About this Skyrim Race
Orcs are usually known in RPGs for their warrior skills. In Skyrim this is no different: Orc are fierce warriors which stop at nothing – if you improve the correct skills. This race starts with both bonusses to the One-handed skill and the Two Handed skill so it’s up to you which weapon you’re going to use.
In the sense of Armor you have an advantage to Smithing. Use it wisely to create a character which can create its own heavy armor and you’ll be all set to rampaging through dungeons and slaying dragons.
Weakness of the Orcs
The weakness of this character is the lack of magic. While Orcs can cast magic it doesn’t recharge quite as fast so don’t rely on your Restoration skill to replenish your Orc’s health – or at least, not initially. You’ll also have to be careful with NPCs who come after you with ranged attacks: mages and archers. Since Orcs aren’t the fastest of the Skyrim Races you’ll be taking a few hits here and there. Just make sure you get in close fast and finish the job.
