Wood Elf Sniper Thief Version 0.1
This guide is designed to let
people know of how great a wood elf is at thievery compared to
the (in my opinion) highly over-rated Khajiit. This is my
opinion and if you read this guide and still think that a
Khajiit is better then go play it.
1. Reasons I think a Wood Elf
can be a lot better than a Khajiit.
Elves get a +10 bonus to sneak and a Khajiit only gets +5. You
could say that this is balanced out by the Khajiits bonus to
Security but if you ask me, Sneak can be much more important
than Security because with a level 50 Security there is no
lock that wont open with the Secret Master picks. Probing
isnít much of a problem either.
+15 bonus to Marksman. Even though a Khajiit gets a +5
bonus to Short Blade, +15 is a lot better with a weapon and
the +15 a Khajiit gets to Acrobatics definitely isnít worth it
because Acrobatics is the easiest skill to increase and
Marksmanship is a lot harder to increase without a trainer.
+10 bonus to light armor. Khajiits only get a +5 here.
Yes again there is the +15 Acrobatics they get, but like I
said, Acrobatics is the easiest skill to increase on your own,
and Wood Elves also get a +5 bonus to Athletics which takes a
lot longer to increase on your own.
elves get a 5 bonus to Alchemy which is much better than a
bonus to hand-to-hand for a thief. Yes I think alchemy is
important to a thief because it is used to make important
potions (especially levitate).
IMPORTANTLY: KHAJIITS LOOK STUPID.
