Elder Scrolls Online Factions

by Ali, 11 October 2013 @ 05:10


With the release of The Elder Scrolls Online only a mere five months (at least) away, the time has come to ask ourselves which faction we all want to play come the northern spring (playing is not optional you here me everyone?). This has nothing to do with the fact I am stuck in a hotel room bored out of my skull. Anyway here are our options, along with a brief description of the three races in each faction.



Possible Guild Name: Daggerfail

Bretons (aka Half-Elves)

The result of the formation of two groups (i.e. humans and elves), they would be a force to be reckoned with if they could stop the infighting between the main houses. They are basically the ALP. Good magicians.

Redguards (aka western humans)

When their home continent was destroyed, this sea-faring race had to relocate and ended up in a desert. Well played. They make up for that slightly by rocking scimitars. Natural athletes and warriors.

Orsimer (aka Orcs)

What happens when your king is eaten by a daedra (demon) and subsequently crapped out? Well the king turns into a daedra himself and your once elvish race all turn into orcs. Obvious really. I don’t care if they are the supposedly the best warriors in Tamriel, I can’t bring myself to play a race led by a c**p-demon.



Possible Guild Name: Mer and Fur (Mer is the general Elder Scrolls name for the elves)

Altmer (aka High Elves)

These guys are Nazis. Seriously. If you played Skyrim you will know that they are all about returning the superior elven race to power. Kind of irnonic because they are the ugliest representation of elves I have seen in any game. Have an affinity towards magic.

Bosmer (aka Wood Elves)

What’s not to like about the Wood Elves? Except for the fact they are cannibals. The “Green Pact” stops them harming any plants so they chow down on the bodies of vanquised foes. Kind of like psychotic reverse vegetarians (I wouldn’t recommend this race for Andy). If you can get past this, they are the best archers going around.

Khajiit (aka big p*****s)

They are Tamriel’s feline race as well as its drug dealers. Many Khajiit are hooked on “skooma” which is refined “moon sugar”. Sounds a lot like rum to me. Anyway as you would expect for giant cats, they are very stealthy, have claws and tails and look completely bad-a*s.



Possible Guild Name: Dragonporn (actually this would be good for any faction I reckon)

Nords (aka northern humans)

Probably going to be a popular race thanks to Skyrim. Just as well because they are xenophobic, knuckle-dragging meatheads and no-one would like them otherwise. Handy with an axe.

Dunmer (aka Dark Elves)

Sure they are treacherous, oligargarchic, muderous daedra worshipers, but they have blue-black skin and glowing red eyes so they are pretty cool in my book. With a good understanding of both martial and magical arts they are natural battlemages.

Argonians (aka lizardmen)

While there is a lot to like about a race of lizardmen, they ruin this by being even bigger tree-huggers than the Bosmer (except without the cannibalism). And I mean literally tree-huggers – they are effectively ruled by a race of sentient trees called Hist. Stupid. Tough b******s in a fight though.

Techno Viking is coming for you!

Running commentary

  1. Looks alright. Need to see some non-rendered actual gameplay tho.

  2. I dunno about $120 for 30 days play… there’s no offline mode is there? 😉 Do the 5 days early access mean you get 35 days play? I’m guessing not.

    On a positive note, here’s a link that gets Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag thrown in for free:

  3. Good lord that’s bad!

  4. Thanks JP.

    I have to admit that I have become accustomed to chiclet keys having been on the laptop for over a year now. The small travel and big key surface-area is a big plus over mechanical keys IMO. The mechanical keys on the Orbweaver seem nice though.

  5. 0 experience with em, but I just bought a Cherry Black clone (steelseries 6Gv2) and I know my general typing accuracy has gone up, with a noticeable increase in typing speed too.

    So all I can say, is that mechanical is the way to go. But go to a shop and try them out. They are not for everyone…

  6. I will be up for a game. I dont know how well it will run but it is installing now and hopefully will be fully functional if not I probs upgrade is 2 weeks and will be ready to roll then.

  7. Totally, BL2 is still rockin’! Tiny Tina DLC is a hoot 🙂

    They are doing weapon rebalancing at the moment. One weapon at a time, day by day with upped drops (of that weapon) disguised as a contest: (sadly, only americans can win the money and nvidia loot, but we get the drops!)

    And the halloween headerhunter boss dlc will be out on Tuesday!…

  8. Ha! I will have to get back into BL2 at some stage.

    I will do a review of classes soon but I would say that you want a Sorcerer with their daedric summoning. Having said that Elder Scrolls classes are just a starting point and anyone can pretty much do anything.

  9. um… which of these factions is most like a mechromancer?

  10. Very helpful 🙂

  11. It’s official, Gamearena have closed our TeamSpeak server. I know this because they sent me this helpful please-come-back-again email:

    Hello Tofu,

    Your Game Server Rental subscription for TeamSpeak has ended.

    Thanks for your support of Australia’s premier Game Server Rental service, and we hope to see onboard again in the future!

    Kind regards,
    The Game…

  12. Bizarre!

  13. I’m amused that GameArena (Telstra) are getting out of the voice business!

  14. No biggie. I just kinda look like this now…

  15. I have not gotten wood, but I do have holidays! What is everyone up too?
