i am making this a new topic because i love to play as a archer and it is my Favorited class in all mmo's. this is just a general discussion on what race you will choose and what alignment you will go with. weather you are a ranger who likes to use heavy Armour or a ranger who likes to mix it with a little magic then this is a good place to discus what you are choosing and why

PS: this is also a place where you can ask about what class other people think you should use for your playing type

I'm gonna be an Argonian, mainly because I dislike elves so Khajiit were out, and all my friends are either Argonians or Nords XD.
Non biased wise, Bosmer (wood elves) technically make the best archers, lore wise. But, of course, any race can be a great archer :). I'm gonna be a light armored archer, who is like an assassin, basically. "Pure Thief, born and bred."
I quoted myself there, and I never said it before either. Non existent quote much?

1. It already doesn't matter what race you're using.
2. The game used a soft lock system in the alpha, but that might change.

Yeah, like Knightmare said, this games probably gonna be like the other ES games, in that some races get a head start in some places, but any race can be a good class. Orcs can be good mages, Altmer can be good warriors, it just takes a bit long :).

I believe Bosmer would be the race that bows suit them best, but what we have learned throughout the TES series is to make whatever character we want and make them use whatever ability and gear we want. What I mean is that every race can be good at everything if you mainly play with the gear you like most.
For example, in Skyrim I decided to make a Dunmer assassin and a Khajiit mage, even though everyone could tell that the opposite would be better...but still, I liked it like this and did it and there was no drawback to that selection I made ;)

The best race for ranging stuff is always a Nord, especially one in robes while wielding a katana.

How about "no." The best race for archers is wood elf. I know it sucks because they're so damn ugly, but its the truth and their archery level is higher because of their natural skill as hunters and "nature people" or whatever you want to call them. after that would be Khajiit because of their sneak and acrobatics. And then id say Argonian or redgaurd, if your going for the whole thief thing but thats where it gets a little less black and white. Thumbs_up so thats about it.


P.S. nords are only good warriors and a little good on the magic side. that is all.

Since when did nords start being good at magic?
