An assassin is one of the most difficult class, or play type to do sucsessfully. Sneak archery can be OP sometimes but usually the tricky bit is hiding once youve hit them, and usually they find you very fast. What's this about the tiny wang Sordak, as an assassin you have to get right in close behind them, and after you;ve hit and been discovered you have to fight with two daggers that compensate for something. They rely on low damage weopens moving agile and quick. They (Usually) dont have backup like a follower and have to rely on wits to get them in and out of the frey. To be an assassin you need the courage to get behind your opponent without them noticing you and then dispatch them.
Sordak you sound as if you have never played an assassin because it can be quite difficult

I find Khajiit to be the best Assassins due to their early perks in sneak, one handed and archery. Lore wise they are agile and quick, aswell as intelligent (Went not high on Skooma)

I prefer Khajiits and Argonians, but any other races would do. Both races get bonuses in Sneak, but that can be easily matched with any other character. Argonians are more if you expect to be stealing stuff more, and Khajiits are more for assassins. And Sordak... this is why you're on my ignore list.

assasins hard to play? no. definitly not.
Stealth classes are amongst the easiest to play in MMORPGs.

On Argonians: only shadowscales. Your general perception of argonians is wrong and nothing but.
Khajiits are thieves traditional. Why would argonians be good at stealing? They come from a swamp, they have no expirience with cities.
While the Khajiit come from a culture in wich "ownership" is a very loose term.
Argonians extent of sneaking is used in Ambush warfare rather than stealing.

On you ignoring me: and this is why you have no idea of the lore.

Don't take it personal guys, Sordak has a irrational hate for stealth classes :P


The Redguard whom will pin your foot to the ground with an Ice Spear and watch as his Daedroth eats you alive.

@Sordak, Khajiit knows not what 'stealing' is as we do not know the concept of 'ownership', and the reputation of thieves is given to us from the naked skinned ones after many Khajiit who emigrated Elsweyr took some bread or ale to feed them selves after a hard day of labour...

If many Khajiit then went on to get a career in the thieves guild, it is only the man and mer to blame, as they rather punish that poor Khajiit instead of teaching the unlucky Khajiit about the ways of the new lands...

Yes Khajiit is sneaky, yes Khajiit is good with the bow and dagger, but Khajiit is NO thief by choice... and that the poor naked skinned ones can't handle our skooma is not ours to blame, so it is unfair to forbid our Moon Sugar and Skooma while not forbidding your Alcohol...



Va Khaj Dar, To be Desert Thief, is not only our name.
It is also our way of life.

stop defending your race.
The khajiit are universally known for stealing.

The thing is that they dont neccesarily view it as a bad thing.

Again. the problem with people trying to apply people logic to fictional races they know nothing about.

racist :P not all khajiit are thieves! just 100% of the ones i have met are.

though i think to say all khajiit are thieves is like saying all nords are big bulky racist warriors. most may be like that but not all.
sterotypes are fun and easy to use but remove depth.

on topic, i think what ever race you want will be best for an assassin, thus when you enter the dark brother hood you see that they have every race as part of this origination. if you can play as a (cowardly) sneaky assassin race doesn't come into it and i doubt those 1 or 2 points racial stat points (if zeni choose to have them) would matter :)

Based on Skyrim stats, the Khajiit would obvlously make the best Pure-Assassin type class, they're just suited for it... But, as far as ESO, we have NO idea, more likely Bosmer will be suited to the job, since I think Khajiit are being dubbed, the tanks of the Dominion.

lore wise neither of them makes sense.
Typical assasins in lore are Dunmer Morag Tong assasins, Argonian Shadowscales (not playable), Reachmen Spellswords / Nightblades, Imperial agents, orma poisoners and of course the Dark Brotherhood that is not bound to any race.

tbf i think there will be darkbrotherhood quests and they will be available to everyone regardless of race or class (this is what i think may happen and is not say that this WILL be how the final game does it) so even in oblivion or skyrim as a warrior in a heavy armor i was still a dark brotherhood 'assassin' and i sure as hell didn't play as an assassin i may of lost a few bonuses in doing so mind you :P
but that is why i like the dark brotherhood they don't care who you are only as long as you can do the task at hand.

assasin doesnt mean sneaky type.
Pretty sure most real life assasins werent like that (They were not ninjas afterall)

I did play some of the Dark Brotherhood too but i gotta say i enjoy all the other playstyles more.
The idea of festus krex to friendly introduce yourself and melt his face off is a sweet one.
And i also like the idea of the veiled knight just going in kicking everyone aside, killing that guy with an axe and then walking away.

yep i did word that incorrectly which went against the point i was trying to make ... silly me :P but yeah i think the question should be more
'wat race is the best suited for an sneaky guy who does back stabs and stuff' not
'wat race is the best suited for an assassin?' because any one can be an assassin. you just have to kill people sneakiness doesn't really come into it. i always like to know my victims last words before i kill them :P

The thing is Khajiit outside of Elsweyr usually are thieves, in Elsweyr they perform to what the city needs. In Elsweyr there are probably heaps of warrior type people, and we know this because apparently this is the role they are to play in TESO. And while you may dispise assassins and such it is a good role to play and it has one of the best guild storylines within Skyrim with (SPOILER) typical, most of the DB gets wiped out sort of thing, and getting to (MASSIVE SPOILER - END OF DB STORYLINE) kill the emporer is pretty good aswell. Walking through the ship and dispatching all that are before me sneakily gives a good feeling. (END OF SPOILER) Assassins have major disadvantages aswell and alot of problems cannot be overcome by sneakiness alone, like boss fights.
