The Elder Scrolls Online Class Preview

A decade and a half later after first setting foot on the island of Vvardenfell, gamers will have a chance to revisit the iconic setting on June 6 as part of the newest chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online, an open-world online role-playing game developed by Zenimax Online and published by Bethesda for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

In The Elder Scrolls Online, a right class could make you play more easily. The class system in ESO is a little different from others so the more you known the more easily you choose. Here is a guide for all new ESO players. It may help you to choose a right class.

Classes in ESO determine your basic skills. Does not matter what class you choose, you can use all weapons and armour types anyway. It is your choice what type of armour to use: heavy, light or medium leather. The same applies to weapons, you can wield any weapon and fight as you wish. So classes in ESO do not restrict you to only using a limited set of gear. They just set the general direction of your future development.

Elder Scrolls Online has 4 classes currently available for play. Each one has a distinct feel, making them play different than all the rest. One of the greatest parts of the class system is how diverse an individual class can be. Unlike other MMOs, ESO's classes have very differing skill trees, meaning that a tank class could also spec to be a healer or DPS.

Dragon Knight – DPS or Tank

These are basic fighters, with the added bonus of using fire magic. If you’ve messed with Death Knights in world of Warcraft, you have an idea of what to expect here. The powerful Dragon Knight wield the power of fire to dish out serious amounts of damage. They are great in close quarters battles, but also have a skill tree that can be touch into, allowing them to tank enemies for your group. They can easily wield any weapon, so don’t be surprised to see people running around with bows, swords or giant 2 handed weapons.

Sorcerer – DPS or Healer

This class is Elder Scrolls Online’s primary magic-using class. In other titles, the Sorcerer is called the Mage, Wizard, Warlock, or Necromancer. These long range damage dealers have multiple skill trees that allow them to dish out powerful spells. They can wield the power of lightning, or summon powerful Daedra from the realm of Oblivion. No matter what skill tree you pick, you will always be a back line caster, using a staff to sling your powerful spells.

Nightblade – DPS or Healer

The Templar is a warrior wielding Holy magic to smite enemies or heal allies. It’s equivalent to the Paladin class in most other games. It is one of the most diverse classes in the game. Each skill tree allows you to do something different, ranging from tanking to crowd control effects to healing. For this reason, it won’t be uncommon to see multiple Templars in a group, but each one filling a different role within it. Depending on the skill tree you pick, your weapon of choice will be different, with tanks option for a sword and shield while a Templar healer might want to use a staff.

Templar – Tank, DPS or Healer

This is your stealthy assassin class, mostly equivalent to Rogues or Rangers in other MMOs. The most dedicated DPS class in eso, the Nightblade allows players to deal large amounts of damage, while being heavily focused on stealth. No matter the skill tree you pick, you will always be able to deal tons of damage with this class. They are also great at soloing, and have very high sustain values thanks to their many skills that drain health, magicka and stamina from targets.

Those class tips are what you need to know once you choose to play the game. Besides, Morrowind introduces a new character class, the warden. The warden class has a nature magic focus, being able to heal allies or provide defensive shields, and can also summon a bear as a spirit animal companion.
