1.The type of player that likes to fight, ready to bash and smash opponents in close quarters combat?
2.The type of player that prefers to use stealth and ranged combat attacks, avoiding close combat if possible?
3.The type of player that enjoys using magic spells for offense and defensive purposes?

If you’re the first type of player (bash and smash), you’ll most likely be playing a Dragonknight or Templar.For you, the best Elder Scrolls Online Race is either:

And possibly:
