elder scrolls online needs to keep what makes it unique, and not try to hard to be something it is not. that being said, it would be awesome if the levitate/speed type spells would be available somehow.

however, being that this is an mmo, they are going to have to be very careful with gameplay balance. ALL of the elder scrolls i have played so far, while fun, are broken so very easily. a custom spell here, a OP enchant there, getting asuras star... and bam, you got a guy almost literally flying around the map 1 shotting everything that moves. you simply can't have stuff like that happening in an mmo.

...perhaps the reason i like the elder scrolls games is because i like to see how far i can bend the rules in them before the game breaks completely.

I played daoc for a long time and am a big fan of friors work. I was waiting for zenimax to announce what they were working on for a long long time. An elder scrolls mmo title had/has every chance to become a next gen UO, but it's looking less and less like that which is a shame because it's what the genre needs most right now.

I saw a lot of MMO behavior... I don't think they were exactly trying to hide it. It was very cinematic though and I think they did that to draw you in initially so that you listen to the other diaries. And I'm sure the HUD will be fully customizable. MMO fans can have the 50% of their screen filled with icons and others can have the bare minimum of Health etc. that disappears when not in use. I do like the massive raid style combat though at the end.
