The Elder Scrolls Online Classes
There are SIX classes in The Elder Scrolls Online from which to choose. You can be a Dragonknight, Templar, Nightblade, Sorcerer, Warden, or Necromancer. Each of these classes has THREE individual skill lines that make it unique from the rest. These skills vary in visual style, application, and the effects seen during combat or in-game mechanics.
There are three traditional roles in ESO which include a tank, a healer, and a damage dealer. However, the choices for creating a character are endless. Unlike traditional MMORPGs, The Elder Scrolls Online does NOT restrict you to a specific role per class. Instead, every single class in the game can play every single role. Tanks can help with dps and heals. Healers can do damage. DPS can contribute to heals or be tanky. The ONLY difference is YOUR playstyle and how YOU build it. Play your own way. Any class, any race, any role – the choice is yours.
There are countless millions of options in the game so testing what you like before pigeonholing yourself into one way or no way (the typical linear mindset of lesser games in the genre) is the key to maximum enjoyment in the game.
I have multiple builds of each class in various different playstyles each carefully designed and stress-tested to Nirn and back in a huge amount of REAL in-game situations in order to deliver to you fully functioning, successful, content viable builds for players of ALL experience levels!!
Decide which class is the most appealing to you, and then check out the builds I have to offer!

Meet The Dragonknight
The Dragonknight thrives in the heart of battle burning foes with cleansing flames and withstanding almost any assault. With skills like Molten Lava, Dragon Blood, and Fiery Grip, the Dragonknight allows you to win the war!
The Dragonknight class is a base game class. Dragonknights are extremely diverse with excellent melee abilities and ranged casting abilities.
Draw from the power of the earth and mythical dragons while overpowering enemies with ferocious fire spells. Dragonknights use the ancient Akaviri martial arts and wield fiery magic.
According to the lore book “Mythical Beast, Real Powers” by Drusus Ovicula, those fearless mortals who fought legendary dragons became ‘Dragonknights’. They are said to be able to wrap themselves in flame without being burned and can form a loop of flaming chain to draw a target near. Some are even said to be able to literally breathe fire!
Unleash your fury with relentless Fire and Poison abilities that deal devastating damage over time and intensify your attacks.
