The game has changed loads over the past year so it should all be new and exciting..
What's changed? Last time I tried it I levelled up to about 12 or so, but got bored. I think the problem is that I did all of the first two zone quests in all three factions, so starting again is a lot of repetition.

Well, they have removed veteran levels so no more grinding from vr1 to vr16, you are scaled up to max level in all zones so it's always a challenge (the zones are all at max), they brought in dueling, player housing, more group content in Craglorn, some really nasty hard trials, loads of new armour sets and costumes etc, crown crates (beware of these).
PVP is a bit broken at the moment though due to issues with unkillable tanks, proc sets that are over powered, heavy armour bonuses which are totally unbalanced etc etc etc.
I think most people are waiting for Morrowind to be honest, but there are also regular festivals such as the current Jesters festival, plus 4 man group battlefields are on the way.
I'm sure there have been more changes though.

I think I remember reading about that - does that mean that, at any level, you can just wander around from zone to zone and always find stuff to do? Or does it only apply to 'end game' (whatever that looks like now)?

Yes, it's called One Tamriel, you can go wherever you want now and play with people from other factions at any level.

Also if you want to level up quick there are various places in Craglorn that are good, Kevduit shows the Spellscar one in the video below, it's the best one I think

Meh, powerleveling. :p Last time I tried to get back into it, I installed a bunch of the RP-related mods to remove things like map markers, compass icons, and instant text. Was fun for a while - maybe I'll try that again...

I guess power levelling is good for champion points and alternative characters otherwise levelling through natural gameplay can be painfully slow and repetitive.
There is a new 3 year anniversary event on at the moment which gives a 100% boost to xp :)

I've got an ESO account and my main character is a healer/tank with 200CP. Still enjoying it, got fed up up with group dungeons because of rudeness and rushing. There's no time to enjoy the quest and atmosphere (and some of the dungeons are awesome) with all the rushing from spawn to spawn. Guess I'm just old :D

At the moment I've done the main quest, the covenant and "cadwells silver" in the dominion, been collecting all covenant and dominion skyshards. Now I'm going back over the covenant to get the adventurer and explorer achievements, and level up some CP so I can go back to do some group dungeons again.

Account is @mojopixy and my character is called Wylim. If anyone has an account and feels like a bit of old-school slow-time in-character RP, hit me up :)

hello... I left the game in June as it took over my life.. like completely.. I love it too much.
I always hated doing dungeons and spent most of my time in PVP.. because it rocks.. I wish I could tell you the tales of the things we did there, I have never had so much fun in all my life.. seriously, i spent 18 months in the game, living and breathing it to the extent that my real life completely fell apart, but it was totally worth it for the memories.
The only thing I can compare it to it the Rutger Hauer 'Tears in the Rain' speech from Bladerunner

Im now battling the urge to go back in because its coming up to autumn and halloween and the game has a distinctly gothic feel (the Daggerfall Covenant did anyway) and I miss it.

I won't go back though.. :(

I uploaded some gameplay footage of one of the sorcs I was levelling before leaving the game..

Can you understand why I loved this game soo much?? :D:D
The visual stuff at the end was a temporary environment bug.

It wasn't so good looking around the time I left the game :D
This is how Craglorn looked at that time

If anyone plays on the NA server, look me up (username in game @Epona222) - I run a casual trading/social/play guild on the NA server, Ghost Sea Trading Co - I guess it's successful because we've had a trader every week for more than 2 years and have play events and we're welcoming and inclusive.

Would be delighted to see any urbanites in game.

Hey Epona! I just got an invite to the Summerset PTS which I can play on my Mac, so I'll make an NA account sometime this week and hopefully see you soon :)

I finally made a character on the pts and now it's down.. I was testing the Warden and Psijic skill Ines, they seem to work quite well together.
I'm also amazed at how strong the Warden is in PvP, it seems to have way more resistance than other classes, my health bar was only being tickled by the guards...

I've never managed to get to grips with playing a warden, but honestly there is nothing like getting multiple cliffracers to the face in PvP
 

moon

Happy Happy Jo Wonderland
Yes, but I may need to do some PVE now, I developed a taste for Masters and Asylum weapons on the PTS :)

What class do you mostly play?

Was it normal Spindle I or vet RoM though? :D
I have no idea, the group ran through so fast I barely had time to look around. :D Was some sewer location, I think.

I'm really getting into this a lot more this time around. Unlocked Psijic and all the guild skill lines, got all the crafting certifications (including jewelcrafting), and picked up the three free inn room housing locations. I think having access to all the DLC really helps; I skipped all the starting zone stuff (with all the quest chains I'd done a few times in previous years) and went straight to Wrothgar. Level 20 now, which is the furthest I've ever got. :)
