I always go by what kind of Character I wish to Roleplay as so I can't give you a ''good'' answer to your question. Both races have really great Lore though.

I think Orcs are awesome if you're into the "I'm awesome, look at me, I'm gonna smash stuff" .. and all around to me they seem to be more of a "game" character.

Nord seem to be pretty traditional, and for those of you who want to be a viking. If you don't like Snow.. this is not the race for you.

Nords are mainly light armoured where as Orcs are heavy. Aside for that they're the same.

Lore-wise, they're pretty similar, both have clan loyalties and both believe in strength or courage.
I'd say go for Nords if you're into the whole Beowulf and Viking stuff. Orcs aren't really centered on anything on Earth (apart from my allusions to the Scottish Highlanders but I've already been rebuked about that), but on the plus side, they look cool.

I'd say the Nords,because to me they have a cool lore and they are the people of the North,so the Nords is my choice.

Orcs and Nords are not melee classes, they are actual races

From game mechanic point of view there will not be any difference at all, it has been decided specific to prevent "best melee race" if thats what you mean

Difference would be purely in the lore so everyone is free to choose whatever he likes and guys above me gave you enough hints

Not really true. While hunting and gathering is part of Nordic culture, there are centuries -- millenia even -- of heavily armored warriors in Nord lore.

Both Orcs and Nords vary in their usage of armor.

From a loreperspective, orcs are the tougher race, but that said, nords can still beat them in a fair fight, its not just as likely (if on equal terms). Both have sufficient lore, but nords have more, mainly because of TES V:Skyrim. However, Orsinium will be in TESO and I for one am really looking forward to see that.

It's all a matter of choosing for yourself, something Zenimax and Beth's been really keen on keeping in TESO.


If an argonian turned into a werecrocodile would there be any difference in appearance? Like, at all?

I think also nords give more into fights as they have the whole "You must earn your place in sovngarde" type thing.

Equal with Orcs, Malacath despise cowardice and weakness
