In Which Marwyth Lands on Bleakrock Isle
I’d been meaning to fire up another alt in Elder Scrolls Online, and as of this post, I’m finally doing it! Welcome to the start of the adventures of Marwyth of the Dunmer, my second ESO alt.
In Which Gyllerah Has Another Reset
Followup on my earlier post lamenting breaking my Default build for my ESO character–because, as I expect any ESO player with an Armory Station can sympathize with, it happened again. This time to my Healer build.
Which was incredibly fucking frustrating, because I’d been getting such great help from my Guild about recommendations for how to set up to be as helpful a healer as possible for running trials.
So, I had to go to the trouble to fix everything again. This time, though, I took some steps to recover from this for the inevitable next time I screw up which build I’m pointing at in the Armory Station.
In Which Gyllerah Has an Accidental Reset
Super short post just to clear my queue and get Gyllerah caught up. Most of this is just briefly summarizing writ and antiquities activity–but also, there’s a cautionary tale about why it’s vital, and I mean vital, to be damned sure of what build you’re on before you save stuff at your Armory station!
In Which Gyllerah Saves Western Skyrim
Another large Gyllerah post, hitting the milestone of her 200th session! Main RP action in this one is a side plot in Coldharbour featuring the Everfull Flagon, and more significant action in Western Skyrim as I finish up the primary plot there.
Also, I got add-ons active on the Steam Deck, and re-ran the White-Gold Tower!
In Which Gyllerah Saves the Aldmeri Dominion and Quests into Coldharbour
This is a major point in Gyllerah’s playthrough, because, just shy of 200 total sessions with her, I finally hit the last big stretch of the game’s Main Quest. Which means: I finally made it into Coldharbour and began assembling an army to take on Molag Bal.
But before I did that, I also finished off the Aldmeri Dominion and the Mages Guild plots, which I found quite satisfying!
In Which Gyllerah Quests in Malabal Tor, in Reaper’s March, and for the Fighters Guild
Lots of action in this, featuring moving the plot along in Western Skyrim; running trials with my Guild for the first time; running a side plot at Karnwasten on Summerset; saving the Green Lady and witnessing her union with the Silvenar; coming to the aid of two sisters in Reaper’s March, one of whom is destined to be the next Mane of the Khajiit; liberating Arenthia from invaders; helping some Bosmer brewers out with a drunken mammoth problem; and last but not least, concluding the Fighters Guild quest and discovering who’d slain the previous Guildmaster.
In Which Gyllerah Hunts Witches, the Hound, and Daedra in the White-Gold Tower
I’ve been leaning very heavily on RP in recent Gyllerah sessions, which is why there’s been a lot more to report! And which is why I’ve been lagging behind on getting her posts up, because it takes a while to compose them.
Lots of action here, featuring moving the Fighters Guild, Western Skyrim, and Aldmeri Dominion plots further along; and also, running my very first group dungeon, the White-Gold Tower in the Imperial City! So now I’ve got Spell Power Cure and Winter’s Respite gear to play with, and I can experiment with a healer-focused build on Gyllerah now.
In Which Gyllerah Defeats the Shade of Naemon and Hunts for Witches
Another burst of Gyllerah action, primarily finishing up the Greenshade section of the Aldmeri Dominion plot, and moving on into Malabal Tor; and also, beginning the hunt for witches as part of the quests in Western Skyrim! Which, satisfyingly, pairs me up again with Lyris Titanborn for adventure!
In Which Gyllerah Ventures into Cyrodiil
And now, time to catch up on what Gyllerah’s been doing! I’ve got a lot to report on so it’ll have to be spread out across a couple of posts. In this one, main action was finishing up the Argonian artifacts plot that’s the prologue for the Murkmire DLC, and then my first visit into Cyrodiil–PVP territory!
In Which Gyllerah Saves the King of Daggerfall
A lot of festival-related activity in these sessions, as most of this play was during the Jester’s Festival. But it also saw the beginning of the Anniversary Event for 2023 as well!
Also, I’ve started making progress with Master Writs, and practicing learning how to use a Restoration Staff, with an eventual goal of being a better healer/support type person for group scenarios.
Last but not least, stumbled into a plot that let me save Casimir, the King of Daggerfall, from assassins! And all because of a dog named Giblets.
