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