Elder Scrolls Online
I’m working through the Mages guild and Fighter’s Guild Quest Lines, finally. The Mages Guild quests dealing with Sheogorath are just terrible. I kind of didn’t mind him as a cat (adorable) in Elsweyr, but these, gack. He is so annoying. Those icky eyes. His sense of humor leaves everything to be desired. I don’t like his flunky, either. As much as I loved Oblivion, I hated the Shivering Isles Expansion. I wish the quests here and in the Fighter’s Quild were like the ones in Oblivion. It would make more sense for them to send people out to find antiquities, or complete contracts for the guild.
The Fighter’s Guild at least has a mystery to solve.

Just another week and we’re in! No more you can only get to level 15, do not pass go, don’t knock, cause you can’t come in. Logging in will be a blowout. The Stress test logins were really to give you practice staring at not much for two hours, nothing else. They didn’t expect all the population on Herod, though, and had to issue cranky warnings so everyone there can prepare for LoginOfDoom.
Once things settle down, it should be amazing. All the warnings from jaded types to Retail Babies, ha, we’ll be just fine, thanks.
Meanwhile, in the dungeons this week…
I’m wondering if some returning folks are playing through dungeons to get a feel for the game again.
In Halls of Lightning, the tank was pulling everything right off and people died right off. Somehow he pulled General Bjarngrim all the way back to the dungeon entrance where he killed killed killed everyone over and over. A few people slunk out the entrance. He finally went away, and back in we went. He blamed everything on the healer, and tried to boot her. It didn’t pass. She died to one of his big pulls at about the mid point and he just kept going. “Does he not know I died? she said. He replied she wasn’t effective and wouldn’t be missed. I was having a bad day anyways, so I told him it wasn’t the healer, it was that he was a terrible tank. Then I left. I’m questing away when I notice pink text in the chat. “Great DPS, bro”. I am no Bro, thanks.
Later, another tank is pulling, pulling. The healer dies. Couldn’t save herself or anyone else because “I was busy trying to heal Tanky Boi.”
Oh Tanky Boi (very roughly to the tune of Danny Boy)
Oh Tanky Boi…the mobs, the mobs are calling
From dungeon start, to dungeon’s end
Healer’s mana’s gone, and all the players are falling
It’s you, it’s you must stop pulling
and we must stay alive.
