If what we are hearing about the Elder Scrolls Online leveling system is correct, then it will test player’s patience because in order to reach level 50 it could take anywhere from 50 to 150 hours of gaming time. That is a huge amount of time to dedicate to one game, although people have put far more into Skyrim, and that does not offer the same possibilities as Elder Scrolls Online.
The amount of time it is taking people to level up while playing the beta version of Elder Scrolls Online varies because one gamer was said to have taken 144 hours to reach level 50, which is said to be around three weeks of gaming for a casual gamer.
However, other players have reached that level in far less time, with 70 to 80 hours for one and just over 50 hours for another. It does seem strange how some people are managing to level up faster than others, but then we guess that depends on how long it takes them to reach level 30.
Level 30 is an important milestone to reach because you gain speed at that kind of level and so leveling up further will come much sooner — well that’s the theory.
Getting to level 50 in Elder Scrolls Online has been cause for a huge debate, which can be seen on this Reddit thread. Upon reading a little further it seems that some players have reached level 50 quicker than others because they have skipped past some important features of the game, such as main quest lines and also dialogues. There is also the possibility that they skipped past some side content as well.
If you rush past certain aspects of the game you will be able to reach level 50 quicker, but if you are patient and play every part of Elder Scrolls Online, then the reward will be greater because you have worked much harder for it.
Thinking about buying and subscribing to Elder Scrolls Online, but still unsure if it is the game for you, then this video review roundup should help you reach a decision.
