The question is simple

What gear do you prefer?
Gear that boosts your Defensive Capabilities Or gear that boosts your offensive Capalities


For example: You find gloves that have 15% resist fire
then you find some gloves that have 15% more damage
wich do you take and why?

It depends on what is doing what... I'd gladly take a set of armor with a resistance to magic over a sword that does more damage than my own... Besides, a master of smithing could easily ramp up the damage done.

You must have a mixture, walking pure offensive in a battle would be difficult especially if your opponent is defensive and walking pure defensive makes all your battles last too long and you could die if the battle lasts too long.

During all TES games my mentality was ''get the heaviest armour and the best weapons'' but if I had to choose I would still go for a even match

I'd say Offensive just because being a ranged fighter my best denfense in the distance between myself and my enemy so gear that is offensivly based would help me down an enemy before they could get close enough to land a strike but keeping in mind that both are needed a melee fighter with high defensive gear would be harder to kill because they could take the blows and close in on a ranged fighter and land attacks but if the distance could not be closed the ranged will always win.

I'd usually say defense.
But if they make the game so enemies will always overwhelm you with time, it's gonna need to be offense.
ESO is kinda looking to me like all these other games where you just gotta kill enemies before you die.
Hopefully that changes in future gameplay footage. I want some strategy.

I'd say theres strategy. But like in every MMO people are gonna be using dumb strategies and dumb techniques for the first few months . then they will develop stronger and more effective techniques.

They didin't want to show any strategy just because well they aren't 100% finished

I always enjoy glass canon builds. Loads of damage with little protection, it just makes the game a lot more exciting ;)

sort of like the apprentice stone or birth sign with a high elf In oblivion that would mean that you have like a 75% weakness to magic.

I think it was more like 125% magic weakness but I could be wrong cause all my Altmer characters in Oblivion were born under the Atronach.

Also, how many guilds are you part of Ragnar?

Like 4-5 guilds one for my Khajiit and 4 for my Nord. Why did you ask may I add?
EDIT: I have checked I'm part of 3 guilds I don't think I will have a guild for my DC character.

I only ask cause I noticed your sig and all the Guilds you're taking part in. It was more out of curiosity that I asked; sorry for being a little nosy.
