Greetings and thank you for reading.

I am hoping someone could help out an old man who recently purchases ESO. The bulk of my gaming experience came during the days of simplistic rpg's with few buttons to press. So naturally, this game is thoroughly and utterly confusing.
I have been reading and watching as many different guides and tutorials as I can find over the last few days. The first problem I've noticed is that the vast majority of these are either: 1. Outdated or 2. Produced (whether consciously or subconsciously) with the assumption that the target audience has an understanding of the game, knowledge of end game gear, enchants, professions, etc., and/or end game content.
The few guides I have found that would seem to be geared towards new players with zero understanding of the game (such as myself) are, of course, guides which must be purchased.
What I am looking for is some advice on building the "right" character/class based on my goals of the game. I enjoy playing good old fashioned melee (either 2h or 1h/shield) characters. I have no preference as to either using melee abilities that cost magicka or melee abilities that cost stamina. My goals for the game are to simply enjoy the story and leveling process, questing and perhaps some pvp at the end. I do not plan on grouping, nor do I desire to have a spec that is wtfbbqpwn leet dps min/max'ed.
Remember, I'm an old dude and some times us old dudes need our hands held. So any advice that be broken down into level ranges (i.e. 1-10, 11-20, 21-30, etc.) would be invaluable. Proper allocation of attribute points per level range, and skill points per level range would be appreciated, as well as any other advice you think an old, frustrated gamer raised on Zelda on NES would need.
I thank you all in advanced. Cheers
