All about lore: Read the newest ESO ‘Ask Us Anything’

The latest ESO ‘Ask Us Everything‘ focuses primarily on lore. Here’s an excerpt…

The oldest structure in Tamriel, the Adamantine Tower (or Direnni Tower) is in High Rock. Are we going to be able to visit this building, and if so, how are you going to represent it to us? – By Hampton D. Evans

From the shores of the Iliac Bay you can see the Adamantine Tower rising from the heights of Balfiera Island. Can you visit it? Time will tell.

On the Storefront

Take to the slopes of Skyrim with our new line of snowboards from Never Summer Industries. In addition to the Skyrim themed board, aptly titled “Alduin’s Bane“, the collection includes limited-edition boards for Fallout (“Vault 101“), DOOM (“The Forgotten Son of Phobos“), and The Elder Scrolls Online (“Ebonheart“).

Too early for snow? Take a look at what else is new this week…

ESO ‘Ask Us Anything’

Lucky you. The 7th ESO “Ask Us Anything” Variety Pack is up at ElderScrollsOnline.com. Questions cover PvP, achievements, guilds, and more. Here’s a sampling…

Can you explain the guild stores a bit more? Do I have to be a member of a guild to buy from it or is it a public store in which a guild of crafters and merchants offer their products? Will I be able to set my own prices or would this be regulated by the guild leaders? – By John Connor

You will need to be a member of a guild to use its guild store; right now, there isn’t a public storefront for them. If you have permission (configurable by the guild leader) to sell items on the guild store, you’ll be able to set your own prices.
