Loved the templar healer to death in beta, thought i'd change it up abit now though. Going Templar Tank in the Aedric Spear skill line. And a Sorcerer with Restoration Staff for healing. My vote in this poll was Templar though since that's my main.
Imperial Nightblade Tank. Because it's way more fun than Templar Tank.
Nightblade Tank?? How this possible?? Using shield??
I haven't played nightblade much (I spent around a single minute looking through a few skills in beta...) but apparently a nightblade tank sorta works.
The idea is that you use the siphoning skill line for some self heals and things, which really helps your survivability. Then, of course, 1h&s doesn't hurt.
I also am trying a NB tank trying to use the shadow tree for mitigation and avoidance. The problem I am having is with groups and just plain DPs. Hopefully I figure it out soon. Edit: wrote wrong class
Rolled a Dunmer Sorc on Daggerfall, but playing it like a Thane from DAoC. Rocking mostly heavy armor with medium and light thrown in just to keep the skills going up.
Mainly use dual wield, but swap to my destruction staff as needed. The spells are amazingly fun and I try to keep everything melee/AoE focused with one nuke for finishing or burst.
Already working up my tanking line of skills and really liking this. I will admit that my alt will be a Nightblade though, they lack synergies but is so damn fun for solo play. Should also be great gankers in PvP.
Always played rogue-like mage hybrid in previous TES series (Sneak, Marksman, Illusion, Destruction, Alteration) and came to conclusion that Sorcerer class is almost completely incapable of getting the advantage of Sneak Shadow/Assassination skills. In other way, going with Nightblade seem like you lose close to nothing in magic abilities, you still have Destruction-staff and Mages Guild skill trees that are NOT class exclusive. Correct me if I'm wrong, I'd appreciate that. (No, I didn't go the "summon-for-distraction" route ever).

I started with a Templar, cause i like the skill trees. I start with the dmg skills and later i will go a little bit more to the healing skills. Cause i play it with my brother and he play a DK tank, so at this time we do not really need the healing stuff, but i think later we will need it.
In Beta, I played a Nightblade and really enjoyed playing with a Bow and Stealth.
My first character I made was an Argonian Templar in Daggerfall Cov. I got him to lvl 6 before I decided I wasn't enjoying it. I was doing sword and board and half and half DW and Healing. Maybe I was split too thin, but really what happened was I went against what I initially wanted to play which was a straight up S&B + Healing. For some reason, I got caught up in a guide or two, and they all said Dawn's Wrath is the beez-neez. Oh well... I abandoned this character.
So then I made a new character and was determined to go against the grain. So, I made a Redguard Sorcerer that uses 2-Handed weapons and both Light, Medium, and Heavy armor. I'm loving it.
I went Dragon Knight, using Draconic skill line and Heavy/Medium armor mix. Sword/Shield for weaponry. Finding solo to be fairly painful especially for the 1v1 boss fights, seems to be getting stronger getting closer to lvl 20.
