    What are the current plans for stamina variation classes? StamSorc, Stamplar and StamDK need serious upgrade and class identity.

    Hello!

    My question would be regarding the medium armor skill Evasion and its morphs.

    With the upcoming changes on the PTS, this skill is going to fall even further behind the curve in terms of cost/effectiveness.

    Every part of this skill can be obtained from multiple sources now, including the snare removal and immunity of Shuffle.

    Can we expect Evasion and its morphs to receive a check, to bring them more in line with abilities(most notably the reworked double take) that offer similar effects?

    Also will you look at the Elude morph as it currently doesnt offer anything substantial to make it worth picking it up over Shuffle.

    Are you looking at balancing certain heavy armor sets? that make the balance specificly between stambuilds in medium vs heavy armor very partial to heavy armor builds and have been for some time now
    Altmer Sorceror, magicka
    Bosmer Nightblade, stamina.
    Imperial Templar, stamina
    Redguard Warden, stamina

    Question do you plan to discuss how you are going to keep play how you want as the main stay? If so what are your plans to flesh out playstyle/roles to be allowed in all parts of the game including endgame and PvP?

    The Necromancer as it stands does not have permanent pets, which is arguably contrary to ES lore when the average NPC is perfectly capable of it.

    Given that many MMO players inexplicably have an axe to grind with pet classes, did this in any way affect the choices you made when designing the Necromancer? If not, what was the reason for having limited time pets?

    My question is what is the developer's vision for the nightblade class in pvp and pve and how do the recent changes help to achieve this vision? It seems like the one thing nbs are good at (single target damage) is being reduced substantially in effectiveness, particularly for pvp.

    Specifically I have concerns about:

    Mark target: the benefits provided by this skill (fracture/breech) seem out of line with the high resource cost, particularly in comparison to equivalent skills (elemental drain). (I would have put minor vulnerability on this skill, not on teleport strike)

    Grim focus: The skill contains a lot of awkward aspects to it - 2x activation and resource expenditure with no benefit to the initial activation, heal with a long range spectral weapon, but at close range only. (I would have given this skill major brutality or sorcery on the initial cast and removed this buff from drain power. This skill does not need a heal.)

    Incapacitating Strike: The addition of mangle to this skill makes little sense. It will only reduce the max health by 10% for a short duration on high hp monsters. For most enemy players, the mangle will have no effect because the damage of incap will exceed any benefit generated by mangle. I think this skill is now strictly inferior to Dawnbreaker. (I would just make this a flat 70 cost ultimate, with single target stun and increased damage buff, drop defile entirely)

    Hey,
    just wanted to know if there major changes planned for stamina sorcerer / stamina templar or magicka warden as they clearly need a look or at least an explanation what is their role as dd in a current game state.
    Same goes for nightblade dd's, as it was their primary role when they lacking tools for competetive healing or tanking in community opinion. (All new changes brought nothing to stop groups from going scorepushing with only one class primary but it definitely will be felt by progression-like groups and solo players of sorts.)

    Was there any thoughts about synergising classes in a way that the best results can be earned through variety of specs and classes present? For example templar with bigger stamina pool casting X while magicka dragonknight's Y is already going doing Z effect and so on. A bit chaotic but it's just an example after all.

    Thanks!

    @ZOS_BrianWheeler @ZOS_Gilliam did the decision to reduce the damage of eclipse and it's morphs account for the unique counterplay options available to it (break free, cc immunity, not using direct damage skills) or was this just based on standardizing the damage with other abilities in the same category?

    Has there been a design philosophy shift away from the tank/healer/damage specs for all classes? Was this just the plan for the Warden and Necromancer? Will the Sorcerer ever get a healing/tanking spec? Just curious to see if this old philosophy will be retroactive to the other classes.

    With the current PTS you added some skills to scale off of whichever offensive stat is higher. However, the offense skills that were changed are less effective on stamina builds due to only scaling off spell penetration. All ultimates and synergies in the game currently suffer the same issue of only scaling with a single penetration stat. Is there any plan to either update these skills to work off whatever penetration is higher, or to consolidate physical, and spell penetration into a single general penetration stat?

    What was the vision for the Necromancer in pvp ? What were your goals for the class to make it stand out from other classes ? And how hard was it to make sure it goes well with every complicated aspects of the game combat wise ?

    With the increase to gap closer snare whats keeping players from spamming them and applying constant 60% snare that bypasses immunity?

    This happened before and it was universally disliked so why revert the change now? Who even asked for this?

    If you want me to reply to your comment type @Ankael07 in it.

    CP system is a crutch. When ESO will be able to stand on its legs? I mean foundation is solid already, considering the presence of major/minor buffs and recent racial rebalance, along with standartisation of abilities in Elsweyr patch.
    Profanity filter is a crime against the freedom of speech. Also gags.

    P.S. also, stat bloating is a bit of an issue. Can we expect the return of softcaps, just in a bit more polished form? Or maybe slight stat squish?

    is there any planes to remove or rework the heal absorption from scythe at all imo a class should not both have that and defile in its kit?
