So I totally appreciate the attention to detail in the graphics, and love the different animations that happen for other characters when they are looking at a map, reading a book or their journal, or rooting around in their inventory. It’s just a very nice touch, you know?
So for the starting bit in Coldharbour, even if you form a group with your friends (like we did) everyone is phased until you get to Tamriel. Which makes sense and all. But for the first beta we found an amusing bug where, even though group-mates were invisible to you, if they read their journal the book part of the graphic would appear, floating in space where they were standing.
