Classes are occupations, vocations, or jobs fulfilled by player characters and NPCs in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. After being introduced, and brought ashore, The Hero, also known as the Nerevarine, is asked by Socucius Ergalla to choose a class, or create a custom one.

DescriptionEdit

Morrowind hosts 21 set classes for players to choose from, each with its own skill set, governing attributes, and abilities. Classes specializing in stealth include Acrobat, Agent, and Thief. Magic-using classes include Mage, Sorcerer, and Witchhunter. Fighter classes include Knight, Barbarian, and Warrior. Some classes cross the traditional styles of gameplay, sampling skills from each of the three archetypes. The Nightblade class, which uses swords, magic, and armor, illustrates this cross-class genre of character class. If none of these options suit a player, they may create their own, custom made class.

AcrobatEdit

Acrobat

Acrobat is a polite euphemism for agile burglars and second-story men. These thieves avoid detection by stealth, and rely on mobility and cunning to avoid capture.
