Who else is planning to be a tank when the game is released? I know I am.

If you are, why are you?

Yeah I probably should have used build in the title instead of class. My fault.

Maybe a Dragon Knight would be suitable for a tank as well. But I don't think it really matter too much because of our ability to use any weapon/armor.

And also not that I know of. I only know of the ones that have been released so far.

I'd bet that DK, Warder, and Templar will be the "best" tanking classes due to them being melee and/or defensive based.
Any class can tank though, as long as you have the armor and enough points in health.

Casters and stealth aren't usually tanks...

But, uh, they could still be effective tanks if you load them up with heavy armor and health. Not sure how that would work with their playstyles and skills, but it would be interesting.

With the ability to pick any armor and weapons I'm sure you could. I was thinking of a heavy armor (of course) two handed, restoration tank. I've always liked to add a bit of magic in there in case I need it. I'm not a big fan of archery so I don't think I will be going down that route.

I'd recommend Templar, because that's pretty much what he's for. Melee + Tank + Defense + Heal

Do you recommend a class for me? I was thinking of Dragon Knight but I'm not sure. I want to be more of an offensive tank rather than a defensive tank.

Also do we know if classes are faction specific or no?

While you could do that on any class, some classes will have skills with particular playstyles in mind. I haven't seen much of them, so I'm just going by the descriptions we got.

For a more offensive oriented melee tank, I'd say DK.
For a more defensive/heal melee tank, I'd go for Templar.

I'm rolling a tank. I'm waiting to find out more about the perk system -- namely armor perks and how primary stat perks affect survivability -- before settling on a class. I want to offer more than just a brick wall; whether that's buffs, ally-targeted abilities, or heals remains to be seen. I'm leaning towards a templar, but I want to know more about the unannounced classes and the dragonknight before I settle on one.

The beta will help too ^_^

From what I understand, the trinity isn't supposed to be so well defined in TESO, so I'll wait to find out more about that before I play. however, if I can tank, I will. Templar seems to be closest to my preferred style thus far, but all the classes are yet to be announced and fleshed out. I guess we'll have to wait. The ideal would be Nord, Sword and Board, heavy armour with restoration and alteration buffs and self heals.
