Poll above. Racial skills below.

 

Aldmeri Dominion 

Daggerfall Covenant

Ebonheart Pact

 

Altmer, Dunmer, and Orc all seem pretty good.

As much as I'd hate to admit it, those High Elves look like pretty powerful mages. 

My Nord would be weary of repeated Lightning splash, then encase, then wall of elements combos.

 

I also predict a situation where the Altmer with their magicka-concentrated strengths could theoretically bolt escape circles around large battles and effectively stun everyone for their allies.

For me Orcs seem really strong

Seems like a weird coincident that the least popular race would get the "best" racials. Are Zenimax attempting to lure more people to the Daggerfall Covenant, do you think? I'm not currently wearing a tinfoil hat, I promise.  :)

That would make sense. Orcs are usually the lowest by quite a bit in every popularity poll I've seen, and this game is going to depend on balance a lot. They seem to be quite clearly the best option for tanks.

 

Although the Dunmer race has rather mediocre appearing skills at face value, that fire resistance might be great with all of the Dragon Knights destined to be running around.

I chose khajiit because if you get a high crit % and fast attacking class you can put out HUGE extra damage per crit.

Some racials are better for 1 style than the other but I think when the bring the numbers at the same level that it is pretty good balanced.

 

They are strong but not op.

I am a little concerned that the racial bonuses are strong enough that it really pushes players to choose the race that fits their character template. Now in ESO that wasn't an issue, but in an MMO with 3 alliances, it might be. I mean, unless you just hate elves, if you are playing with mage character with a destruction staff, how do you not go with Altmer? etc etc. It really has the potential to pigeon-hole players who are afraid of being 'gimped' if they choose a race whose skills are less compatible with their character template.

 

I love the idea of racial bonuses that make the different races have different feels, but at the same time, these racial bonuses are so strong and (in many cases) so one dimensional, it could turn out to be very limiting. Do you really want an Aldmeri Dominion with (mostly) all Altmer mages and all Bosmer archers and all Khajit melee?

It definitely pushes players into a category. It's really hard because this will mean each alliance has more of a certain type of character, and whichever type is the strongest in group PVP means that that alliance will win the most battles.
