In my opinion it would be the AD, and not just because I am a Bosmer.

The Altmer are known for their magic so this would make them ideal healers, Bosmers are considered the best archers so this would make them a very good DPS player and finally a Kajit in heavy armour would not make a bad tank!

And I know classes are very versatile in ESO but this would make most sense to me!

So..... What's your opinion?

Long Live Queen Ayrenn and the Triumph of the Dominion!

I think it's the Daggerfall Covenant because I'm pretty sure the Bretons are best with healing magic, the Redguards are the best with one-handed weapons, and the Orcs are the best with heavy armour and blocking.

That's a fair enough point I won't argue with it!

Khajiit
Well even though I am in the dominion, I don't think as far as reputations of the races are concerned, the dominion fills the trinity as well as the other two. By reputation, khajiit and bosmer are both stealthy characters. Since bosmer are known for archery, they might be able to fill the dps role, altmer of course would be the healers which leaves the khajiit for the tank. And while generally tougher than bosmer, I don't think it's to the point that they are quickly associated with the tank class.

With the ebonhart pact, is it a little easier. Nords would naturally be suited to the tank class, dunmer as the healers since they have the best magical perks, but they might also be easily associated as dps because of their excellence with destruction magic. This leaves argonians who like bosmer and khajiit are most associated with stealth as scouts. They would be left as the best candidates for dps simply because there is no other role that they could easily fill.

Daggerfall by far best fulfills the trinity. Bretons not only have the best magic of the covenant, but their magic resistance helps too. Orcs, like nords, are known for being tanks, and red gaurd having reputation as highly skilled warriors easily fill the dps slot.

Just as a reminder, my analysis is based solely on the general reputations of the races. In game, any race will be able to fit any role based on the individuals playstyle

I have to agree, Daggerfall fits the Trinity best, no stretching needed. ^-^

Alas, I have to admit you have put up to good an argument! I agree that on paper the Daggerfall Covenant fits the Trinity best, but in the end it will come down to the players controlling the characters and the choices they make.

See you on the battlefield!

I personally love the idea of Argonian Scouts, Dunmer spellcasters, and Nord Tanks because these roles best suit those three races... I could be gravely wrong here, but this is just my straightforward (sometimes naive) opinion. C :


Why did I have to be THE DRAGON BORN ? :c

Lore-wise, the Khajiit fulfill the trinity on their own -- spellcasting Dagi, warrior Cathay, and stealthy Ohmes and Suthay.


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.

Yes, but that doesn't forge the trinity. The trinity consists of:

-Tank

-DPS

-Healer

Unless you mean healing by spell casters.

DC. No question in my mind! It's almost unfair, how perfect we are!
