Why do you want? Well, for starters, The Elder Scrolls: Blades really it feels like a game that belongs to the main series, an impressive first-person RPG experience with all the flavors you would expect. He has some clear mobile risks, which we'll get into shortly, but first you need to know if you can play it, even after the cut off access.
blades this is a fairly strong game with a graphical point of view, so that not only any device can handle it. Here is a list of what the device is certainly supported, although it is not necessarily with the & # 39 is comprehensive, as there are "other" option under your account:

Thus, we assume that you have a phone or tablet that allows you to play and either early access or read it after the game started. Congrats! Now, let's you squared away on how to get started.
If you play in a horizontal / landscape mode, you are moving or clicking where you want to go, or hold down on the left side of the screen to use a floating virtual joystick. In any case, you can hold and drag to the right side of the screen to look around. NPC you can talk about the & # 39; objects that you can interact with will have an icon next to them, and you just click on those to come and interact. The elements that can be captured will flash or light up a little bit, and you just click on these, as well as to pick them up.
Battle begins when you either get close enough to the enemy or one notices you up and running in the grill. To attack, you hold on both sides of the screen and release to swing your weapon. There's a surprising amount of strategy drawn; not only are you trying to time it when the enemy's guard down, but your chances of a critical strike will also increase if you release the right, when the circle that with & # 39; appears on the screen when you hold down completely. Several consecutive hits without an opponent blocking or eliminating damage to give you a combo bonus.
If you have a shield equipped, for his button will appear on the left side of the screen. You can hold to block incoming attacks, but when the unit time for when the opponent is in mid swing, it will reduce the damage even longer (sometimes even completely) and slightly to stun your opponent, leaving them open for a counterattack. Once you have leveled a bit, and spells and abilities will be key for those who are just left with the former, and the second on the right.
One of the iconic parts The Elder Scrolls: Blades with & # 39 is that you can also play in the vertical / portrait mode. If you do this, then the control is more or less the same, except that you need to click to move -no virtual shelf. Martial buttons in several different locations, as well as the first panel button, which is right in the middle of the screen towards the bottom.
Additional advice: Worrying about healing, because there is no way to gain access to the medicine inventory during a fight? Do not worry. If you are low on health, you will see a button with the & # 39 appears just above your health panel, you can press down the potion and keep yourself alive. If you die, you can revive with full health, stamina and Magicka with a scroll, but there is a limit to how much you can use in the search.
Once you have gone through the tutorial, you will be isolated in the world. Unlike most Elder Scrolls game, blades not from the & # 39 is an open-world experience, but you'll still have plenty of options for what to do next.
This is because even if you can not just go wandering through the countryside, you'll always have the choice of quests and jobs from which to choose. You can access it from the main menu (hamburger button) or go directly to it using the icon with an exclamation point.
assignments carry forward the narrative of history. work essentially side-quests that you can solve, some of which are available at any time, while others are rotated on a daily or weekly basis. They are good for collecting materials for the manufacture of transmission or to build or modernize structures in your city, which we'll talk later.
Both Jobs and Tasks have a level of complexity to the current level and the overall strength of the gear that will let you know about how tough they are. Obviously, you want to be well-stocked with supplies, if you are going to plunge into an affair with the 5-skull.
Each Quest and Job instance, so you just click on the one you want to take and click on the "Start" button, and go. In this sense, blades I took that often & # 39 is the worst part of the fantasy RPG that travels from place to place.
One of the more moving in (a word I just made) aspects The Elder Scrolls: Blades a city that is fast becoming your base of operations. Not that this is too unusual to be the case in a fantasy RPG, mind you, but as you collect resources to pay gold to build or modernize buildings and benefit from the improvements will feel very familiar with mobile gamers.
City, to be blunt, hot mess when you first inherit. All the buildings are destroyed, and in fact the only thing that is still intact with the & # 39 are the outer walls. You will meet and help Smithy in the first few quests that will set you on your way to error correction.
In the city there are different areas where the home or business can be built, along with small, medium and large spots to place decorations. Housing and decorations need to raise the prestige of your city, which in turn allows the company to further upgrade and unlock more story quests that advance your overall progress in blades.
Here are the different companies you can build in your city:
- smithy – a place where you can buy, sell, rescue and improve your weapons and armor. Updates allow you to work with a wider range (read: better materials) for the manufacture of gear.
- Alchemy lab – sells potions and poisons, as well as the components necessary to manufacture some for themselves.
- workshop – If you want more jewelry for your city than the ones you'll discover while looking for is a place to treat them. In addition, it sells construction materials, good for crafting jewelery and construction or modernization of other structures.
- tower Charm – Inclusion of regular elements in the magical items of & # 39 is that this place does. Sweet.
Additional advice: All buildings for housing, except take two adjacent lots to build. This limits the space in the city, where you can plop them down, and also means that you do not want to build housing in those places until you are sure that you have room for the good stuff.
Even before the whole world has access to The Elder Scrolls: BladesI already think that this will be the part that irritates people who do not play mobile games that often. During your adventure, you will find boxes containing gold, weapons, armor, consumables and building materials. Sometimes they will just sit, and you will also receive the boxes, as the search for a job or winning. This is good news.
The bad news is that the urns time to open (perhaps the reason-history of the & # 39 is you need to master keys all of them?), The better the boxes takes longer, and you can only work on the opening of one of them at the time. Longtime mobile games do not find it surprising, at least, but the rest of you could.
In addition, you can keep just only 10 trunks in the inventory at one time, although you can spend a premium currency to increase this amount. This means that you will almost certainly have a stacking boxes, if you are working on a good opening, which takes several hours, so that the breast system operates as a de facto border on your gaming sessions.
There is something you can do about that, though, it's a good transition to the next section …
Not really anything that is not true. Au contraire, precious stones & # 39 are the currency that makes it all takes place in blades:
- Accelerating the opening chestsAt a rate of 12 gems per hour, plus their fractions. You can use the gems to open the drawers, even if one is on the waiting timer to open, which is nice. The game is to clear your inventory of standard chests 1 Gem apiece, and better chest in anticipation. Or at least, it seems useful tactic.
- straight buying chests out of the store in the game, With the cost depending on the kind of breasts that. The better the chest, the more gems. You know how it goes.
- Accelerate the construction of buildings, Whether it is the construction of their new or upgrade them.
- Purchase of missing craft or building components, It seems to be less clever use of precious stones, because you can buy more ingredients for the gold or just go to work to get more. My personal recommendation is not ever do it.
To summarize, Gems accelerate almost all you need to do in the game, replacing the time. They do not help to make you more powerful, except in the case of a direct acquisition of chests, and even then you are at the mercy of the whims of the generator RNG to determine whether or not you get something strange.
Gems can be purchased for real money, and the main way blades in monetary terms. For ways you can not pay for them, keep reading.
So you would like more gems, but do not want to pay for them. It is quite clear thinking. It also did not pitch & # 39; yat, because there are several ways to get them for free.
Let us go through them together:
- Find them randomly in dungeons, This is a fluke, but the least reliable method of finding free Gems. In classic RPG fashion, there are a lot of cans, boxes and shelves that you can to defeat, and they flash / light, so that you know what they & # 39 are fragile. Every now and then, the gem will pop out. Please.
- up one level, Whenever the level of your character, you get a reward. Sometimes they come in the form of precious stones, and a decent amount. As one level, you may ask? You get XP for defeating enemies, but it is faster to get XP, completing quests and tasks. Much faster.
- Complete assignments, and challenges. In fact, I'm not as positive about it. But it goes without saying that, over time, will jobs and work, in particular, that give some gems. We'll see.
- Play modes Abyss and Arena. It's more speculation, but it feels a sound. Abyss Infinite Dungeons game where there is no healing consumables putting on and you just see how far deep you can go down with better loot got longer you can stay alive. PvP Arena mode is not available even in the early access, but I'd be shocked if you could not make the gems on a seasonal basis, as soon as it is.
