The Damsels Game, Episode 156, Elder Scrolls Online

Hello! We are the Damsels Game!

The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. We’ve been busy gamers and we are ready to talk about it. Some of the Highpoints (Besides Elder Scrolls Online) are Dungeons and Dragons Online, Grounded, Far Cry 6, Halo, Master Cheif Edition, Satisfactory, and Borderlands 3. Spoiler warnings for Borderlands 3 and maybe Dune… Thanks so much for listening!

This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored, and here to tell us about it, is Mythery! 

This week’s featured shop is the Skyblock Mall Food Court:

Come eat at the Skyblock Mall Food Court where all of the food is locally sourced from the Skyblock Mall vendors and each week one of the vendors prepares the food. This week our chef will be Fred from Fred and Frodo’s Fabulous Fresh Fish. Fred will be making his famous chocolate chip cookies. Next week the chef on deck will be Biff from Barry and Biff’s Big Little Books. Biff will be making his chicken and cherry mash. Oh, it says here that Barry will be on hand to read prayers. Hmm, well isn’t that nice of him. Well, folks I guess there will be some extra festivities in the food court that week. So get on down to the Skyblock Mall Food Court today!

The Damsels Recorded Live on Sunday, October 23rd. This is our 156th show.  We put shows out whenever we can, you can listen via iTunes, other podcast media, Our Website, DamselsofDDO.com, or our home at Podcast Garden.com. Among other sources. 

Jibber Jabber Time! 

  • Emails
    • “The Kobolds wanted you to know that they were not underperforming, they said “the leader was under-leading.” They said they hate you and will never operate at 100% until you make things right for “what happened in water works.” I don’t know what that means. Just passing the message along!
  • Let’s talk videos and comments to videos! 
    • DDO 
      • A Quest a Day – Ep 53 came out yesterday
        • In the past two weeks, Sahba finished up Keep on the Borderlands, STK, and 3BC.
  • What we learned/ thoughts for the week:
    • Lessah:In your Xbox Console companion, it has your real name next to your player name by default. So if you are playing a game like Halo Reach or Minecraft Windows 10, your real name just pops up. 
    • Myth:   I need some tart cherry juice.
    • Sahba: Sahba is still dying more than she should.  I’m going to have to fix her feats and enhancements to do more self healing. Even with all the hirelings, she doesn’t get healed.  <G>

Elder Scrolls Online

We like this game. I think it was in a good position to be liked considering the three games we had tried just before were so bad. Ok, so they liked one of them (that one was number 3 so there ya go lol). Character movement is smooth, I can actually move when I am fighting, and there are some choices when leveling. The main quest line seems interesting and there are a ton of side quests to do if you need a break from the storyline. Teleportation IS a thing! Once you have found a teleport place you can hop between them at will for free to your heart’s content. The only time it’s going to cost you money is if you are stuck out in the middle of nowhere or are just too lazy to walk/ride to the nearest telepost station. Speaking of riding, you get a mount at level 10 which is available to all of your characters. Something we learned when we were questing together was that questing together is sometimes very difficult. Apparently some (or all, not sure) of the quests are played out in a random fashion. The goals and ultimate result are the same but getting there is different. Example: We got onto a ship to meet with a guy, they went down into the ship and found him tied to a bed. I l was separated from them and when I went down in the ship no one was there. I traveled to another city and found my guy tied up in a house in that city. The quest ended up the same but we didn’t do it together. I think it is kind of cool that the quest is exactly the same every time you have to do it but I think if you are partied you should be able to stay with your party. Other than that I have been having a lot of fun playing ESO. There is a Halloween event going on right now and we are going to step in and check it out for a bit before we move on to playing Grounded tonight. 

  • Our two weeks in gaming copycat
  • Halo
  • Satisfactory
    • We started a game with Rent and Tae. I am enjoying it very much! We are in an area where pretty much all of the resources we need are at our fingertips. So far I have only played this game with 1 other person at a time, this is much different and I like it. 
  • Far Cry 6
    • Ep 1 on YouTube – Lessah yells at FriendlyNecro for five mins!
  • Grounded
    • Grounded had an update which forced us to delete our game and start a new one.
  • DDO
  • Borderlands (SPOILERS)
    • I’ve been having so much fun playing this game with Patrick. I really love all of those crazy weapons! The story is good in this one too but I’m not sure it’s possible to top Handsome Jack. We have been fighting/chasing the twins around this whole time. People have died, main characters that I wasn’t expecting to die died. So we are fighting them and we kill the sister. I guess I should have known it would go down like this. The dweeb of a brother is the one I always expected to die. He is so stupid and such a dork but he has been collecting all of the powers lately and so there ya go. We kill her.  And it’s the end, it’s talking about Borderlands 4 and when it’s coming out and there is this countdown and it’s about to roll credits and then all of a sudden BAM! Fake out! Not over at all…..Geeze! It was so good! Best fake out ever. I mean I wasn’t prepared and I was shocked but I was like…ok I guess that’s that. So, with that said, I think we are pretty close to the end lol but it’s not over yet!
