The combat interface is likely to contain the regular set of bars. Health, Magic and Stam. Also, there is to be number of slots to place your skills. Much time is being invested in making sure that players will be able to fight solo. Blocking will be a valued combat talent, and will remain separate of skills placed in the slots. Blocking allows players to cancel attacks that try to hit them and will also avoid damaging spells. A perfectly timed blocking move will remove damage and also cause opponents to take time to recover. You will also have access to ultimate moves and the option to use charged up more powerful attacks.

Fighting together as a team will be useful as you will also be able to take advantage of multiple class combos. Team strategies will also play a major part in battles. The engine is capable of handling up to 200 players fighting at the same time.

Due to inevitable online latency the Stam. Bar will play a major role in battles. You can use the it to do such thing as sprinting, blocking, interrupt and to void incapacitating effects such as frozen. Each of these effects will be dependent upon your class.

The usual Tanker,Healer,Shooter team is out. Teams of players are more likely to gather together into groups to clear most levels without worrying about things like Aggro. You heard/read that right, Aggro. will not exist in TES Online. Players will have to be more responsible for themselves, and be less likely to have anyone to blame.

Attempting to defeat challenging bosses with your team-mates is one of the funnest parts online games, but some players prefer to avoid organizing into groups. So, TES Online have many different kinds of dungeons that are open to the public.

The standardized five-person instances will also appear in game. The will have multiple levels of difficulty.


The Elder Scrolls Online has a multi-pronged strategy to separate its combat from other MMOs on the market. With an emphasis on fewer, more powerful skills and rewarding tactical maneuvers like creating synergy bonuses between two players, the team at Zenimax Online Studios is attempting to create a seamless transition between player-versus-monster combat and player-versus-player fights. Game Informer's Adam Biessener sat down with lead gameplay designer Nick Konkle, creature combat designer Maria Aliprando, and lead PvP designer Brian Wheeler to talk about what will stand out in the combat mechanics of The Elder Scrolls Online. We have separated the discussion into two parts: the first video focuses on top-level features, while the second video dives in deep to the mechanics and is recommended for those more familiar with MMOs.
