ZeniMax Online Studios has posted the results of another new Q&A answering fan questions about the upcoming MMO adaptation of Bethesda's Elder Scrolls universe. The developer answered questions on a variety of topics related to The Elder Scrolls Online.

I've been waiting for years and years to play a tank-oriented character with light armor. Will only characters with heavy armor be able to tank, or will our role be more dependent on the abilities used/chosen?

Generally, as a tank-oriented character, being in heavy armor will be the most reasonable course of action because it lends itself well to absorbing damage and taking the big hits. However, if you choose to increase your health to the max and carefully choose your abilities, you could build a light armor character that would last a good, long time on the front lines.

I've watched the videos and read the articles, but most of the details on classes have been mainly about how you can be a hybrid. I commonly play strictly healing roles. Will it be viable (or possible) to make a pure healer?

Yes. You will definitely be able to play a healer. As the game has evolved, we’ve really downplayed classes quite a bit in the design, and we’ve really played up the skill lines and the choices you make. For instance, if you wanted to focus entirely on healing at first, you might choose Templar and the Restoration staff lines. Later, if you decided not to be a healer all the time, you could work on other lines.
By choosing your weapon, passives, and buffs and filling your five active ability slots, you’ll really decide how you want to approach any given situation. The more you play, the broader your choices will be.
