We’re not kidding about that title. The latest set of answers for The Elder Scrolls Online’s Ask Me Anything is full of lore. Spilling over with lore. Its lore cup runneth over. Do you want to know how old an elf has to be before he’s actually old? 200-300 years is old. Want to know if there will be any Dragonborn running around a la Skyrim? Nope, and shouts are a thing of legend. It’s all the lore you’ve wanted and were clearly not afraid to ask about.
There are some other answers in the mix as well. Players will have to guess about the abilities of their opponents in PvP to some extent, since the armor system will not allow you to guess at abilities by appearance. Players can also expect to find puzzles in the game rather than pure combat encounters, although no details are given. So while you’ll find the most meat if you’re looking for lore, even more system-focused players will find some relevant answers in the full set.
Why cry about it? Seriously, they didn’t have to do anything. But they thought for once that maybe they would do an AUA that was related to lore. Wait for E3 to come out in about a month and then you’ll find more valuable info. If anything, this aua was done for fun, and to appeal to the many TES roleplayers. Yet the fact that they did it, doesn’t effect you in any way…
“We have new lore books (by the scad) and old favorites from previous TES games – including both volumes of “The Lusty Argonian Maid.””
So, uh, did the human NPC that wrote that story in Morrowind fall into a time vortex and end up in the second era or something?
