. Then the traits, more xp for that particular item, less costs upon dying? Boring. Set items is of course the thing, but why collect a set at level 30, when you get better invidual items a few quests/mobs later.

 

Anyone else feeling this? I'd liek tip on what to do in order to feel less bored with it. I'm in 2-3 playerguilds already.

Sounds to me like your ready to break out of the mold of these themepark games and are ready for a game where you make your own story and not follow some cheesy story on rails.

If your skipping past all quest nonsense its because you are probably tired of doing these same quest in every single MMO and you dont need a NPC talking to you to realize its still the same stupid quest.

 Actually TESO are not "the same stupid quest." Seriously have you even tried the game? I haven't run into a single fedex or kill 10 rats collect 20 bunny ears quest that are the main stay of pretty much every MMO before TESO. Also No offense to the OP but if he can't be bothered to read or listen to a quest its doubtful he'd be willing to put the effort into making his own story.   No games for everyone and that's cool its obvious you have decided the games not for you and its probably not for the OP either best of luck to the both of you in finding your dream game. Have Fun!

Man are you really kidding me? I've come across plenty. For instance one where you collect crocodile teeth, or one that has kill 50 Ogres. Or collect XYZ items and bring them back to me so I talk to you, so you can go and bring it back to some other npc character which you can't complete the quest because your inventory is CONSTANTLY full, so you have to delete some item.

Everyone is quarantined off, except for Cyrodil and you can't squabble with other factions if you manage to wipe their zerg with yours. People are just believing the hype too much. The only reason you level is so, you can go do pvp in Cydrodil, but its generally whomever can field the most players.

I'm going to assume what you say...since I have yet to see any of those quests. The MAJORITY of quests I have done are way different than the MMO norm....but....

You are stretching the definition so much that you may as well skip RPGs AND MMOs. What the hell do you expect them to put in as quests? Just blows my mind when i see complaints like these....without offering an alternative.

Admittedly, I'm not very high level, but in the 21 levels I've played, I've not had a single "Kill X of Y" quest that I remember.  Not one.  Not sure if the guy you quoted experienced those quests at higher level, but as of right now, the quests in this game are some of the most refreshing that I've seen in an MMO.  And because they are all multi-faceted and contain several steps, the leveling is pretty slow since you don't see a large portion of the XP until the chain is completed.

Some people might think that's a bad thing.  Particularly the PvPers whose only goal is to get to level 50 as quickly as possible so they can have a few weeks of being the top dog in Cyrodil.  For me personally, I think it's a great thing.

Also, for the guy you quoted, I'd be interested to hear more examples of those generic quests than the two he listed.  Because I'm still waiting for my first generic quest, and I'm more than a third into the game.  Maybe it's a specific issue with a specific faction.  I don't know.

This is one of the things I am greatful of. One of my favorite things to do in a new MMO is to level and see all the zones. I hate when I get to max level in the first weeks of the games launch cause there goes half the fun right there.In most MMO's when you hit max level and still have zones you didn't complete they are irrelevant because instanced dungeons will be way more viable. It just sounds to me this isn't a game for you and probably didn't quite like elder scrolls much cause really this game feels like a watered down version to accommadate multiplayer.

OP is lvl 31 in 2 weeks (also has two alts he was leveling)... if this is slow leveling then i wonder what is fast leveling.

If you are skipping the story because you don't like it, or just aren't interested in stories in video games in general, then it's great that you unsubbed. If that is the case, then I just gotta ask. Whats wrong with you dude? It's an ELDER SCROLLS game, do you just not know what kind of franchise the Elder Scrolls IP  is???

This game does questing well. Very well. If you don't like that aspect of mmo's, perhaps mmo's in general aren't your thing. There are a lot of multi-player action games with optional or no story telling and no long progressions that may suit your interests better. Perhaps LoL, DOTA, Tribes, Star Craft 2, or Counter Strike are more your cup of tea? Just basing this off of what you've written. You seem like more of an instant gratification player.

I think the OP made the mistake of thinking he was playing an MMO, and instead realised he was playing a single-player MMO.

An easy mistake to make these days.

It is only a single player if you want it to be. Just because you dont start off, and it forces you to interact with other people. Such as SWG which forced players to seek out entertainers, and medics. There is also everquest which forced you to group in the start of its life. Eso, and all mmos i have played can be played with others if you prefer.

That would be like saying bars force you to bring people with you, or you are not allowed in. Or movie theater makes a  new policy that you cant see movies alone. Forcing people to do it your way, is not a good business model. Also trying to make a game that only one kind of people like to play, wouldent last very long. Look at mortal online, and all the other failed mmos, that you call real mmos, they arent very popular.

As I do like those older mmos, because it made players come up with their own group content, not every one wants to do that.  What do you want, a game with no quests, that all you do is go hunt mobs in groups? Well I seen a whole guild in ESO that wasent doing quests, or any of that. They were killing mobs over and over and leveling. So......................, you want them to force every one to do that, and it will be a mmo to you now?

I can say this, if they took the story out, and made all mobs so that you needed a group. The population of this game would be pretty low.

I find canned-story-on-rails (quests), no matter how many forks there are in the path, to be a total destruction of the ability to roleplay.

So dont do it. I have yet to see a large majority of people in these games do anything else. Exception is SWTOR, which had a few people I saw set up other things. You can  100 percent ignore the story line of this game, and still level. In fact unless your just hitting skip skip skip, questing isnt the fastest way to level, my level 11 has a play time of 1 day 3 hours and 47 mins. That is because i rather like elder scrolls lore.

The quests in this are just as good as those in skyrim, or oblvion, or even morrowind. So in all those games, all you did was run through the whole game till you maxed the level, and beat the game? Well as you can do that, because you find it fun. Why do you feel the need to force every one to your way, or the game is a story on rails and shitty. 

I dont think your a roleplayer at all, if you cant use your imagination and come up with your own stuff. In a game that has a story in place already.

He stated that he is skipping all the dialogue (which takes up a good amount of time) and seems to not like the crafting so he probably isn't going back to town to craft. I have a little over 60 hours in and I'm level 24 with woodworking and clothing at 20/50.
