The best race in Skyrim is the Nord. Their home-land and stronghold is located far to the north, on the border of Skyrim’s tundra.
The Nords have a natural resistance to diseases that lower Maximum Health (but it does not protect against disease). They also have an increase in Frost Resistance, something that will come in handy as you explore this truly frigid province! They also boast a high breath capacity, which again may be useful for venturing out into Skyrim’s snowy wilderness; they are naturally gifted with Warrior skills and start off with some very powerful weapons; they inflict more damage with melee attacks than any other race; and thanks to their ability called “Battle Cry,” Nords deal greater damage at close range.
Nords are the most naturally talented warriors in all of Tamriel; an incredible bonus for this already impressive race. It’s even rumored that they are immune to the effects of frost magic. If you’re looking for a race that can handle just about anything Skyrim might throw at it, Nord is the way to go.
