Dragonknight

The Dragonknight is one of the four classes available in The Elder Scrolls: Online. Dragonknights are a basic warrior class. Most similar to the Templar class, Dragonknights have a heavier focus on dealing damage rather than defense and buffing allies. They have many options for preferred weapons and are best suited to the front lines of a fight. Dragonknights also make use of both defensive and offensive magic skills on the battlefield.
