So I'm choosing the Imperial race, and I'll like to know which faction would be the best to join LORE-WISE (Mainly Ebonheart, or Aldmeri), and also, do you think the Imperials are better suited with a sword and shield/dual swords, or the Nords? Lore-wise also.

Thanks for replying!

I'm not just saying this because I'm in the DC, but lore wise that would make the most sense to them. Imperials are all about law and order while EP brings none of that to the table. And while AD does, no human in their right mind would allow themselves to be crushed under the boot of an oppressive elf overlord.

I believe the Imperials are best suited to the Pact, Purely on the basis that their homeland and everything they had has been shattered by Molag Bal.
On a PvE perspective EP is necessity, Imperials need help, EP is the only one open to forging alliances with enemies.
You also have to consider Tiber Septim was a Nord, who started service under an Imperial.
My puzzling of it together says, EP wins the throne, gives it to the rightful owner the imperials, as lets face it, the 3 EP races don't care too much about world domination..
From there the link between the Nords and Imperials is set ready for Tiber to roll in.

I could be very wrong, but that is how things in my mind play out.

Imperials like heavy armor and sword/shield in most TES, but I have no idea for TESO as I haven't seen anything on their passives. As for lore I'd say daggerfall or ebonheart. Daggerfall wishes for order and a new empire pretty much so they are the most imperial like. Ebonheart wishes to establish peace and order, though they don't necessarily want a new empire they want to maintain their independence. Skyrim is almost always a voluntary member of the empire and could be trusted with control of cyrodil. I'd assume Nords and Imperials would have generally good relations.

Edit- I'm an Imperial and I'm going daggerfall if your wondering of a fellow imperial's opinion.

I agree with Avidus. The EP are the most likely faction to hand Cyrodill back to the Imperials after the war.

The Redguards wouldnt trust the Imperials to protect them against the Elves and the Bretons seem obsessed with money and power. Fair enough the Orcs just want their city and to be left alone but lets face it, the Orcs are the third wheel in the Covenant and no one will listen to them.

Ebonheart Pact, seeing that during the 2nd era if you asked Breton's the question Man or Mer their answer was Mer. Both housed a good population of Imperials, Skyrim and High Rock. But it would make more sense for Imperial to retreat to Ebonheart Pact, especially since large areas of southern Skyrim housed Colovians. Not to mention that the power hungry Bretons of that era certainly wouldn't hand the Ruby Throne away if they had control of such thing. Nords? Imperials would be fine with a Nedic on the throne, wouldn't be the first one, if I am correct. Dunmer don't care about the Ruby Throne, unless House Indoril suddenly becomes insanely power hungry (And in recorded history the Three have possessed no interest in Ruby Throne the way we fight over it in 2E). Argonians, well they may want their Black Marsh completely under their control, but that's more of a border / internal conflict that controlling the heart of Tamriel.

Though I agree on the points of why the pact would be a good choice, I also would like to point out that the bretons and redguards just want to reestablish the empire. Imperials have never had a problem with someone of non imperial ancestry on the throne, so why a nord and not a breton. Also why would the redguards distrust the imperials at this time and why are the bretons suddenly pro mer? Not sure if missed something of the time period, the bretons should actually have a general dislike for elves since they were slaves until the Nords liberated them.

DC. The Bretons. Are devout followers to the empire, and the imperials would have the easiest time adapting to the lifestyle of the covenant. Ep wouldn't be good for a couple reasons: they all want to remain indepdendant. The covenant wants to restore the empire, whereas the Pact just wants everyone to rule their own country.

I was under the impression that Hammerfell was basically given over to the Altmer by the Imperials and the Redguards were left to fend for themselves.

Or did this happen after the events in ESO?

this is second era, that is fourth era. A good amount of time difference.

i would think Daggerfall honestly. I have nothing to quote this on, but i was under the impression that Bretons and Imperials had good relations for the most part. and i think i read somewhere that king Emeric wanted to restore the Reman Dynasty or something about he was next in line to the Reman line or soemthing.

like i said, please dont quote me on that, its just what i thought read soemwhere

I don't know. I sort of have a different take on this.

The Imperials are imperials. They want to be on the winning side, whatever the winning side is. They don't have any respect for the values or the races of Tamriel. They just want influence and control. So I think that they could fit anywhere.

Well, it DEFINITELY (In my opinion with logic) would not be with the AD. They only want elves to rise up, so unless your imp wants Elves in power, they'd go to either the Pact or the Covenant.
