ESO – but with a very specific question in mind: if I *love* RPGs and the ES setting, but only want to solo and am uninterested in *any* form of group, raid, or PvP MMO content, could I enjoy ESO?

I am ok limiting my play to stomping expansions-old group content single-player due to later expansion level and gear improvements as long as that content is still expansive and accessible when solo.

In short, I’m done with MMOs. I’ve been an officer in and even co-leader of raiding guilds in EQ1/2, WoW, DDO, etc. before and I am not at all interested in that type of game or RL time commitment/schedule anymore. Specifically, I am not interested in organizing other players (herding cats), dealing with griefers, ANY PvP, nor having to be online at certain times, or having the sky fall on me if I have to step away unexpectedly to attend to my infant should he wake from sleep, etc.

I do enjoy the some amount of (positive and limited) social interaction and the “lively” feeling of pseudo-MMOs like Fallout 76. In fact, that is the main game I am playing right now.

I also have some gripes about how Zenimax (which makes both games) runs its business and the degree to which profitability plays in Zenimax’s design principals.

Ive read enough other ESO threads in this subreddit to know it’s more of an MMO than FO76 is. So, my question is pretty specific.

——- TLDR: If I stick to the base storyline plus older expansions only, would it be possible to play ESO solo and enjoy it for 100+ hours without ever joining a group of other players or a raid? ——-

I’ll give you an example of what I mean: – in EQ1, if you played on a live server today you legitimately could go through most of the early expansions’ content completely solo (even raid content!) because of the increased level caps, QoL improvements, better gear, resistance augments, etc. that have evolved over its 20+ years. – Nothing is gated away requiring you to have friends or strangers accompany you in order to zone in, etc. you can go anywhere and it’s actually quite fun to one-man old raid zones that you used to do in groups of 64. – On top of that, EQ1 has an (imperfect but better than nothing) companion NPC system that allows you to play as your own small (1/3 standard size) group. – And I won’t even touch on multi-boxing but that’s a relatively easy option too.

Read:  So I wanted to figure out what my type of class actually is in an MMO, so I started backtracking what I played in some of my most played MMO's and why I played them to come up with an answer.

Do those types of solo adaptions contemporary/OP single-player stomping of older game content exist in ESO?
