Advice for first character.

so as im waiting for the 32GB update to finish i thought id come here and ask you guys some things :)

first of all, my class.

my life as it is, doesnt allow me to play for hours and do raids and sieges like i used to, a few years ago.
so i will most probably play solo. a couple hours per day with frequent breaks.

what i want from my class is:
-i want to kill things really fast in PvE. (from what i've read NB is the best at this, or is it Sorc?)
-i want to be able to stay AFK in random places, when RL calls. (afaik all classes can stay in sneak right? but bosmer/khajit have bonus)
-i want to be able to do some RvR, while solo. meaning, when i come across some siege or zerg fight, to be able to get some action then escape (i think that would be a NB archer?)
-and i also want my class to generally be quick. i want to be able to escape easily and move around the battlefield quickly.

correct me if i'm wrong. and give me your suggestions.

thanks!

    Yep, you want a khajiit or bosmer nightblade dual-wield or two-hand and bow

    Templar is a really easy one to level and has the nice advantage of having lots of heals available without a resto staff. Dragonknight is a very powerful and versatile class. Sorcerers can do a lot of damage, but currently they're a little more restricted then the others. I've yet to play a nightblade, but I hear their good.



    Q: i want to kill things really fast in PvE. (from what i've read NB is the best at this, or is it Sorc?)
    A: PVE is easy. Most classes can handle this. My favorite is Dragonknight, but Templar is good at this as well. Sorcerer might take a little more work, but can do some pretty decent stuff when combined with weapon skills. I've solo'd a lot of group bosses with my Sorcerer.

    Q: i want to be able to stay AFK in random places, when RL calls. (afaik all classes can stay in sneak right? but bosmer/khajit have bonus)
    A: I do that all the time with all my characters. Sure, some classes/races are sneakier then others, but it's doable by about everybody.

    Q:i want to be able to do some RvR, while solo. meaning, when i come across some siege or zerg fight, to be able to get some action then escape (i think that would be a NB archer?)
    A: Sorcerer is THE master of Running Away; with their spammable Bolt Escape, they can be across the field before you blink. Nightblades are super sneaky. So it's a matter if you want to streak away like lightning, or sneak quietly into the shadows.

    Q: i also want my class to generally be quick. i want to be able to escape easily and move around the battlefield quickly.
    A: See above.

    Since you want to be nimble and quick, I'd say either Sorcerer or Nightblade. The thing about Sorcerer is they can get toggle-heavy, but they can do a lot of damage, have great magic management, and with Critical Surge, they can be gods when in crowds of enemies, especially if you go melee. I don't have a lot of experience with Nightblades, but I know they're quiet, fast, and deadly when paired with a bow.

    Yea sounds like your going to want a khajit archer or a sorc (prob altmer) for your PvP stuff.

    In terms of PvE I found it easier to nuke mobs with my sorcerer. NBs are great damage but a little squishy (unless going with a siphoning specific build).

    All in all don't worry about sneaking, it's almost pointless in this game (keyword: almost), except for the occasional gank in PvP. With that said Sorcs bolt escape (aka streak) is the probably the best evasion skill in the game.
