i know wood elves
but i know that archery and the like are not like mage where high elf has an advantage over all other mage classes.
so do any other of the other classes have an advantage in archery like a passive damge bounus with bows?or the only diffrence for archery is the starting stat increases?

if it all boils down to starting stats,what class has the best racial traits for pretty much a pure bow user?

Wood elf probably. Dunmer also get an archery bonus, though it's smaller.

You'll also be sneaking alot, so maybe khajit, as they can see in the dark, but their archery skills won't be directly benefited.

Best class? Probably mage with Invisibility.

The racial bonuses are 5 and 10, meaning they matter for exactly 10 minutes.
Sometimes, all you've got left is a bullet and a prayer.
Don't miss.

All of the racial bonuses can be found here:

Using this chart, it is obvious that all races can be a stealth/archer. All you have to do is improve those skills and put perks into those trees.
Finding the Fiji Mermaid is like playing Calvinball. You can never do it the same way twice.
Please read the FAQs and stickies before asking questions.

Also, Bosmer (Wood Elves) are a joke, their racial power is outdone by a similar Dragon Shout (which can be used multiple times per hour, let alone per day).

i have boiled it down too 3 classes


so what are you guys opinions on making these guys a pure bow/stealth class.

on the assumption that all "stealth" classes only matter becouse of the starting bounus
i have picked these due to there racial abilites.

so what you guys think/opnions?
also is my assumption correct? the "stealth" classes only matter for there starting stats,and other then that all classes are pretty much the same in the way of stealth stats?

Doesn't really matter, as the wood elf companion in the very first town trains your archery skills up to 50 for free.

Stealth is also pretty easy to upgrade (just rubberband your controller near a guard outside Whiterun).

So pick whatever race you like best.
