What class have you chosen and why?
Edit: Oops, I meant races.
I usually go for the safest dullest race/class in RPGs - Human/citizen (or Nord) Warrior, but this time around I wanted to try something a little different.
Archery looked great in the footage I've seen, so I went with the Wood Elf. He can also sneak and lockpick well, so that's good.
I hope I can upgrade my character to be powerful enough with swords and spell combat, while focusing on his specialties.
Not sure if the "Command Animals" power will be useful enough for me to use it frequently.. Here's hoping I'll get into a lot of fights with bears nearby!
I chose Imperial, because it's described as a kind of middle road "skilled in both combat and magicka" and because getting a little extra gold tends to help in most games.
Frankly, I was tempted to spend a large amount of time researching online what the most useful of the classes would be. The reptile that can breathe underwater and is resistant to poisons sounded useful, but I wasn't sure how useful so I chose a more reliable fighting character. I wasn't interested in being an archer/magic user first time through so High Elf and Wood elf were off the list. I also didn't want to focus on melee necessarily, so Orc wasn't an option. The others seem to be balances in between.
I chose the most middle of the road character I could for my first time through the game. Already I know I'll be making a High Elf second time through.
Nord, because they are good with two-handed swords and the fear sounded useful (and it was against the first Frost Troll I encountered). Edit: I wanted to go Orc ever since I saw the first screenshot of one, but the fact that they are good with heavy armor made them a no-go for me. Sticking with light armor for sure, at least for this playthrough.
Argonian, because they look amazing and are different. Racist terms I've been called so far:
''little elf'' (huge wtf on that one)
foreigner in THAT tone
It's nothing close to Morrowind yet, where I played as redguard and was called outlander about 500000000 time over the course of my massive 300 hour playthrough. But it is hilarious when people just straight up call you lizard.
Wanted a Kahjit for the nightvision, but they just look too weird. So I went with a bearded and very human-like Wood Elf with some scary facepaint.
Sneak attacks with bows are amazing and have allowed me to kill some rather difficult mobs (shoot, run away and hide, rinse and repeat) - my only problem is that dungeons take forever to crawl through.
I wanted to roll a Khajiit but i figured that they would be too weird for them to be a dragonborn, so i went with a Nord instead. i want to use my bow a lot more as want to be stealthy, but rolling around with dual maces is too good to pass right now, also, crouching along all the way to Riften from Whiterun is a bitch, but im levelling like a boss that way so it pays off in the end i guess.
