Alright, the past few weeks I've been dealing with my friends asking me to make a custom Class Guide since I've run through Morrowind as a custom class four times without dying on any of them.

I'd like to know if those Morrowind players on GOG would be interested in such a guide? :)
I'm thinking quite seriously of reinstalling Morrowind, modding the hell out of it, and and faffing about amidst some overgrown mushrooms.
So yes, a guide like that would be useful, as I hate dealing with regret in RPGs when I find out that I've made some bad choices in character creation. It's pretty much what made me drop Morrowind last time.

Alright. :) I'll keep you in the loop
I wouldn't mind a guide, if it is easy to read.
I've always felt my characters could've been built better, but I didn't want to spend way too much time doing research.
I've got Morrowind installed and I'll probably start after finishing DXHR.

I can send you a small guide if you want :) Its just what I currently have
Well classes don't matter quite as much for Morrowind because the issue isn't so much which skills you choose (though that can save you some time, depending) because you can get all of your skills to 100 through hard work anyway. And there are no class restrictions on items. There are a couple of really subpar skills (like Unarmored) but even if you don't end up using one of your major chosen skills, you can still hunt down the master trainer and get a few levels out of it.

A good class guide also has to deal with what birthsign you choose, good training habits, and how to get the most out of your level-ups. Morrowind's not one of those games where you can just pick a class at the beginning and go on autopilot after that, you really have to develop your character throughout most of the game.

That said, I *ALWAYS* choose Endurance and Luck as my class's attribute bonuses, regardless of what type of character I'm playing. Always. Though I consider myself a grizzled Morrowind veteran, I'd still like to see it. Perhaps I'll see something I hadn't considered before!

You make wise points. But mine is purely for the Custom Class, not for the use of pre-generated classes. Would you care to see the basics?

I would be interested in such a document please :)
race = Breton.

minor skills = magic (the Breton's natural magical abilities will compensate for the low growth rate)

major skills = long sword + meduim armor / anything else you want that is a pain in the ass to train up at low levels (like lockpick, block, and barter).

now go out as soon as you get in game and get yourself a full set of chitin armor (I remember it being med ... make sure you get the shield too) and piss off one of those ugly dog things so it starts attacking you, but make sure your close to a town gate or something. then stand there and let the dog hit you while you constantly cast heal on yourself; your med armor, block, and magic levels will skyrocket but if you run out of magic and get close to dieing you can run in town.

Chitin is Light armor x.x

Please leave this guide making to me :) It is my topic ya know lol.
Meh, I always end up becoming God of Everything in Morrowind somehow. That and the fact that once you become the Nevarine and get the werewolf ring and all the other cool trinkets you're pretty much unstoppable :D.
I've been planing for quite some time to revisit Morrowind. Currently crazy about Deus Ex: HR, didn't even finish it and I'm thinking about alternate playthroughs but after that I think some Morrowind is in order.
So yeah, I'd love a good guide, it's been many many years since I played it.

I play the vanilla version so I don't get any cool trinkets like the ring. :( I didn't even become a vampire.

But to clarify for all. This guide is to help you START out with a Custom class, not to play the game as a custom.

As I say "Play what you know"
Sure, go wild. But if you skip on alchemy, I'm gonna burn down your guide harder than the sengoku jidai did Japan. :)
I expect the final version on my desk at the end of business day tomorrow!
