The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

Tips for The Elder Scrolls Online: The Vestige's Guide

4. Grind in public dungeons.
 
This is actually a problem I have with the game, but so long as Zenimax doesn't have a patch for it, who am I to say not to exploit this right now? If you've wandered into a public dungeon, denoted by a hatchet on the map, you may have found a gaggle of players surrounding the spawn point for a boss.
 
As long as you deal a small amount of damage to the boss, you should get credit for defeating one (along with everyone else) and earn the experience points as well as the loot drop. Eventually, you'll get at least one copy of the enemy's entire loot table, and probably multiple copies of some items. Every time another person wanders into the boss area, it should send a request to the server to have the boss respawn within another couple of minutes.
 
So if you're in need for better equipment or just grinding, then have at it, Hoss, and kill away.


 
5. Read every book and bookshelf even if you don't actually read them.
 
We know you don't have the time to read every lorebook and scroll that comes your way. However, please take the time at the very least to pick them all up. Merely perusing a book can level up your skills without any extra effort on your part. How convenient.
 
Lorebooks, which usually glow blue, are scattered throughout Tamriel on benches and in small encampments. Reading one will add it to the lore library in your journal's main menu so you can peruse them later if you wish, but their primary benefit is increasing your rank with the Mages Guild. So long as you take a few minutes to explore the map, you'll earn enough experience and good-will (I suppose?) to level the Mages Guild skill line just about as frequently as the Fighter's Guild (which levels due to how many Daedra and undead you vanquish).


 
6. Use banks to store materials for easier crafting.
 
This isn't stated anywhere, and I know several players at Level 30 who were surprised that they didn't know this, but any materials stored at the bank can actually be used for crafting. This way, you can free up your precious inventory space for more loot. However, bank space is limited so stick with one crafting profession at first, especially if you're into provisioning as much as I am (there's way too many ingredients out there).
 
Also, don't bother with storing blacksmithing and clothing materials that allow you to craft armor and weapons in different styles. Just pick one style and sell the rest. The cost for buying one of these items from the weaponsmith is low anyway.
