Topic says it all. What race is fighting for Cyrodill for the right reasons? I plan on having 2 mains, my Khajiit because I’ve always had a Khajiit, and another race that I haven’t decided on….

The nords and the EP are doing it for religious reasons, to get rid of the deadra. The Bretons and DC are doing it for political reasons, and want to unite tamriel under one leadership. The altmer and AD are doing it because they believe elves are superior and wish to take advantage of the weak leadership of Cyrodil to take over. That's what I read or saw in a video somewhere, may not be 100% true, but I'm fairly sure it came from the developers. Hope it helps :)

I would say that the EP are fighting for the right reason out of all three.

Define "right".

The Pact is fighting in order to defend their homes and cultures. It will likely be a temporary alliance, due to interracial hostilities.

The Covenant seeks to establish and maintain a stable, united empire ('cause, y'know, the current one ain't doin' so hot right now).

The Dominion has similar goals to the Covenant, but believe Men are rather poor rulers. They're kinda like, "Move over, dawg; I got this sh¡t."


Honestly, I wouldn't focus on goals so much as which race I favor, if I were you. I support the Dominion's goals, but I really just love High Elves! :D


By arrow. By blade.
By tooth. By claw.
By shock. By frost. By flame.
The Aldmeri Dominion will dominate Tamriel.
Our enemies will fall until the Throne is ours.

I would say they the AD have the most refined reasons for this. They have seen the corruptness of the Imperial throne at the hands of men and have decided that enough blood has been spilled for petty reasons for control. And the only way to make all the blood which has been spilled not in vain, is to spill even more to make sure that it ends. For they understand how to govern things.

There is no "right" reason. Each faction approaches the crisis in Cyrodiil from a different perspective, which is fueled by different experiences, cultures and histories. Everyone feels that they're fighting for the "right" reasons, and with respect to their own geopolitical and security interests, they are.

That is partly right but it's also because Queen Ayrenn wants to kill Abnur Tharn, for personal reasons.

I added most of that for my own reasons. Although I would say that some of those personal reasons are not so dissimilar to why she wages war. He is corrupt. And I heard, a sexual deviant.

It's all a matter of opinion.

For me:

The AD has simply a "Nazi" objective, We are "Elfs with Cats as pets" therefore We should rule the world and execute the rest.
(Khajiits were slaves of Altmer)

The EP has true concerns about the problems that are happening in Cyrodill, but they are basicly enemies glued together.
(Argonians were slaves of Dark Elves)

"In fact, enslavement of Humans, Orcs, Argonians and Khajiit by Elven races was traditionally permitted."

The DC wants to transform Cyrodill in a human empire, they want to install democracy, but in a way its the same as the AD, just because they are humans they think they should rule Cyrodill.
(Bretons saved the Orcs from Altmer attacks)

From a true reason point of view I think the EP has the strongest reason, they want to get rid of the evil there.

The reason I didn't choose EP is because they are over-populated, they are enemies of each other and they even enslaved on of their members like AD with Khajiits.

I have chosen DC because We are the only ones trully united (No slaves), We have no sheeps that were enslaved and now help their masters, We are the Underdogs, I get to play Humans and We have a damm awesome Banner with my favorite symbol of all, Lion!
