    Battlestaff (similar to Two-handed, but the style and abilities are different)
    Spears/Polearms/Pikes/Halberds, essentially battlestaffs. Should be an extended reach (7-10m range) weapon set with a focus on point blank aoe attacks (circular motions that damage all enemies around you) and bypassing enemy defenses (aka blocking).

    Where is the spear?

    I didn't bother to add it. However, the Battlestaff seems to support the use of spears... It's all a matter of perspective.

    Seriously, though. Templars get a magicka spear but not a real one? That's cray, as the kids say.

    I vote for Unarmed (claws to be more specific)... well werewolf is that kind skill line (play style) but because time limit not really usefully in group play.

    Unarmed, obvious old school staple of TES. A fencing style isn't very TES, but a 1H Only form is, thus as a form highly tactical, CC oriented fighting is doable. Also 1H And Spell, similar to 1H And Shield but for melee Caster DPS instead, I.e spellswords. Last but not least, Spears. Spears preferably as a new addition to both 2H and 1H skills, with 2H gaining increased range and block pen, and 1H getting the same for DW and 1H/Shield. 1H/Spell gets no benefit from weapon type.
    Bobbity Boop, this game might become poop, but I'll still play because I'm just a pile of goop!

    A wider range of runes I'd imagine will be craft able with spell crafting... at least I hope it is. But otherwise, one handed sword with no shield, unarmed, and spears-- not the throwable kind, though perhaps as a skill? But I mean like two handed spears, spear and shield. Etc.

    Spell & Sword

    In older Elderscroll games, the spell sword was awesome. You could say playing a sorcerer with S&S is the same, but I'd think more along the lines of how Skyrim did it. Possibly it would be a magical tanking tree (ward instead of shield) or just a modest DPS line with some defense/spell power boosts.

    Also Spears and Unarmed!

    I love the idea of being able to throw down fisticuffs style :smiley: and why not make a skill line for it? I feel like that's way easier than creating new weapons (as much as I would love those) and at least it doesn't need to be anywhere near as powerful as fighting with a traditional weapon which stops it from becoming overpowered.

    Still, I believe it bears mentioning @mr.scottkenyonub17_ESO that cross bows technically should never come to ESO as they only made their first in-game and possibly in lore appearance in Skyrim, meaning the technology is more advanced than it should be in ESO's timeline

    I think spear would be nice to have.

    Perhaps while we're at it, two more staff types such as a poison staff or a disease staff.

    May give woodcrafters three or so more things to craft / research.

    Runes... or...

    a Shadow Staff sub-set of Resto Staves. Rename the overall category Spirit Staves. Resto would stay as-is and Shadow would get damage/healing hybrid abilities with a similar design to the current resto skills, but with a more offensive/debuffing flavor.

    -Force Siphon's shadow version could provide the major maim debuff- one morph could cause the target to receive more damage, the other could provide the lesser defile.
    -Regeneration could be a DoT that causes the target to damage itself when it attacks.
    -Blessing of Protection would be a short range single target damage attack that also damage the caster- one morph could be a conal attack the other could do more damage but cost more health.
    Etc.
    Main: Breton Nightblade "Shadow Cleric" (Sustained Damage/offhealer) 5L/2H - Resto + S&B
    Alt: Argonian Dragonknight (Stam DoTs/Tank) 5H/2M - S&B + Bow
    Alt: Nord Templar Berserker (Rawr) 5M/2H - Dual Wield + Two Hander
    Alt: Altmer Sorceror (Pewpew) 7L - Destro + Resto
