What is your opinion about the description of Khajit in TESO?

Aldmeri Dominion (Khajiit)
The population of the proud feline Khajiit has dwindled in recent years following a devastating outbreak of Knahaten Flu. They owe a great debt to Ayrenn, Queen of the High Elves, for her help in restoring order from the chaos that followed the plague. They have a wry wit and a hedonistic outlook, but they are fearsome on the field of battle. They are the strong arm of the Aldmeri Dominion.

I always imagined Khajit as the most sneaky of all the races. Firstly because they are cats. Cats are sneaky as hell. Secondly they have bonuses towards sneaking, lockpicking, pickpocketing and archery in Skyrim. In Oblivion they also have better acrobatics and agility.

However, in the description they are mentioned as the strong arm of the Aldmeri Dominion. Whereas Argonians ARE mentioned as to being sneaky.

What say you?

I have a sneaking suspicion that they're the strong arm only because the Altmer and Bosmer are so much more "squishy".

Makes sense. Altmer wouldn't have the numbers to take the throne and I doubt the Bosmer population is that much bigger. But the Khajit? The elves found themselves a good sized army of meatshields. Loyal meatshields at that.

Atlmer -> Bosmer -> Khajit = Great agility = The proud EAGLE as AD's logo. While DC = Lion. EP = Dragon.

So yes, Khajit can play thieves role, but prefer they can fight with blades.

I think every faction can make own roles as fighter, thieves or mages. Question how races stats and factions classes. Until TESO will tell us later...

"Strong-arm" certainly is relative when compared to the Altmer and Bosmer, haha! There are also several sub-species of Khajiit, some of whom (Cathay, for example) are hulking monsters compared to others. I'm still a little bothered by their description for TESO, but it's probably so every faction has a "Mage" a "Fighter" and a "Rogue". Oh well.

Me too, but we can guess...

"Strong-arm" would mean: High agility and Khajiit can play as rogue with deadly blades = high damage as crit. hit.

Dark Elves can also play as rogues, since they were members from old Morag Tong (they emerged with The Dark Brotherhood now)

But as i said before, all races can play "rogues" if they wish.

Would it depend on what breed of Khajiit TESO uses? The description doesn't bother me that much, but it would be nice to hint towards their sneaky behavior as well. I've always played as a thief, and Khajiit pull that role off great in my eyes.

I think you will be able to pick your breed in TESO. I can't see any reason why they wouldn't include this.

the early concept art that was once seen in the background looked realy good with the katar and all. The new one is absoluteley awfull with the weirdly long snout that is not cat like at all and the way too fat body. Definitly not what i wanted.

Basically all the Races should be like in Skyrim. Skyirm nailed them.

As for the role: ive talked alot about this already. Basically it is out of the fact that they do not have another warrior race. So the Kahjiit will take up that role. Probably well be playing a Suthay Rath this time around. Those are the ones with the spiked.... im drifting off.

Its the same with the Redguard becoming the "thievy" race for the Covenant. It doesnt make much sense its just that they dont have another one.

None will be "uber" players.

Health, Magicka, or Stamina.

1-50 level, more level, more survive.

It depends how your Health (against fatigue) to fight. Low Health, easy to be killed.

Mage > Magicka/Health or Stamina
Thief > Health/Stamina
Warrior > Health/Stamina
Of course they can do random...

Extra:
Character Customization (Who you wish to make right one - prefer for your goal)
Choose class (wait at 10 lvl, i guess)
Character skills (perks)
Enchanted items
Alchemy (potions)
Cooking (food)
More professions...
Wear armors (Cloth > Light > Heavy)

But we need more info from TESO later...to be sure.

I know we all like to play 'smooth & silken' thieving khajiits; but it does say in the WIKI definition of them that they are ferocious fighters, some even eschewing weapons in favor of using their own lethally sharp claws in battle. And the largest of the 4-legged khajiits - the Seche-raht, which are said to be twice the height of an Altmer & 50 times an Altmer's weight, are known to the Imperials as 'battlecats' because the other khajiit breeds ride them, willingly, into battle. I've never seen the 4-legged varieties, they keep to themselves.

I also didn't know that some of the smaller 4-legged khajiit, Dagi for instance, who live high in the treetops where even Bosmer can't reach - have a natural talent for magicka. I always thought the only magicka floating in the khajiit brain came from his skooma pipe. lol

I don't know about you, but I see the khajiiti's as being the best spies & forward scouts, along with the Bosmer, in the game of ESO - employing
their sneaking & night eye abilities & feline senses along with their heroic claw, dagger, sword fighting if they come close to getting caught. But the talents of the different breeds of khajiit are so varied that the Altmer are very lucky they have such furry gratitude for helping them survive the Thrassian Plague.

CedarLilly, u are right.

But it is fun to look how we make character customization at TESO later, so we can look how big or little Khajiit players.
