Best Races in The Elder Scroll V: SkyrimTheBerserker
The Top TenXW
I always make my Nords have brown hair and green eyes, so they look really weird being from the north.
Love being a strong bearded nord charging into the midst of any battle.
Nords are the original warriors of skyrim and are great with two handed wepons
This race is the only one that hands down can truly shout and look badassV9 Comments
Khajiit are literally the best race. They start out with the highest thief skills like sneak, pickpocket, and lockpicking and also have high one handed armour. And plus, they just looks badass. I mean, who doesn't want to be an awesome warrior cat?
Cute! Who doesn't want to be an awesome cat being?
Who needs weapons when you are a Khajiit. Best race, especially when you need to get around quickly
Khajiit are the best race. And are the best thieves in all the 9 provinces.V12 Comments
I am usually the archer in RPG games, so wood elves are my first choice. Plus they have 50% disease resistance.
Their aweosme and their the greatest archers and are 50% resistant to diseases and look cool compared to the other elves
Great little thieves and the best arches in the whole or skyrim! Fantastic assassins too
I have always been and always will be a wood elf in my own RPG world of the elder scrolls.V4 Comments
Awesome warriors but also fun to play as Mage or thief just to be different
The ultimate Beast/Warrior of The Elder Scrolls!
Orcs are, in my opinion, the greatest warriors in all of Tamriel. They may not be great mages, cunning thieves, or deadly assassins, but they are, however, the most deadly race to ever wield a weapon!
Orcs are ugly but I also never go two handed warrior in a game, I like one handed swords and daggers with magic in other hand. - matthewwilliams2V23 Comments
Highest resistance to magic plus the only race to start the game with a conjuration spell important for building the skill up early in the game
They are the best at everything who do not want 35 residence to magic truly the best race in the world they can do everything and they make good nightingale
They in my choice the best race is the Breton there bad ass mages and worrier there is nothing that can stop them
Best race in skyrimV15 Comments
Mine is red and blacks and sounds like a snake... Plus its almost impossible to turn into a vampire and ruin the game... Argonians are the best full stop!
The unlimited time underwater really helps when you are trying to get away or hide. Very helpful ability to have.
Any Argonian could beat a High Elf easy.
It has a very unique appearance. I also like argonian's power, it 's really useful when you're on the verge of deathV7 Comments
Who's more badass than somebody that does not care about any other race and say it their faces?
Dark elves are malevolent when they want to be, but also exhibit a suttle elegance.
What's more badass than red eyes.
The best race should be number 1 - matthewwilliams2V3 Comments
Redgaurds are gifted talented warriors of hammerfell, fantastic with a bow as well as a mace, dual wielded of coarse. Also a fun character to interact with such as Iran or saadia!V1 Comment
By far imperials are a good mix of anything you want. On the downside, they are pretty pathetic compared to other races just because they have no good particular useful talent. Also it's not fun to be pressured into joining the imperials because you're an imperial
Most normal looking out of them. And they go through all of then
Imperials are the best all-rounders and look good as well
They are bad to the boneV1 Comment
Why are High Elves on the list? They only care about themselves and are similar to the Nazis in many ways - SirSkeletorThe3rd
Really? Number 8? I know most are generally either douchey Thalmor members or snooty in general, but playing as a High Elf is pretty awesome! They look awesome and since you have 50 Magicka, you can work on your health and stamina for a bit. Also, most mage skills are already levelled up a bit. Plus you get some decent spells (for beginners anyway) automatically.
Ok, I think you guys are judging all high elves just because of the thalmor. High elves are actually a really good choice for a race. They have an awesome magicka boost and a great racial ability. Even if you're not playing a Mage, magic is always useful, so that magicka boost is drastic when it comes to combat.
Alex is the master Race. More specifically Alex Robinson.V2 Comments
They would be so badass to have one too play as, they have legendary magick - matthewwilliams2
