I hope they will keep the same effects and stats as skyrim. (Damage, travel speed, etc.)

Anyways, what type of magic do you think your going to be using on ESO?

*Multi choice is an option if you like a hybrid*

I'm going to be a Mage, so I'm going to have all three. Though I think I'm going to focus mainly on Frost magic in order to keep the melee people from charging me and raping my corpse.

1. Frost
2. Fire
3. Shock
4. Healing
5. Alteration
6. Conjuration

Well hopefully they won't do it like Skyrim where shock magic cost the most magicka, frost the next most, and fire the least cost to cast. I think the obvious answer would be to use the one that will be most effective against your enemy (flame atronach more prone to frost damage, prob. resistant to fire damage, etc.). I don't think anyone would use one destruction magic type. I think the topic would be better if it asked what school(s) of magic people want to focus on.

Well frost will be good for the over populated hardcore melee classes, for example nords, but frost is easy to resist, and the highest population class, nords, has a born 50% resistance to it. I picked shock because almost no one has shock resist, and it travels extremely fast. Also we don't need to aim, since we have soft and hard locks. ;)

I was about Skyrim the system of fire, frost and blitz was a little bit disappointed.

Of course it all made damage, but the whole frost destroys stamina and blitz destroys Magicka didn´t worked all that well. I played a mage as second char, and whenever I met other mages I gave them blitz. But I always had the feeling like that whole system did only work proper on me. In battles with Frost Dragons I alsways run out of Stamina, Mages always blitz my magicka away. But I didn´t felt that impact to my opposites. Especially frost was stupid, as you need only little Stamina to commit strong strikes, so they gave me always hell.

I always ended up burning my way through all my enemies.

I hope if all combatants are players is works for everyone like it did for me, but as single player it was improper

We do, we do

Who knocked Yokuda off the maps?
Who keeps the Dwemer under wraps?
We do, we do

The two races that have elemental resistance are in my Faction.

For what we know for now, there won't be any racial bonuses anymore so no elemental resistance ... just saying ...

I will be using shock as it drains enemies magicka and if I play my class choice correctly I won't need to worry about melee classes just those pesky spells.

I do like my crowd control so I will probably focus on frost.

Frost and Fire. Frost to CC them and keep them at bay, then nuke the Sh*t out of them with a big ass fireball

I'm gonna go with frost to slow down/freeze my opponents and either shock to drain magicka or fire to nuke my opponents.
