Okay, guys, close your eyes and imagine this for a second. It will be hard to read the elder scroll I'm about to reveal with your eyes closed, yes, but it's not all bad. At least it will prevent your brain from melting after you realize you're looking at the future emperor of Tamriel until this is patched. 
 
Haven't you ever seen Indiana Jones?

Anyways...
 
First things first. I'll cut right to the OP aspect of this build. Let me learn you on a little thing called Hemidactylus frenatus, better known to TES lore enthusiasts as the master race of Tamriel - yes, the Argonian.

Now that I have your ears (and hopefully not your eyes), I'll learn you about what's going to make Hemidactylus frenatus the most efficient killing machine Tamriel has ever seen since I massacred Whiterun in Skyrim 2 hours ago.
 
Ladies and gentleman....
 
I give you...
 
The most blatantly over-powered buff any MMO has ever seen.
 
+50% swim speed

+50% swim speed
 
+50% swim speed

 

I don't even need to plan out any additional skills this is so OP. I mean think about it. See that puddle on the battlefield, nords? May as well go home because +50% fucking swim speed.

 

Oh, what's that? Your level 50 night blade khajiit can one-hit KO me with a backstab? Try again, because...

 

+50%. Fucking. Swim. Speed.

 

Fuck, I'm almost sorry because this just isn't fair.

Oh, I get it now. You always knew these reptile facts because you always wanted to play as an argonian. Cheer up, Brodo Swimmins. Just find a healer, call him "Sam", and I'm sure that you'll find that the dream of being an anthropomorphic lizard is still worth holding on to.

I will take your pre-emptive surrender into consideration. I will offer all inferior builds a lifetime of hard labor for the glory of the argonian master race, as opposed to a slow and painful death death by swim.

 

I am a merciful god Emperor.

The real question is this - can slaughterfish out-swim argonians?

I am eagerly awaiting this video, comrade.

You watch your mouth, Raptor Norris allows you to live among the Argonian people.

 

FYI, the 50% swim speed in pvp is actually really nice, pop a potion right before fish waters and most people cannot catch you.

Nope, tested it a few times. Also the main body of water in Cyrodiil is infested with slaughterfish so the only real place to use this bonus in rvr are small ponds here and there, lol. Its funny how lizards irl can grow back their tails and they do not have any healing regen bonus in game. To me that screams healing regen bonus. I know they get a bonus to behing healed but wtf, 50% swim speed is damn near useless.

Actually in rvr it might give an argonian enough speed to cross a slaughterfish infested body of water whereas the other races would either die trying to swim after him or just stop chasing all together. Either way I'm playing Argonian :)

Don't know what kind of tests you did, but I swam through slaughterfish pools just fine, pop a pot before you go into the waters, you will survive.

Can't out swim slaughter fish I mean. The speed bonus will come in handy but it's very situational.

Well, ain't no body can stand in the doomfishy waters. 

 

Which, I hope changed because water fighting is a very interesting mechanic. They need to make it so Argonians are immune to the slaughter fish and the world will be solved.
