If you’ve ever tried, you know the size, and scope of ESO is absolutely massive. Due to the wide variety of things that can grab a player’s attention, many truly useful features can go unnoticed.
It’s also in vain that some things that seem obvious to veteran players can be obscure to newcomers. Therefore, I will point out some features that every ESO player needs to know to help as many players as possible.
Our first feature is in the help menu of all places. The developers have put together a wealth of information in Tutorials area to help players old and new learn more about the game.
Chapter and DLC sections really only include descriptions of the relevant content. If you don’t like the current chapter, or you’re just looking for something a little different, I definitely recommend checking out Elsweyr Chapter introduction.
I want to highlight a couple of settings in the game section. First off, you can change the color of enemy ground effects, as I’ve found this to be very helpful for fast-paced content. And another modification I would suggest is switching your Ground Abilities to Quick Cast.
As you can see, when it’s set to automatic, you have to press the button twice to cast the ability. Changing this setting will automatically project your AOE into the area of your reticle, which really makes combat feel more fluid and intuitive.
If you like to be social, you can use HUD chat display settings to display text chat on screen. Also, if you’re in multiple guilds, you can change the text color of each guild’s chat to easily distinguish them. In general, the more information you have in ESO, the better off you will be.
Additionally, you can add your Attribute and Ability bars to your display and activate front and rear Ability bars timers. This helps it keep up with your resources and improves your AOE and DOT uptime.
Next, you can turn on the combat text to see how much damage your skills are doing. The final setting I recommend you turn on is the buffs and debuffs options. By keeping up with the buffs you give yourself and the debuffs you place on enemies, you can really improve your overall damage per second. These option changes are certainly powerful tools that can help any player get more out of every aspect of ESO.
Endeavors system is actually a daily reward system that allows players to earn rewards by completing various tasks and goals. It launches with Waking Flame DLC in September 2021.
Each day, you can complete specific tasks in exchange for a specified amount of Seals of Endeavor and a small amount of ESO Gold or experience. These tasks include activities such as killing monsters, completing quests, crafting items, or using specific abilities. There are five efforts per day, but you can only earn rewards from three of them.
In addition, you can complete three weekly Endeavors events that include wider requirements and also award more Seals of Endeavor.
These Seals of Endeavor can be used to obtain various rewards from Endeavors store, such as Mounts, Skins, Non-Combat Pets, Costumes, and more.
This reward system is impressive because you can basically passively complete Endeavors just by playing the game. While it will take quite a while to accumulate enough currency, efforts are essentially a way to earn Crown Crate Rewards for free. Therefore, I definitely recommend taking advantage of them as often as possible.
No matter what role you play in ESO, make sure you get Mundus Stones early on your adventure. Because the buffs you get from these Stones are some of the most important buffs in the game.
There are 13 Mundus Stones scattered around Tamriel, each providing a unique bonus to your character. I recommend taking the first Stones you come across first, then swapping it in for a more useful reward when you get the chance.
If you’re a member of a well-known Guild, you might get this opportunity sooner. Because most well-stocked Guild Houses will have all 13 Mundus Stones in one place for you to use.
That’s all my advice for all ESO players who want to improve their gaming experience. Hope these tips help you get off to a better start.
