    It's still not a race as much as it is an affliction. Just like how vampires are not a race, nor are meridian purified, or werewolves.

    What would be the benefit of playing as a mindless zombie? The poll options suggest that playable zombies would get some kind of bonus to a "weaponless"/"hand-to-hand" skill, unless the term "unarmed" in the first poll option means "armorless" like it does in previous TES games.

    There's an existing thread here which suggests adding a zombie skill line in the World category, which might be a better implementation than adding it as an entire race. It might be worth looking through that thread for inspiration for this one, though.

    My wishlist for ESO
    I.Skills:
    >>weapons: Polearms, Unarmed, Crossbow

    >>Sorc's Twilight - perched animation

    >>a skill line - a guild having this - to enable us to increase % gold gain for donating Ornate gear (another gold sink in order to gain more pennies - but over time it would pay off)

    II.Overland Mechanics
    >>tree climing in Grahtwood / Malabal Tor / Greenshade, etc. (with tall trees)

    >>rock climbing in Glenumbra / Rivenspire / Stonefalls, etc. (with tall peaks)

    >>new skill lines - Adventure (enable climbing, increase flora and fauna harvesting chances)

    III.CP 2.0
    >>Craft Tree development

    III.Replayable content in overland
    >>pocket rifts to Oblivion - eg. to Vaermina's in Stormhaven, Boethiah's in Deshaan, Hircine's in the Rift OR in Bankgorai, etc. to get Daedric Sets relevant to the Prince, something like Oblivion rifts in Blackwood / the Deadlands

    IV.Geography
    >>Pyandonea - we had some quests WITH Maormer (Summerset, High Isle) - maybe we could meet them there? Poke poke, nudge nudge, wink wink, eh ZOS?

    V.Other
    (the ideas are also inspired by other Forum Users' posts)
    >>pet battles! We collect SO MANY pets, and yet there are just a cosmetic. What a HUGE potential lies within those tiny beats!

    >>ASOC - a new server in Asia and Oceania. If people have a bad ping there, it would be great if they had a server reaching their places more easily. And hey, it would make THREE servers, not two.

    >>possibility to dye barding

    >>display the dialogue options so that we can see which answer the NPC is reacting to

    >>a way to make Overland more challenging - for those who want

    Everything is a race nowadays. In Skyrim, even old people are a race:

    Seems that if any race would be added, it would be Maomer. They are already in the game, and therefore would be easiest to add as a playable race. They also wouldn't have to make any changes to armor, weapons, etc... as far as clipping and such. Unlike other races where size or shape would force them to have to alter the gear design to fit them.

    I am pretty much a mindless zombie as I run my toons through daily crafting writs. The world would implode if I ran mindless zombies through my mindless dailies...

    The one place where zombies would make sense for me is Cyrodiil. All deer and torchbugs that have been "escorted to greener pastures" for no good reason could come back as some sort of vengeful overpowered mutant deer race with torchbug combat pets or something. Hungry for brains they just want to break keeps and bridges and kill guards and players all night long. The torchbugs could fly away with the hammer, if nobody picks it up fast enough, and drop it in a random keep. I mean, someone already ate our children, broke our horses' legs and stole our toilets. I bet it was them, preparing for war.

    it really hasn't.
    sorcerer also has daedric magic, it's not nonsensical to have a class focus completely on daedric magic related to one prince and their realm.

    zombies aren't a race, anyone could be turned into a zombie.

    What exactly wasn’t clear?

    Just read the question and silly responses. It’s clearly not mean to be serious. This community is just over serious about everything on the forums.
