It’s been a couple of weeks since we last checked in with Grabnadz, the orc mage-tank. When we wrote our last journal entry we’d just hit level 15, and were on our way out of the first zone and into the wider world. Having just dinged 30, I think it’s a good time to make some notes on what’s working in TESO so far and what just really isn’t.

Playing as an orc named ‘Grabnadz’ has been my fond MMO tradition ever since the days of Warhammer Online, and so it was — after enjoying my time as a lizardman in the beta — I immediately jumped at the chance to recreate my favourite green-skinned murderer in the world of Tamriel. Grabnadz is usually a tank of some kind, but this time around I decided to see just how far I could push TESO’s weapon/class flexibility by becoming some sort of mage-tank.

The Elder Scrolls Online launches this week, and despite some very positive feedback from beta tests, Zenimax Online’s decision to use a subscription model instead of being free-to-play still gives prospective players pause.
We caught up with Bethesda’s Global VP of Marketing and PR, Pete Hines, who explained to us that the decision was reached mutually by Bethesda and Zenimax together.
