Race Choice Importance

Hey all,

Just wondering if I made a mistake when I created my characters oh so long ago... I currently have a VR3 Imperial NB, VR3 Imperial Templar, and a VR2 Breton Sorc. I'm thinking about finishing off my NB, or Templar, and making them magicka based heals / DPS.

Did I gimp myself potentially based on not choosing one of the magicka based races/passives? How much will I be losing out on DPS/Healing wise on my Templar/NB in the end?

Any help is appreciated.

    I use sub optimal races and have no problems. But it's definitely an individual choice. In game race changes are coming. Confirmed on eso live a few weeks ago.

    Unless you are in a competitive PvE guild hunting for world firsts and beating everyone's time at trials, i think the race will not prevent you from enjoying the game. It does make a difference, but your performance will be 2 parts race, 98 parts the player behind the keyboard anyway.

    My magicka DK is an orc btw *cough* :)

    big difference for me, DK dunmer magicka, redguard stamplar, bosmer NB, imperial anything

    Imperial is one of those races that lets you switch between magicka and stamina without too much penalty.

    I have every character level 50, both a magicka and stamina version.

    The Breton sorcerer will be good fun to heal with after the changes to sorc heals in Thieves Guild!
    Despite the fact that race/class combinations can make a significant difference in certain roles you can get anything to work at least moderately well.

    I've never thought about which race is the best or which isnt.I just go with whatever I like.Never regretted it yet.
    Having said that,there was one I would have changed his rave,and that eas my first character that I made. I hated the way he looked,so had to keep him hidden under a helmet.He id the one who got me all my dyes too.I eventually deleted him as I didnt play him anymore.
