My Dunmer and even Altmer characters feels insecure arround him despite having the height slider to max.
Do you guys also feel the same and Should zos nerf this false god's height?

    Think of it this way. Sotha has divine powers and can replace parts of his body with bionics. How likely is it that he's naturally that tall? He was willing accept grey skin, unlike Almalexia and Vivec (right hand side notwithstanding). But he had to be the world's tallest Dunmer. Abnur Tharn had something to say about Mannimarco doing something like this.

    Sotha Sil does not believe himself a god, unlike Almalexia.

    His legs are probably mechanical, he does not have legs in his brief appearance as a corpse in TES: Morrowind.

    Yeah, definitely. I think the size of the incoming Molag Bal pet would be fitting. :)

    Overland difficulty scaling is desperately needed. 9 years. 6 paid expansions. 24 DLCs. 40 game changing updates including One Tamriel, an overhaul of the game including a permanent CP160 gear cap and ridiculous power creep thereafter. I'm sick and tired of hearing about Cadwell Silver & Gold as a "you think you do but you don't" - tier deflection to any criticism regarding the lack of overland difficulty in the game. I'm bored of dungeons, I'm bored of trials; make a personal difficulty slider for overland. It's not that hard.

    No! Being much shorter than him makes it easier to take a sneaky look under his robe to see if he actually wears an anklet just as depicted on his statue at Brass Fortress. For scientific reasons, of course.

    No! Of course not! Making him shorter would be blasphemous!
    Ok so its he who wear that Brass Anklet, killed so many poor Nereid for one.
    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    1. Even if his legs and feet were mechanical, he could still wear an anklet.
    2. He's barefoot. Just like the rest ol Almsivi. Or no, Almalexia is wearing shoes. How weird for a wanna-be god. It clearly shows that she's insane.

    You encounter Sotha Sil on Artaeum at the end of the quest line. Is the height difference the same there? If so, the CWC shrinkage argument fails.

    Aw, look at poor elves who need to be tall to feel sleek. Silly bald bottoms, you have this one's sympathies.

    Now, khajiit, he has a tail. And that is all that needs be said, yes?

    I think he is the same size there. The argument isn't invalid though, as he still has access to that machine to, well, resize people. Logically, it must also work the other way round and be capable of enlarging creatures, as you get your old size back when you leave CWC. So he probably just made himself taller.

    Btw, interestingly, there's a projection of him and Nerevar at the Elegiac Replication (or whatever that place was called):

    I think Indoril Nerevar was an average-sized Chimer, and Sil doesn't look much taller than him. So there you have his real height ;)

    The projection is insightful, but ZOS also made Nerevar wear ancient elf armor even though Ordinator armor assumably existed at the time, so I'm not bound to trust it.

    Also, he should carry Trueflame instead of that ordinary sword...

    Anyway, it shows that a depiction exists where Sil is not extremely tall. Weren't more projections of him in Kemel-Ze? By any chance together with something that could be used as a scale?
