Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset added a new hour of music and 7,224 lines of dialogue

You might be finding yourself enchanted with Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset’s pretty visuals, but what about the delight that your ears are sampling?

ZeniMax gave props to its audio team that handled the music, voices, and sounds of the recent expansion, saying that its work was “designed to wholly immerse you in the home of the High Elves.” Zeroing in on Summerset’s magical ambience was of key importance for the group, with the music leaning on wind instruments to distinguish itself from the other releases.

And don’t forget the extensive dialogue! “We have 7,224 lines of unique dialog in Summerset,” says Voice-Over Supervisor Becky Ichnoski. “For this chapter specifically, we spent a total of 108 hours in the studios recording, making up 37 individual sessions with a total of 35 different voice actors.”

Love the music in this game and do appreciate the added tracks.

I thought so too, but the other day I made the conscious decision to disable music, because in the old zones it’s repetitive and annoying. It may be new in Morrowind and Summerset, but everywhere else it’s the same old, same old and I’m sick of leaving Stormhaven for Alik’r and the musolic stays the same.

In WoW there is one music for Elwynn Forest, one for Westfall and one for Duskwood.

They’ve added new music to Auridon, and one of the music devs has authority to extend the introduction of new music to the other base game zones in between his other jobs – so it is something that’s being worked on.

I turn off the music, too. What I meant to say was that I like the new tracks you can hear npcs playing in taverns and such. There are some new lute pieces for example. It’s nice to hear those and I think their really well done and add a nice atmosphere.

I turned off the music, which I enjoyed in the vanilla zones, because of Craglorn. I hate the Craglorn music. It’s epic and overdramatic and doesn’t really fit the mood when I’m there crafting or whatever. It’s just too heavy handed and over the top. Also, some of the other zones have music I find just depressing, like Wrothgar, so turned it off.

And how many items locked away in a lootbox?

Beats me, how ever I used my $15 Crown stipend from subbing to get I wanted from the crate by selling back the shit I didn’t want in the first place (fair system if you ask me), no RNG involved and basically got the crates for free because I only sub for the endless inventory and DLCs.

I fail to see what your so bugged out about, you remind me of me when I was pissed off at Rift.

It’s his pet peeve. He sees ESO and he’s like ‘Crown Crates’.

Although it is a pretty fair system indeed and it lacks any P2W (though they’re getting there slowly with their ‘instant research’ scrolls and the likes), I do find these crates offer items which kill my immersion. Such a beautiful world with such eye for detail and then a Pink panther runs by, surrounded by blue and red orbs, riding a mechanical spider, being followed by a pet monkey, dressed in fluorescent armour.
Sorry, the crates might be fair and a good way to increase revenue, but the contents of them should be toned down a lot. Just look at the Skyrim or Morrowind Nexus. Among the top 100 mods 75% are immersion-increasing and ZoS is doing the exact opposite. We’re no riding ethereal mounts? Really?!

I have many strange mounts, mainly from the free crates, ranging from guars to bears, cats mechanical, spider-wotsits ect ect.

I prefer my horsie. My Argonian suits the riding guar though.

And the majority of the players are there for the story.

This game spends so much on fluff and doesn’t improve on any gameplay.

1st
Story, yes I think story has its place in mmos but it’s usually a one and done kind of content. 48565 voice lines for something that will be skipped by the majority of players isn’t really worth the effort.

2nd
The most updated content is the shop. This is far from the best mmo unless you like dressing your dolls and designing your doll house. Otherwise once you’ve played one zone you’ve played them all. No real gameplay change or anything since thieves guild

3rd
For the love of god fix the combat animations, spell effects and loading times. The animations suck and always have unless you enjoy watching boney uncoordinated nerds swing a sword like it’s 30lbs too heavy.
