Saturday Night

It is early Saturday evening in my corner of the world. A raiding guild-event will commence momentarily.

Enjoy these three songs while I prep for battle!

Three Sunday Songs

The song “Ace of Spades” was playing on Ozzy’s Boneyard the other day. It inspired me to add it to this trio of tunes about gambling, taking risks and taking chances. Life isn’t lived online, in a bubble or in an echo-chamber.

Life happens in the real world. Get out there and see it. Experience it.

What are you so afraid of?

5 on Friday: Character Class Themes

When I had an in-game guild site up I’d done a little musical tribute to the four character classes in The Elder Scrolls Online: Templars, Nightblades, Sorcerers, and Dragonknights. With the addition of the Warden class, introduced with the Morrowind / Vvardenfell chapter, I decided to update this post for my scheduled “Five on Friday.”

Another new class might be introduced soon, as many have been screaming for it and discussing it in forums. I think a necromancer class is fitting and goes along with the Elder Scrolls storyline and the accompanying lore. Unfortunately, the devs seem more inclined to listen to their favourites and their followers and those people aren’t really playing the game. It has been obvious of late, with all of the glitches and scheduling issues ZoS has been wrestling with since the beginning of the year. “Never mix business with pleasure.” That is a rule which many forget or deliberately break, and it shows.

First, the Templars: they are the healers, radiating the light of life on their comrades – but don’t mistake them for gentle, pious souls! They will bring down the power of the heavens upon their enemies, crushing them with the gravity of the sun. Another skill they possess is referred to by all in the game as the “Jebus Beam,” and it is potent against many! The Beatles’ song “Here Comes the Sun” was the best tribute I could think of.

Next, the Nightblades: the assassins, cloaked in the shadows. They stealthily creep up on opponents unawares, thrusting knives or swords that weaken the enemy’s stamina and armour. Some sap the very life-force from foes, taking it for themselves or sharing it with group members before sidling off to scout the battlefield by themselves. I felt that “Midnight Blue” by Louise Tucker was most fitting.

Now, the Sorcerers: the mages are versatile, wielding blades, bows, or staves. Their powers are formidable when they utilize the destructive power of flame, frost, or storm, given the appropriate staff, then summon a familiar from dark depths to fight at their side. Beware of the storm-callers! They dish out quite a bit of damage when equipped with proper mage-robes, too. I figured that “Symphony of Destruction” by Megadeth was the perfect tribute to the versatile might of the sorcerer.

The Wardens: they are the Druidic class and have control over aspects of nature, including animals, plants, and the element of ice. They can summon screeching raptors from the sky or send ravaging beetles tunneling underground to target enemies. Insect swarms can be sent to harry and sting, and a spiritual bear is often seen at the Warden’s side. Plants are used to heal and protect your allies, while ice can be used in all three ways: damage, healing, and protection. My Warden is an ice-mistress, so the song “Cold as Ice” by Foreigner came to mind as a dedication to the druids.

Last, but certainly not least, the Dragonknights: my favourite class in-game! Fearless warriors with the heart of a dragon, they charge first into battle wreathed in flame, using the very stones of the earth to smash foes down – or protect comrades with a shield of spinning rocks. They flex their wings, holding enemies fast with mighty talons, or lashing them into submission with a whip of flame. Dragonknights dominate with whips and chains, so the song “Hands of Death (Burn Baby Burn)” is ideal!
