Which was the first Elder Scrolls game you played?

Sunday, 28 August 2011


One of the PAX attendees who braved the 2½ hour line to play Skyrim, has revealed to us, the inclusion of wisps in the game. The wisp, being the most hated enemy in Oblivion, should disappoint most people, as they'd rather see it gone, but fear not.

There is not talk of the ol' will-o-the-wisp from Oblivion. Rather than a glowing orb of light, the player described it as an aetherial-looking female. Realizing for the first time that I don't know what aetherial means exactly, I'm guessing that it means it was kind of elf-spirit looking - maybe like a nymph?


  1. I personally enjoyed the will-o-the-wisps in oblivion, as it is a connection to old Scottish folklore (Possibly others as well) as people would see them in the peat bogs at night and believed them to be spirits.

    Though it was very upsetting when I attacked one before I had a silver weapon and got owned by a glowing ball.

  2. Ethereal? I believe it's like godly, or majestic. So yeah like a spirit. Which is awesome that they did a great update to the wisps, I hated those things...
