A Dunmer Dragonknight.

For other classes in Online, see Classes (Online).
"These skillful masters-at-arms use the ancient Akaviri martial tradition of battle-spirit, and wield fearsome magic that pounds, shatters and physically alters the world around them."
―Official description[1]

The Dragonknight is one of five playable classes in The Elder Scrolls Online. It is a class more suited to dealing damage and staying alive, though it can fulfill any role effectively, like the other four classes.

Skill LinesEdit

The Dragonknight, like all classes, has 3 unique skill lines only available for Dragonknights: Ardent Flame, Draconic Power and Earthen Heart. Each of these skills are more suited to specific roles. For example, Draconic Power is more suited towards survivability, while Ardent Flame is more suited towards dealing damage. The arrows are used to signify a skill's morph choices, e.g. one morph choice for Fiery Grip is Empowering Chains.

  • The Dragonknight is a very effective class for players that intend to mix magic and two-handed weapon usage, and many use it to fulfill the role of Battlemage and Spellsword.
  • The Dragonknight class is usually used as the typical Warrior class in the game.
  • The Dragonknight can be used very effectively to create a Juggernaut/Dreadnought type character.
  • Though primarily a close range character, the Dragonknight is prepared from a low level to close the distance between themselves and enemies with the Fiery Grip ability.
  • If you combine the Dragonknight with Dunmer (or a Breton or Altmer, although Dunmer are the best if you want to do this) it can be built into a very powerful Pyromancer.
