Khajiit
I'm not sure which race I will make my main,
I will only count the vote of users that have argued a decent point.
I'm going to make a Sneaky guy who uses A bow and dual-wield daggers
Try to convince me please!

breton, khajiit or wood elf seem like a fit.

i cant really argue in any of their favor because in reality you can make any race the character that you want. but my biased opinion says breton

Khajiit
The persay 'best' race for a sneaky thief like character is often stereotyped as a Khajiit or a Bosmer, however Dunmer can also be rather sneaky as can Bretons.

Khajiit triditionally would be the best and I do believe, please don't quote me on this, in ESO that their racials are medium armour, daggers, etc orintated. Wood Elf second as they have bow and medium armour, yet again don't quote me on this, orintated skills and finally dark elf as they have duel wield, you can quote me on that, orintated skills.

Dunmer all the way back to Arena, have been mostly "skilled with a bow, a sword and magic" not really sneaky, Skyrim nerfed it Pouting
But it does fit so some of the lore, but not all of it.

Skyrim is the worst elder scrolls to...
Anyway Dunmer at least in the four earlier TES games were good at stealth.

Also Khajiit, Bosmer, Argonain, or maybe, MAYBE a Dunmer.

I edited my early post to fix some thing and say that they're somewhat good at sneaking around.
But the Dunmer in the past TES games, had skill bonuses to One-handed, Destruction magic, and Archery. And in SKyrim NO BONUS TO ONE-HANDED!!! Same thing with the Argonians.
And what makes you think that Skyrim was the worst; all of the games have something that they are good at.

Fine. Skyrim was good in its combat and that you could make weapons/armour. Other than that its TRAMPLED by the others, and Skyrim vampires were pathetic.

And I agree if they had the one-handed bonus then they would be semi better, but they were portrayed too much like wizards, which they are in a sense but they are also great warriors.

True for Skyrim.
But still the Dunmer aren't really that much of a sneaking type of race.

They MADE the Morag Tong, and technically the dark brotherhood...two orders of highly secretive and stealthy assassins.

The Tong especially PRETTY MUCH ONLY recruit Dunmer...with few exceptions.

I'm not the best lore person (And I haven't been able to play Morrowind because by PC is acting dumb for mouths now)
So I did know about that. I guess you win this one...Winking_grinning

I would go either wood elf, argonian, or khajiit. For archery I would go wood elf if you were going to use daggers more argonian
