Worth 1000 Words

As promised, ESO PICTURES!

Coldharbor, where you start out in the game, an interesting place, if you enjoy torture, cannibalism, pain and insanity. I don’t and neither did a lot of people, which is why we all decided to escape! That and you know to prevent Molag Bal from merging his realm with ours, or so I was told.  

Molag_001

Meet Molag Bal likes long walks on the beach, picnics by the lava shores in Oblivion and the enslavement of all mortals on Nirn as he attempts to merge the mortal plan with Oblivion.

ChildOfBone_001

This is a Child of Bone. I guess Molag Bal fired the Giant snake lady for letting too many people leave Oblivion. He is the new Gate Guardian, it is good work experience for when Zuul retires.

Before going any further, I would like to introduce my three new characters that were used to take the vast majority of the screenshots in this post.

Meet the Scylla triplets. Corn and raised in Cyrodiil. One of these lovely women is the 9 times great grandmother of Zander, but which one? Much like how many licks it takes to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop, the world may never know.

Aldmeri Dominion

Everyone and their mother seems to have images of this area, and found it fascinating and beautiful and I can see that I can, but I still don’t like them…Am I biased? You’re damn right I am! But I did take some interesting pictures, sort of.

What is not to like about the calmness of Khenarthi Roost? Besides the murder plot and assassination.

Prince Naemon seems to have some issues with his sister. I think it is because she wears that armor so much better than he does! Oh, and he feels he should have been king not her.

She is smart, down to earth, funny, has an interesting story involving a school marm a purple dress and a Kahjiit named Raz. Not to mention being cute as hell. Oh and she looks so much better in that armor than her brother! If I were to be in the Aldmeri Dominion it would only to be for her...don't judge me!

Ebonheart Pact

Okay, I won’t lie. I didn’t take many pictures of this area. I wanted to but I figured most of it looked like Skyrim. But I did get some good shots, in my opinion at least. It is a very nostalgic area and I was just having so much fun.

Ah, Skyrim never looked better...without mods...

Giant mushrooms, Mountainous terrain, colorful flora, yep no denying it! This is SPARTA...wait no it is most definitely Morrowind!

A Mud house in Morrowind. What? It is like the Tardis. It is larger on the inside than it looks on the outside, and it has better heating and air than a mushroom.

What would a trip to Morrowind be without seeing Ash Mountain. Yeah I don't know if it is Ash Mountain or not but it looks damn cool so meh.

Daggerfall Covenant

Without a doubt one of my favorite areas in the game. Everyone else can keep saying how pretty the Summerset Isles are, and it is, but I think areas in Daggerfall that are just down right gorgeous. You start off in a little Oasis area and you get this sense of pirate adventure, and that is basically what you have! Now, who doesn’t like pirate adventure? If you just raised your hand so help me I will Gibbs you!

Sentinel Docks, where all your pirate dreams become reality!

Meet Jakarn. You bust him out of jail and he becomes your best friend. He also makes Brynjolf look like an awkward, pimple faced teenager. Simply put Jakarn is what Brynjolf aspires to! Hell he is what I aspire to... I can feel you judging me again.

So familiar! There was supposed to be a vampire fight in here but she never spawned. I think Xavier frightened her away.

Thus concludes the pictures I took for ESO. I hope you all enjoyed them. Overall I have to say ESO is graphically the best MMO I have ever seen. I suck at taking screenshots but ESO is just so beautiful it is hard even for me to have a really bad screenshot. But if you want to see some really nice shots be sure to check out Wilvarin, she has some amazing screenshots.

    Great screenshots! I didn’t participate in this last beta because I’m boycotting ESO but dang it looks good graphically! I don’t know if you have checked Elspeths comment on her post about Xavier but I’m starting my own Skyrim story! I’ve only got around 600 words in my prologue and around 200 in my first chapter but they’re coming along, and may I say it’s pretty stressful to do.

    Hell yeah, ESO is just so pretty. X33

  3. Also, I need to change up my header image. Do you have any skyrim scenery shots I can have? Maybe something from the rift? Something with not quite so much snow?

    You call THAT “suck at taking screenshots”?!?! These are GREAT screenshots and your comments make them even greater! Don’t even doubt it!

  5. You take better screenshots than you think. These were awesome, and your comments only made them better. I got a little teary-eyed when you threatened a Gibbsing. It made me so happy…
