Class Choice in Elder Scrolls Online

Corpse Run has a good post about classes in ESO.  There are only 4 classes to choose from, which sounds like a small amount.  It really isn't though, as a class in ESO is not like one in other games.  Basically, a class is a just set of 3 skill lines to pick and choose from.  Things like armor type and weapons are independent of the class you choose.

In addition to those 3 skill lines, you have all of the other ones that the game has to offer.  Each weapon type has a skill line, as does armor, Guilds, Alliance War, racial and more.  You can only use 5 (plus an ultimate) active skills at a time, so the real customization is picking what to use from all of those skill lines.  Don't forget there are a lot of passive skills to spend points on too.

My Archer is actually a Templar.
