OP  3/06/13 1:15:16 PM#1

I've tried reading around about it with no success. Is there any word on classes in TESO? (I never played any elder scrolls games either).

 

I'm hoping for a caster type that shoots lightning. =)

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

From my understanding right now there are 4 classes:

  1. DragonKnight - Melee/magic hybrid character
  2. Templar - Healing/Melee hybrid
  3. Sorcerer - Caster/elementalist
  4. Warden - Offensive/healing caster
The supposedly 5th class will be:
  1. Nightblade - Rogue/thief type character

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Classes are not so set in stone. They have not given a lot of info but items can change how your class plays, like a mage with plate armor will be different then a mage with light armor. Also you can focus on healing, melee DPS, ranged DPS etc or you can be a jack of all trades. How it all works we dont have a lot of info.

The equipped items affecting your abilities reminds me of GW2's system.

 

I wonder if that will make people in RVR want to be more hybrid of whatever (melee/healing, nuker/healing) vs sticking to one role.

 

I always liked pumping all my damage stats on a nuker, but hopefuly the survivability sacrifice isn't too great to do that.

Its not like GW2 where a 2h sword gives you different skills then a dagger. Its where light armor items have more magica stat, I think medium and heavy armor have a different focus. So you want a powerful mage with big DDs and lots of range you need light armor for magica stat. But if you want a battle mages thats upclose and can take damage you equip heavy armor. Not 100% sure how this works  in ESO but its taken from TES system but I am sure it will have its own twist.

Except for Nightblade, the other are Ebonheart classes mentioned last October and we only have information about the Dragonknight and the Templar. Sorcerer and Warden were mentioned in passing.

The melee/caster/thief is sort of wrong now though. All the classes can use all the weapons and armor in the game. All the classes can use the utility skills like stealth. Weapons and classes specific skills give you the abilities that you can slot in the hotbar (6 per 'deck').

This mean that you can play a greatsword Sorcerer in heavy armor that sneak around if you want to. Doesn't mean it's a good idea...

15-16 unique classes per faction or are they like SWToR and really mirrored? Thats a heck of a lot of classes. Makes me worry about class balance.

Yes you can mix and match but TESO still has a trinity system unlike the mess that is GW2.

Six abilities on your bar with 2 of those being weapon abilities.

1-2 weapon abilities

3-4-5- will be your class abilities that every other person playing the same class will have.

6- is your ultimate class ability.

Right Mouse Button- blocking which drains stamina.

Left Mouse Button- interrupt enemy spells casting with shield or weapon bash while blocking or holding down the right mouse button.

A hybrid warrior is not going to tank as well as a full non hybrid who has followed his class line. Just like a hybrid temlar is not going to heal as well as a non hybrid templar who has gone down the pure healer class line.

A mage wearing full heavy armour will not gain the magical stats that wearing cloth or light armour would give them.

If my rogue uses a bow then ill have access to two bow abilities in my 1st and 2nd slot. Now i can then pick 3 of my own class abilities to help me use that weapon beyond just the two basic abilities it has given me. As a rogue i'm going to have access to snares and slow abilities. 

I put three snare or slowing abilities in my 3 class slots and then ill put a full blown dps class ability in my 6th ability slot. So i can fire my bow at your ass and keep you from reaching me with my class abilities and then finish you off with my ultimate dps class ability.

Kiting your ass will be fun.

An avoidance tank will not be able to out tank a full meat tank who wears heavy armour and follows the full class line.
