  • Common Freak

    Would like to see a way to fix the elder scrolls online graphical issues, to use with my 5 to 6 year old laptop without SSD (cpu = A10-5750M, gpu = Radeon HD 8650G + HD 8570M). The game seems to sometimes not load anything other than the player model, the map, shadows of NPCs and shadows of other players, but at other times it seems just fine for a pretty long time.

  • Lobo 4lph4
