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

Who doesn't love murdering innocent bystanders?

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

We need saviors to free us, from Alduin's rage.
Heroes on the field, of this new war to wage.
And if Alduin wins, man is gone from this world.
Lost in the shadow, of the black wings unfurled.

The Contenders

11 Dawnguard

Slava lenin slava stalin!

The are the only the best faction in Skyrim (i don't consider the Stormcloaks a faction,but I'm a stormcloak with proud,and I used the amulet of Talos the entire game) I mean,they are monster hunters,they kill vampires,who are the most evil creatures in Skyrim,their logo/symbol are beautiful,they got the most beautiful armor design I've ever seen,anyway,i just love them,and I always do side quests for them.

(By the way,i hate how people like the Dark Brotherhood and the Thieve's Guild,they are foul criminals,who deserve to be death! )

12 Pit Fighter

"Kill for the Glory" -Kannon

13 Thane
14 Farmer

"its honest pay for honest work" - fan-o-freddie

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.

15 Stormcloaks

Ulfric is the true high king

All hail to Ulfric! You are the high king! In you great honor we drink and we sing! - Alpha101

I liked invading Solitude and Whiterun.

16 College of Winterhold

Oh come on they're lower than a hunter what

17 The Greybeards
18 Cicero’s ARMY
