TESO: Castle of Worms

*** Spoiler Alert***

I’d been hanging onto my next The Elder Scrolls Online (TESO) main quest mission while I completed the main line quest in Stormhaven. With High King Emeric saved from the Night Terror, I proceeded to the Harborage to find out if the Prophet had made any progress in locating Sai Sahan. Was I surprised by who else was there: Abnur Tharn – though not in the flesh. That was the whole point. The mission turned out to be a lot different from the one I thought I’d be embarking on. It was difficult, and though battered and bruised in the end, I was victorious! For those who want to know what to expect, here’s a video I made 1 . I didn’t include everything in the quest. There is one surprise I specifically left out. šŸ™‚ But the entire boss fight is there, and unlike me, you should have a very good idea of what you’ll face when you get there. Enjoy!

  1. I used Open Broadcast Software’s (OBS) save to file feature. For encoding I set the Quality Balance to 10, the highest setting, and set the Max Bitrate to 5000 kb/s. The buffer I set to match. The video resolution was my main monitor’s maximum setting of 2560×1600. I did no resolution downscaling. All other OBS settings were done according to the guide on the OBS web site. As for TESO, I had every graphics setting maxed out. XD I recorded the entire play session. It was just over 2 hours long. The entire capture was less than four (4) gigabytes in an MP4 format. You can see some blurring due to the encoding, most noticeable to me when I first steppedĀ onto the top of the tower. The fine twigs of the dead plants up there especially blur. However, the fight sequences are very watchable. TESO isĀ a good candidate for video capture with compression.
