MISC Quick Tips: Vampire and Werewolf never buy the skill line from the Crown store, also no reason to ‘buy’ a bite in zone chat. Ask in Guild, or zone chat, most players will give you a bite for free. If you feel like tipping the player, it’s encouraged but not necessary. Pack Merchants You can buy extra Inventory from Pack Merchants with gold Combat settings In Gameplay Settings, under Combat Cues, make sure the colors for combat will be noticeable Research Traits Start to research as soon as you can, final traits of research take along time so start as soon as you can. Also, start by researching the traits you are most interested in, when you craft you can only craft those traits you already know and crafted sets depend on how many traits you have researched Pugs (Player Unknown Groups) you will meet some very helpful, friendly players and on the other hand, you will meet some very toxic players as well.
It’s okay to just play the way you want, you don’t have to minmax, you don’t have to do group content. You truly can play the way you want. End game trials is probably the only place you can’t or Vet DLC Dungeon
If you go to Cyrodiil, especially if you are PVE focused you will die, alot. (especially during events)
