New Player; New Character!

Right now, I'm fresh and ready to roll. I picked up a membership just so that the field is wide open for me. I absolutely appreciate immersion when I play any story rich game. I RP'd in most MMORPGs and have perused ESO's RP threads.

 

What I need is more of a general confirmation from people before I go riding off in the sunset. Racial significance, I've seen a bit of youtube videos recommending race / class combinations. I also have checked out the calculator on this site.

 

I like Altmer, Dunmer and Argonians. Never been a huge fan of the other races, aside from Breton in TES. I absolutely love the lore attached to Argonians and the Hist as well as their aesthetic. The two play styles I always bounce between were pure mages or nightblades.

 

Right now I'm wanting to know if I'm giving myself the stiff arm if I end up playing an Argonian Sorcerer or any other absurd combinations. Mainly when it comes to getting into end-game Veteran stuff. Also, am I going to feel handicapped as I'm pushing through the content from 1-50?

    It matters.

    But if you have not optimised your other stats, gear, skills and rotation, and learnt the boss mechanics, then you should work on them first. This could be a helpful resource for you.

    Argonian have good sustain and the 9% Max Health can also help by giving you a greater margin for error. In comparison, Altmer and Dunmer have percentage damage passives and larger max magicka bonus.

    Most people will opt for the latter, but you won't really notice the difference when doing solo (bar-vMA) and quest content, especially from 1-50.
