OP  2/26/13 7:16:16 PM#1

I have looked at the videos and screenshots on this site, and ESO certainly features a beautiful world.

 

After reading that the ESO combat system will be similar to Skyrim, I bought Skyrim to try it out.

 

I didn't get very far.

 

To my great dismay, my character was horribly ugly.  So ugly that as a Wood Elf, one of my choices was how much dirt I wanted on my face.  Um, none?

 

I saw no attractive female character options in Skyrim.

 

So is this how it's going to be?  I have to play an ugly character?  Because that's a non-starter for me.  There are too many games where I don't have to be ugly.  

 

Does anyone have a link to a publiclly available screenshot where there are attractive female ESO player characters?

Elves arent supposed to be pretty in The Elder Scrolls series of games.

Want pretty? Play a Breton

 

However, in ESO elves and the other races will be as pretty as a plastic Hollywood Starlet

ESO is not Skyrim. The models will not look the same.

 

Was I the only one confused how we jumped from the combat being similar to ugly character models in Skyrim?

Well, it's all about individuals roleplaying experience. I'd still give him the option to make a pretty character rather than letting him run around waving his penis. *coughmortalonlinecough*

 No, they are not making TESO for TES fans, they are making it for DaoC fans and needed a more popular IP...makes sense? Shouldnt. Characters will be nice a pretty for the dumbed down MMO audience.

So you set out to try Skyrim's combat, on which you heard ESO's combat would be based.  But you got turned off by Skyrim's character models, on which you have NOT heard ESO's models would be based, and that has now turned you away from ESO?  There's no transitive property at work here.

I don't know what the ESO models will look like.  The screens I see usually have them covered in armor.  That's why I asked a question.

You are missing out on a great experience if you are new to the Elder Scroll series.

I'm terribly sorry, but you are only doing it to yourself mate

So you're more worried about what they look like without armor on?

 

I think you may be looking for a different game. These are not the droids you're looking for..move along..

Maybe not. Watch the ESO cinematic trailer at some point. It made me flip a table for the minor offense of not putting red eyes on the dark elf. Sure this pretty human pointy ears dealio is all fine and good for fat chicks and manboys, but then so is Tera. If you get my hint.

The answer is yes you will look pretty.  The game is in beta so I assume they only released very limited gear models for characters and their videos are heavly male populated but I found one for you that should clear things up. 

Watch this video in HD and stop it at 8:02.  You will see what looks like an elf maybe?  No clue but besides the helmet on her you can tell she has a well figured body and a pretty face.  I assume like every game you can turn helmet models off and you will be running around looking like a goddess in no time.  Also I am sure their will be a ton of pretty outfits that give more stlye to females then the gritty male armor.

Hope that helps.

Cya in ESO.

   Haha,

    I got a good chuckle out of this.

 

 I too am drawn by attractive asteticly pleaseing models. Not so much to turn down a game, but it's defeintly something I like.

 

Come on, don't you want just a little bit of dirt on your face? Like right there on the tip of your nose?!

 

LOL>

Happy gaming.

I'm actually a bit disappointed at how pretty the elves seem to be in TESO. TES elves are supposed to be ugly and weird. The elves in TESO look like they came from Middle-Earth.

Elves are meant to be ugly in ES. Also you barely see your own character, youll be in first person mode for 99% of the game.

There i must oppose ... I played Skyrim 90% of time in 3rr person. 1st person only for bow.

 

But i almost never played elves in TES they look damn ugly ... but it is why they are quite unique. I will be dissapointed if they go for girly elves, like everyone out there.

If the game is good is what should be important. You will spend most of the time seeing the back of the head anyway. I call bs on some of the reasoning behind the race lock crap but end of the day its the feel and flow of the game that is what really matters. For me it will be how responsive and smooth the controls and combat are, if they nail that I say just put a helmet on that ugly head and have fun... :)

I just hope argonians retain their own unattractiveness.  

 

Elves have always been ugly and I loved it.  Made TES a much darker ad grittier fantasy world.  My first character back in Morrowind was a dark elf and he was a badass.  He wasn't a pretty fairy looking creature but a rugged and savage adventurer. I love these worlds and hope they do stick to an uglier theme (doubtful to appease the masses but its what I'd like, good thing they don't care about TES fans opinions).

Try rolling a Nord Female.  I didnt think they were made out to be "ugly".  Actually, i thought that the Nord females can look rather nice. Obviously, Khajit (cat People) are made to look like your pet Frisky.  Dark Elves are supposed to look forbidding.  Wood elves are kinda ugly.  Redguard are the "African" looking race, and they can be made to look very nice too.  I think the problem is, you chose a race that no matter what you tweak, the character is going to look ugly.  

 

Good luck
