    Dunmer Sorcerer

    Love the Dunmer (left over from Morrowind). Couldn’t go for the Pact though, it was just too much trying to ally with Argonians and Nords.
    Could actually go with Covenant, their goals are more in line with the Dominion’s, but I dislike their races (the Dominion’s races are my 2-4th favorite, after Dunmer) and would rather see an elf on the throne than a human.
    Ergo – the Dominion.

    ^^ This wins.  Not to mention that hot elves are everyone – The queen, whoever the elf is in the trailers, all over Tolkien and everywhere you look. Who wouldn’t want one on the throne?

    Because it’s the most powerful and all the guilds I want to join are Aldmeri. Personally, Aldmeri is the most evil of the factions, but my characters are always evil anyway.

    I was set on DC Breton at first. But I’ve tried all factions in the BETA and found that I prefer this faction best. Not only the story but the landscape and everything. And Kate as Queen <3 Now I’m probably rolling as an Aldmer and will fight for the Dominion. Mer over men.

    I select AD because I have always enjoyed playing Altmer and Bosmer. I might make a Dunmer and a Breton as well also playing for AD and naturally an Imperial as I got the Imperial box for the book.

    I joined AD because they are evil and want to conquer all of Tamriel, I love the elf races, and they have a beautiful starting area. FOR THE DOMINION!

    I’m not sure how many of you have had the opportunity to play through some of the Aldmeri Dominion questline… but the AD, and more importantly its Queen are not allied with the Thalmor. Much of the available chain involves saving the queen from attempts on her life and restoring faith in her leadership and departure from the will of the Thalmor. The goal is not domination, but rather a restoration of peace and balance to Tamriel that has been lost since the dragonfires went out. To say the AD are evil is unjust and simply untrue.

    I look forward to playing AD as I loved the starting zones and I’m working toward a spot in Entropy Rising :)

    Nailed it. Queen Aryenn seems to have the most noble goal imho. However, I still kinda wonder why they call it the Aldmeri DOMINION while Ayrenn definitely said that domination is not their goal. Seems like an unlucky choice of the word.

    You High Elves have beautiful women, and I will spare a few of you when this war is done. But you will not dominate anything, for you will fail in your quest for the Ruby Crown. I will rather hand it to the Daggers, as long as you end up forgotten.

    And I’m obviously not joining the Aldmeri Dominion, I’m going to hunt you down in the southeastern corners of Cyrodil.

    @Rytfield: Dominion is simply an area of sovereignty or control. A kingdom of sorts. Its only our connotation of the world that leads to the idea of burn and conquer ;)

    I played all the classes and all the factions during beta and my high elf sorcerer was the character I had the most fun on.

    so when I get in game i’ll make a that character again and take it as far as it goes.

    not planning on any other characters till after my sorcerer hits 50++.

    Pretty much only cause my friend wants to play AD. Which is fine with me, now that I can play my Breton or Imperial in any factions, that’s all that matters. Plus, our of all the beta tests I’ve played the AD starting area and Dungeon were the best. (not that the whole dungeon thing matters since you can do any of them I guess)

    Cuz it’s the best, duh!

    Seriously though, I plan on joining AD because I have always been partial towards elves. Their knowledge, strength and wisdom across worlds and genres has successfully pulled me in (See Lord of the Rings, Eragon, etc. etc.). While I may not like the Thalmor necessarily, I still love elves and all of the lore surrounding them.

    Because it is our duty to undo the folly of men (and because elves are awesome).

    It has the best reason for trying to capture the Ruby Throne and because I have always loved elves.
