What type of Archer? Stealth, support, regen, high survivability nuker, glass cannon?

Support = Breton
Stealth = Redguard
Regen = Orc
Nuker = Orc
Glass Cannon = Breton

Just few examples.

glass cannon = very high DPS, very low survivability. One shot everything at the risk of being one-shot BY everything.

That being said, really all that is based off of is past TES games and the existing lore on what each race is good at. Traditionally, Wood Elves are considered the best archers in all of Tamriel and when one thinks archer in TES they usually think of the Bosmer. However, really you can make any race an archer. Just cause I pick to play an Orc, for example, doesn't mean I haft swing a big ole ax and wear heavy armour. I could be an excellent mage even though I'm an orc. It's just pre-existing notions as to what stereotypically each race is good at that people tend to pick certain races for certain play styles.

That being said, once NDA lifts and we can look at racial passives, Min/Maxers will be able to find out with race's passives work 'best; with certain play styles. What I mean by that is, perhaps a certain race's skills compliment certain play styles better. It's possible Redguards may get a bonus to using swords cause they're sposed to be the best swordsmen ever. But that's speculation, and really no guarantee. And just cause you may get a bonus to it does not mean you hafta play that way.

Fight for something to die for, because living for nothing really isn't worth it.

Race isn't going to be a huge thing for your class In this game or so It seems so far.

Only measly 5% of specialized efficiency increase.

The best race is Saxhleel. Warm bloods are weak!

Bosmer skill up quicker but all races can develop archery to mastery. I would like to have seen javelins in TESO and maybe tridents and nets too. Can only hope these concepts emerge in later years.

From the racial passives I've seen there is no increase to damage via weapon choice. The notion of best archer is irrelevant. Play what you want to play because you can shape any race into any class. On that note join Aldmeri Dominion. Because We will have the most archers.

He's talking about the DC, not the AD
But they are pretty good.

And for an Archer, I've got to say a Breton. Orcs aren't the most Archer like if you know what I'm saying...

I do enjoy playing a Khajiit, it has a community feel to it more than any other race. As though as soon as you join you are a part of something, even if that something is a massive drug cartel.

Be your favorite race you will have more fun being who you want to be and any race can be an archer and just because wood elves are known as the best archers doesnt mean that the people who play with them are the best it depends on the players skill not the racial skills.

Please stop this blatant posting of opinions based on previous games or lore in the game mechanics discussion. Or spread of false claims and data.
