    2. Answer other people’s question only if you you know the answer. Wrong or unclear answers will be removed. Try to provide a source.
    3. This is not a thread for discussion or smalltalk. Anything that isn’t a question, an answer or the opening post will be removed.

    Do the dual wield passive abilities “ruffian” and “twin blade and blunt” only grants bonuses while dual wield weapons are equipped? On the TF site it says that they do, but on the in-game description it doesn’t say there is any requirement.  Also, does the Dawn’s Wrath passive “restoring spirit” grant the cost reduction to all skills/spells or only those in the Dawn’s Wrath line? it doesn’t say that it requires it to be a Dawn’s Wrath skill but I’m just not sure.

    Thank you most kindly

    Weapon passives ALWAYS only apply if you are wielding that weapon. Period.

    Restoring Spirit reduces all costs, class, weapon, and ultimate.

    If you spam Wall of Elements, does the damage stack?

    It looks like its not a DOT i was thinking it would work similar to Grand Healing.

    I would like to play a DK Tank PvE Bosses and stuff… but im sick of seeing always the same races.
    Id love to play an Orc but they are never the first choice in any thread or guide. :((
    Can anyone suggest a guide which needs not too big adjustments for an Orc? :)
    Or has anyone thoughts about TankOrcs, why they are so rare?
    Thank you most kindly

    Flawless Dawnbreaker… Does the weapon damage increase only apply to light and heavy attacks, weapon skill abilities, or both? And what is the best way to level the fighters guild up to 10? Does having an ability on the action bar help? The tool tip says level it by killing undead and deadra, where is the best places to farm them in the DC?

    Orcs are rare for two main reasons:

    1. Most players prefer the human appearance which the Daggerfall Covenant has an abundance of (many people don’t want to play as a green skinned monster)

    2. The racials for orcs at this time aren’t very good for tanking, because one of their racials, “swift” gives bonuses to sprinting.  This means that orcs only get two usable racial passives, as opposed to the bretons or redguards who get three passives that a tank can make use of.  Imperials are possibly the tankiest race at this time, so I’m sure many players who tank have selected them.

    An orc isn’t a terrible choice, however, and if they are your favourite race I think you should play as one.  Racial abilities may become better balanced in the future.  Best of luck.

    1. What is the difference between Veteran Points and Exp at 50+?

    2. Can you grind at Vet ranks? Any suggestions where? Best grind spot in Cold Harbour?

    The first ever emperors/empresses of the different campaigns were posted by Zenimax: http://elderscrollsonline.com/en/news/post/2014/04/03/first-emperors-and-cyrodiils-map?ref=rss

    I am on EU Scourge Campaign I thought but we don’t even have that server mentioned. Am I accidentally on NA or something or have a lot of EU servers just not gotten emperors yet? I’m so confused D:

    I’m looking at the shielding spells Circle of Protection from the fighters guild, and Steadfast Ward from the resto staff line. This comparison has led to me to question which would be the better choice to bring to the table. The Circle is a stamina based armour and spell resistance of 170 for 17 seconds (doubled for undead/deadra), the Ward is a magikca based 83 point (upto 300% from damage status) damage shield. Ignoring for the moment that the ward is single target and the circle is a small aoe, which is the stronger bonus ? Do armour and damage shield equate on a point for point basis ? Does a damage shield collapse early if beaten too hard or does it subtract it’s shield value from the incoming damage for the entire duration ? Does the armour value from circle ignore the fact that the tank very likely has soft capped armour rating, or does it give the tank much less protection than might be readily apparent ? Perhaps this isn’t so simple, or maybe I’m making it harder than it needs to be ..

    Hello. Flawless Dawnbreaker Increases both normal attacks/weapon skill abilities damage (keep in mind those also include healing from resto staff!).

    The only way to level Fighters Guild is killing those guys, best places are different dungeons all over Tamriel I believe.

    As stated only the ones active get XP, but you can make use of that by switching to the other when turning in a Quest.

    I noticed when i tried to research a trait in clothing the item that had the trait was not destroyed, and i coun desconstruct it afterwards without canceling the research. In beta it was not like this. Is this a bug or a new feature?

    What does a DC character have to do to get to Wayrest?

    At what level would this typically occur?
