Best Factions / Occupations In Skyrim

A list of the top ten factions or jobs in the Elder Scrolls V. I welcome all comments and opinions.

The Top Ten

1 Dark Brotherhood

Most creative and fun quests in my humble opinion dark brotherhood quests are always best--not just because of the killing, but because of the stories involved and interesting quests

Love that feeling when you're wanted everywhere for stabbing a load of people in the back. Plus you get SO MUCH CASH for doing missions for Nazir. And shadowmere is such a badass horse that I love to kill dragons with.

Sneaking around an silently killing your contracts is very enjoyable. - fan-o-freddie

2 Thieves Guild

Becoming the guild master of the Riften Ratway and earning the respect of your subordinates is (in my opinion) the most rewarding. Perhaps it is as a result of my sneak prowess. - fan-o-freddie

3 The Companions

Getting paid to destroy monsters and bandits is a profitable career. - fan-o-freddie

#1: Companions. (I'm the leader of them, so I have to put them at #1)
#2: Thieves Guild. (I'm awesome at picking locks, sneaking, and stealing.
#3: Dark Brotherhood. (Pretty cool to be an assassin, and plus you get a free horse and free assassin robes. - Alpha101

4 Independent Bandit Killer

Not even faction

5 Imperial Legion
6 Hunter

Killing animals to use their fur to smith or to sell while also improving other skills. - fan-o-freddie

7 Alchemist

Gathering ingredients in the wild and making potions can be profitable as well as handy in combat. - fan-o-freddie

8 Smith

Forging your own armor, weapons or Jewellery to use or to sell can be profitable if you have the patience. - fan-o-freddie

9 Civil War Fighter

All the required quests are at the bottom for every top ten. Haha.

The war is NOT a civil war, fools.

Choose to be either a Stormcloack or an Imperial and fight for Skyrim - fan-o-freddie

10 The Blades

The Contenders

11 Pit Fighter
12 Farmer

Nothing more satisfying in the game than watching your crops grow. No need for all this mindless killing, just buy a house in the countryside and relax.
