The Curious Turtle – How much damage should Siege do?

‘The Curious Turtle’ is a new bi-weekly column I’m starting where I discuss anything ‘Elder Scrolls Online’! My aim is to do at least two articles a month. ‘Can’t these bloody milk drinkers handle a bit of extra siege damage? It’s called PURGE! Put it on your bar for god’s sake!’ It was certainly an interesting week in Cyrodiil after Wrathstone launched. The Devs managed to bug out siege so that not only were Siege Shields useless but Siege was basically doing the equivalent of Oblivion Damage (unavoidable damage). I mean it really wasn’t that bad initially when I was surfing with pugs healing them. We’d get hit with …

PvP Improvements ESO Needs in 2019

It ain’t no secret that PvP, especially Cyrodiil, is in dire need of attention in Elder Scrolls Online. Cyrodiil is plagued with performance issues and desperately needs some quality of life improvements. Here’s my list of the major PvP related things that needs fixing.

All of these issues seem to get worse after each update and it affects everyone to some extent regardless of how good …

A Look Back at 2018 – SWTOR Edition

The expansion drought continues for The Old Republic. It’s been over two years since 5.0 came out. 2018 gave us a few Updates with some story, some PvP and even some Operations content. I haven’t really made much of a secret of the fact I haven’t played SWTOR that much throughout 2018. I dabbled in the game here and there around Game Updates and did a fair bit of PTS testing for Game Update 5.9.2. But beyond that, I haven’t really done much throughout 2018. The game overall continues to be marred by a horrible gearing system (especially for PvP) …
