I'll be picking up TESO on Tuesday for Xbox one. I'm planning on using a battle Mage class, with a staff, sword, medium armor, and a bow. The problem is that this requires me to use every smithing class. (Blacksmith, woodworking, and clothing). Is it too difficult and time consuming to level all of these myself? I have two more friends who I will be playing with most of the time, so we could split the responsibilities. Thanks for the help

You will get a lot of skill points in ESO by the time you hit end game, but it is not advisable to sink a ton of skill points in multiple crafting skills while you are leveling up, as it could hinder your combat effectiveness. I would recommend picking 2 professions, and work on leveling them up as your character levels up, so that they are close to max when you hit max level cap. You could also have 1 primary profession, that you try to max out early, and a couple of secondary professions that will not be maxed out until very late game, when you are re-speccing skill points, and trying to get those last sky shards, etc. Of course, if you want to be more conservative with the skill points in your combat skill lines, you could invest in more professions, it is really going to depend on your playstyle, and what you want to do in the game. If you want to be a merchant trader, then you may only invest in 5 combat skills, and max out 5 or 6 crafting professions.

I am considering going for the blacksmith/enchant combo myself, so I can craft and enchant my own gear, and eventually make the best gear to sell. I just wonder how many other people are doing that same thing, because it might be easier to buy the gear and enchants I want from other players, and go with an alchemy/provisioning combo instead, so I always have plenty of buffs/potions and can sell the extras for profit. I guess we will see how it goes. My first night on ESO was kind of uneventful, as it took forever for the game to update and login due to the high number of people playing, so I really didn't do much beyond get out of cold harbor and start my first quest in Stros' Mkai (not sure if I spelled that right).

Also, since you will have a couple of friends you regularly play with, you might want to all talk it over, and make sure you are all doing different professions, so you will all have easy and cheap access to the goods the other friends are making.

The fires burn. Our supplies are spent. Axes are dull, and armor is rent. The enemy approaches, our doom, they seek. We are Daggerfall Covenant. We are Orcs. Our comrades, they come, for glory they seek, at the side of our iron and steel. We will not fall.

Thanks for the help. The game sort of made my decision for me, as in ESO you can't carry and staff and sword, nor do I have the chance to have a bow on hand, so that eliminated woodworking for me, along with that, I decided to run heavy armor since I won't be using as much stealth. My friends and I also decided to split alchemy, enchanting, and provisioning, and I'm going to enchant our gear.
