The Elder Scrolls Online Devs Field More PvP Questions in Latest AUA

Posted Mon, Sep 09, 2013 by Martuk

It’s time for another round of answers for community questions in the latest Ask Us Anything for The Elder Scrolls Online (TESO). In the latest AUA dubbed Variety Pack 7, the devs tackle several questions on TESO’s PvP, in-game guild stores, the function of Magelight, being emperor, and those useless little in-game achievements.

How will the Alliance Wars work with the three alliances? Let’s say the Ebonheart Pact controls a keep. Can the Aldmeri Dominion and the Daggerfall Covenant attack that same keep, at the same time? Or in the same scenario, let’s say I am from the Aldmeri Dominion. Can I just go around and start attacking the Daggerfall people who are attacking that keep, or are the confrontations capped to two alliances at any given time? – By Gabriel Feix

In that scenario, Aldmeri and Daggerfall forces can attack the keep at the same time, and like you said, if they wipe out the Ebonheart defenders, it’s up to the two Alliances left to battle it out between each other.  The Aldmeri attackers could choose to attack Daggerfall while assaulting the keep or just wait until the dust settles and attack whoever is left.  Another tactic could involve the Ebonheart force withdrawing from the keep, letting Aldmeri and Daggerfall fight each other, and then wiping out any remaining forces from those two fighting.  It’s very exciting what three sides in open warfare add to a fight, and you’ll see many tactics out there on the battlefields of Cyrodiil!

The team also hit on the balancing act of three-faction PvP, Keep winning conditions, and teased that the disappearance of the Dwemer will remain a clouded mystery in TESO. Read the full AMU for all the latest answers.
