Classes in Elder Scrolls Online are pre-made character roles equipped with skills and equipment geared towards their intended purpose within an adventuring party. Most traditional MMOs have restrictive class skills, which are a subset of your weapon choice, much like Guild Wars 2. The game also features Skill Points, allowing for the player to create specific builds  around specific attributes.

  • A fifth class, called the Warden was added with the Morrowind Chapter on June 6th, 2017.
  • A sixth class, the Necromancer, will be added with the Elsweyr Chapter on June 4th, 2019.


Classes in ESO



Use the ancient Akaviri martial arts tradition of battle-spirit to gain powerful buffs and deal fire damage



Use stealth, luck and cunning to deal devastating criticals and master physical and magic damage



Master the elements and protect yourself with flesh and bone from the fallen





Control fearsome summons and deal devastating magic, lightning and fire damage.



Use the power of radiance to deal powerful light-based attacks or heal your allies



Become one with nature and harvest its powers for healing and damage with unique frost abilities

      Everyone who reads this article, read it and leave, because comments are usually useless on a trusted source, and you should ignore all this and play the freaking game. So please ignore this comment unless you understand what I'm telling you, because you would be going to actually experience the game for yourself.

        You guys are retarded. Suggestions are to ease the game for scrubs that can only play games that the playerbase can offer them guides to using a class the most effective way. Not everyone is a curious cat and good at mmos. I play with guide junkies. So you guys and your "I'm offended" post can shove one up your... You snowflakes.

                Class Roles and Suggestions01 Jun 2016 20:26  

                Class Roles and Race Suggestions should be removed due to the nature of the skills/builds in this game. Every class can play every role with every race well if not better than some of the suggestions here i.e. Breton Dragon Knight Healer would be a VERY good character.

                    And their work clearly shows! The game is awesome!30 May 2016 15:17  

                    People must be crazy. RPG experience A, Graphics A+, multiplayer I haven't touched much, Co-oping is fun.Seriously even if you do compare this to Skyrim or Oblivion I'm honestly not disappointed. They literally just hijacked everything I love about Elder Scrolls and put it into a huge open beautiful world with other real players in it. What's not to love? :D Best game I've played all year. And thank you for all your hard work developers and for not nickle and diming me (allowing me to purchase content permanently instead of through subscription)
