So I am in the beta, won't say more than that, but it seems as if the Aldmeri Dominion races suck for a heavy armor, melee dragonknight!

I have been playing a khajit, but the other two alliances have great all around races for every archtype, where as I feel as if we are lacking.

Question is: I think I will be importing a Redguard into the Aldmeri Dominion with the pre-order thingy. Anyone else feel the same way and will be importing another race to our dominion for one reason or another?

Could you please explain why they AD suck? My Khajiit sword & shield, Templar with Heavy Armour, is pretty ok.
Much better than my Khajiit Nightblade with dual weapons and Medium Armour, that had on previous beta session.

There is no different what race you choose. the 5% faster training is pretty menial.
As for the passive bonuses, others will put the points on Race skills others on Heavy Armour skills.
However both have the same points to spare on that area, if of course one of them doesn't spent at all any point on Class or weapon skills. Which ofc will make him a gimped char.

The passives just don't add up to what the other races have, everything we have is geared towards rogues and mages.

The Khajit were the best choice for a tanky, melee dps player but they still don't have the stuff the other races have.

The passive a won't matter that much at high levels.

Isnt the whole point that you can do whatever you want with every race? What is the problem being Heavy armor/melee with Altmer.... Surely the beginning might be tough but in time its easier.

I guess. I mean why not maximize your output potential? Im sure every race can tank raid mobs, but why not get yourself set up with the best possible potential for what you want to do?

archery -> wood elf
magic -> high elf
etc

Because TES has always been about being who you want to be in a as detailed as possible fantasy setting of Tamriel...

Please specify what you mean... I do play for Myself and only for my pleasure... If I did not find it pleasurable I wouldn't play it...

You sound like a high elf haha :P

I find it pleasurable to win. Winning the easiest way possible seems like a good idea to me. Play the best race/class combo for what you want to do.

It seems that you sound like a high elf. To you its all about winning, i play for pleasure and to escape this world to fantasy world.

Off course it is nice to win sometimes but its not all about that. If its all about winning and you play just because of that it seems like work... And its not fun.

i dont care winning that much that i have to have the best possible output. Im loyal to Altmers and thats it, i wanna be healer/archer/swordsman... But it doesnt stop me if im Altmer.

If you cannot be who you want in this game because of desire to win easily as possible..... then its kind of sad.

I don't really see how any of the racial skills cater to certain classes. None of them really make you do more damage or live longer, they all just seem to make weapon leveling faster and simple things like that.

they don't, but certain racials and classes can make a better playstyle. Like one races racials may give more health or better heavy armor usage while a certain class can compliment that in a tank build by giving "better" tanking skills.

I did play Darkfall, and oh was it so much fun on release, regardless of how broken it was :P

Exactly what I am getting at ! :D
