Read answers to ESO questions sent in from TESO Junkies and Tamriel Foundry at elderscrollsonline.com. Here’s a snippet of this week’s feature:
How do you intend to make each Alliance War campaign feel persistent? Will campaigns last forever, or will they change from time to time, and will the enemies rotate?
Campaigns last for three months at a time, so you’ll find yourself running into familiar faces during them. Also note that you won’t get rotated out or switched to other campaigns unless you choose to; you’ll be able to stay in the same campaign for the entire time your character exists if you want! When a campaign ends, the only things that reset are its leaderboards and the score. Keeps, Scroll ownership, emperor status, and where you are in the world don’t get reset. It gives a great sense of persistence when only the scoring mechanics “reset.”
Watch our new Elder Scrolls Online video to get a taste of the diverse customization options you’ll have at your fingertips in the game.
Even though creating your character is just the first step on your adventure, it’s an important one. We want to give you the tools you need to realize the hero you’re already envisioning, and we’re excited to give you a peek at some of the options you’ll use to create the character you want to play in ESO. Take a look at our new video and share your thoughts on The Elder Scrolls Online Facebook page.
First, be sure to download the newest wallpaper for the game — showcasing art from The Crow’s Wood. As one of the more dangerous locales you’ll visit in the game, the foreboding image provides the perfect Halloween makeover for your desktop.
Elsewhere on the official site, the ESO team has announced the winner of the the ESO Emote Creation Contest.

The newest ‘Ask Us Anything‘ for The Elder Scrolls Online is now online. Visit the official site to get answers about weapons, inventory items, PvP, and more.
Here’s a sampling…
Will there be items or spells players can obtain that will cast an appearance illusion over them, making, say, a Breton look like an Argonian or a frost troll for a limited amount of time?
Yes. We have a disguise mechanic in the game, which allows you to equip an item that changes your appearance. This can be used for costuming purposes or, for instance, to infiltrate the camp of an enemy. There are also spells that change your appearance for a limited amount of time—these can change your appearance in more drastic ways than disguises can.
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.
