The 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.


1)  Wood 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.

2)   +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.

3)   +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.

4)  Wood 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).
