That feel when you catch your character in a blink animation but don’t realize it until you go to post the picture. Oh well.. you get sleepytime Belghast… or maybe he is just frustrated that he has to kill another batch of cultists to close yet another anchor. Last night I continued on with my journeys in Deshaan and wrapped up the main story. There are still a few areas of the map that I have not explored and turned the black icon to white signifying that I have completed it. So I fully expect to spend a night doing some basic mop of of quests but unfortunately that likely will not be tonight. Tonight is the night I am meeting friends to play Magic the Gathering at a local restaurant… that I am hoping is not terribly busy. There is a group that meets there to play Dominos… and I am hoping that it is going to be perfectly copacetic to sit there and play MTG.
One of the weirdest things about Elder Scrolls Online is the way all of the screenshots end up being my character off to one side and then showing off what is happening in the background. I mean I could take a shot of my backside… but this always seemed like a better option to turn and face the virtual camera. There is always the option of zooming in to first person and stowing my weapons to take a screenshot, but I rarely actually do that. Instead I do this sorta selfie mode where I have my character to one side of the screen and a pretty picture going on in the background. In a way it feels more touristy than the standard screenshot faire, like “here is me at this place” sort of feel that I dig. So much of this game is about me wandering around and finding interesting sights… and because of that especially it just sorta fits.
I have really enjoyed Deshaan as a zone goes with its main story arc, but I will say about the time I wrap up a zone… I am more than ready to move on past it. I honestly thought Eastmarch was next in the sequence but it seems like the quest chain is leading me to go start Shadowfen and check out some disturbance happening at Stormhold. I am wondering if they shifted the order of things at some point or if I just don’t have a main story quest for the entirety of Eastmarch. Whatever the case I need to sort out what my next destination will be, and I am still several steps away from The Rift where the Belghast namesake exists. There is a driving force in me that wants to get past the Ebonheart content so that I can in good conscience start the DLC areas… beginning with I believe Orsinium. Still having an awful lot of fun and I guess my goal is to make a significant dent in the game before Battle for Azeroth inevitably and begrudgingly pulls me elsewhere.
