Please use this thread to discuss anything regarding this group. If we gain enough traction, we can always add a dedicated subforum later.
This group has been around for a while on the PTS but come launch i hope that "The Naked Nords" will be a frequent presence in Cyrodiil.
We chose 'Goldbrand' as our home campaign! We claimed Arrius Keep Farm for T.S.O. which means we now have a open guild store there.
The rules are simple:
- You have to be a Nord (or don't mind hanging out with them) and play in EP.
- You have to enjoy PvP (AvA).
- You have to fight naked (see bullet point below).
- You can wear 4 pieces of armor (to allow for set bonuses), which are: Helm/Helmet/Hat and Gauntlet/Bracers/Gloves and Sabatons/Boots/Shoes and a belt of your choice, otherwise it's all bare skin.
Besides that any class, gender and combination goes, no restrictions.
Check in here, mingle, post pictures, organize events, drink mead ...
My Naked Nord:
Thorwald Titanborn, Dragon Knight
boo, I totally want to join, but my main, who will be naked (at first) is gonna be a EP Breton, she needs her magic! But maybe she was an escaped slave raised by Nords?
I suppose I could make my char who I plan to call Serves Her Master a naked Nord, but I think that would be just asking for trouble and pervy pm's!
Well, since we're a bunch of tolerant naked Nords, other races will always be welcome to group up with us in PvP.
Yay, cause I hate the idea of trying to lvl an alt for PvP As it is, I will be surprised if my main even hits 10 by the end of April.
I take casual way to seriously.
Maybe we can have the birthday suite Bretons to stand by the Naked Nords as well?
I am soooo looking forward to this!
I will be rolling "Stark the Nekkid"
So excited for launch!
[EDIT] Any idea which campaign yet?
I decided to have some fun with this too, I made a big fat Naked Nord with a handle bar mustache and named him Ate my Clothes
Mine to, I have one at lvl 5 and 4 at lvl 1. I can't stay logged on long before I get nauseous from the screen, so I just chat!
I'll be adding Negatively Naked to the roster tonight.
I have to say that has to be one of my favorite names in the game. As far as getting my mind out of the gutter, I have no idea what happened to guild chat last night, but I think my mind is permanently gutter bound now!
We should all pick a level to achieve and then try to set some established times to play. Like Sunday evening or whatever works for everyone. I assume we could all get to level 10 pretty easily. Or since we should all be in the same alliance, I would be happy to group up with others to get to level 10. I'm only level 3 right after skipping the intro.
It'll be hard to get everyone out there at the same time, i'm hoping that we'll eventually have enough members to always have a decent presence.
I'm level 9 on my NN and usually weekends are best for me, i'm in CA which unfortunately puts me on the tail end of the night for the US.
Once you reach level 10 just check in here again and we'll see if we can find some time overlap.
PS: I think we need some ESO specific smilies ...
I'm with @http://www.TheSidekickOrder.com/bbs2/index.php?showuser=2 on the weekend and Pacific time (L.A. here) but I could probably work in just about any evening if I had it planned.
California for me as well. At least we have time zone in common
I'm up to lvl 5, slowly but surely...
I will join that group too. I just got half way through level 4 last night
If you guys meet up let me know and i'll swing by too!
I'm level 9 now, not sure if the phasing will allow me to join in ...

Woo Hoo I am semi on time for once, lol I'll log in now and see if you guys are in game
I just got home from work. Loooong day. Might get on in a sec to check on some crafting traits but that'll probably be all.
We had a little naked group going, Lots of Dancing and probably scaring the locals.
And when a guy ran past named man meat it was too funny! @http://www.TheSidekickOrder.com/bbs2/index.php?showuser=2, @http://www.TheSidekickOrder.com/bbs2/index.php?showuser=11, I think you guys missed Man Meat! Either that or had your fill.
If it Happens again tonight I will likely be on all night.
I decided after last night, to reroll my NN. He is going to be a Nightblade, cos I really suck at playing a tank. lol
He will look the same and have the same name tho, so Beiran Salt-Plank lives!
Had a great time btw! LOVE the screenshots! It was fun freaking ppl out at that quest turn in!
We are the ESO nudists!
Finally got to 10, so I signed up for Goldbrand... ready to die when you are! >.< Let me know when we're gonna show the enemy what we've got... erm, that is, combat-wise...
Sounds Like I need to get moving. I thought about it real hard (not) and put all my skill points into healing abilities. Now it is impossible to kill anything lol. But I am really hard to kill even with no armor on. Been leveling simply off exploration and chests lol.
Well, the good news is that armor is completely useless in Cyrodiil until you hit level 50, due to the upscaling of low level characters.
So, we'll have the same armor value as anyone else under lvl 50. That also means that the heavy armor skill tree is pretty much useless there too.
I'm trying to get my medium armor up so i can get some buff from those passives, but it's going slow with that one.
As for healing, i invested a few points into my backup weapon, the healing staff. The actually seems to work OK. We'll see if that is enough.
Oh, and i'm trying to get alchemy to the level where i can make those double potions that heal and replenish stamina/magicka at the same time. Almost there!
I think we'll have fun out there ...
Let's summarize this in one post. Below are things that do work and things that don't work when it comes to sub-50 PvP.
Things you do *want*:
- Anything that gives you elemental resistance, like resistance to fire etc.
- Anything that gives you a boost to your critical, both chance and damage modifiers are good. That includes Mundus effects like "The Thief" and "The Shadow".
- Anything that gives you critical hit resistance.
- Anything that gives you armor and spell penetration.
- Anything that gives you armor and spell resistance.
- Anything that increases weapon attack speed.
- Anything that increases movement speed.
- Any passive that gives you a percentage increase for something, like 2% more damage etc.
Impenetrable Uses Diamond. Increase resistance to critical hits by x.
Reinforced Uses Sardonix. Increase total armor and spell resistance by x%.
Well-fitted Uses Almandine. Reduces the cost of sprinting by x%.
Infused Uses Bloodstone. Increase armor enchantment effect by x%.
Divines Uses Sapphire. Increase Mundus Stone effects by x%.
Powered Uses Chysolite. Reduce cooldown of enchantments by x%.
Charged Uses Amethyst. Increase enchantment charges by x%.
Precise Uses Ruby. Increase weapon and spell critical values by x%.
Infused Uses Jade. Increase weapon enchantment effect by x%.
Defending Uses Turquoise. Increase total armor and spell resistance by x%.
Sharpened Uses Fire Opal. Increases armor and spell penetration by x%.
Weighted Uses Citrine. Increase weapon attack speed by x%.
Things that are *useless*:
- Armor buffs that increase your armor value. That includes "The Lady" Mundus effect(!).
- Buffs that increase health/magicka/stamina.
- Buffs that increase health/magicka/stamina regeneration.
- Any passive that gives you a fixed amount of something, like +50 armor etc.
Sturdy Uses Quartz. x% chance to avoid dacay when defeated.
Training Uses Emerald. Increase armor skill line XP with this armor type by x%.
Exploration Uses Garnet. Increase exploration experience gained by x%.
Training Uses Carnelian. Increase weapon skill line XP with this weapon type by x%.
Might be good to have a "PvP Armor & Weapon" set and a "Leveling Armor & Weapon" set. I actually have 3 sets. One with exploration I wear to run through a zone when I first get there while exploring all the areas. One with Training on it to level my skills super fast while doing quests and such. Then a fighting one I wear in PvP or if I am fighting a really hard boss or something similar.
Yes, i plan to have a dedicated set for PvP and another set for PvE.
In PvE, i'll need all the additional armor value i can get.
Of course, i won't hold it against any of you if you decide to wear full armor in PvE, but so far, i have been doing just fine with my limited wardrobe.
Never! Naked is in the name and so it shall be. You may die more but it's a lot less armor to repair also.
Andy, this is GOLD, thank you!
I would only add, in Mr. T's voice: "You need soul gems, fool! SOUL GEMS!!!!"
So much good info! I did pretty well last night, to my surprise, not dying! We had some naked boss killing going on, and it was a blast.
I have never played any char other then Sorc, so I am used to practically no armor. I imagine its harder for those that are used to heavy armor.
I accidentally made my Naked Nord a DK but I am finding the change fun, especially since my main is also on EP.
I just hit 10 on my main so I logged out for dinner. I'll jump on my Naked Nord later if anyone wants to group up. Otherwise I will work towards 10
Added a new reply instead of edit, I got to 7 on my Naked Nord buddying up with someone in my super tiny random guild, lol Every one needs at least 1 random guild right
So I am closer to naked Pvp. But if you guys want to get started earlier, my birthday suite breton, aka my main is now 10 and more then willing to try some naked PvP!
I went and checked out Goldbrand tonight, it's pretty much all red (EP).
Not sure how much fun that will be, i really hope we have some more AD and DC show up...
On the upside, i claimed Arrius Keep Farm for T.S.O. so we now have a open guild store there.
How about we come up with a time & date that everyone can agree on and just start running around?

Weekends are better than weekdays for me but I am occasionally on weekdays in the later afternoon/evening time for small random amounts of time.
For weekends I have no plans so if we do something then I can plan around it.
On the upside, with EP being so dominant right now, all the other faction gates are open and we could sneak inside and get the sky shards that are located there.
There's still plenty to do in Cyrodiil, we could finish some of the group dungeons and go on a Skyshard hunt ...
I would love to go skyshard hunting, especially on my main since I use her for both crafting and playing. I am suffering a serious shortage of skill points.
I am on most days/evenings and sometimes on weekends. My playtime is between PST 10ish AM - 11ish PM so I am pretty flexible, I can also jump on if I am not online during those times if you guys do group up. Just use the @ here and I think it goes to my email.
I am doing a full Cyrodiil skyshard hunt raid this weekend. It was initially intended for my main character though. I'll make an actual event for it soon.
@http://www.TheSidekickOrder.com/bbs2/index.php?showuser=2, no need, I thought it did since i get email notifications anyway. If I am near my computer and you guys form up posting it here chances are I will see it!
Great House Hlaalu has a PvP event tonight on Goldbrand, they're a EP guild and i plan to tag along with Thorwald.
I'm still just level 10 so i'm not sure exactly how useful i'll be but what the heck ...
So i joined GHH last night for some PvP action and i have to say that was a lot of fun.
Of course it helped to be part of a trained and organized group that actually knew what they were doing.
First i thought i wouldn't be of much use for them at level 10 but i ended up playing support and whipped out my trusty old restoration staff.
That turned out to be a good choice. I was able stay back a bit and keep up the healing and throw in a boatload of synergies and even got to use my ultimate a few times.
Heck, i even managed to get a few kills of my own that weren't group based. (you get kill credit for all kills in your group)
By the end of the night, we had all the center keeps and crowned a new (GHH) emperor!
We can always 'guest' in another campaign if you want. I however like the ease of travel on a red dominated map. lol
Sorry to come to the party late, but I just came back in town. I am available most evenings and weekends, Sundays are definitely good. I signed up for Goldbrand once I hit 10, so I'm ready when you are (questing would be fun too). Seems I'm slow to see stuff on here tho, sorry
I have sorely neglected my Naked Nord. I am going to try to get him out and about again soon!
Honestly, I was worried about the 'naked' part at first, but I'm soloing mobs in Eastmarch (lvl 33+) with my lvl 26 Naked Nord... and his armor is overcharged (yet he doesn't wear a chest piece?). Maybe there's some hidden benefit to going without armor? lol
On that note, has anyone fought without weapons. As in hand to hand?
I'm looking to roll a Naked Nord starting tonight. I started playing around with a naked Breton on a whim and found it worked pretty well (didn't level her too much, so I don't mind dumping the character).
I know pants are frowned on, but is there any aversion to belts? Looking to get some bonuses from medium armor (could always just say it's a navel ring).
Anyone got that reward yet?
Here's video from last night.
Svana has a new toy! She's spent so much time chopping wood to make bows, she decided to try planting her axe head into some daedra as well.
Svana likes it.
My favorite reply!
