Dan Dawkins, of CVG, put together a nifty little walkthrough that will help you understand the basics of ESO, along with some more details about the plot and general gameplay. The good news: there are no microtransactions (yay!), you're still in Tamriel, and it definitely still feels like a traditional Elder Scrolls game. The bad news? A really nasty Daedric Prince named Molag Bal is there to make life fairly difficult (and dangerous). That's part of the fun though, right?
Anyway, check out Dan's guide below, and let us know in the comments what you think about ESO-and if you have plans to become a subscriber.
