Decent reasons to don the scaly hide, says you? Lemme throw a handful at you, Irishman. If Looks Could Kill - And They Often Do The thing about playing an Argonian is that you look friggin' awesome! You're not one of those air-sucking landstriders that cast judgment and racial slurs while fighting one another over trivial bullcheese. You might have horns (with fancy rings on them!) or feathers, and should you choose to become a vampire? You'll get a pair of gnarly-sweet fangs to complete the look. Someone who hails from the Emerald Isle should be able to appreciate the a green color-scheme that Argonians offer (Orcs can also be green, but they don't get much greener than "dirty olive.") Racial Power - And Then Some Let me just blow your mind with something here... it's called "Histskin," and it's hands-down the best racial power. You recover health ten times a whole minute! It's absolutely perfect for those times that you lurk into the lair of some gnarly boss. You know you're about to lose health during this scuffle, so you activate that bad mama-jama and you're safer than a babe in arms. Water-Breathing - Kicking Ass Aquaman-Style And yes, there are times when even the Histskin won't cover you. We've all been in fights that graduate into brawls, that somehow evolve into full-on brouhahas! If the plops hits the fan, one option that's always on the table for Argonians is the water-breathing. Barely any of Skyrim's baddies are so intense and kill-crazy that they'll follow you into the water. So run for the waves, and hide in the deepest spot! You'll be safer than a babe in arms, Irishman! In addition, it's pretty handy to be a water-breathing alchemist. I'm always on the lookout for Silverside Perch to make one my most lethal poisons (combined with Red Mountain Flower and Skeever Tail,) and those little beauties don't exactly grow on land. Finally, if you fancy the dark art of zombie-raising, it's always a blast to kill and then ressurect a couple horkers, so that you may have your own personal unholy navy.
