So, yeah, I changed my mind and subbed for one month of ESO. I did it after I played the Arbiter in Rift for a night, and realized to my horror that there was no way that I would be able to fill all of my gaming time between now and the WildStar launch with Rift tanking.
I sort of forgot to factor in my terror of tanking high-level dungeons in PUGs. There are only a handful of low-level dungeons that I’m comfortable with, so it won’t be very long before tanking becomes a hellish, stressful nightmare, regardless of what I think of the soul.
I suppose I could try the other new souls in 2.7, but they aren’t as interesting to me.
So I think I’m going to need ESO for a little while longer. And like I said before, I only need to play it for a handful of hours for it to be worth $15.
As of this writing I have reached Templar level 40. I have a love/hate relationship with my Templar Two-Hander build. Sometimes I find myself ridiculously out-matched, and other times I mow down enemies like a hot knife through butter. It’s a bit frustrating at times.
