It's going to be a choice we all need to make some day, so it's a good idea to start thinking about it now:

What character build are you going to make our main/first accounts in TESO?

[Image: 8Aduh.png]

Some of the classes that will be in TESO include:

-Templar - a defensive warrior that uses restoration magic
-Dragonknight - an offensive warrior and heavy dps/tank
-Warden - a defensive mage that assists with buffs in combat
-Sorcerer - an offensive mage for aggressive ranged combat
-Nightblade - a rogue warrior that potentially uses a bow?
-Other - a class that we haven't seen or heard of before?

Questions to ask yourself before you create your character include:
-Should I focus on Melee, Magic, or Stealth?
-Should I be an Aggressive or Defensive player?
-What may be my secondary skills? (A Primary Tank, but Secondary Healer?)
-Will I ever want to change my build?
-Will I be Questing, or PvPing?


On a personal note, I plan to be a stealth ranger and warrior, so the Templar and Dragonknight don't seem to fit my build style. I don't plan to be a mage, and I'm not ready to choose the Nightblade because it may be a stealth warrior. I'm leaning towards the Nightblade, but picked other until we get more information on the classes.

Hmmm... I want to be a thief/Archer with some Desctruction magic, so I guess a NightArrow would be more like it, bu I choose nightblade anyhow because thats the general idea i want to get across.


For the Ebonheart Pact
I pledge my bow and attack
the time has come
to scourge the elven scum
We will fight we will win
we will never give in
"For the Pact" we cry
our vict'ry is nigh!

I thought Nightblades were Mage/Thief classes...
That's why I went with other :P
I'm basically gonna be a stealth focused archersniper.
edit:
If I could change my vote, I would. I wanna be a nightblade now XD.

Nightblade, all I need is some form of defensive stealth ability and a way to sneak into enemy areas, anything else I can customize with weapon choices.

I don't actually use stealth a lot but its a nice option to have. I'm more of a speedy rogue/warrior. I just went with Nightblade cause it seemed to be the only thing that kinda fits.

I went with Nightblade out of the known classes so far, although it's not certain. Waiting to find out what the other classes will be.

Out of those classes? Templar or Nightblade.

Nightblade seems along the lines of how I normally play my Khajiit characters, and Templar appeals to me as my WoW main is a Retribution Paladin.

Nice idea but this topic is a bit premature for me. We know too little of the abilities of each class. Also, I will likely play all classes as usual and then stay with the one that was most useful.
Perhaps the poll should be multiple choice?

Eventually when more information is released regarding classes, I plan to have this thread locked and get a new one started, unless someone else does it before me.

One thing that I just want to point out is the overwhelming support for Stealth related characters, because many of us are so used to being able to infinitely sneak without it impacting our Stamina bars.

To prevent everyone from choosing only stealth related characters, Zenimax needs to add in stealth perks to ALL classes to ensure that they're also used.

If you plan to be a warrior and a secondary thief, you shouldn't be forced to choose a thief build and then build it into a warrior!

I want to play a tanky type, but not enough is released about the game for me to say yes Templar(Paladin) is the way to go. I do like a tank that can heal, but AOE tank's are fantastic fun, and most info on combat and synergy all lead to the need of having an AOE heavy character.

So I will probably play a class that allows me to have AOE stuff's and take lots of damage.... but that choice was not up there:)

I didn't know stealth perks were class dependant like that. I'm assuming stealth perks are tied to the ability to sneak, which is available to all characters. Do you think you can find the source where you learned this? I'm asking because I know you're meticulous when it comes to sourcing.

No sources here my friend, simply speculation.

I was saying that they need to make sure all classes have stealth perks,
to prevent people from choosing only stealth builds.

Eventually people are going to find that stealth is going to be much harder than in the past Elder Scrolls RPGs, because we're going to be facing much smarter AI's and real people in PvP.
