I'll pick it up and play if we have some hags going in, though I haven't been impressed in just the few hours I played (aside from the character customization). Tom and numerous people on the interwebs seem to say it gets better post level 5-10. Also, this is apparently another one of those MMOs where people are saying enjoy the journey, not the destination. To me that says, level slowly, we don't have an endgame :)

I've been in the last 4 beta weekends. It seems fun, but I don't know how long I would play it for. On the fence about buying it. If you do want to pre-order, you can get the digital version(standard or imperial edition) from gamefly for %20 off with the code FEB20OFF. Think that's the best deal currently available(green man gaming did recently have it for 25% off, but that is expired).

Honestly, at this point I don't expect any game we play to last beyond 3 months, if it even makes it that far. So if I choose to pickup and play a game with hags, that's my mindset going in.

Which realm? Daggerfall and Ebonheart seem interesting. I am getting the CE preorder so which one of you hags want to marry me? My primary playtime will be from 3pm to 7pm weekdays but weekends are dedicated to my babies so very limited play time during the weekends.

Scuttlebutt says currently the Aldmeri Dominion zones are the best ones in terms of being finished and whatnot. Most positive impressions were from folks that were in that alliance. Take that as you will.

But yes, we should agree on an alliance.

I'll go where ever.
You all have more experience with this game than I have since I have only played this thing for three days so I will defer to you all where you want to go.

I've played all 3 alliance areas in the beta. The Daggerfall Covenant area kind of sucked. Lots of bugged quests, seemed somewhat poorly designed. The Ebonheart Pact zone was ok and I liked that storyline the best. The Aldmeri Dominion was very well done.

Also, remember that if you pre-order you can play any race as any faction. So for pre-order people, the faction choice is just the zones you will be doing pve in.

Sounds like we are leaning towards The Aldmeri Dominion.

my vote is away from the aldmeri dominion, it's the most flushed out so far yes, but that means a butt ton of ppl will flock to it for that reason, also it's elves, so many none pre-orders will want to make "pretty" elves :/

I have very limited experience with beta so far so I will look to our more experienced players to make the wise decision.

For those that don't know yet, I will be joining LotD for this game. They haven't decided which faction we will be for release yet, but we'll be on Daggerfall Covenant for this beta weekend if you wish to roll the same way.
