I've been playing ESO for a couple of years now. I'm just now getting into SWL. You guys let me know if you need anything! I'll be happy to set you up with some gear, dungeon runs, trading guilds - anything you need really! @tensu.tengu
Not since One Tamriel released. Guilds are mostly multi-faction (except for PvP purposes) and players can go anywhere they want and quest with any other faction at any time. Cadwell's Silver and Gold still exists, but it doesn't block you from accessing the other faction's content. Races are still faction-locked unless you have the Explorer's Pack.
