In most MMO games PvP is just a separate part that does not affect the game itself. But in Elder Scrolls Online it is implemented into general game story as Alliance War. Three alliances are fighting between each other and you are the member of one of them. Your impact into world PvP helps your faction to win Alliance War and to control Imperial City. When your faction controls the Imperial City it is possible to challenge Molag Bal and his armies.
are no Battlegrounds in ESO and
developers are not going to add them in future. All player vs. player fights take place in Cyrodiil only. On one hand,
that's not good, but on the other hand, such system allows to gather all PvP
fighters in one location.
is a huge province where all action of Alliance War takes place. Why Cyrodiil?
Because the Ruby Throne is situated here. The faction that controls the throne
rules in Tamriel.
Scrolls Online does not force you to fight against others and you will not have
to visit Ctrodiil in your quests. PvP is not an obligation and you can enjoy
PvE content in other provinces without necessity to protect yourself. Nobody
can attack you outside of Cyrodiil. There are no duels in the game and if you
wish to fight against other players you will have to go to the dedicated zone.
great thing about ESO is that Alliance War does not mean only fighting against
other players. There are many familiar towns where you will be able to take
different quests, there are public dungeons that you can visit, dark anchors
that you can destroy, Mages Guild’s books, resources for crafting, and
different places for exploration. You will meet a lot of NPCs who need your
fans of the Elder Scrolls series should instantly recognize the map, as PvP
actually takes place in Cyrodiil. The province is split up into three sections
for the three different Factions.
The map is quite large as it
encompasses all of Cyrodiil in one zone, unlike other parts of the Map, where
provinces are split into smaller zones. Travel around the map can be sped up
thanks to the Wayshrines which let you teleport to other shrines, so long as
your group has control of it and it is connected to the grid properly. Of
course mounts can also be used to speed up land travel across Cyrodiil.
