Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset’s 12-player trial includes choices and divisions

Just because Summerset looks like a vacation paradise doesn’t mean that it’s free from worries and troubles. For starters, the city of Cloudrest is under siege and its flying knight protectors are missing. That’s when players will jump into Elder Scrolls Online’s newest 12-person trial to see if they can free the town from a sinister force trying to control it.

This past weekend, ZeniMax talked about the latest raid coming to the game with this month’s expansion. Cloudrest includes a lot of choices, such as allowing teams to choose which order to fight the sub-bosses and main boss (a choice, the studio said, which will have ramifications in the storyline). Additionally, players will have to split up in boss fights between the regular and shadow realities and fight the enemy in both simultaneously.

“We’ve received a lot of feedback from our players that they really love bosses like the Maw of Lorkhaj’s Rakkhat, where some players in your group have compartmentalized roles,” said Dungeon Lead Mike Finnigan. “With Cloudrest, we wanted to take that idea and expand it to give everybody in the group unique roles that they need to perform in order to succeed.”

Last time I did a dungeon with choices that affect how the dungeon played out, other members were kicking people out for not going the ‘fast path’.

This article is about a trial not about a dungeon. You shouldn’t run trials with random people anyway.

@feleran doesn’t really change my point. When it comes to a faster way and a slower way, some groups will kick you for not going the faster way. Some times it is routes, some times it is specs, some time it is stats… there will always be those group leaders.

I think some devs forget how terrible people really can be even though it sounds great on paper lol.
