With free, I mean that you don't have to purchase the pets with crowns at the crown store. But for the most of them, you need access to some DLC's. Travel to the north of Bangkorai and not far away from Hallin's' Stand, you will find the public dungeon Razak's Wheel. Here you have to complete the quest "The Mystery of Razak". To obtain the Quest, you have to examine a dead Imperial Researcher which you can find in front of the Razak's wheel dungeon.
But don't let it stress you out.
This is an Elder Scrolls game, afterall, which means your character customization is much more natural than just selecting a premade class, like in other MMOs. Choosing the right class gets you started down the right road for you, but there's still plenty of room for customization later.
What you choose to do in the gamehow you fight and what you fight withwill change and refine your skills as you play.
However, your class choice does give you access to three unique skill trees that you can choose to invest in if you want to. Or you can just stick with the plethora of neutral skill trees for weapons, armors, and races. So let's get started on the right foot and pick the right class for you!
Dragonknight A weapons-focused brawler that loves to bash facesand occasionally light them on fire with magic. Skill Trees - Ardent Flame: Embrace your inner-dragon to burninate all of your enemies with flame weapons, breaths, and spikeable banners.
Pro Tips - The hearty racesRedguard, Orc, Nord, and Imperialall have access to powerful racial skills that'll boost your survivability in extended periods of combat. For damage dealing, Dark Elves' dual-wielding and fire damage bonuses are very appealing.
If you want to melt face, invest in Magicka and spam those Ardent Flame spells! Templar A light-wielding knight that wades into battle with tons of tools and plenty of playstyle options. Skill Trees - Aedric Spear: Use a burning spear to sweep large areas and wreak havoc on the battlefield.
Argonians also make excellent healers and Imperials make excellent tanks. Even if you're focused on dealing damage, you should still try to support your allies, because you're just so good at it!
Sorcerer A destructive spell-caster who wields all manner of combat magic to demolish their foes. Skill Trees - Storm Calling: Lash out with lightning, but keep it close to protect you if you're forced into close-range combat.
Different from Templars, though, is that the Dark Elves also fit in nicely here with their bonus to fire damage. Nightblade A sneaky assassin that wants to avoid a fair fight and, instead, ambush enemies when they least suspect it.
Like, forever. Skill Trees - Assassination: Pick one target that you want to die, and make sure that they doas quickly and painfully as possible.
Pro Tips - Wood Elves and Khajiit both get nice bonuses to stealth, making them a perfect choice if you want to emphasize the sneakier side of Nightblades. The survival perks from any of the burlier races will help keep this flimsy class alive and swinging.
More than any other class, they have few free points to invest into Health.
So don't to expect to be taking hits on the frontlines without some help. But light armor is best for spell-heavy builds and medium armor is best for weapon-heavy builds.
Have Fun! I know at least one of you just skipped straight to the end, hoping for an easy answer. Well, here you go! These are a few of my favorite options, ready for plagiarizing!
As the most effective healer in the land, you'll be greeted with cheers wherever you go. But don't take my word for it!
