After Matt Firor’s End of the Year Letter, there were many speculations on what is the most requested feature in the game. However, since the release of Elsweyr Chapter when developers added the Necromancer class, players have asked for a new class. The Monk and Dwemer engineer were one of the ideas that ESO players were talking about. During today’s Bethesda and Xbox showcase, we learned about a new class: The Arcanist! Let’s take a closer look at what we know so far.
New Class Arcanist
The Arcanist class channels the magic of Apocrypha to create arcane, ancient runes and lost tomes of power to wild the powerful magic. The class is capable of destructive, restorative, or defensive magic. Just like all other The Elder Scrolls Online classes, it will most likely have all the tools to heal, deal considerable damage and also fulfil the classic role of the tank in group scenarios.
Arcanist Skill Lines
It has three skill lines: Herald of the Tome, Apocryphal Soldier and Curative Runeforms, also each skill line focuses on different aspects of the game offence, defence and support. The class has similarities to the previous, however, this time developers took a little different approach.

Class skills have beautiful visual effects and each animation is something we haven’t seen before. Arcanist is not only using the powers of Apocrypha but also is heavily themed after Hermaeus Mora and his unique green and shadow look. Therefore it will attract many players to come back to the game and try this robust and fascinating new class.
The Apocryphal Gate lets players open a pair of temporary portals to travel through for extra mobility. Additionally, players can use it during exploration as well.
The Abyssal Impact summons tentacles from the abyss to thrust forward at enemies, dealing damage.
New Combo points system
Also, the new Arcanist Class will introduce a unique combo system, some skills will build points others will spend them and enhance their effects with more healing, protection or damage. But the developers noted that this class will still be accessible to all players and will not be too technical to play.
