Hive Mind

Naturally, you're going to have to prove yourself to some NPCs before they trust you. I know that I, for one, never trust anybody that can't beat my friends in a fight. You'll encounter a couple of quests where you have to challenge NPCs in a camp to a duel. Simple enough, right?

That is until you realize that they're part of some kind of collective with shared experiences. You beat one of them in a duel, and suddenly they all think you've beaten them. You'll eventually find enough non-connected folks to duel to complete the quests, but the first time you run into this, you'll likely end up as confused as I was.

Minecraft Arrows

You remember that whole Scrolls trademark kerfuffle? Mojang was making a digital card game called Scrolls, which didn't please the Attorney's Guild of Tamriel. I wonder if Mojang has a case now, given that these arrows are clearly straight out of Minecraft.

For some reason, I don't think this is a deliberate Minecraft easter egg, or the Fletcher's Guild's idea of innovation, so much as an hilarious graphics glitch. but then, I've seen weirder things.

You Spin Me Right Round, Baby, Right Round

Many games allow you to rotate your character in Character Selection. What better time to marvel at your character's crafting handiwork, or check out the aesthetics of your most recent dungeon loot acquisition.

Sometimes you get a little carried away, though. Instead of dutifully examining your armor set, you spin your character like a vinyl record. In TESO, your character might not take kindly to this, and will react if you spin it violently enough. If you haven't seen it in action you should definitely take it out for a... spin?
