HUGE show today! We cover the updates on Elder Scrolls Online’s base game patch for Thieves Guild, plus where all the TES fans hang out and talk online, these days and share in the excitement for ZOS acknowledging “Heart’s Day” in ESO! In the second half’s “Rumor’s Section”, we take 4 features of Morrowind and ask ourselves if we want to see them continue on into TES VI. We round off the show with your emails, tons of lore-based fun and this week’s mod from “The Crafting Table”: “Paladin Armor Set and Artifacts” by Frank Family from Skyrim Nexus!

Trion just released a Primalist preview video that has taken the Rift community by storm. Come hear what the Reforged team and our energetic chat room participants had to say about it. Those wondering what’s coming down the pipe for Planar crafting will be interested to hear Kendo’s breakdown of the new recipes out on the PTS, and Enikki helps us all get in touch with our Shalistiri roots with an overview of Bahmi history and a story of one particularly ‘active’ Bahmi warrior! And cool changes are coming to Rift Reforged — stay right to the end to hear what’s up !
Dear Greatfather Frost,
When you hear Liiska start the podcast tonight, she is going to sound like she’s losing her mind — but it’s only me. I’m stuck here in Margle Palace, and it is the middle of Summerfest —- but the lag here is so bad that I figured I should start activating the Ghar Subconscious Communication Network now. Hopefully, my shenanigans won’t interfere too much with the rest of the team. I hear that TG is covering a proper Bard build (at last!), Kendo should be happier now that he has lots of new recipes (still on the PTS, mind you) to talk about, and Eni has been researching the legend of the Kitsune. I love that mount! I begged and pleaded (politely) when it was on the Rift store, but Liiska did not hear me — so we don’t have one. That’s why I’m trying something different today — maybe there’s still time to save Fae Yule!
Hope you are well.
Love, Liiska’s Id
So … just say you want to start winning warfronts, instead of just piling up kills… but you don’t usually run with a pre-made. Impossible dream? Nope – catch up with Enemy Foode as he kicks off his examination of each Rift warfront – how they work and tips for knocking off those objectives. This week, Foode’s laser beam focuses on Black Garden & Library of the Runemasters. And Liiska is here to ask Foode all those ‘noob’ questions that you are (ahem) far too experienced to need to ask — so don’t worry, no one will ever know what you didn’t know! Along with all this great new awesomeness, we have our regular awesomeness – TG’s Spec This looks at a great Shaman build, we’ve got some brilliant pieces from the Forums, highlights from Hotfix and PTS News, and a scarey story about one of Alsbeth’s ancestors – all right here! Let’s get started!
We’re back after a week away and OMG is there a lot to talk about! Big happenings out on the PTS are providing a giant peek into what we’re getting with patch 3.2, and Kendo and TG have details! TG has another Battle Bard spec from Grim Gaming for all you rogue pvp’ers, and along with the regular Hotfix notes, we’ve got some special Rift April Fool’s treats — one from the community and one from Trion! (And yes, that WAS a squirrel with a horn taped to its head — Nightmare Tide notwithstanding, you were NOT hallucinating!)
Yeaaahhh booooyyy!! This week we discuss some very exciting news: VR14 characters in Elder Scrolls Online will receive 70 (not 30) Champion Points upon release of Update 6, on the live servers! This is great news if you’re a VR14 and we explain exactly how this will effect your character, how you can prepare for it, and the nuts and bolts of Zenimax’s conversion rate. We also take a few minutes to shine the spotlight on “Beyond Skyrim”, an ambitious mod for Skyrim that aims to add ALL of Tamriel’s provinces into the Skyrim engine…all without forcing you to reroll a new character! Your tweets, emails, and our “Naked Khajiit Run” in Auridon flesh out this episode. Enjoy!
Evarwyn and Rob are joined by Elder Scrolls Online guide and build creator and strategist, Jake, from Deltia’s Gaming! They sit down to discuss Update 5 on the Public Test Server and the announced changes coming to the game that this ambitious new update will bring! Get excited folks, because some of the most requested changes to the game are inbound. We analyze them for you on this episode.
