    You can completely respec but if you respec into skills you haven't used before you would have to level them up from stage 1. If you repec into skills you've already leveled, the skill will go back to the beginning of the level it was when you repec'd.

    Thanks for the clarification. It actually takes away a lot of reservations I had about trying things out, though it's really expensive. I thought this whole time you just had to reroll a new character if you didn't like your build. Whew. I'll make sure to post this in the 'What noob things did you do at launch' a few years from now.

    There's an option to only respec morphs?

    Cannot for the life of me find a good looking helmet to go with the Barbaric medium armour set, So i've opted for a cloth hood atm that fits really well. Still kinda wish the medium armour passive was 5/5 instead 7/7. Strangely though, the heavy armour passive is 5 or more, Not 7.

    Have you checked ESO Fashion? I don't know how many are aware of the site.

    There's a hide helmet option in settings. I think it's the best helm for any set.

    Plot armor (helmet) is the best armor.

    You can refund all of your skill points (not skill line level) for a pretty hefty sum (I did it once at level ~25 with 38 skill points and it was like 3k, it goes up for every skill point you have). You can just refund the morphs for a lesser amount. It does not have any effect on the actual skill level of the skill line, so you would have to grind a skill line up if you want to spend skill points in it if you had not previously leveled it.

    Is a sneak/light armor/archery focused character viable in this game? It's not a lock on style combat system for ranged is it? I also play a sneak archer in TES games and want to carry that into TESO. Are casters fun (DPS)?

    Also, is playing in first person the ideal way to play? I tried the third person view in beta and found it pretty awful.

    First person is generally fine while questing or using ranged like bows during castle sieges, but once you get into things like dungeons, trials or big PVP battles, forget First person or you'll get wrecked.

    Tbh, I'm disappointed in the way abilities pigeonhole you into an armor choice. It's always been this way, but now it's even more static. I wanted to be a heavy armor dps as well, but it's just not a good idea for pure damage. Maybe it works in PvP, idk, but for PvE it's a huge waste.
    It's pretty disappointing for me too. I've played heavy-armor melee characters in Oblivion and Skyrim, but I feel forced into medium in ESO. I much prefer the aesthetics of plate over leather. :/

    Everything is ok for leveling. Though, since bow skills rely on stamina, Not a bad idea to incorporate the passives from the medium armour.

    I've played a Sorc caster up to Vet rank 2. It kills fast and has good survivable skills if paired with a resto staff on the 2nd weapon slot. As for fun, not that much. Well, depends on your view of fun. For me, mindlessly spamming forcepulse with medium attack weaving and the occasional lightning splash for single target got boring real quick. Though, Hopefully Spellcrafting arrives soon and that can probably make a non boring caster.

    Can't comment on First person, as i generally dislike it.

    Damn. That's a deal breaker for me then, unfortunately. I hate playing TES in third person. It's ok in Skyrim (compared to Oblivion), but far from ideal. If it wasn't TES, I wouldn't have a problem with it though, so maybe I'm being unreasonable...

    to be fair, oblivion's and skyrim's armor didn't have any benefits to combat directly. Some sets might have but overall it was just armor on them contributing to your perfomance.

    I was running a heavy armor dps build at launch cause medium armor only provided crit and stam regen instead of raw damage (which hevy armor gave at 1% extra phys dmg per piece and another 1% per piece with another buff) shame they got rid of that and made heavy armor pure tanky.

    edit: yeah they turned juggernaut into health instead of weapon damage.

    And they made medium armor's agility do the % dmg thing thus making medium armor the go to melee damage set as well as the only thing for any 'stealth' build that was serious.

    It's not that it's impossible to play in first person, you just have to be waaaaaaaay more aware of your surroundings than in 3rd person. There's a number of ground prompts from mob abilities that can be hard to spot in first person mode. I generally play in first person unless I'm doing group content which I don't want to mess up for other people.
