It hasn’t taken me long to fall in love with One Tamriel. This Elder Scrolls Online team has a distinct understanding of what makes this game an Elder Scrolls game, and One Tamriel really captures this understanding. I cannot wait to tell you about my experience in it so far. However, there are a couple of pieces of information that you’ll need to understand my perspective.
One Tamriel is ESO’s way of fast-tracking the leveling experience. Many MMOs create ways for its experienced players to game with the newer players: Some, like World of Warcraft, will do it with character boosters, and others, like Marvel Heroes, will do it with level-scaling. Still others will do it with both, like Star Wars: The Old Republic did. Elder Scrolls Online chose leveling-scaling to an extreme. As a new player in the One Tamriel update, you can literally go anywhere once you’ve passed the tutorial. I’ll get into more details in a bit.
I know that I’ve said this before, but I believe that to understand where I’m coming from I should reiterate that I play ESO solo for the most part. It’s not that I think that multiplayer is bad in the game; I just like to experience this particular game at my own pace and in my own way.
