Special abilitiesEdit


Nords have great attributes and skill bonuses for a pure close-quarters fighter. Nords are a great race for beginner players.


Nords are very well-suited for the Crusader class due to their natural skill in Blade, Blunt, Heavy Armor and Restoration. Their lack of a high Willpower can easily be overcome by choosing the Lady birthsign, which will also boost their already high Endurance at the same time.


Playing as a Knight as Nord is a possibility, but can prove quite challenging in earlier stages of your playthrough, due to a low Speechcraft and Illusion skills, a low Personality attribute and a smaller magicka pool.


This once a day power goes a long way in helping to fight off bosses.


Woad is not nearly as useful as Adrenaline Rush or Berserk for killing bosses.

Possible BirthsignsEdit

The WarriorEdit

Use this birthsign and choose Strength and Endurance as the main attributes in a custom class to start the game with tons of health and fatigue.

The LadyEdit

Concerned with Willpower, choose the Lady. This grants a Nord character with boosts to magicka and health.
