Tanking in this game, there is one important aspect that is basically different than in most MMO games. A player will do well to remember them. In Tamriel world, when talking about tanking the first class that pops up in people’s is Dragon Knight. If you like the tank role, here is some useful tips for your Dragon Knight.

Active Blocking

In this game, blocking is an active process. It doesn’t simply mean you will have a certain percentage to block an attack when equipping a shield. For it to even be more effective, you actually have to physically block it. If not, it’s just another armor and attribute boost.

A good tank will always block the attack, rather than soak up the damage with armor, after they have tanked or are tanking something. That is what it means to actively block.

If your group is having problems with a certain boss, it alos usually means that your tank is not blocking a certain direct damage effect or AoE that, otherwise, can be effectively avoided. Block still works even if the origin of the damage is magical in nature. By using block, even a Sorcerer can mitigate incoming damage by using block.

The red circles of death is another thing you should really watch out for, especially as a tank in dungeons. The bosses usually have this primed for special attack that hit for a lot of damage, thus you really need to watch out for these in dungeons. At the very least, block them, if you can’t really avoid them.

It is very easy to tank a boss. Aside from solid tank build, it’s as simple as having Puncture on your ability bar. When someone managed to draw aggro, or at any time you feel like doing so, use it.

Dungeon Abilities:

  1. Puncture morphed into Pierce Armor
  2. Dark Talons morphed into Choking Talons
  3. Molten Weapons morphed into Molten Armaments
  4. Obsidian Shield morphed into Igneous Shield
  5. Dragon Blood morphed into Green Dragon Blood

Skill rotation:

  1. Use Obsidian Shield.
  2. As you are about to connect with the first mob, use Molten Weapons so as to benefit from the Critical Strike buff.
  3. Puncture the first mob you meet.
  4. Root everyone in place and debuff them by Choking Talons.
  5. When your group mates will start charging to rebuff the critical strike buff, use Molten Weapons.
  6. So as to draw aggro on yourself, Puncture everything you can.
  7. You will need to start blocking at this point. And to help your healer, use Dragon Blood.
  8. Keep using Puncture on mobs that are not aggroing you.
  9. Rotate between Molten Weapons – Obsidian Shield – Choking Talons while blocking, and keep using Puncture on mobs that are not on you.

This should work perfectly with mobs coming in groups but might not that good for gold farming purpose. However, when dealing with bosses, they are too powerful and using Talons of them will prove useless as they can’t be affected. Use Dragon Blood, and try to conserve your magicka instead for when and if you are in a bind. All the while rotating between Molten Weapons and Obsidian Shield, and also blocking or doing light attacks.

Addons

There are people who do not want to use addons for their MMO, but they are, in fact, essential for leveling faster in this case. It is easy to apply and use them in Elder Scrolls Online.

All you need to do is to install a program called Minion. As soon as the program starts, select Elder Scrolls Online being the game you wish to find addons for. Install the items listed below. Take note that the program will do the installing for you and the addons will work with no problems thereafter. Most likely, an error window will open when you start the game. You can either dismiss ir close it, as the addons will work just fine. The addons can be applied to all class.

  1. Foundry Tactical Combat
    This mod not only give you more approximate values of your and your enemies’ health, magicka and stamina, it also displays your damage dealt. You can also see how many seconds you have left on a buff or debuff and it’s just fantastic. Debuffs are shown below the NPC’s you are attacking, and buffs below your attributes bar.
  2. Multi-Quest Tracker
    This displays all of your active quests, thus allowing you to have a list anywhere on the screen you chose to move it to. To move through the quests and make them active, use the default “T”.
  3. ZrMiniMap
    This is considered by many as the most useful Mod for this game. It enables you to see all of the things that are on the map and find them more easily, by giving you a minimap. This also works great with Skyshards.

    However if you are doing PvP in Cyrodiil, the only place where you can PvP, you should be aware of a small issue with this mod. This mod bugs out the map in a way that you will not be able to zoom it out, therefore, you will not be able to use Transit Shrines. Disable this mod and use the Reload UI button in the Addons settings if you are doing PvP.

  4. Skyshards
    This is a must-have mod. It is necessary to find all the skyshards in every map that you are leveling on. If you are having difficulty finding them, there are also tips as to where these shards are on the map.

There are other addons available and many other programs out there. But the above are some of the most efficient we have found so far.

Recommended Race For Play In Elder Scrolls Online: DragonKnight

If I were to be asked what race to play in Elder Scrolls Online: Dragonknight today in the here and now, I would definitely recommend the Khajiit.

For one thing, they are naturally a stealthy and agile race, which can definitely come in handy during a battle or if you are just trying to lift something off of someone or from somewhere. Which can also make them the right beast for assassin work.

Also their ability to refine moon sugar into skooma ,which when consumed in large drinkable amounts, can cause your character to run extremely fast. This seems like nothing but a great benefit to me especially since the Khajiit can function relatively more normal under skooma’s influence than other races can.

Khajiit

I also love how overall they prefer to use their own built-in weapons , aka their claws, rather than other weapons which they tend to despise. This is a great benefit seeing as with a built-in weapon, you are always carrying it with you no matter what! Another great built-in ability that they have developed that is perfect for being stealthy is night vision. This is a great asset to be able to see your enemy coming when they can’t see you.

According to eso guide, another thing to use to your advantage is the many varied appearances and abilities that a Khajiit can have depending on the phase of the moon when it (the Khajiit) was born. This can be an advantage in a group of Khajiit seeing as some of them will be stronger than others or the ability to be faster than others. Teamwork would need to be applied here to make the most of these differences.

In my opinion if you want to have an obvious advantage over the other races in the game then you would pick to play as a Khajiit. The choice just seems that simple to me.

Introduction to the Elder Scrolls Online Dragonknight

As the release date for the highly anticipated MMORPG Elder Scrolls Online draws closer, information continues to stream out from developer Bethesda Softworks. The latest in the string of announcements is information regarding the playable Dragoknight class.

Like most character eso classes, the Dragoknight is not locked into just one role thanks the Elder Scrolls Online’s freeform progression system; equipping different weapons and utilizing different skills allows the Dragonknight to fill different roles depending on what is needed. For example, giving the Dragonknight a sword and a shield and focusing on your health attribute permits him to become what is known as a “tank,” enabling him to take control of enemy threat and mitigate damage. Alternatively, swapping out your shield for a two-handed sword enables you to focus on offense rather than defense.

While Bethesda has not released much information with regard to the abilities that the Dragonknight will have, there are a few special abilities that are currently known. So far, four skills for the Dragonknight have been revealed: Fiery Reach, Slam, Spiked Armor and Dragon Armor. Each of these skills helps to control enemies or mitigate damage, which can be especially useful for a Dragonknight looking to play as a tank.

Fiery Reach is the first known special ability and is similar to the Death Knight’s Death Grip ability from World of Warcraft. Fiery Reach will pull the enemy towards you will simultaneously stunning the enemy and lighting him on fire, dealing damage over time.

Fiery Reach

Slam will most likely be your Dragonknight’s go-to move, as not only does it stun an enemy, it also pushes enemies away from you and interrupts whatever spell or ability they were preparing to use. However, you cannot use Slam repeatedly, as it requires a heavy amount of stamina. It’s a good interrupt skill but if you want to be making gold as a dragonknight.

Spiked Armor is more defensive than offensive. When this ability is active, your defense goes up and enemies get a taste of their own medicine, as Spiked Armor reflects a portion of an enemy’s damage right back at him.

Dragon Armor is the Dragonknight’s Ultimate skill, first available at Level 5 and requiring a full Ultimate bar to unleash. When Dragon Armor is active, your entire skin turns to molten lava and you deal massive amounts of damage to any enemy unlucky enough to be standing next to you. Despite only lasting for a few seconds, this spell can easily turn the tide of battle.

This introduction to the Dragonknight serves as just a small glimpse into the overall character; with many more skills left to reveal, fans can rest assured that these skills are only the tip of the iceberg for the Dragonknight class.
