I have discovered the fun of playing Elder Scrolls Online with small groups of one or two friends in a co-op type mode on Discord (like co-op mode in Divinity: Original Sin II). Here's how it works:
Note: This only works on the desktop app on PC.
group call in Discord. I created a group of two people in my friend's list in Discord and called that group "
Ladies Night In".
Start call with your friends. Even if you do not have a mic, you can still start the call and just use the chat space below the call window. You can also use a webcam.
Make sure your ESO game is running.
Turn On Screen Share at the bottom of the screen.
Stream The Elder Scrolls Online. Discord will hook into your game and after some flickering you will be showing your game! Note: This may not work in fullscreen. If you get a black screen, try windowed or borderless windowed mode.
Back in game, you will see the group members in the call. I have mine set to the
lower left corner. (For this example, I am the only one in the call, normally there would be more icons there, one for each person in the call.)
Here's the game
streaming in Discord and open in the background.
Now here's the cool bit:
You can hear the volume of each other's games! So the way to play is that one person keeps their Discord game volume up. The others lowers their game volume in Discord and lower the game dialogue slider only. Then when you meet a quest giver, each of you click on the NPC at about the same time and you can hear the dialogue of one player (otherwise, you would get echoes – your game dialogue and the game dialogues of everyone else in the call) and each person clicks along with the person who is "driving" (responding to the NPC, reading the player response).
If you want to roleplay together with text or even voice, you can take this even further! Let's say you and your two friends are playing a healer, a mage and a warrior. The healer is "driving" in Discord. The healer starts the conversation with the quest-giver and responds to the NPC in character. The conversation continues with the warrior speaking up when the NPC says they need rats killed or the mage pipes in if the NPC mentions that the rats are resistant to magic or something. In character, you discuss taking the quest and decide to do so. Your party walks off discussing how you all will deal with the plague rat menace! Roleplaying together on your mics in the call!
Extra bonus to this method: If you want to show something in your inventory to others in the group, everyone can just alt-tab to the discord window and see your game as you are seeing it, then head back into more roleplay in game! So easy to share your in game roleplay experiences together and your out of character inventory or spells or whatever you want to show off.
Note: I know that you can share quests in game through the journal. But this takes the shared game experience to a whole 'nother level.
Here are my settings for voice/video calls:
Last tip: If you have three or more people on the call streaming your game, you can focus on just one caller's screen in Discord by right clicking and choosing "focus on this window" or words to that effect.
