Music: Character Class Themes

I’m noodling with my phone, locating the proper settings and site that will allow me to get my pics downloaded, and listening to a bit of music. I recalled that, when I had my in-game guild site up, I’d done a little musical tribute to the four character classes in The Elder Scrolls Online: Templars, Nightblades, Sorcerers, and Dragonknights.

First, the Templars: they are the healers, radiating the light of life on their comrades – but don’t mistake them for gentle, pious souls! They will bring down the power of the heavens upon their enemies, crushing them with the gravity of the sun. Another skill they possess is referred to by all in the game as the “Jebus Beam,” and it is potent against many! The Beatles’ song “Here Comes the Sun” was the best tribute I could think of.

Next, the Nightblades: the assassins, cloaked in the shadows. They stealthily creep up on opponents unawares, thrusting knives or swords that weaken the enemy’s stamina and armour. Some sap the very life-force from foes, taking it for themselves or sharing it with group members before sidling off to scout the battlefield. I thought that “Night Prowler” by AC/DC was most fitting!

Now, the Sorcerers: the mages are versatile, wielding blades, bows, or staves. Their powers are formidable when they utilize the destructive power of flame, frost, or storm, given the appropriate staff, then summon a familiar from dark depths to fight at their side. Beware of the storm-callers! They dish out quite a bit of damage when equipped with proper mage-robes, too. I felt that “Symphony of Destruction” by Megadeth was the perfect tribute to the might of the sorcerer!

Last, but certainly not least, the Dragonknights: my favourite class in-game! Fearless warriors with the heart of a dragon, they charge first into battle wreathed in flame, using the very stones of the earth to smash foes down – or protect comrades with a shield of spinning rocks. They flex their wings, holding enemies fast with mighty talons, or lashing them into submission with a whip of flame. Dragonknights dominate with whips and chains, so the song “Hands of Death (Burn Baby Burn)” is ideal!

      Ack! I hit “send” too soon. Anyway, though I’m steering clear of morgs, your post made this one tempting!

        You should see the other posts I’ve done about it… *cackles maniacally*

        So many screen-shots of the landscape – the graphics are awesome, the music is fantastic, and it’s just an ass-kicking game in general, IMHO!

      LOL – it is an addicting one, for sure! I’d sworn off of MMORPGs after my Ultima Online account was deactivated by EA Games, simply because I changed my email account – this game hooked me when I played Skyrim, so it wasn’t a huge leap to start ESO when it launched! It’s the only game that I subscribe to, but it is essentially f2p…not that I’m trying to influence you, or anything!

        I actually try to stick with Skyrim, the Dragon Age series and such because they’re solo games that I can play on my own time. (Gotta keep reminding myself that . . . .)

        LOL – understandable! That’s the thing that I love about ESO…I’m a fairly solo player for the most part, so you can run completely alone if you choose (except in AvA territory). With the new update coming up in the next month, it will be far easier to solo than it is now – the game has changed quite a bit in the 3 years its been around; some for the better, some not so much, but it’s still good enough that I plan on playing it for at least as long as I did Ultima Online…if not longer!
        13 years I played UO…was very disappointed when my account got blocked.
