Wouldn't it be cool to have certain races to have certain war cries or war chants before going into battle or whatever?

Example for the Redguard (assuming not all redguards look like North Africans. Maybe some help here from our lore expert @Sordak ?)

Id sure love it.
And yeah i always wanted the redguard to be more like the zulu.

Marching songs in general are amazing. TES should have more of em.
Especialy since they are mentioned in skyrim.
War skalds and all that.

Make an emote for it? I don't know if it'd work but would seem like an easy way to do it.


Fight for something to die for, because living for nothing really isn't worth it.

Maybe there will be a racial specific War Cry ability? From an RP perspective we can just about shout anything we want.

Yeah, correct. I guess if they do add racial extra's that Nords will still have their "Battle Cry".

I don't know, seeing some footage they just go stand ready. And does everyone wants to wait for even a minute of war-crying every single time?

Still, would be cool though, but I wouldn't hope for it!

Like in chivalry medieval warfare, they had a war chant and you could (for example) bash your shield. And battles should be full of war cries, that would make them more realistic.

But I would hate when youre not in a battle and someone would be screaming war cries :P

attack silently and when we get close to the enemy and roar like lions


One of the Redguard presets in Skyrim looks just like me...... :)

It was the regiment of Gloucester, my home town who fought the Zulus at rorke's drift.

While Redguards share an certain inspiration with African Ancestry I feel like this sort of thing would be more expectant of the Beast Races (Khajiit, Argonian) or Orcs than of Redguards. It's been said that most Redguards go into a meditative-like state when fighting and prefer to fight they're own battles alone on the field of war. War Chants are a way to convey unity, not isolationism.

@Shintome

That's a good point. I think it would be a rahter cool thing for the khajiits or argonians to do. However they seem quite silent and focused beast men. Know what I mean? Serene, calm, sharp and focused. Ready to fight.

Though on the other hand I could definitely see them roaring, chanting and shouting like barbarians.

You may have a point for Argonians, though in lore Khajiits are very unified fighters who display aggression clearly in battle. I can understand the confusion though, in most of the Elder Scrolls games they have been shown to be much more deceptive and isolated. The reason for this is that most any Khajiit who is not in Elsweyr is an outcast who has been banished from their motherland. These Khajiit are most usually real criminals who now have to fend for themselves in the outside world. This tends to make them suspicious and isolated. I believe once ESO launches and travel in Elsweyr becomes possible many people will see another side to Khajiit that they've never seen before.

Anyhow along with Khajiit and Orcs, I believe (while not so spiritualistic) that Nords are also very capable of War Chants and I hope to see them in the game one way or another. (In WoW some guilds would make they're members sing during raids and during pvp to help unify each other. While I never experienced this firsthand I had always heard it had a positive impact on group relations and cooperativeness.)
