Now that we know the 3 factions: Daggerfall Covenant, Ebonheart Pact, and Aldmeri Dominion, and we've had a chance to learn about each faction, and their playable races, which faction will you play for?
Just a quick recap, or for those who don't know yet:
Races: Bretons, Orcs, Redguard
Provinces: High Rock, and Hammerfell
Races: Dunmer (Dark Elves), Nords, Argonians
Provinces: Morrowind, Skyrim, and Black Marsh
Races: Altmeri (High Elves), Bosmer (Wood Elves), and Khajiit
Provinces: Elsweyr, Valenwood, and The Summerset Isles
Personally, I see certain advantages and disadvantages to each faction already. Though Zenimax said they're moving away from the Holy Trinity (Tank/Healer/Damage), I think some factions will be better suited than others at certain roles.
The most well-rounded faction seems to be the Ebonheart Pact, because they have Nords to Tank, Dark Elves for casting and/or stealth, and Argonians for stealth as well. The other two factions seem to be lacking in certain areas.
For example, the Daggerfall Covenant has a couple of great races for Tanks, (Orcs & Redgaurd), and they have a great race for casters (Bretons), but are certainly somewhat lacking in the Rogue department. The Aldmeri Dominion, on the other hand, has probably the best Caster (High Elf), and possibly the best Rogue (Wood Elves) (certainly the best archers), but is lacking in the Tank department, since the Khajiit seems to be their best option for a Tank.
What do you think?
Personally, I plan on joining the Aldmeri Dominion, for various reasons. I like to play Mage/Rogue classes, so having both the High Elf and Wood Elf is a big plus for me. Also just like Elves in general. Also, I like the forresty, green terrain, that sounds like it will be prevelant in these territories. Particularly looking forward to seeing what's on the Summerset Isles, and what the great tree-cities in Valenwood look like. But that's just me...
Who's side are you on?
