Elder Scrolls Online provide amazing character customization options, and any class can be played any way you want to. Obviously, some classes are suited better for certain purposes than the others, and we have decided to define the best builds and roles for each of the ESO Classes. 

We have decided to stick to the most important aspects of each character, and most likely, we will not focus on alternative gear options and specific Dungeon/Encounter tweaking. Our guides should give you a basic understanding of each build and should be treated as a starting point. From there we encourage you to experiment with your character and try out different skill sets and gear options. After all, this is what makes this game so exciting.
