Guide: Skyrim Complete Race Breakdown

There are ten races found within Skyrim, each of them with their own set of unique stats. Whether you want to be a massive, rage-driven Orc or an underwater-breathing Argonian, you'll find advantages and disadvantages to both.

Problem is, Skyrim doesn't necessarily tell you which class is greater at which skill. I have broken this down in the guide below. Which class are you playing as?

The starting point for each stat is going to be 15. A stat point of 20 is considered "favored", with a 25 being the "primary skill".

While no race will hinder you from creating the ultimate hero you've always dreamed of being, selecting the right class for your style of play will make it much easier.
