Customizing a character when first entering a game is a lot of fun but it's not all that goes into making your ideal character. In our latest Elder Scroll Online column, we take a look at customization in the power and skill departments. See what you think before heading to the comments to tell us what you think.
If there’s one thing about Elder Scrolls Online that intrigues me the most, it’s the game’s character progression. ESO, like many titles before it, will ultimately be a theme park MMO experience. But unlike many games in the genre, character progression won’t suddenly become solely about gear treadmills at the level cap of fifty. I’m sure ESO will wind up having some gear to hunt down at the cap, complete with dungeons to run, tokens to gather, and so on. There’s a proven sect of gamers that love this sort of thing and who am I to deny them their preferred carrot on a stick? Me though? I’m all about adding to my character’s actual power, not playing dress up. I like to look cool just like the next guy, but I’d rather be learning some new abilities as opposed to chasing down some epic sword.
