IMO, it's very much an Elder Scrolls game. So it's a no-brainer if you're a fan of the series.

The first couple of areas are intended to ease players into the MMO concepts, so they're a bit brain dead. It gets much better between levels 10 and 20.

I've really been enjoying it, as has my Aussie friend who I play with who plays WoW (other than latency, and the yet to be officially supported status by nvidia)

Beware of this game. Overall, it's an amazing product on the strength of the artwork. Unfortunately, it seems to have lost a lot of subs and the devs appear to be in panic mode. Big changes have already happened with more in the pipeline. It is a bad time to start playing because the game will be quite a bit different in a month or two.

A part of the game you may enjoy today could be gone tomorrow.

Bumping this since I recently decided to get back into the game (as my main mmo). I'm currently playing the Orsinium expansion and its awesome. I'm a long time fan of the series and venturing into Orsinium is pretty cool! Will try to finish it and complete the Thief Guild expansion after so that I'm ready for the Dark Brotherhood expansion coming out early this summer.

Game is alive and kicking. Lots of people around and tons of stuff to do! Anyone else playing this?

Game also works flawlessly at 21:9 and it looks beautiful!

You wound me! 21:9... Just kidding, just jealous!

I still play and it is still one of my go-to MMORPGs that stays on my PC. I have tried too many different characters in too many factions so none are very high level. Right now I am focused on BDO but ESO is a keeper in my books. I have some crowns saved up for expansions from when I subbed so I will be adding Orsinium etc. when I'm ready.

The Orsinium expansion is awesome, especially from a lore perspective. I'm not really far into it but so far I'm impressed. They also upped the difficulty in that zone (Wrothgar) compared to the vanilla zones so it keeps you on your toes! I'm also looking forward to the Dark Brotherhood expansion, we'll be going back to the gold coast with the city of Kvatch from Oblivion!

Glad you are still enjoying BDO. I had fun playing it for a while but the end-game progression is too much of a time sink for me and I realized that I'm not a big fan of the gear progression system as well since it's based on RNG, which I find extremely frustrating. You can spend hours farming for 2-3 blackstones and then fail all of you attempts to upgrade your gear which not only waste the time you spent farming for the blackstones but makes you also loose max durability on the items you failed on which you then need to get into even more farming to get a same item drop to repair your max durability or farm for gold to buy one from the auctions. It's like a never ending spiral of farming!

Anyways, it's back to ESO for me. BDO was fun and I'd say that I got more than my $30 out of it, kinda the reason I tried it in the first place.
