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.

The future of the Elder Scrolls Online and the ESO CB

When I first started hyping ESO on this site, I heard a lot of complaints about the class system, and that was a lot of peoples' reasons for not wanting to sink the money in and buy ESO. While this…Continue

I will play ESO, once the oayment either changes to B2P, buy the game once, and play forever, or at least, they lower the fee to five to ten dollars per month. Another thing they should add is an in game ltem, like EVE Online, where you get it, and you get a month free. You can either get it as rare (1% chance) loot, or by paying a large amount of gold, say, 1 million gold at the most, 1 hundred thousand at the least.

When it's done I've actually basically done the writing and screenshots, I wanna get a video done though which I still need to get some solo and dungeon footage for.

So Ponty when do we get a glimpse of your Radiant Champion? I'm excited to see how it has turned out.
Comment by Vileo Sufora on July 27, 2014 at 2:15pm

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 July 26, 2014 at 9:30pm

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

Comment by Vileo Sufora on July 26, 2014 at 8:54pm

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

Comment by Ponty on July 26, 2014 at 8:46pm

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 4:16am

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.

Comment by Jason on June 27, 2014 at 2:33am
Excited to see the advice subsections. Can't wait to see more builds
Comment by Keniry on April 22, 2014 at 8:48am

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!
