It’s Not Dangerous to Go Alone
The first thing a solo player needs to know about The Elder Scrolls Online is that it’s loaded with quests. Seriously, so many quests. And these are not the kind of fetch-quests or collect-a-thons you might expect from massively multiplayer role-playing games; these are the kind of interesting, complex, provocative – and fully voiced – quests you’d expect from an Elder Scrolls game. There’s an overarching Main Quest that sends you all over Tamriel. There’s a lengthy primary quest just for Summerset (and in fact for each of the game’s Chapters). There are Guild Quests that allow you to advance in factions like the Fighters Guild or the Mages Guild, unlocking new abilities along the way. And in between, there are more side quests than you can shake an Inferno Staff at, ranging from the political to the comical to the heart-wrenching.
And even if you’re not out questing, there’s plenty for a lone player to do. Consider the crafting system, which lets you make weapons, armor, clothing, potions, food, beverages, furniture – and now, with the arrival of Summerset, even jewelry. You could also save up to buy a house in-game, furnish it with your own creations, and even buy yourself your very own crafting stations to create all of the above. In fact, in addition to the Golden Gryphon Garret room, with Summerset you can acquire the brand-new and delightfully picturesque Alinor Crest Townhome and a selection of intricate High Elf-themed furnishings to fill it with!
