The ESO dev blog profiles the flame atronach
The elder scrolls and artist now have a lot of loyal players.There’s a new Elder Scrolls Online dev blog floating around the game’s official website. It’s all about flame atronachs and how the dev team at ZeniMax is going about creating them.
“Comfortable in both melee and at range, the flame atronach can lob deadly balls of fire, and it radiates a continuous burning aura, making it quite dangerous at any distance,” the dev blog explains. There’s a bit more verbiage about the creature’s sound design as well some screenshots, concept art, and a quick in-game video. You can see this last bit after the cut.
Flame atronachs are nice but are technically the weakest of the lot, at least as far as Skyrim is concerned. i still like ‘em though, but if you’re gonna be a vampire I would highly recommend a storm atronach instead. Fire hurts!
