Steps

  1. 1
    The first thing we need to do is find "The Elder Scrolls Online" shortcut on the desktop.
    It is a series of beasts, one eating the other's tail to form a circle. We should have this on the desktop because of the last tutorial on how to create a desktop and Start menu shortcut on Windows 8.

    Under "GAMES" on the left side it states, "The Elder Scrolls Online (EU)", indicating that we are on the "EU" server.
    There's an EU Megaserver and a North American Megaserver. We can choose whichever one.

    To bypass the intro video, press the Esc key or click on the screen.

    Once that amazing intro is done, we will be in the character creation window.
    This is our portal to the game. We will want to choose an "ALLIANCE", a "RACE", and some professions. We can also choose how we look, especially if we are initially one of these crazy looking cat people. Those are all discussions for another tutorial. Make sure to check those out by searching for them here on VisiHow.
