My favorite would have to be Dunmer. they kick total boat! biggrin.gif

Zelda_Zealot
Its Bretons, a cross-breeding of Humans and elves (High Elves I think.) that are more on the Human side (Bosmer are a cross-breed on the elven side.), that you forgot about.

I would have to say that Imperials are my favorite race, with a close second of Bosmer.

P.S. Next time just use the EDIT butten just below your post, or else the admins get mad... ph34r.gif

There's only one worthy race, lets be honest here.

And a particularly fine specimen,if I do say so myself, looks a little like this tongue.gif

Of course.

A Altmer is unmistakable. a Imperial less so, but they're recognizable.

I feel a strong connection with the Bretons; I have allot in common with them in the way of personality and preferences.

Yet they're such a Magic intensive Race, and I’ve always been a kind of a thieving wretch. A saint with sticky fingers you might say, none of that implying magic....tragically enough.

But the one race I have the most preference for is the o’ so tragic Argonians. No particular reason, I just think they look cool.
(shallow, shallow, shallow)


With the Khajiit right behind.

From a lore-perspective, my favourite is the Bosmer, but from a gameplay-perspective, it's deinfately Dunmer.
Nashi_Tai
Bosmer all the way!! biggrin.gif

Though for myself I had to tweak the hight, I like both sexes to be short... could never understand why the females where taller then the males. kvright.gif
Kiln
Dunmer for me...they just seem like the race that only take what they need and the fact that they look like awesome warriors.
gamer10
The ruling race of Tamriel for me tongue.gif.

The Imperials.
DoomedOne
I got to go with the Khajiit. Forget their looks, I like the general persona they carry, the humble, wise, almost spiritual identidy.

Gameplay wise, I like the dunmer.
Channler
I don't think I've ever played another race besides Imperial.. soooo...

Imperial 4 teh w1n!11

What gamer said.
Pisces
I like wood elves generally and them being archers are great. However I don't like the short and jolly side of it so being a fan of magic I'd go with altmer. And Khajiit rock. I have no idea what I voted though.
Dantrag
Dunmer.

Ever since I read the drizzt books about 3 years ago, I've had some strange fascination with dark elves.
mplantinga
Breton. I have an unsatiable fascination with magic, so I've played more Bretons than any other race. Somebody will probably say I should be playing Altmer mages, but all those weaknesses make them quite undesirable (at least to me).
Dreadlord7
My First Choice is always the Nords, followed by the redguards. biggrin.gif
Ola Martin
Redguard, because of the endurance bonus, it let me have more health per lvl.
the first three lvls I set 5 points in endurance, so i have max after three lvlups.
xycolian
I'm the only person who voted orc. hip-hip hooray!
Agent Griff
Lore and gameplay wise I like the Redguards even though the Adrenaline Rush makes them too damn powerful. Nords come on a close second though.
1234king
okay i go for redguars the most naturally talented warriors in the game. Actually i only pick them for their adrenaline rush. How can i make them too strong. That's like saying someones too damn sexy. You can never have too much of a good thing. Khajits and Bosmers are tied for second. I like Bosmers for their supreme theiving and asassin skills. And i like Khajits for thier night eye, and eye of fear power. I hate going into dwemer runis and not being able to see. Plus with eye of fear i can resist arrest after i steal something and just cast that on the guard, and he runs like a baby-back bi!@#.
Taillus
Bretons rock bigtime because of the magic!! I just hope that in Oblivion they wont sound so wimpy when you get hit. Everytime my Breton character got hit he sounded like the Census officer at the beginning of Morrowind sitting on a spiked gauntlet. Pathetic really wink.gif

Uh.... I am redguard, and i've used adrenaline rush TWO times huh.gif , And I play with dificulty 100 all the time kvright.gif , redguard rules even without adrenaline rush biggrin.gif
1234king
that was sort of the point i was also making
Aki
I dislike Adrenaline rush, it can kill you if your not careful.

I prefer the Dunmer's ability, Ancestor Guardian. 50 pts. of Sanctuary. Makes you damn hard to hit. MEaning you can fully focus on ripping into the enemy. No loosing time (and thus letting the ability dwindle and run out) being smacked around. biggrin.gif
Sunboom
Dunmer _0_!
DarkHunter
Go Breton!!! The extra magicka is so worth it. Plus u get all kinds of magic bonuses!!! (can't get enough stealth even when i have 90% camo)
Dreamer
I always play Dunmer for the MQs, then I make a Khajiit thief and a Breton mage. I just think they look the coolest, and nords might be better warriors, (my favourite style), but when you get to level eight or so, it doesn't really matter.

haha it sounds like u like ur char. a little too much. haha lolz tongue.gif
Mazelure
You guy's dont know true power until you play as a Nord!... but I must admit that the only ones who rival the awesome power of the Nords are the Bretons... followed by the Dunmer....
The Ascendant
Bretons for my mage characters and Khajiit for any thief characters. Although I prefer being a mage overall... I have a fascination with launching massively overpowered fireballs and watching all my enemies burn up. I don't really play melee characters... or if I do then I back them up with some powerful magicka just in case. And the Breton shield ability can be useful for boosting armour.

OMG IT'S TEH DREADLORD!!!!! ohmy.gif

Anywho biggrin.gif


Rainer thinks his answer is quite obvious...












































Altmer laugh.gif






Rainer also is known to make jokes devilsmile.gif
DarkHunter
Rainer is soon to be known to waste space... tongue.gif

The Kajhit would have to be my all time favorite type of character. They can be very sneaky as well as acrobatic. ^^

But without that huge gap, the Joke wouldn't be as funny.
kbthiede
in order, my top 3 are:
NORD cool.gif
DUNMER
REDGUARD


least favorites:
KAJIIT
BOSMER
Khajiit Overlord Rainer
Rainer notices that When ever there is a race poll, Dumer always win.

does that say something about Morrowind popularising the Dark Elf?
DarkHunter
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.
Legato
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
DarkHunter
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...
dagoth carlos
gahhhh why must i be tormented w/ such questions!!!!!!!!!!! well i want to say nords..... but i also like dunmers.....Why can we pick them both.......

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.)
