    Since we are seeing a lot of the same questions about starting out and leveling characters let me just lay out some general tips for people who are new to the game.  This is redundant info from @FrancisCrawford‘s thread below, but  people tend to not search and read before asking (go there and read for great info!):

    http://tamrielfoundry.com/topic/general-tips-for-new-or-returning-players/

    So!  When you start a character, especially your first character you are taking to 50 as a new player, this is what you need to be successful:

    1) grinding your first character to 50 is a waste. This is an mmoRPG… rpg… Play through the game. I promise you, endgame is fun but if you dont know how to play you are just going to suck and struggle in endgame pvp and group pve content… Plus if you just grind you still have to go all the way back through every zone gathering skyshards, lorebooks and completing the core quests that reward skill points so that you have enough skill points to spend to have all the necessary morphs and passives… Dont screw yourself by grinding. You are just making it boring to catch up later. Also, once you have completed all the endgame content you will just get bored – the only thing left is grinding out the best gear and repetitive pvp. Not everyone has the mentality of wanting to have/be the best… And as such will just quit after a couple months of repetitive endgame dungeons, trials, etc. just play the game and enjoy it your first play through… Then worry about endgame.

    2) use your skill points to unlock the first skill of each class skill line and weapon skill line for the spec you are playing (by spec i mean magicka or stamina… Those are usually defined by race choice based on the racial passive strengths).

    3) you have 5 skill slots and an ultimate.  Slot one skill from each class line and two weapon skills.  For stamina specs, your first weapons should really be 2h and bow; for magicka obviously resto and destro.  I will discuss later why.  Killing enemies and completing quests will give the slotted skills and their skill lines xp to rank them up.  The same goes for the weapon and armor you are actively using when you gain xp.

    4) at first wear head, chest, legs heavy armor, feet and shoulders medium, belt and hands light.  Ideally these should all be training traits as well… But as long as you have a couple pieces of each armor type you are in good shape to level all 3 quickly.  Having more defense with heavy armor is fine at first because you have no passives unlocked for any of the 3 armor lines… So just gear to survive.  Once you hit level 20-30 or so you will have reached a significant level for each of these armor skill lines to choose 5 pieces of the type that suits your spec best; continue to wear 1 of each of the other 2 types until they reach rank 50.

    5) try to utilize a crowd control (cc) skill to assist you in survivability… These are stuns, knockdowns, knockbacks, petrify… When you apply one of these status effects to an enemy, when the duration ends they have a short period of time of immunity to all CC skills.  Pairing a “hard” CC like those above with soft CC (immobilize, also called “root,” and snare) allows you to lock most foes up or at least limit their ability to attack you by keeping them away while you stay mobile.  The first destro staff skill used with a flame staff and morphed to “clench” is a great knockback/stun; wrecking blow from 2h is another skill that will do the same; the “bombard” morph of arrow spray from bow skill line is a great area immobilize that you can virtually spam to keep enemies away from you (even many delve and world bosses!); many classes have CC skills as well that you can take advantage of… DK, for example, early on has the first skill of earthen heart line that will have a similar effect as flame clench.  Use CC to your advantage especially against multiple enemies.

    6) always get the first strike of any combat.. And make it a fully charged heavy attack! Then CC… Dont open with CC if you can manage because it will buy you 2-3 seconds of free attacking.  Heavy attack then CC.  And against multiple enemies, after you use CC always kill the ranged enemies first.. Archers and mages are very dangerous since they can be difficult to get close to as combat starts and immediately start damaging you… Stun or knock them down, close the gap and kill them… Then move on to the melee enemies.

    7) you should unlock some healing skill as soon as possible… For stamina specs you are kind of limited to momentum (rally) from 2h, blood craze and bloodthirst from dw, vigor from pvp assault skill line and whatever class heals you may have access to + potions.  DK have dragon blood that does not scale its heal based on your max magicka; it scales on your health – more specifically how much health you are down from max.  Stamina nightblades have killers blade and mark target that also heal you when an enemy dies, which is useful.  Potions that heal you are essential for low level characters as well.  for magicka specs, resto is an obvious advantage for healing… Regeneration is pretty awesome for soloing and either morph works nicely.  Templars also have heals in class; nightblades have siphoning skills that heal as well.

    8) key skills should offer CC, area damage, single target damage and healing… Early on all you really need is the ability to hit a target with a heavy attack + 1-2 single target damage skills to kill it, and you can lean on potions for healing.  The rest of your skill slots are for ranking up skills and skill lines… As you progress you will need more useful skills in terms of utility and variety of effect.

    9) rank up everything in class and weapon skill lines… Magicka characters also rank up mages guild by collecting lorebooks… If you have issues finding lorebooks, google it.  There are tons of maps out there that show you where all the books are – being on console with no addon to show you in game isnt an excuse.  Fighters guild is easy to rank up for all characters; just kill daedra and undead.  By 50 you should have at least rank 6-7 of each… Mages guild you can finish by halfway through cadwell’s silver zones; fighters just takes time grinding zombies or skeletons somewhere once you hit 50.

    10) join guilds.  You can have 5 – a good trader, social and endgame guilds are nice to have and keep you busy working with others to complete content.  Asking for help is easy in your guilds, and with 5 to ask in, you can bet you will have people that want to help you when you need it.

    11) there is no such thing as a leveling build… Feel free to follow deltia and syphers leveling guides if you really want, but the reality is they are just suggestions on how to successfully survive while doing all of the things i have stated above.  There are dozens of approaches you can use… Just find what works for you.  And if you continue to struggle after trial and error… Come here and post to this thread and ask for help!  That is what we are here for!

    12) dont bother pvping until 15+ when you have a second bar…. And even then i wouldnt bother until 30+ when you actually have more skill points and ranks to be able to use all class, guild and armor skills and passives that would make you competitive.

    13) expand your inventory and bank!  Dont keep running back and forth to town every 10 minutes with a full inventory.  Also keep uograding your horse!  Do bag space first, then speed, then stamina.  You dont really need speed or stamina until you go to cyrodill and have to ride around that huge map.  The larger your bag the less time you have to keep going back to town to empty it…

    14) inventory management tips:  research every trait, every craft… Sell all white items you dont need to research…  Deconstruct everything else.  Refine all raw materials.  Only store refined materials, alchemy and provisioning ingredients and weapons/armor that have traits you need to research… And store them in your bank as much as possible.  If you are above the level of the refined materials you have saved up, just sell them to NPCs or guild stores if you have a trader; dont store low level materials you will never need.  Keep your inventory clear!

    15) how to deal damage efficiently… Your skills scale from the attributes that power them – magicka skills scale from max magicka, spell damage and spell crit… Stamina skills scale from max stamina, weapon damage and weapon crit.  If you are using magicka skills you should really be using a staff; stamina users should have dw, 2h, 1hs or bow.  Gear accordingly.  Do not try to use both or you WILL SUCK.  We call characters with stats evenly distributed and trying to be jack of all trades “hybrids” – and we know from over 2 years of play in an mmo with evolving game mehanics that hybrids are garbage.  Pick 1 attribute to focus on and use that stat for damage and healing; the other attribute is for utility and buffs that do not scale up with the attribute.  I should probably move his to #2 on the list because it is probably the singular most important and most basic mechanics knowledge… But i dont feel like renumbering this on my phone :)  hope you read this far!  if not… you are lazy and are doomed to failure!  muahahahahaha!  half kidding…  hope you read this far though :P

    ………………………

    if i think of something else i will update this later… You have more wuestions beyond what i have probided above please POST THEM HERE AND NOT IN YOUR OWN THREAD!!  Otherwise i will just keep merging them in here to keep our forums clean, which makes my thumbs tired on my iphone… Save my thumbs!  And if you didnt read this far because WORDS… I am not sure anyone can truly help you.  Lazy!  /slap!

    may the odds be ever in your favor.

    Magicka characters are more likely to survive when they’re brand new if they slot the Restoration Staff first before trying to find or level a Destro Staff. Self Heals especially on classes like the Dragonknight can mean the difference between life and death for low level new characters as the first few skills aren’t suited to healing.

    I would recommend moving point 8, the one about not grinding, further to the top. That is probably the most important one on the list.

    Hi, I really like this thread and it has enlightened me quite a bit. I have a Brenton Dragonknight, I use the staff of flame as weapon of choice. My gear is low level and easily damaged. I am level 27 now and I have a hard time leveling up. What can I do to improve this?

    Well, you don’t really need to repair your gear while leveling. The only things I would suggest is to get a decent weapon and familiarise yourself with damage skills available to you, so that you can just kill things and do quests efficiently.

    Can you elaborate on your “hard time leveling up”? That can encompass anything…users will need more information to provide any useful advice.

    Welcome to foundry!

    i wouldnt focus so much on a need to level up… Levels come as you complete content.  Like i said above, if it is your first character just play through the story and side quests as a solo game to advance your character’s skills.  The timing will be as you finish the first alliance story you should be at least to your mid 40s; by the end of coldharbour close to 50… If you saved fighters and mages guilds and harborage stories until 50+ you should get great xp and a bunch of skill points toward your further progression at that time.  Once you finish all of those quests should should be pretty close to cp50 or higher.  By that time you should also have enough crafting research completed to be able to make yourself decent gear.  Ignore the xp bar and just focus on your skill rankings for now.  You will hit 50 at the right time.

    I do exploring alot trying to improve my crafting, but my bags are constantly full because I want to improve some of the items that maybe holding me back because I can not toss the items I have collected. My quests line I can not find right away I may spend several hours running around before I pick up the right quest line. I am really lost right now. The quest I am on now is with Valess trying to get Eyeva back. But my character is to low to do the battle with Haskil. It takes me a long time to complete the leveling bar. I am learning my strong points as well as my weak points. So this thread has help me understand a little more. Thanks to all for the time and effort it is greatly appreciated.

    Well you are doing the mages guild quest – you should stop progressing that quest line for now and focus on the rest.  Mages and fighters guild quests move to each new zone’s guild hall after you complete each one, which gets confusing.  Just do the main story and other side quests; go back to do the fighters and mages guild quests after you hit 50 and have cleared all the zones… You can then skip around to each guild hall easier and you willbe leveled appropriately.

    and as for gear at early levels… Just research every trait you find, sell everything that is of white quality, decon everything that is green or blue that you dont wear… And spend gold to expand your bank and inventory every chance you get.  Store all your materials or sell them to NPCs… Dont hoard at low level because you will spend more time going back to town than you do actually playing.  Made me think of a few things so ill update my main post!

    Thank you for your fast respond. I think I have items to sell, deconstruct, or just junk all together to get the proper space I need. I feel alot more confident now since I know my direction. I like this game alot after playing Skyrim I had to get it. Just be patient with me when I start focusing I tend to get better. I need to find some good guild members and even join a guild just do not know anyone yet.

    For leveling a Magicka NB…what skills should I prioritize and add into my rotation? Bar 1 is a destro staff with swallow souls, the DoT that also grants 2 second speed boost, Magelight, Impale, and Cripple. Bar 2 is my close quarters shadow mage bar, with DW (I only have DW for the spell critical that my weapons give, I don’t use DW skills). On Bar 2 I have Lotus Fan, Dark Cloak, Concealed Weapons, Impale, and Swallow Souls. Its a really fun and versatile class, but I feel like my Bar 1 is missing some hitting power and I feel weaker when using my Bar 1 skills. Any rotation or skills that I should use instead?

    For a Stamina DK, I currently am at level 17 using 2H and Bow (but also have DW skills slotted). I have a couple questions on this one…first, do we have any spammable skills? Templar has Biting Jabs, Sorc has Mages Fury, and on my NB I can spam Swallow Souls a fair bit. Does DK get one in one of the weapon lines? Second, aside from green dragon’s blood, are there any skills in particular that I should work towards and definitely slot?

    I have been leveling the DK as a stamina damage dealer, but at endgame I may want to tank. Is it possible to level my DK to 50 through a hybrid of “damage/tankiness”? What I mean is, can I wear a combination of medium/heavy armor, have Bar 1 be Sword and Shield with tanky moves and some damaging moves and Bar 2 be 2H/DW/Bow for more damage? I know at endgame the two styles don’t mix but for leveling, can this be viable?

    The best advice that I received is go out and kill things. Set up your bars and experiment with the different active and passive abilities. Once you do that then you will be able to break it down to the ones that are best for your character. Exploring is the best trainer a player can give their character. When you feel your character’s strength and abilities then you will combine the right active and passive abilities based from exploring the world and what was most effective.

    if you are leveling a magicka nb you should have your weavable skills on your destro bar (i.e. Funnel) and your execute/sneak attack opener on your dw bar (impale/concealed).  I would put your buffs and aoe on your dw bar (siphoning strikes, magelight, sap essence) and your grim focus, magelight and other skills on your destro.  Another approach early on is to use resto as your buff/heal/execute bar and keep the destro bar the same as above.

    stam dk you can level with 2h mainly and skill it up as quickly as you can to get momentum so you have a heal.  Really just use heavy attacks once or twice on an enemy and you can finish them with executioner.  Use 1hs ransack to debuff an enemy and you can use reverberating bash as a stun… Bow offbar is great for bombard…  Much of that i said above in my opening post to this thread – points 7 and 8.

    Ignore endgame build set ups, use the skills that will help you survive the 1-50 experience. Cadwells Silver, Cadwells Gold, Wrothgar, Hews Bane, and Gold Coast will offer you plenty of experience to level the skills you want to use at “Endgame”.

    To point 7 I would recommend adding Blood Craze and Bloodthirt from the DW line, as those are two of the earliest healing options available to a stam character. They aren’t bursty, but they are better than nothing.

    Well… unfortunately you cant really heal as a stam build.  All heals (except vigor) are magicka based and will be gimp and inefficient.  But you could definitely be a tank with an easy swap to a dps build if you pick the right race.  Orc i would say is probably best for a templar than any other class as a dps due to the biting jabs skill being a melee primary damage source.

    And dont worry about skill respecs, it is mad cheap to just swap morphs of things (like 1000-1500 gold at max skill points).

    as for an orc, try and take advantage of the health racial as a tank focus… health regen builds can be interesting, if a bit niche.  At endgame for tanking or pvp i suggest going with a 5 piece black rose + 2 engine guardian/malubeth monster set + 2 piece dual wield/1hand shield vampires kiss with endurance jewelry…  all health regen enchants and max health + regen food…  with vigor + rally and a major health regen potion or skill buff you can reach massive regen numbers as an orc… like full heal in 5-6 seconds huge.  No need for a healer when you have that self sustain.

    anyway, just level 2h and bow to start like any stam build (as i noted above) to get that first stam heal unlocked in momentum and a good root/snare in bombard.  Once there you can just work on unlocking everything on a path to an endgame tank and dps build – by the time you clear cadwells gold you will have ample skill points for crafting and all you need for both roles.

    definitely decon everything you get as drops as you go to skill up all your crafts… only put skill points in them when you hit like level 30-40 and start having skill points left over from your skills and passives.

    you said you are on pc…  pc na?  I can make you some free starter gear if you want.  Just send me a message in game @mrowmrif2
