...I couldn't find out about skills and builds. I'd like to know from someone who has followed development more closely than I have (which doesn't say a lot) for the past 9 months.
Some of these may require actual beta experience (or such derived rumour) and I hope I'm not inciting NDA breach or anything.

Stamina and Magicka going to waste

Dodging, blocking, physical weapon attacks all seem to cost stamina, while staff abilities (not attacks?) and class skills drain magicka, correct?
How wise would it be to fill my hotbar with skills that cost only stamina?
Will my magicka pool go to waste? I'm assuming even with a stam heavy build it will be impossible to avoid having a magicka pool aswell (from gear f.ex).
How wise would it be to fill my hotbar with only magicka skills?
I guess I would still use stamina by weapon attacks, but will it be enough to make good use of the resource? Is it worth it to pass up on passive weapon skills by not slotting an active?

Aedric Spear

How is the spear conjured? By slotting one AS skill or does it only show while using an AS skill?
Does it matter which weapon I'm actually holding (disregarding passives)?

The main reason for these questions is that I'm recreating an old character of mine (DND4E, cha warlord) which means I'd be using only Aedric Spear and Restoring Light skills.

Swapping loadouts

When is it available? As soon as I "exit combat"?

Your first question I will say it's all dependant on your playstyle and what skills you would find most useful. Your character will have both magicka and stamina pools from the start. If you don't use any magicka based skills, you won't use your magicka pool, but I wouldn't really call it a waste if you never invest points into your pool in the first place. Your question about passives really confused me, and I'm not 100% sure what your asking there :/

second question, aedric spear is a skill so the spear will only materialize by using the spell and only last during the duration of it. So no, you won't be able to walk around holding a spear made of light.

third question weapon swap will be unlocked at lvl 15. you are able to freely swap your loadout anytime in or out of combat (so long as you have a weapon to swap to)

Nevermind! I just learned that weapon passives depend on wielding the weapon, not slotting a weapon active.

But can I then switch between two different skill sets using the same weapon?

I know that swapping weapons can swap your skill loadout, so your have:

Weapon A + skill 1-5
Weapon B + skill 6-10

As far as I know, the weapon swap system makes your weapon and skill loadout dependent on each other so one cannot be swapped without the other. I suspect they may make swapping skill loadouts optional so you can weapon swap while retaining one skill bar, but i doubt they will allow swapping skill loadouts independently of weapons (it is specifically called WEAPON swap after all)

Of course that is a pretty specific question and I don't recall it being directly addressed by ZOS so i could be completely wrong Tongue_out_laughing
