For just pure beauty and scenery, I would say AD has the best areas and most interesting mainly because we haven't seen Valenwood or Elsweyr before. (Well second time, but Arena's graphics were not the best)

For ease of recognition, the EP areas are great as two (three but the third was a crappy mobile game set in Blackmarsh) of the recent (2000 onwards) games have been set in the EP areas, those being TES III (2003) Or Morrowind, and TES V (2011) Or Skyrim.

Now, the DC area's are (for me) nostalgic as my favorite TES game (that being TES II DaggerFall) was set there, now however with the better graphics I assume it looks beautiful. Plus now we can really explore HammerFell and High Rocl, outside the Illac bay.

Overall, I don't feel that there is a best. It all depends on your own opinion.

Yeah the three are pretty much the same, as far as gameplay. But that depends on what you are wanting to do: PvP Cyrodiil, or PvE solo.
In case of PvP, if you want to be "on the winning side," it seems to me AD wins more often than not. So if you want to be an "underdog," try other alliances - they seem to need your help.
For scenery I think AD & EP, but Betnikh is pretty too, and that's DC. So it's almost a wash.
AD seems just a little a bit racist/supremacist RP wise (so far, to Lv14), so if you like that and you like RP you might try that.

Well depends on what you want.

For Stories and Quests I have found DC to have better at the beginning.

For crafting materials EP is the winner - Bleakrock Island is pack full of nodes and chests.

This does tend to full up your bank though.

The Aldmeri Dominion is freedom!

The Aldmeri Dominion is liberty!

The Aldmeri Dominion is truth!

With regards to Cyrodiil, there are multiple campaigns where multiple different factions do "well" and do "not-so-well".

I was intending to roll a Daggerfall Covenant character first but yeah, I've ended up going with the Aldmeri Dominion for various boring reasons. Been great fun so far... I enjoyed learning about the Bosmer the most from their content.

I mean, you're going to experience all the content of all three factions anyway... You're going to see different races and players in every faction area and so on and so forth.

It all comes down to personal preference and the identity you intend to sculpt for your digital alias / character. Well, which is obvious, meh.

Like, my character is a heroic and heroic-act-indulging obsessively Dragonknight that can brawl for days and is ferociously loyal to an entity that gave him purpose, strength and a place to belong.

I couldn't not have him from the Aldmeri Dominion due to his identity, that and come-on, a descendent of Auri-El? Heroic identity is heroic.


-Ascended entity
-Ferocious Mudcrab procurer exterminator extraordinaire
-Noxiphilic Sanguivoria enthusiast
-I am a dinosaur and a diplomat

Yes personally I am AD right now, only bc I have played both the others. I like to be an underdog too, in PvP, so if/when I do that I'll be another alliance (they need the help).

Not true. Khenarthi's roost is also just as full of stuff, I have played both, and actually I thought Bleakrock Isle was a bit sparse. However, that was at then end of Feb., could have changed since.
That said, however I am having a hard time finding many runes in Auridon (AD) in comparison to other alliance home maps.

AD has better quests IMO but all three have great quests. I really like how you are helping Queen Ayreen directly in AD so you feel like you are having more of an impact in that particular faction. You will find a variety of characters through out all alliances but the AD characters are the ones that stick in my head as memorable and I have alts in all 3 alliances. All zones have great exploration potential. I don't honestly think there is a bad side to play so it is really is personal preference.

Aldmeri Dominion because we are far superior in every way.


Which is more difficult: To do as you wish? Or to have power and choose not to?
