The great thing about ESO builds is that you can build your character any way you want. For example, your build might be focused on group or solo play, PVE or PVP, tanking, healing, dealing damage (DPS), and many other specialties.

Builds in ESO require a lot of information, including the best skills, passives, race, champion points, sets and rotation.
