Orc or Redguard?

#1lolHadesPosted 2/1/2012 9:55:17 AM
Duel Wield or Sword and Shield?

Heavy Armor vs. Light armor

War axes or Curved Swords



I'm tired of choosing for myself, so you guys tell me what I should play next...


Decisions....decisions......

My next character is going to be a redguard treasure hunter, with a very similar skillset to yours. The only problem is they NERFED reguards from Oblivion, when they actually had useful racials.

I just like Redguards now because they finally elaborated on their culture. Seeing the Al'akir was pretty amazing.


Orc's are just brutal fantasy creatures. Which is awesome.

Yeah....I've already got a Breton.


It's pretty much between these two and the two styles listed. I've done EVERYTHING else.

Nord - Two Hand
Argonian - Mage/sneak
Wood Elf - Archer/sneak
Breton - Pure Mage

Well it depends, Go orc if you want to smash stuff, Go redgaurd if you want to be a thief

Sword and shield is more fun than dual wield in the long run (once the omg i haz two weapons factor wears off.)
#9lolHades(Topic Creator)Posted 2/1/2012 10:47:05 AM
Is it?


I mean whichever is more fun is what I wanna do.


I'm leaning more toward dual wiled Orc and S&S Redguard. Two sword Redguard seems a little odd. Two axe Orc seems brutal.


I don't really know the benefits of a shield though.

I'm thinking if Orc:

One Handed
Smithing
Heavy Armor
Enchant
Maybe something else?

If Redguard:

One hand
Block
Light Armor
Enchant
Something else as well.


I don't know if I wanna roll heavy armor again. I did it with my Nord and it removed all challenge from the game. Plus it always looks stupid without a helm. I could always crank up the difficulty though. I don't know what the benefits of Light armor are yet though.

Orcs have no passive, but Berserker Rage is very good.

Redguards have poison resistance and Adrenaline Rush, both of which suck. Redguards are tied with Khajiit for being the most useless race in the game.
