ESO Gameplay Tips
- Instead of selling all unused items to vendors to free up space, you may want to deconstruct some to get experience and crafting materials.
- Since the game does not tie the players into a static role, it is wise to experiment and test out as many skill trees as possible.
- Execute heavy attacks to restore magicka and stamina.
- Attacking NPCs should be avoided at all costs unless you like to be chased by city guards. For good measure, sheath weapons in areas that have many NPCs.
- Take advantage of the wayshrines to travel quickly.
- One character can have different builds in the armory system, thus allowing quick changing.
- The Player Home system in The Elder Scrolls Online enables players to have their own houses. You can find these homes scattered in every zone of Tamriel and can be purchased by using Crowns or Gold.
- Missions can be given by random NPCs in the game, but they are not marked on the map so you must find them organically while exploring.
- If you have the financial capabilities, The Elder Scrolls Online Plus subscription service is worth trying because of its huge benefits such as monthly Crowns, all DLC and non-current chapters being unlocked, the Crafting Bag, etc.
- The world in The Elder Scrolls Online scales with the players, so do not hesitate in picking up quests.
- Loot everything that you see and sell them to get some money.
- Try to alternate between abilities and light attacks and you will eventually learn the Light Attack Weaving technique which provides a huge improvement to the DPS output.
- Try to explore the world of The Elder Scrolls Online as there are a lot of interesting things to be found. Do not worry about the levels since the game does not care how long you take to max them out.
