Rainer notices that When ever there is a race poll, Dumer always win.

does that say something about Morrowind popularising the Dark Elf?

Yes, especially since Dunmer are pretty much the most balanced race. I.E. They can be anything... unfair, maybe. But thier not really the best in anything either.

But that is also the case for Argonians and Imperials...

Just the whole "Elf" craze, Rainer thinks.

I prefer Bretons, becuase they have the appearance and demeanor of Imperials with a fraction of the High Elven mana-boost. If you plan on using no magic, Imperials are just as good. I generally dislike the elven races (including orcs), and I'm not particularly fond of Argonians either, despite their natural benefits. For a pure warrior I have to vote the Redguards.

BEST LIST
(1) Breton
(2) Imperial
(3) Redguard

WORST LIST
(1) Orc
(2) Bosmer
(3) Altmer

Altmer would be number two on the 'Wost List' but they contributed to the creation of Bretons. biggrin.gif

It was an Elf craze... dang elf crazes...

Bretons are pretty much the best if you're a mage though... a Magicka bonus, no weaknessess and you get Dragon Skin. Not to mention the extra skill points in nearly all magic types...

Let's see.

1: Breton (Actually cool looking and good mages with average combat performance. The Dragon Skin can help a lot.)

2: Redguard. (Hands down, the gods of the battlefield. Unmatched in pure combat with only Orcs and Nords coming close. Average Magicka capability. Resistance to diseases and poison. Adrenaline Rush. Need I say more? Unfortunately, they look ugly in my opinion. My Redguard never went out without a good helmet.)

3: Khajitt. (Umm, I like cats. The fur is nice in case of cold weather. Quick, agile and punching masters. Downsides, no boots and no good helmets.)

4: Argonian. (Cool looking lizards, yeah! Decent resistances and a spear bonus. Downsides, 60 seconds waterbreathing each day is a lousy power and easily beaten by level 1 characters with a spell! Also, no boots and helmets like the Khajitt.)

I would go with Dunmer... my first *good* character was a dunmer (custom) battlemage.

Bretons are also good though. I made a nice Mage/Theif hybrid. I The magic resistance means you can take a magic enhancing sign (I forget the one...) and get the extra spell points, while having the weakness to magic that the sign gives you cancelled out. At least I hope thats how it worked.

I like Imperials and Dunmer overall for their versatility, but right now I'm RPing as a Nordic Bard named Roggar, who is quite fun.

No race is fun to play in Morrowind except Khajiits.

I will say this, mostly as a Morrowind player. The height problems that I experienced with Wood Elves, not to mention their nearly unanimous 'twerpy' personalities (the ONLY Bosmer I could tolerate was named Aengoth the Jeweler) makes them, hands down, my least favorite race.

Bosmer are Tamriel's version of short-guys with attitude problems. I personally believe that the Morrowind design team, in addition to being Duke fans, based the Wood Elves off of Curley in Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men." There is no other explanation for their annoyance, as well as height impediments.

Almost as bad are the Altmer, who can get wasted with the effort of a God's Fire spell. I once used Trueflame to hunt down every High Elf I could kill that was still alive. None lasted more than a few hits.

As far as the rest, I found that Bretons made for great mage-hunters (especially since my limited experience in Oblivion showed just how imbalanced the stealth and magic aspects were), and Nords and Redguards were good on the warrior front, especially with their resistances. Imperials, Dark Elves, and Argonians were the 'balanced races,' though to be fair Dark Elves did get cooler bonuses and the more useful (for Morrowind, anyways) flame resistace.

But, all in all, I always ended up going Nord or Dark Elf.

Wow, I totally agree about Wood Elves and Curley from Of Mice and Men. Very nice analogy. :clap:
