I thought orcs were mostly warhammer users, seeing if someone disagrees. I feel nords are both battleaxe and greatsword. --- PS3 - Wii - 360 - PSP - PC Gamer Intel i5-2500k - Asus P8P67 Pro B3 Rev - EVGA GTX 570 - 8GB G.SKILL RipJaws X DDR3 1600MHZ
If a Khajiit doesn't have to be a sneaky thief, then a Nord doesn't have to be a barbaric knuckle-dragger.
Your weapon choice is irrelevant to your race choice, and each race will have relatively equal skill with whatever weapon you choose. However, not all races are equal in certain areas. For instance, Orcs and Redguards have racial daily powers that predispose them towards warrior classes, with Orcs being able to take and deal much more damage, while Redguards can spam away with the power attacks. Nords, on the other hand, don't have any such predisposition. Their daily is a fear, and their racial passive is frost resist. What I mean to say is any race can make good use of any weapon, and no one race is predisposed to a specific weapon type. However, each race IS predisposed to using certain tactics.
For instance, let's take Altmer and their High Born daily. While this doesn't appear to help them in two-hander combat, it's still a very useful tool. You can cast cloaks, and runes to set up a sort of dead-zone before combat, then perhaps calm or paralyze some of your foes. If your magicka is low, you can pop high born and keep it going to perhaps summon an atronach or dremora lord, or even to conjure your own battle axe before closing in for melee :3
