    Nightblade Vampire and Templar. Although recently, I've found playing a sorcerer with the destruction Staff skills to be quite entertaining. Warden sucks. Too slow and boring, though I think the theme is great for Bosmer characters. Dragonknight is just meh for me.

    I don't have a favourite, I've played and got 1 of each class spec (stam and mag) and had a lot of fun on all of them.
    From tank DK, healer Templar, ganking nb, mag sorc etc I've played them all.

    Actually not played Magden yet.

    Think in Pvp I have most fun on stamblade.

    PVE is hard to say for me personally which class I like the most.

    I think this has got to be some of the most fun you can have in ESO with your pants on.

    the sheer amount of sneaky, mobility, and tricky CC you have access to just makes it such a fun time.

    Nightblade is my favorite for a couple of reasons. It was my first class I made. Also, I just like stealthy characters in general, and I find the Nightblade's skill set far more fun and satisfying to use than any other class, especially magblade.

    They sort of gimped the visual Warden style (which is otherwise pretty cool) with that unnatural-looking laser beam connecting you to your Betty (WORST VISUAL EFFECT EVER).

    With some tweaks to animations and particle effects though (make the Betty effect like a softer arcane leaf swirl glow around you and keep the effect strength on the Betty more or less but LOSE THE BEAM) I could enjoy playing a Warden.

    I'm sure some clever way to buff Magicka Warden DPS and some general bug fixes (Maturation passive, etc.) are incoming.

    Nightblade
    From a PvE point of view:

    Nightblade, closely followed by my DK. I have a Stamblade and a Magblade. My Magblade I even play as a tank and sometimes as a healer (full Worm + SPC) in 4-man-stuff.

    Most versatile class for PvE (group- and soloplay) and PvP in my eyes. The only difference after Morrowind is now, that I damned enjoy to play my stamblade as DD. Stamina DD is such a fun now and imho it's the only playstyle where you still experience the so called "fast paced combat" in ESO.

    Most boring class to play -> magSorc. If magicka builds wouldn't have the advantage to play all three roles at least for 4-man-stuff by just changing gear with a click for Dressing Room (and playing sorctank and healer is some kind of fun sometimes and shortens queue times for pledges in the lfg tool by a large amount), I would have converted my Altmer MagSorc to a Redguard StamSorc months ago.

    I choose none.

    Warden is too offensively neutered for my tastes.

    Templar has been amputated for the sake of PVP balance. So has nightblade.

    DK has also been neutered. Sorc, while not being exactly great at tanking, remains fairly good in a blocktank capacity.

    Thing is? I hate -all- these options. God forbid we have a blood-knight equivilent with a active rotation.

    Therefor I simply dont play. I tried to get back into the game with warden, but it's ZOS attempting to bend even healtanks to the blocktank mold.

    To me, the measure of a man is whether or not he fights for his principles. It does not matter if you never had a chance to begin with. The deck could be stacked, the game rigged against you. You fight to the bitter end, because it is worth fighting for.

    I find it pretty hard to choose really.

    My main stamsorc is kind of nice, but I don't like the sorcerer skills except for streak and surge. There's pretty much no good stamina morphs on the sorc so you're left with what other skill lines have to offer, which kind of sucks.

    I like the playstyle of my Magplar, but currently in the process of respeccing it to stamplar, to try that out as well, as I really don't like to play light armored. Because you're sloooooow as hell, low stamina pool, and can sprint for like 2 seconds. And i don't like mounts, so you just feel sluggish moving around as light armored, and can roll dodge or block once or then you're out of stamina.

    All I know is that I like good mobility, so movement speed, and charge skills is a must. But havn't really found my perfect setup yet, but the stamsorc comes pretty close.

    DK and NB i recently just started to level, so I can't really say anything until i hit max level and tried all the abilities.

    Warden i never played though.

    Warden because of my bear companion as a lone wolf.
    Plus it suits well with my Nord character along with winter abilities .
    Also I can be a stam-healer if I want to :P

    I love my tankplar. I can heal all day, take a ton of damage and dish out a fair bit. Great for PVE.


    For PVP, I love magblade. A lot of people choose stamblades which will be reflected in this poll, but magblade is the hardest class/version to play and the most rewarding when you survive and rez your team.

    I barely come across any magblades in Cyrodil because literally every other class/version is easier to play.
