Sometimes, our favourite things collide in weird and wonderful ways, and today is one of those days. At the time of writing, YouTube sensation Jenna Marbles‘ latest video, featuring her house in The Elder Scrolls Online, is #18 on the platform’s Gaming trending list and bringing the game to her 20M followers. While Jenna, whose real name is Jenna Mourey, and her partner Julien Solomita share a hugely popular Twitch account, she doesn’t often make game-specific content for her YouTube channel and is far better known for her comedy content despite being an avid gamer.
Mourey has spoken in several videos about her love of ESO, most notably in her comedy I’m Addicted to Elder Scrolls video in 2015, but this is the first serious ESO video she’s recorded for her YouTube audience; she gives viewers a guided tour of her very impressive Elsweyr crib, showcasing the housing mechanics of ESO as she fixes her table settings and shows off her crafting stations.
Mourey’s enthusiasm is infectious as her character eats homemade dishes, entertains a guest to her in-game home, and swims under a gorgeous waterfall. We particularly enjoyed her wardrobe tour, showcasing some of the wonderful costumes you can collect in the game. She chatted about her non-combat pets, the range of housing available in the game and the gold value of some of her most precious housing items – and she’s got some pretty rare stuff! And no, it wasn’t gifted to her by Bethsoft; in fact, hilariously, Bethsoft is in her comments trying to send her swag.
Now known for wholesome dog content and goofy “beautuber” videos, Mourey started her YouTube channel started in 2010 with content that then featured comical rants or her adorable chihuahua Marbles; her popularity has exploded from there. We wanna hear more about her experience with ESO, particularly surrounding PvE and lore since she says she personally finds those things most appealing!
