Non Magic Characters

    I am going for a non-magic character in ESO, and I haven't decided what class to go with. Non-magic=No magical-looking weapon, class, or guild skills. The classes I was weighing on was the sorcerer and nightblade. Sorcerer has 3 passives that can be of use to me (reduce ultimate cost, reduce stamina cost on skills, and one other) and dark deal. Nightblade has skills in the Assassination tree and Shadow tree that I can actually use, and one of them will provide healing (Killers Blade, I think). I am probably going to use an Orc with two handed or dual wield, because I like Orcs and they deal increased weapon damage. What would you guys do? Have you made a non-magic character? I'm leaning towards Nightblade.

    OK, am on mobile atm, so this may be edited later. Beyond weapon skills, remember the Fighters Guild has a few "mundane" skills that are still useful. Patriarch probably knows more than me on this, but both classes would work fine IMO. Are you going more for PvE or PvP with this dude?

    Decided to go for a Redguard Sorcerer with Two Handed. I chose Redguard because they are probably my least played race.

    Edit: Rerolled an Orc; feeling much better.

    My ESO character has 1 point in health for every 5 points in stamina, and 0 points in magicka. However, I chose Sorcerer as my class because I wanted to use the summoning spells. So, I'm still technically using magic, but not focusing on it whatsoever.
