I've only been playing ESO for about 3 weeks, and I wanted to share an experience that made me appreciate the game even more. I've always heard how most players in the ESO community (I play on NA server, I don't know about the weirdos in the EU 🙂 … but having played other MMO's you think- "Ya, I don't buy that.." but suddenly I found myself in Orcrest group dungeon in Norther Elsweyr as a level 8 Breton sorcerer. Don't ask me how my dumb ass ended up there at such a low level, but needless to say, I got stuck. I think I was supposed to be collecting items to complete some quest, but damnit if every undead and bug and harpy in there was too powerful for me. I spent a good amount of time cowering behind a wall, kicking myself for not paying attention to the place being a group area. After some very long minutes, I saw a player come in and start ploughing through all those monsters that I couldn't beat. He eventually made it to where I was, after some amazing fighting and I turned around embarrassed and opened my inventory menu (since the emote for that is your character looking through a bag or something) when I turned back around he was still there and he asked me what I was doing. I thought about walking off without responding, but his character looked like some greek god, with silver pants and an amazing helmet, I decided fu** it- and I told him I was stuck. To my amazement he asked what quest I was working on and offered to follow and get me through it without me dying! "What???" was my initial thought – "This guy would do that for me??" Sure as shit he did, and as I hid behind him like a child as he destroyed everything in his path , it gave me a sense of wonder that I haven't felt very often!! To wrap this up, maybe anticlimactically- I eventually had to log off once i got to the underground sewers because my 1 year old had woke up in the middle of the night crying, but I thanked him, and he wished me good luck. Next day when I got back in the game, there I was in the sewers again. "Well God damn!" I thought, figuring that unless someone else came along, i'd never finish the quest.. When I went forward I noticed a player sitting in a chair next to a waterfall in the open cavern. It wasn't until a few minutes later as I was standing next to him (cause there was only one chair) enjoying the surroundings that a giant green blob (that I later learned was a world boss) appeared, and the player who had been sitting, stood up slowly and began walking to it, then ran at it and after a few impressive minutes, had it beat. I know I was being an a**hole – but when it died I did run up and loot it, when I looked around to see where the player had gone- I found him sitting back down in the chair waiting again… watching me, but not saying anything- not ridiculing me for taking what was not mine. In fact, he looked peaceful as hell. I never did get to see him fight again because I left, and I did in fact find more players to piggyback off of and finish the quest, and while i finally made it out of Orcrest, feeling worn out mentally and irritated at myself for even going in there, I realized that somehow I had gone from level 8 to level 11 in there… that I had all this amazing monster loot and that while i didn't deserve any of it- I had it, not because of anything I did, but because of the amazing players who came along and made getting stuck an amazing experience. So… I tip my hat to ESO and all the kind and amazing people in the community. This place feels like home! (But not Orcrest, that place is a dangerous sh*thole of despair)
