Oblivion star signs. What is best for a Redguard?

Ok, I picked redguard, and now for my sign. Which star sign is best for Redguards?

Orc = strength/endurance with defensive skills buff,
Nord = same thing with a better innate skill and more offensive skills to start with
Lizard = speed (good for thief or bow), same with lion without the disease resistances

High elf for caster, dark elf can be caster too (int/will), the other elf-type is also speed/bow type.

Check a FAQ about classes. They give good suggestions.

NOOO! *slap* NUMBERS BAD!
NUMBERS BAD!

I would prefer worded descrptions

Nords and Orcs are heavies
High elves and bretons are magic(bretons are better in my opinion)
Kajiit and Bosmers are theives and bosmers are more archery
Argonians and Dark elves can do whatever pretty well Imperials are crap, but they dont have a specific thing
Redguards are the best in my opinion- like a light swordsman

I think that's all.

Argonians are thiefs/warriors. If male. Mages if female.

Bretons are good battlemages if male. Pure mages if female.

High Elfs are good pure mages.

Wood Elfs are archers. AND JUST ARCHERS.

Khajiit are thieves, with a slight leaning to combat for males.

Dark Elfs do it all, but nothing particularly well.

Imperials just suck. Don't use them.

Nords are warriors, with a defensive focus, due to Woad and Resist Frost.

Orcs. WARRIORS. ALWAYS. Female orcs have higher MP for more healing. Recommended!

Redguards are THE BEST warriors, if you intend to use both weapons styles.

Redguards make excellent warriors and if you run into a really tough enemy you can go super on them for 60 seconds a day.

Argonians are fucking awesome.

Bretons aren't Argonians.

High Elfs aren't Argonians.

Wood Elfs aren't Argonians.

Khajit aren't Argonians.

Dark Elfs aren't Argonians.

Imperials aren't Argonians.

Nords aren't Argonians.

Orcs aren't Argonians.

Redguards aren't Argonians.

The choice is clear, sir.

EDIT: Off-topic, but I was on Oblivion as I posted this. I killed someone in stealth with a bow who was stood right in front of some other guy, the guy didn't care, sat down and proceeded to eat. I snook up behind him to stab him in the back just as he says "must've been the wind". DEM SUM STRONG WINDS YO.

I hate YOU and every person LIKE you. Your ilk is the reason that the people who LIKE numbers so we can quantifiably plan things have to search through arcane wiki's in back alley's just to know what the actual difference between the white bald guy and the black dude classes in a game are.

I... Hope you STUB YOUR TOE REALLY HARD. Yeah. Oooh, or maybe that you itch at an awkward moment in the subway and can't scratch it because you'll look like a pervert.

Bear my curse for all time. Muahahahahaha.

My mother died in a freak toe stubbing accident...while scratching on the subway. You feel like a big man now?

Do I feel like a big man? Yeah I do.. yeah... I do... (cries) aww man, I'm sorry. I got... I got carried away. Listen, How 'bout a compromise, we'll put your easy to understand at a glance description on the main page but... can we get a little More Info link on each one so I can understand the inner-workings?

Uggh, and man, I shouldn't have had that bean burrito for lunch... hey wait a second...

It's not like I don't like understanding games deeply. I search wikis all the time...it's just...A NUMBER KILLED MY FATHER...AND ATE MY DOG...WHILE I WATCHED!

*boo hoo*

Khajiits - F*ck yeah, cat people! They're just awesome and should enslave the other races, while conquering the world.

Khajits=awesome assassins
Dark Brotherhood= Assassin's Guild = Best missions in the game
Thus Khajiit= Best choice

But to quote Yahtzee, "It's about the numbers. You want the item with the best numbers so you can use your numbers to decrees the enemy numbers until your numbers are the best in the land, and all the other guilds flock to regard your numbers with jealous awe."

But if you insist....
Altmer (a.k.a. High Elves)- Low defense, high spell craft
Argonian- immune to disease, 100% water breathing constant, balanced offense and defense
Bosmer (a.k.a. Wood Elves)- low defense, good at ranged weaponry
Breton- Casters, all right defense, option of physical offense
Dunmer (a.k.a. Dark Elves)- Good at everything, great at nothing
Imperial- FOR THE EMPERA, physical offense with high speech craft
Khajiit- Da sneaky kitties
Nord- My personal favorite, good physical offense, good defense, and a race spell that does 50 damage
Orc (a.k.a. Orsimer, Pariah Folk, or Corrupted Elves)- FOR DA HOARD, good physical offense, good defense, really not liked by any other races than Orcs
Redguard- Like an Imperial but with less emphasis on speech craft

I picked Redguard :D

but what is the best star sign? I think I'll do Steed for some reason. But maybe warrior is better

I couldn't tell you. I always play as a Nord in the first place, but it has been so long since I started a new character that I don't even remember what they all are any more.

All Redguard's must be born under the sign of the Steed because it raises your speed and makes you run faster.

.............What?

zombiejoe:

The Warrior just for badassness :D +Strength and +Endurance

If you're going for melee combat with a Redguard, The Warrior.

The Warrior. That's what Redguards are best at.

Super Toast:
The Warrior. That's what Redguards are best at.

Pointless!

He'll raise Strength and Endurance to max quickly with just natural non-grinding skill use!

I suggest The Lord, if you don't plan to take Restoration as a major skill. A very slight weakness for the best MP/HP healing ratio outside of the default healing.

Or The Thief. Extra Luck is always good, as is Speed (Heavy Armor slows you down a ton until high skill levels). And Agility helps you resist staggering.

Steed gives you the most overall if i remember

Onyx Oblivion:
Imperials just suck. Don't use them.

Imperials tend to make good rogues/manipulators.

Oh shit, here's me thinking with my Oblivion XP head on... Listen to Hypn- Applejack? Unless you plan on underlevelling or use a mod then Thief it.

Imperials tend to make good rogues/manipulators.

Manipulators aren't needed much...Speechcraft levels easy as hell, and illusion no longer has insane MP costs like Morrowind.

Other races do rogue so much better, too.
