The Elder Scrolls Online Devs Answer Another Variety Pack of Community Questions

Posted Mon, Oct 21, 2013 by Martuk

The Elder Scrolls Online (TESO) team collected another batch of 7 questions to answer in their 9th Ask Us Anything (AUA) Variety Pack. While a couple of the questions  that players would like to have more information only got a glancing response that didn’t really offer any new information, more specifically those relating to the functionality and curability of being a werewolf or vampire as well as Veteran Rewards, which are still in development. Zenimax did, however, offer a little information on the Alliance War campaigns.

Q: 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?

A: 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.”

You can read the rest in the latest TESO AUA.
