Unlike the other games in the Elder Scroll series, the skills in Elder Scrolls Online have a more MMORPG feel. In particular, ESO account holders will notice that skill lines have Ultimate abilities and that skills can be morphed. While this change from the traditional skill isn’t all bad, it can be confusing for new Elder Scrolls Online account holders. This guide aims to help players get used to these advanced skill principles.
Advanced skills for more ESO gold
Skills in the game are behave differently and are powered up somewhat differently than in the old Elder Scrolls games. While constant use of Elder Scrolls Online armor and Elder Scrolls Online weapons still contribute to the improvement of a skill, they can now be morphed. Skill lines now also have Ultimates, which are powerful skills that represent a skill line. Most important of all, skills now require skill points. Elder Scrolls Online gold hunters need to budget these if they wish to make the most out of their character.
Skill morphing and ESO gold
Skills in ESO can be customized to better fit a specific character build. This customization is referred to as morphing. At a certain skill level, an ability can be morphed into one of two sub-skills. This offer two new upgraded versions of the skills. Typically, one will have an raw increase in stats, while the other will have a beneficial effect added.
Morphing a skill does not require Elder Scrolls Online items or TESO gold. Note however that morphing requires a skill point. Once morphed, an ability can no longer be returned to normal unless a respec is bought.
Ultimate skills for your ESO gold hunter
Skill lines often have an Ultimate skill associated with it. This ability is often a very powerful representation of the skill line. These function similar to Active skills, but use a dedicated resource aptly named Ultimate. This resource builds up during combat and is usually completely drained upon the use of an Ultimate skill. Note that Ultimates can also be morphed.
