What are the benefits/differences between the alliances? I read all the lore and yeah, yeah, cool but I want to know the practical info. I feel like I really need to think very long and hard, its a big decision and I only got 72 hours to make it...

I think i will be the wood elf. Ive been considering this awhile, but I really dont want to do another mage like I always do. I want to do an absolutely insane archer.

I mean, yeah, AD is pretty. But have you seen EP's wicked landscape? Twisted trees of all colors, ash falling as snow, volcanoes suddenly exploding... It doesn't get better than this.

I live in a temperate climate much lik Cyrodiil irl so Daggerfall Covenant felt right at home for me once you get out of Stros M'Kai i like the trees and elven architecture is alien looking

I'd say AD... It has the most beautiful and serene landscapes... The Altmeri architecture is graceful and delicate... And the Bosmer live in Trees... TREES!!!

The Dominion has a range of climates a bit more appealing than EP's Ashlands, Snowfields and Swamps... Or DC's deserts and temperate mountains that are highly similar both architecture wise and climate wise to Cyrodiil which everyone will experience anyway...
We have the Desert dunes of Elsweyr and it Savanna plains, We have Elsweyr's Tropical Tenmar rain-forest and Valenwoods untouched pure jungles and woodlands... We have the rolling hills, beauteous cities, delicate forests and picturesque gardens of the Summerset Archipelago... It really doesn't get better...

It really depends landscape wise whether you like the stereotypical medieval kingdom style or Egyptian/African style of DC... Or the Harsh Nordic and Exotic styles of the EP... Or the serene calm of the AD...

Well in the end you will be playing through all alliances territories, so pick whichever you feel interests you more. Whether it's race wise, lore wise, or because you like the alliance symbol or name.

Not Set
If your a dunmer, nord, or argonian go ebonheart, if your altmer, bosmer, or khajiit go aldmeri, if your orc, redguard, or breton go daggerfall. But if you want to play as the underdog go dc. If you want to play with the alliance with the most people go ep, or if you want to be in the middle go ad. Then it depends on the races you like and where you want to explore so if you like argonians go ep and so on. And maybe if your interested in a place say like daggerfall then choose dc. And whatever alliance you want to fight against be the opposite of.

Why do you think the least amount of people will go DC?

its the least popular right now. skyrim made everyone want to be nords and the scenery made everyone want to go AD so that leaves boring DC.

daggerfall is definitely the least impressive scenery-wise but I enjoyed the quests there more than I did in AD. At the end of the day though, if you plan on getting to the veteran ranks you'll be playing in all three areas anyway~ :P
