ESO Character Building is the newest addition to The Skyrim Blog.

The purpose of this group is to create Character Builds which will provide the player with new and unique ways to play The Elder Scrolls: Online. 

Since this group is new, you can expect many changes to come over the next few weeks/months. As the game changes, so will this group!

Before posting anything, please check out our Rules Page.

ESO Character Building Think Tank

If you just want to talk about build ideas, need help or want to help out others with their builds, this is the place to come.

If you want to share some of the neat combos/tricks you've discovered, share them in the Tips and Tricks threads - there's one for each class.

Got it up for you, Bats. Thanks for reminding me, I've got to add a ton of traits to it

Comment by Batman on Sunday

speaking of links can we put the compendium on the front page?

Comment by Vileo Sufora on Sunday

I feel like the external link to ESO-Fashion covers that, but that's just me.

Comment by Ponty on Sunday

What do you guys think of adding a 'Fashion Corner' (somewhat akin to the Skyrim armour combo catalog) once the dyes update comes out at the start of August?

Comment by Ponty on June 27, 2014 at 3:16am

We've got some stuff planned to generate some activity in the group from both blog regulars and people outside the site. I've got a build coming up as well - the 'Radiant Champion' - want to get some PvP experience under my belt before I post it though.

Hey all! Probably won't be able to get my hands on ESO for a while, so I'll stick around and see what's happening with you!

Yes yes good. This game has been taking up like all of my time. .-.

I have it Pre-ordered on the Xbox One, and I might play a build for my first on there. May not though so I don't get any spoilers besides the ones in the trailer videos
