With Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited already released, many new ESO account holders will be coming to the game. Veteran TESO account holders already know what to do in the game of course, but the newcomers will definitely need help. That is why we compiled three of the best, and rather unconventional, tips for newbies for today’s guide.
Play on your ESO Account as intended
Mods have always been part of the Elder Scrolls series. In Elder Scrolls Online, they come in the form of add-ons. While these greatly help Elder Scrolls Online account holders, it can actually be problematic for new players. As such, we recommend first time players to enjoy the game as is. Learning to play the game with all the add-ons will teach you to have a better feel of how the game functions. You’ll have better game intuition which is critical in chaotic situations where you don’t even have time to look at add-on outputs.
An additional benefit of not using add-ons early is you can be more selective of which ones you will use later on. In the end, did you decide to be a tank instead of DPS, then you’ll know you’re better off with an add-on that shows aggro. Then again, by that time, you already intuitively know how well you can keep aggro.
Find out how you want to play on your ESO Account
One of the things that make TESO great is how flexible its classes are. All roles can be played by all the classes. Newcomers should focus more on how they want to play first instead of looking for builds. It may sound time consuming, but making test characters to experience the various class and race combinations is important. Of course, once you have determine your style of play, then it’s time to look for a build, if you don’t come up with your own.
Craft with a fellow ESO Account holder
Crafting is integral to the game. It is also a very good way to have constant supply of gold and items. Unfortunately this only happens if you invest enough time and effort into crafting. For example, researching traits and the like alone can take months to complete. This is why new players should start early, ideally with a friend. This way they can trade items to deconstruct for the crafting professions they want to focus on. This will save them time and earn them some much needed gold.
