Dragonborn Racism: Ranking the Races in Skyrim

10. Dark Elf 1 of 11

November 14, 2011 - The world of Skyrim is an amazing place that's full of dangerous enemies and tough choices. The toughest choice for any player however, is probably the one made at the very beginning of the game. Before you can do anything else in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you are forced to choose your race and the look of your character. If you need some help choosing your class, read this list so that you can make the best character possible!

In absolute last place is the Dark Elf. Sure you can light yourself on fire and are resistant to fire, but there are better bonuses for magic users elsewhere. On top of that, Dark Elves are fairly ugly.


Ancestor’s Wrath - For 60 seconds, opponents that get too close take 8 points per second of fire damage

Resist Fire - Your Dunmer blood gives you 50% resistance to fire
