The free One Tamriel Patch will be here soon (10/18)! Huge changes to the game! Take a look at the PC patch notes to get brought up to speed:
The tldr of major changes is as follows:
-All alliances share all of tamriel (outside of Cyrodiil) - You can group with other factions for quests, dungeons, etc.
-Everything operates as Wrothgar does (you scale to cp 160 or 150), and you can quest anywhere you want from the begining.
-All existing pledges now have a vet mode, a hard mode, and a monster set to obtain
-3 pledges per day with the chance at 6 undaunted keys (read more about this in notes)
-DUELING - we will be practicing dueling each other, not to stoke our own egos, but to learn/teach.
- Tons of new gear sets and all existing sets now come in armor, weapons, and jewelry (excluding willpower, endurance, and agility)
I encourage you to read the patch notes to see all the changes!

If you're looking to jump back into the action, this is a great time! We'll be very busy with trying out all the new changes, new pledge system, dueling, etc; in addition to our regular schedule of pvp, and trials.
On the subject of trials, we're looking to put together a team for vet trials. This is going to require a lot more than the non vet version. DPS and reaction time is extremely important. We're more than likely blending in with some other guilds who actively run vet trials regularly. Because of this we need anyone who is interested to take the time and test out their rotations on the Bloodspawn boss. The general target you're shooting for on all classes is 60 seconds. This isn't a hard stance number, but it is a goal we're shooting for.
We're not requiring you to hit a time, but you putting the effort into it shows that you're willing to tackle this challenging content. Do NOT let this freak you out and scare you. I don't care if you fail your first test and can't kill him before the enrage. We're not blacklisting you based on your times. You need to know where you stand, and how to improve your rotations. We'll be getting groups together soon to practice some dps tests.The standard on xbox that most guilds are going with is no ultimate. I'm not crazy about this, but just roll with it. It really doesn't matter that much. A tip shared with me: time yourself to 10% health on the boss and then wipe, so you can run it multiple times.
Again, running this test is not a requirement of all members, but if we're going to be running with people who have done this, and you want to come, please remember that we're occupying the time of everyone involved and respect that. This is why I'm asking you to test your dps and see where you need to improve (hell, I need to improve myself). These boss fights are very long as they have 30 mil+ hp sometimes, which is why optimizing your dps is important.
Non vet trials will still be run regularly as well, for those not interested in vet trials. This will be much more relaxed, as we can crush through most of these without a full group.
As always, thank you guys for being so great! We have a good thing going here and I look forward to pushing through all the new content with you all!
Hooray vet trials! Vet Hel Ra is a great stepping stone to getting after vet trials and get that sweet Shehai Shatterer title. SHE-HAII! Don't get flustered if you are wiping on boss fights. The key is to learn what is getting you and figure out what you need to do in order to not let it get you the next time. For the first boss, those gusts wreck ppl. Be aware of your surroundings and know when you have an AOE under your feet. You can't dps if you're dead! Stam users a good rule of thumb is making sure you have at least 18.5k health
