The Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing video game released for PC April 4, 2014 and console PS4 and Xbox1 June 9, 2015 by Zenimax Online Studios. And now the The Elder Scrolls Online Gold Edition is coming out for a PC, PS4, Xbox One on September 9th.
There are several good things to know when choosing a race and class. The first thing you should do when deciding that you want to be is figure out what play style you wish to spend your time on Once that happens you can start to eliminate choices that do not fit your play style. Any racial passives which only help by granting bonuses to leveling a weapon or armor type provide only short term gains and will not aid you during end game play. Do not worry your character choice can always change as you figure out what play style you really enjoy playing.
Gameplay in The Elder Scrolls Online: Gold Edition:
Once of the most important racial bonuses people should start looking when choosing a race are bonuses to magic, stamina, and health and in some cases regeneration of those while in combat. I find that these passives are highly valuable because there is no situation in the game, including the champion system, where you can increase your overall attributes for your character no matter the situation.
Another important decision is which faction you should play. There are three factions; the Aldmeri Dominion, Ebonheart Pact, and Daggerfall Covenant. These factions are groups of people with similar goals, causes, or philosophy for which they are fighting to be the main ruling faction for the Empire. Each alliance has a chosen leader for which the players of the community fight for every day in Cyrodiil PvP to bring their faction glory.
Players will be given the choice for each character they create and the faction that they choose will determine who they will be able to group with in the game since players can only group with their own faction. Each faction has three races from which you can choose to play with. However if you buy the Adventurers Pack/Explorers Pack, players will be able play any race with any faction.
As players level their characters, achieve goals in the Guilds, as well as complete Main Story, they begin to clear content in the world. Players gain an incredible number of available bonuses, passives and skills they can use in their adventures. This chapter contains Skill Lines and Morphs for:

Equipment in the game is in many ways the most influential when it comes to creating a character with a specific play style. There is an incredible number of ways for which you as a player can direct your player style. There are several different types of equipment for which a player can use; Armor, Weapons, Jewelry, Shields, and disguises/costumes. Disguises, costumes and guild tabards are merely cosmetic and will not be discussed.
Equipment and Gear and be purchased at vendors, crafted, picked up from quests, or found throughout the world. Many players will “build” their character attempting to improve stats like attributes, critical values, resistances, or damage power.
Top 10 Tips for Starting Characters:
1) Make sure that 1 ability of every class skill line is on your ability bar to level your class skills while questing, to unlock all future abilities for your class.
2) Wear at least 1 medium, 1 heavy, and 1 light piece of armor, to unlock the active abilities for each armor type and all passives.
3) Start the Fighters Guild, Mages Guild, and Undaunted
4) Commit a crime to unlock the Legerdemain skill line
5) Buy a horse as fast as you can and take riding lessons
6) Collect as many pieces of armor and glyphs as you can, and deconstruct them all to level your
crafts when you go to town.
7) Start researching traits as soon as possible. Important traits first if you can.
8) You can use your mail as inventory space by mailing items to others and having them return it
so you don’t have to keep going to town so often.
9) Farm all raw nodes and materials and sell them to make some quick money since your refinement isn’t
10) Find a great guild to do content and ask questions or just ask questions in zone.
Guilds are by far, some of the best features in the game allowing you to meet great players and get
a sense of the great community.
