Details and Rank System
Champion: The brutal specialists of PVP, these players live for player-on-player combat and excel in gear, strategy, and builds that support dominance in this play-style. This player archetype also excels in PVE combat when using strategies, outside the realms of Knight tactics, ie ambush, Battle-Mage, Barbarian, Archer or other play-styles that do not fall into the Knight category.
- Rank 1 = Skirmisher
- Rank 2 = Death Dealer
- Rank 3 = Champion Elite
Knight: These specialists deal in melee warfare and focus on PVE, but are not limited to just PVE. Knights are on the front line and do their best in close quarter scenario combat. Driven by loyalty to the guild and honor bound, Knights are the backbone of the Thornwatch. The legendary 'Knight of the Thorn'
is a rank established by Lord-Commander Tenebris and each crowned member symbolizes his passion for the protection of the Daggerfall Covenant and service to High King Emeric.
- Rank 1 = Squire
- Rank 2 = Hedge Knight
- Rank 3 = Knight of the Thorn
Healer: These holy vigils either heal via magic derived from the gods or the earth. Healers increase the life expectancy of Thornwatch members by buffing, healing, or resurrecting our fallen. Healers have a part to play in both PVE and PVP as well as perform solo diplomatic/exploration missions. The 'Priest of the Thorn' rank is the highest order and among the most revered across the Daggerfall Covenant.
- Rank 1 = Vigil
- Rank 2 = Templar
- Rank 3 = Priest of the Thorn
Stealth: This play-style revolves around ambush, subterfuge and quick, high-
damage strikes to take out enemies in a hurry. Useful in both PVP and PVE, these characters also excel in exploration and spy tactics employed both in and out of combat. The "Shadow Master" is the most cunning and deadly rank of the Stealth play-style. Employed by Lord-Commander Tenebris in only the most dire and extreme circumstances, Shadow Masters are sent on mission that would be considered "one-way'" to most adventures, but a norm to these stealth elites.
- Rank 1 = Rogue
- Rank 2 = Ranger
- Rank 3 = Shadow Master
Caster: This play-style is for those who specialise in the Arcane arts. Whether it be destruction, illusion, alteration or conjuration these masters of magicka bring distance warfare, area-of-affect combat and crowd control to the fight. Casters have a place in both PvE and PvP. The "Mage of the Thorn" title can only be given to those who have complete and utter control/knowledge of the Arcane art. Lord-Commander Tenebris, a wielder of Magic and Blade, understood early in his life the importance of Arcane study and mastering. His development of the Mage of the Thorn rank has left him with powerful masters of the Arcane at his side and constantly teaching and development of the use of magic amongst the ranks of the Thornwatch.
- Rank 1 = Inquisitor
- Rank 2 = Maester
- Rank 3 = Mage of the Thorn
