The Elder Scrolls Online opens a grab bag of questions
Veteran points are a lot like experience points in that they're the same thing with a new name, sort of.
Sometimes questions don't fit together in a nice theme. The Elder Scrolls Online often bunches questions together with an overarching element, but the most recent round of questions is a real grab bag. It covers everything from resurrection and PvP environments to mixing and matching armor, from weapon styles to disguises. So there's plenty to unpack, in other words.
