Equipment is one of the most interesting features of elder scrolls online. It has enough complexity to make it interesting and simple enough for players to have fun with it. It is a well balance feature of elder scrolls online.
Like a classic MMORPG, equipment influences a character a lot. 30% of a character is influenced by armor, 50% of class influence, 15% of personality and 5% for the character’s name.
Referring to a character’s name, we can discern if this particular player has potential. Players who name their character with numbers, most of the time, they don’t have a potential. Players who use simple names are often potentially good players. Compare: ‘swordmaster123’ to ‘HappyMeal’, I’d personally pick HappyMeal as the better player than swordmaster123.
Elder Scrolls Online Armor Sets Basic
There are two types of attacks in elder scrolls online: Spell damage and weapon damage. Spell damage is the basis of how much a character’s magicka-based attack and healing will deal. Weapon damage is the counter part of spell damage, stamina based skills and healing abilities.
Wherein, physical weapon users will deal a lot of damage against characters who use spell resistance elder scrolls online armor sets as spell resistance does not induce resistance against physical attacks. The same goes with physical armor users. If they receive an attack against spell attacks, it is going to deal tons of damage.
Critical is purely RNG. There are certain equipment that could increase the chance of dealing critical hits. However, there are also armors that could reduce the damage of critical hits which makes equipment well balanced.
Weapon damage is strong against users who wear spell resistance elder scrolls online armor and vice versa. In conclusion, it is a good idea to have two elder scrolls online armor sets, one for physical resistance and spell resistance.
