StratsCo ESO Guild. Believe it. The best group across the entire StatsCo community. Top best.
StratsCo is first and foremost a gaming community, where people with real life concerns can focus on their out of game lives, and still have a place to call home when they get online. We respect each other, and expect everyone to conduct themselves in a respectful manner. The following are to be read it is expected that everyone follow them.

- IN ORDER TO TAKE PART IN GUILD ACTIVITIES THAT REQUIRE THE USE OF THE DISCORD you must change your nickname for the server to match that of your account name in the guild. This is to make sure that if we need to mail prizes, or in the event someone needs to be kicked, we don’t have to play guessing games.
If you are offline for more than 2 weeks your account is subject to removal from the guild, if you plan on being absent for an extended period of time, please let a member of leadership know before you leave.
Officers have the right and responsibility to address any reported or witnessed incidents of concern. Less serious incidents will be met with a simple message to the parties involved, a discussion, and/or a warning. Officers may remove any individual for behavior that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive or harmful to the StratsCo or its members.
The Leadership Team may remove individuals whose behavior is deemed to be particularly disruptive, so long as a majority of the officers online at the time agree it is warranted. If no other officers are online at the time, due discretion is to be used on an individual basis. Any questions or concerns contact a member of leadership.
Have Fun - We are all here to have fun. The Guild has different levels of experience, some may be here for the first time so please be patient. Remember we all had to learn the first time around.
To ensure a smooth experience for everyone, we require the following:
- Normal Trials - Minimum level 50
- Veteran Trials - Minimum CP300
Be Respectful of your fellow members time - this includes:
- Be Online 15 minutes early for invites. Real life can get in the way, please post a message that you plan to attend but will be late.
- Be Prepared - Have bag space, food (16.5-18K Health Recommended), potions, repairs, set CP, etc.
- Be Ready - Plan to spend up to 2 hours in the Trial. We will have scheduled breaks for snacks, drinks, etc. Let the Trial Leader know if something urgent comes up.
- If you have to later drop your role, you can click the reaction button again and remove your name.
Follow Trial Leaders Instruction - There is one Trial Leader that will explain mechanics and strategy. There are many different approaches to fights that are determined by group make-up and experience. We welcome input when lead initiates strategy discussion before fights but too many voices can cause confusion.
Hold Chat During Boss Fights - Discussion during boss fights is reserved for the Trial Leader and designated calls. Too much chat causes confusion, especially for new players that need to listen for instruction.
Gear - Will only be traded after last boss. This keeps the pace and you may get a drop for the piece of gear you are looking for during the Trial.
Any hard taunts are only for Tank Role - Non-Tanks using these abilities can wipe the group, prevent boss kills, and waste time. Make sure to check the skills on your bars. If you taunt it, you tank it.
For all crafting requests, please fill out the crafting request form. Please remember the crafters in the guild are people just like you. We will craft your gear as soon as we can but sometimes life gets busy so please be patient.
ESO is an extremely large game and it can be quite overwhelming for new players. We've put together some information and links to resources we find useful to help you get the most out of the game.
- Dies'alot's primary residence is packed full of useful tools like crafting stations, a transmute station, Mundus stones, and training dummies. To access this, press G in game, go to the roster, and find Dies'alot. Right click on the player name and choose Visit Primary Residence. You can still visit the guild hall even if Dies’alot is offline.
- A free set of Training Gear is available to each member. Usually this is requested as level 10 gear with the training trait on all items. You can choose the weight of armor when you fill out the crafting request form. This is a great way to get extra experience when levelling a new character, especially when combined with experience scrolls. A set of level 10 training gear will last you all the way to level 50. Just mix up your weapons and jewelry with what you pick up as you go. You can submit a training gear crafting request by typing !teso in Discord and selecting the crafting request form.
- Other gear can be crafted also. Please fill out the form with what you need and we will get back to you with the cost.
- One great benefit of being in a guild is being able to travel to guildmates for free. If there is a zone you need to get to but have not yet discovered, press G in game and select the roster. Check to see if any people in the guild are in the zone you wish to travel to. If so, right click on them and select Travel to Player. This will take you to the wayshrine closest to them. If no-one is where you need to go, ask in guild chat if someone can travel to where you need to go. There is usually someone willing to help!
- Another great use of this ability is if you've run far away from the nearest wayshrine and do not wish to run all the way back. Just travel to a player in your zone and you'll appear at a wayshrine where you can then choose your next destination.
- If you've been reluctant to get into group content because you've never done it before or are unsure if you are at the right level, then your guildmates are in the perfect position to help. We can advise on what content is appropriate and help take you through some group content to help you get comfortable without judgement. The guild also runs organised group content events, which can be found in the #guild-events channel.
- There are lots of people who log in regularly and enjoy the social side of playing an MMO. Celebrate your achievements, share your frustrations, discuss tips and tricks, and enjoy sharing the game with others. You'll find us both in the in-game chat and Discord.
- The guild runs competitions regularly, and they vary in their focus. You do not need to be a high level player to participate in and win competitions. Competitions and winners are announced in Discord, so join in. Raffles are one of the easiest competitions to participate in. Every 500g you donate to the guild buys you one ticket in the raffle, where you can earn prizes. Like any raffle, much of the money goes back into the raffle prizes. The extra money raised is used to help cover the guild's expenses.
- Help other players with issues if they are asking for help. Do this without judgement. However, if a guild member is constantly begging for resources or help, then please raise this with a guild officer. We're happy to help but are not here to offer endless handouts. Requests for help should be humble.
- Participate in the guild raffles. There are lots of things for the guild to purchase to make life even better for our guildmates, so help out by participating. You might even win big!
- Participate in guild events. It’s fun and helps other people feel comfortable with joining in as well.
- Be excellent to each other. Treat others the way you would like to be treated. Remember that other players are real people with real life issues. Many players come to the game to escape their real life problems. Don't make that time miserable for them. Make it enjoyable.
- Set clear expectations. It’s always great to get to know your guildmates by doing content together. When recruiting players for runs, be sure to clearly state any soft requirements (prior clears, cp level, etc) if you have any, and what content you’re running. Everyone is always glad to be of help, but stating expectations ahead of time can make the run a lot more fun and smooth!
- The guild has a bank where people can donate items to the guild to be used as needed. This can be accessed at any bank. Be sure to select the right bank when depositing items. If you accidentally deposit a personal item into the guild bank, please message us in Discord and we’ll retrieve it for you.
You may find yourself low on a particular resource in the game, or chasing a particular item. Guild stores are a great way to buy these items. Every guild has a store and all guildmates can trade between each other with this store. It can be accessed at any bank location by selecting Guild Store.
Guilds can also bid on in-game traders. If successful, any player in the game (including those outside the guild) can purchase from the guild store via the in-game trader. This is very expensive (often in the millions of gold), so while we will always have a guild store, we will not always have an in-game trader.
Similarly, you can buy from other guild stores via their in-game traders, even if you are not a part of that guild. Every major city has multiple guild traders, and indeed they are located all over Tamriel.
If you are chasing something in particular, a useful resource is the Tamriel Trade Centre website. https://us.tamrieltradecentre.com/pc/Trade It will tell you where items are for sale in guild traders and how long ago it was posted. Be aware that cheap items may have sold despite still appearing in Tamriel Trade Centre, so keep that in mind. You cannot access other guild stores via the bank (unless you are also part of that guild). You will need to travel to the in-game trader to trade.
Whenever you are looking at guild stores, be sure to press the R key to see the current listings. Every time you change filter selections in the stores, you need to press R again to refresh the listings.
There are some activities that people often do every day on each character in order to ensure your character is levelling skills efficiently and quickly. These are not mandatory and if there are any activities you do not enjoy, simply don't do them.
- Mount leveling. You can upgrade one mount skill every 20 hours for the cost of 250g. When you start out with a new character, mount riding speed is very slow! Get your mount skills as high as possible by making sure you visit a stable in any major city every day with each character. You can do this on each of your characters every day.
Also, if you haven't already, be sure to do the Cyrodiil tutorial to level your Assault skill line to level 3. Once completed, invest a skill point into the Continuous Attack passive for the Major Gallop speed buff. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=of4_kC8YiMI
- Crafting writs. One way to improve your crafting skills, get gold, and get crafting materials is to do daily crafting writs. There are some great PC add-ons to help with this, which are Dolgubon's Lazy Writ Crafter, Daily Alchemy, and Daily Provisioning. Be sure to go into Settings > Add-ons > Dolgubon’s Lazy Writ Crafter and turn Autocraft On if you prefer the least clicks possible. If you do manage to be rewarded with a sealed master writ and you do not wish to carry it out, please send it to @Dies'alot who uses them to help improve the guild resources. You can do this on each of your characters every day.
- Researching items. Each major city has a set of crafting stations where you can research items that have traits you have not researched yet. The higher your level in each crafting line, the more skills you can unlock. One of these skills can increase the amount of items you are researching at any one time. In order to craft an item with a particular trait, you need to have researched that trait. Most craftable sets need a certain number of traits to be researched in order to craft that particular item. Usually the more desirable the set, the more traits you need to have researched for each piece. Because of this, many players wish to have something researching at all times, so they check the crafting station regularly to see if any research has been completed.
It's also worth noting that the more traits that have been researched for an item, the longer the research time. The last couple of traits for each item take a long time!
- Daily rewards. Don't forget to claim your daily rewards for logging in. Some are useless, others are very useful. You only get one daily reward per account, not per character.
- Daily normal dungeon. These are great for a significant amount of XP and also for some sweet rewards, including ten transmute crystals. You can do this on each of your characters every day.
