Elder Scrolls Online will make you a master of time itself

Time manipulation is a tricky thing to do in a multiplayer live environment, but every so often, an MMO attempts to do just that. Elder Scrolls Online is taking a swing at it with Summerset’s Psijic Order skill line.

It’s not quite a new class, but this skill line is pretty exciting nevertheless. There are active and passive skills for all types of playstyles, with more of an emphasis on defenses than anything else. Those characters that master the skill line will be able to stop time, imbue their weapons with light damage, speed up, and even rewind the past few moments.

“With the Psijic Order skill line, we wanted players to feel like they’re super-powerful sages that can control time,” said Combat Lead Eric Wrobel. “When building the new skill line, our goal was to include something for everyone. With healing, tanking, damaging, and some general utility abilities.”

Since when was there time magic? Maybe I am forgetting something but I thought the psijic order was pretty much just a bunch of researchers that more or less developed the mysticism tree of magic. ESO really likes trashing the elder scrolls lore.. I hope they remove it from canon.

So I guess your going to forget in Skyrim that a psijic monk stop time while he talking to you at the college. There always got be players out there who have no idea what the lore is but get mad when they think the is lore broken. This is Elderscrolls community in a nutshell. They always get mad at Zos for adding lore when it comes from Bethesda thenselves. It is canon people move along.

You mean the one that paralyzes the other’s around the character or the one that projected themselves? Cuz as far as I know, they didn’t freeze time, they froze the people which could just be seen as a mass paralysis spell which is supported by multiple games.

I am still waiting for my favorite Skyrim weapon skill tree to come about,

The one where you made a bound weapons out of magic. Bring that back to ESO.

I think everyone needs to get off this time stuff, Hollywood, entertainment industry, game industry, everyone…
It’s getting worse than the fantasy stuff in the 2000’s…

Damn, looks like some tanky abilities/skills in there!

Crushing Weapon + Deep Thoughts + Concentrated Barrier…could be pretty potent.

I actually much prefer new skill lines to new classes in ESO, personally. No issues with debating rolling a new character, you get to fold all the new fun stuff into your existing character.

Agree with you. I’d also like them to add a new weapon (one handed and focus or something like that)
