A different person in a different world. These words still ring true when it comes to Skyrim. The character you create can be a fearless warrior, a cunning mage, or a conniving thief. The choice is yours. But which character best suits your tastes? What kind of class should you pursue and which perks are the best for YOU?

Skryim is unique to the Elder Scrolls series in the sense that you don’t really
pick a set “class” at the beginning of the game. Rather, you can choose from
all the different skills available to each class as you level up and earn
experience points in the game. This way you can build the character that YOU
want. You can have a thief that is extremely capable in the skills of heavy
armor that also is a badass at healing spells. This sense of freedom is
extraordinary, but it can also be daunting. Hopefully this guide will help out
those that are left scratching their heads.

When you level up, go to your Skills menu. This will cause your character to
look upward into the constellations to see all the various perks that can be
purchased and what category they fall under. The perks are separated by three
different colors and images.

Blue = Mage
Green = Thief
Red = Warrior

Each category has five trees of perks, and then one perk that falls in between
two different categories, which would benefit someone playing either class.

==========
A. WARRIOR
==========
Recommended Races: Argonian, Imperial, Khajiit, Nord, Orc, Redguard
Recommended Questlines: The Companions, The Dark Brotherhood, Civil War,
Daedric Quests, Main Quest

TIPS: If you want to play as a Warrior Class, you’ll have a couple of decisions
to make. For one, the Warrior class is based on defensive ability with armor,
as well as melee attacks with weapons. They are essentially tanks in the Elder
Scrolls, if you level them up only focusing on the Warrior skilltree, mind you.

Because the Warrior relies heavily on armor to succeed, you need to be aware of
the two armor types. There is Heavy Armor, which slows you down and makes you
unable to jump as high as normal, but it has quite the defensive bonus. Then
there is Light Armor, which allows more agility, but less defense.

The second decision Warriors will need to make is whether or not they will be
using dual-wielded weapons, or single-handed weapons in battle. Dual-wielding
lends itself to blending classes, as your character could have a sword in one
hand and a spell in the other. However, it can also be very beneficial to
Warriors. They could have a shield in one hand and a weapon in the other,
allowing them to block while also delivering hellish blows to opponents.

The Red Guard is the class most geared towards Warriors.

To Top

=======
B. MAGE
=======
Recommended Races: Breton, Dark Elf, High Elf, Imperial, Wood Elf
Recommended Questlines: The College of Winterhold, The Dark Brotherhood,
Daedric Quests, Main Quest, The Companions

TIPS: Mages have a large variety of spells available to them, ranging from
spells that have healing properties to ones that cause absolute and total
destruction. Mages can benefit greatly from using dual-wielding, as one hand
can be casting a Destruction Spell while the other hand is constantly healing
the user.

This common strategy, of course, requires an insane amount of magicka in order
to pull off properly. This is why you need to choose carefully in regards to
what race you pick at the beginning of the game so you wind up with someone
that has a lot of Magicka.

The High Elf is the class most geared towards Mages.

To Top

========
C. THIEF
========
Recommended Races: Argonian, Dark Elf, Khajiit, Wood Elf
Recommended Questlines: The Thieves’ Guild, The Dark Brotherhood, Daedric
Quests, Main Quest

TIPS: Thieves are probably one of the more harder classes to play effectively
as many quests in the game don’t even give you the opportunity to be stealthy
and sneak up on your enemies. However, the Thief class has some of the best
Perks available.

The Khajiit is the class most geared towards thieves.

To Top

==============
D. COMBINATION
==============
Recommended Races: All
Recommended Questlines: All

TIPS: Skyrim is made for just this. Instead of shoehorning players into a
specific class, Skyrim leaves the option open for players to explore just what
type of character they are, and level up and spend experience points to take
advantage of their strengths and retard their weaknesses.

However, Bethesda also left the option open to play a strictly Warrior, Mage,
or Thief class. However you want to play is up to you!

One Response to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Character Creation [Guide]

  1. This is a really sweet guide and all but a good way to level up for thieves is to try and sneak up on immortal NPC’s like Ralof/Hadavar and If your really smart you should creep up on an enemy and run against a wall close to the back of the enemy and it will keep on running if you take your finger off the button. You could go out to a party and be back with lv.100. This is called autorunning!!
