*Melee

Closest thing to an all out tank, is either a Dragon knight or Templar in full heavy armour with sword and shield.

Yes, TESO does not have the standard classes per se, but you can develop your own character by choosing the skills you want.


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.

Melee tank with no magic: a Templar with a 2hander + heavy armour, some fighters guild skills and a sparkle of healing spells to keep you alive when soloing.

I would advice shield, if you go on tank, especially Templar.

There are too many archers, that actually are begging for a nerf atm, and you need the reflect arrows, shield charge and deadly or power bash.

You might go with the pull morph of the silver bolt, however, is stamina based. Rather use shield charge to knock them over and cover fast big distances.

After the mandatory healing, aedric spear for insta cast, damage burst.


DK has the chain to drag people closer (still if not resisted), and can go for pure DW or 2H setup.

Also NB can work very well on Tank with shield. Has some exceptionally good instant abilities to cover distance, and deal extra damage that are magicka based.

All in all you need HA & Shield and you have a beast of melee char no matter the class. Even sorcerer does make a good option for a tank. But be clever and put all attribute points to Health. You will end up with 2500hp on level 50 with some enchantments. Plus 1600+ AC and you are set.

if you go for templar (by far superior to solo the whole pve) do not forget the mandatory Ultimates. Rite passage is crap when comes to PvP and you are in the front line. Get something that does a good burst damage Ultimate like the Soul Magic, Aedric Spear or better the Dawnbreaker (fighter guild) for the extra security against Vamps & WW.

If you want pure melee just grab a sword and go hit things... nothing forces you to use magic


Which is more difficult: To do as you wish? Or to have power and choose not to?
