#eso new life festival!

I’m really enjoying the New Life Festival so far, the quests are very fun and so are the rewards.  There does need to be a couple of improvements, in my opinion, to make this run a bit more smoothly…  Firstly, I would prefer if I could pick up all 9 daily quests at the same…

#eso preparation for the February housing update

Anyone who’s a long time reader of this blog will know that I love a decent housing system in a game.  It’s not the reason I play MMOs but it’s something that I very much enjoy doing when I’m not dungeoning.  You can read the official article here and one by MMORPG.com here.   I’ve also…

26 bears

It is slow going in this cold.  I do seem to be acclimatising a little to the cold, but we still need to make frequent stops so I can thaw.  One such stop was in a cave, I felt quite guilty clearing out the bears from their den…  however I was close to freezing to…
