Best Recruits for the Blades (Bring a follower to Delphine)

#1WellerspearPosted 1/11/2012 6:42:06 PM
Blades Armor in TES:V Skyrim is Heavy Armor only. This means that anyone you're looking to recruit into the Blades lacking the Heavy Armor skill tree will be at a disadvantage. Also, Blades use One-handed and Block. And unless you want Blades who cannot attack flying dragons, I suggest choosing recruits with Archery or Destruction. The following names listed are the most desirable followers to recruit into the Blades (Based on the criteria above):

Onmund (Male Nord Sorcerer)
J'zargo (Male Khajiit Sorcerer)
Uthgerd the Unbroken (Female Nord Warrior)
Kharjo (Male Khajiit Warrior)
Borgakh the Steel Heart (Female Orc Warrior)
Ria (Female Imperial Warrior)

erm thats nice but, oh say if you induct someone in who is a light armor specialist they will choose their light armor you give them over the blades armor. same goes for things like weapons...if they have a two handed weapon and are good at two hand they will use it over blades sword and shield. fyi.

Yes, but then they're not using Blades Armor. What kind of Blade doesn't use Blades Armor? I'm not sure if you're aware or not, but every Blade in TES:IV Oblivion wore Blades Armor. Also, my topic is titled "Best Recruits for the Blades," not "The only Recruits for the Blades."

Ghorbash Iron-Hand and Cosnach.

I also took Uthgerd. I basically took everyone who made me brawl them to become a follower.

Cosnach is also a good choice (Male Breton Warrior). However, Ghorbash Iron-Hand specializes in Light Armor, and Blades Armor is Heavy.

Yeah, but he's BIG. I figured they needed a little diversity. Too many women and old men.

True. But who would want to give up their personal bodyguards? Especially if you refused to kill Paarthurnax (Who taught men how to Shout) and Delphine goes all PMS and refuses to help you.
