The ESO Vodcast – Class Roundup

A group of Ebonheart players

Tune in for Soma and Deagen’s ultimate group setup!

Welcome back to another exciting episode of The ESO Vodcast, folks! We’ve recently finished with each individual class’ “skill breakdown” episode, but we aren’t quite done talking about the four classes of ESO just yet. Join us today for a roundup episode where we’ll discuss the newest Ask Us Anything: Variety Pack #8 which has some great new information that I’m sure you’ll love to hear. We’ll also be going over each class one last time to wrap up the last 2 weeks worth of episodes we’ve put out. We’ll debate what’s “OP”, what’s underwhelming, what we can’t wait for and more! The show will be wrapped up with questions from Tamriel Foundry members and from folks in the chat room. We hope you enjoy this more relaxed episode of the ESO Vodcast and be sure to tune in this Sunday for an in-depth look at the 3 melee weapon types you’ll be utilizing in Elder Scrolls Online; One-Hand and Shield, Dual-Wield and the Two-Handed weapon skill lines! Cheers and see you for the show!

 

Watch the REPLAY!

    When do you think they will release information on the possible warden class? What is the current status on that class will it be on release or add on?

    Yeah, there will only be DK, Sorcerer, Templar, and Nightblade so that your character customization is less locked by your class.

    hmm I don’t know if Templars will be that OP. They seem a little OP in an anti-melee PvP sense, but personally as a sorcerer i’m more afraid of Nightblades as their stat allocations will be easier depending on their idea of play. E.g typical assassin type build could go 50%HP 40% stam 10%Magika and be really good at what they intend to do ,which has already made me rethink my build in an armour type amounts and HP vs Magika allocation.

    Templars can only have 2 sets of 5 skills at once like any other class and the same amount of points to choose where to put hp/stam/magika increases.  If they have this “faceroll hybrid” in mind their hp won’t be amazing as they need to account for the amount of stam and magika needed  to use  all their tank/heal/dps skills people are afraid of. Most builds that are not Templars will also find/have skills for certain role types similar to these although there were some jaw dropping moves that are still  easily counterable but punishable to someone unsuspecting.

    E.g. the reflect spell was only to those nearby. See it and runaway/ don’t hit it and that move is next to useless and will cost them dearly if they have a hybrid stat allocation. (Think bladestorm in WoW. Sit in it and your gonna get hurt,  be aware of it and it is a joke)

    In PvE they do look like they will be great support but an all round build will still lack in something. Templars may be able to hold aggro, heal themselves and allies, and do some damage, but are they going to be able to put out enough dps whilst tanking and trying to keep themselves alive to kill something before they are out of resources?

    Blocking, Dodging ,  wep based attacks are all costing stamina. Heals and class skills costing  magika. Trying to do all these at once will be great for a short time, but seems to costly in the way people seem to worry how Templars will turn out.

    That’s my opinion anyhow.

    People think Templars are good because they have melee and ranged damage and they can heal. But all of those things can be replaced by weapon skills, while other classes’ abilities are intangible. Templars are replaceable while other classes are not.

    yeah, the only thing they had that worries me personally is the cleansing ritual. Other than sorcs ultimate (not my ultimate of choice either) it seems to be the only dispel? Could be wrong but as far as i’m aware…

    I am hoping the Templar’s cleansing and Sorcerer’s dispel spells substituted by player made foods or potions. I think the devs will work that out ok.

    What I am worried about is bag space for items:

    (3) full armor set plus jewelry and role playing items

    (10) different weapons type (including bows and the 4 staffs)

    (50) potions and (50) food

    then we need room for harvested items for the multi crafting types as we explore Tamriel.

    Last we need backpack space to hold  junk items and crafted items to sell back to vendors.

    I would hate to have to manage my points for Health, Stamina, Magicka, hotbars skills

    and then waste time (or stop action to make selling runs) getting my inventory ready before

    going into a dungeon with my buddies?

    I thought they said it would be a weight based system like in past TES games, rather than a slot based system, so I think you’re looking at space the wrong way. Potions/Food/Ingredients shouldn’t take more than .1 lbs. per item, so that’s only 5 lbs. for 50 pots. As long as you have a good 50 – 100 lbs. available, I don’t see a space problem existing if you know how to manage that capacity well.

    @Jumpman347

    I can’t remember the interview or even if I am right lol. But I do think they said they were going with a “Bag space/slot” system.

    But if that’s a worry @Quester  similar items will probably stack. I can’t imagine you’re going need 50 slots for 50 butterfly wings. I think they said there was only 1/2 crafting skills you could get up or max out? Doing all 4 might not be as beneficial but I suppose if that’s how you wanna play, yes I can see there being issues with bag space.

    @Alker yes in past interviews they did state you will only be able to “master” two of the crafting lines or could train more than that but not reach the master level.

     

    Also looking forward to getting this upload from youtube so I can watch it.  Had to miss the live broadcast.  Actually I have a 30 min drive to work so I just listen to these on my way to and from :)  Makes the drive a lot more fun
