So I've Heard there's gonna be this class In ESO called the Templar
I searched them up here : http://elderscrollsonline.info/classes
But it dosen't quite say if Templar is a Healing Class , Or a Tanking Class
I wanna Tank In ESO , So What would be better for me to Tank with
A Dragon Knight or A templar?

You can be an efficient tank with any class, but I think the Dragonknight has more tank-oriented abilities and skills.


By arrow. By blade.
By tooth. By claw.
By shock. By frost. By flame.
The Aldmeri Dominion will dominate Tamriel.
Our enemies will fall until the Throne is ours.

I would say Dragon Knight but the good thing about TES is that you can be whatever you want to be.


Long live the Pact, and Death to le Queen

From what I hear, and don't quote me on this, is that templar will probably be the PvP tank & the dragon knight will be the PvE tank. Not sure exactly how this will work, but I'm assuming this is because I don't believe monsters have CC breaks while players do. From this you can conclude a class that has something like a chain pull or what have you won't be as effective in PvP as one who can debuff enemies, heal allies, buff allies, etc.

There again, I wouldn't put all your money on a class - they don't seem all that important. In the end it's going to be (hopefully) skill when it comes down to it. I've heard that you can even tank with conjuration in the game by summoning monsters. So, I wouldn't worry too much about classes for this. Winking_grinning

Well, you can technically tank in PvP and PvE with both the templar and DK, but from what I've heard it's just going to be the "this is better for that" type of ordeal. In turn, while it would still be a viable option - it'd not be something hardcore PvP people would play. That is of course if what I have heard is true, which seeing as TESO isn't out yet it's all sort of up in the air atm. People say stuff, but in truth the only people who know are in Beta and won't say anything.

In all honesty, my best advice would be to do whatever you wanna do. If a DK sounds more attractive to you then play a DK. Don't let people saying one thing is better than another by a small margin detract from anything. In the end it is much more dependent on skills and such instead of your class.

In an interview, they said that currently the DK has the edge in tanking over other classes but they have full plans on tweaking the balance to put it more in line with the others. ZOS is really trying to make it so that each class can be just as effective (or at least one that doesn't obviously stand above the rest) at tanking as the others depending on HOW you want to tank. So far we have self-heal tanking from the Templar. We have summoning (with one creature having taunts, if I recall from halfway leaked skill trees from a long while back) and armor-enhancing from Sorcerer, there's the DK, and then there's the Nightblade which I'm not sure exactly what stuff they have for tanking.

A Nightblade tank would focus on Siphoning enemies of their health/magic/stamina and transferring to themselves to stay alive, or I'd image that's how it would work as their other classes don't fit the tank playstyle.

So like a pure vampire or vampire/nightblade hybrid could be a good tank, cause it would focus on absorbing and leeching health back to you.


Fight for something to die for, because living for nothing really isn't worth it.

Yes, you can but that's not the point. He means if it's advisable. I'd say if you're going to be a ranged sorcerer stick with light armour to boost your magicka. If you want higher defense, the sorcerer has great armour buffs. But that's just my opinion, wear whatever you want :)
