3 skill lines provide flexibility

What class is this? The Arcanist is the 7th class in ESO and relies on powerful abilities from the realm of oblivion. He uses offensive, defensive and restorative magic – so you can play as a damage dealer, tank or support.


The class offers three skill lines:

  • Herald of the Tome focuses on damage.
  • With “curative rune forms” you play as a support. You heal yourself and your allies, generate shields, and use gates to teleport around the battlefield.
  • “Apocryphal Soldier” is the tank line. You draw enemies towards you while boosting your defenses and dealing additional explosive damage with your shield.

The Arcanist offers a new mechanic, a kind of combo system. Crux is generated every time you use abilities. Other abilities consume Crux. The more Crux you collect before consuming it, the more powerful the ability becomes.
