Without training it looks like

Altmer>Breton>Dunmer>Imperials>>>>>>>>>>>>Everyone else

Is that right?

I guess it's partly because of the Altmer's training but... Bretons seem to be slightly weaker mages

Without training, they are all equal.
You know, because without training nobody can use magic.

Magic resistance >>>>>>>> 50 extra magicka. It's far too easy to reduce magic cost (even without breaking the game), and Highborn is only useful once a day. Magic resistance simply gives you survivability, which is what everybody seems to whine about with mages.

Do you mean lore-wise or gameplay-wise?

Look, for the last time: Kirby has explained it over and over!

I meant lore wise but I guess I didn't point it out in my original post...

That Altmer mage chap, the name of whom I can't remember in the Blue Palace, says something to the tune of "for a human, Sybille Stentor has an extraordinary grasp of the arcane arts, even for a Breton," or something like that, so I suppose lore wise Altmer could be considered better. I don't know squat about lore though so I could be, and probably am, wrong.
