Oblivion:Dunmer

Ilustração de um típico homem Dunmer.

Os Dunmer, também conhecidos como Elfos Negros, são os elfos de pele cinza, com olhos tipicamente vermelhos, que habitam Brisavinda.[nb 1] “Negro” é comumente entendido como “de pele escura”, “sombrio”, “desfavorecido pelo destino” e assim por diante. Os Dunmer e sua identidade nacional, entretanto, abraçam estas diversas conotações com entusiasmo. No Império, “Elfo Negro” é o uso comum, porém entre seus irmãos Aldmeri, são chamados de Dunmer. Sua combinação de poderosa inteligência e físicos ágeis e fortes produzem guerreiros e feiticeiros superiores. No campo de batalha, os Dunmer se destacam por sua habilidade em balancear seu bom uso com espadas, arcos e magias de destruição. Os Dunmer vivem de duas a três vezes vidas humanas; um Dunmer de 200 anos é velho, e um de 300 anos é muito, muito velho. Em caráter, são sombrios, distantes e reservados, assim como desconfiados e desdenhosos de outras raças.

Dunmer são desconfiados e tratados com desconfiança por outras raças. São frequentemente vistos como orgulhosos, fiéis ao clã e cruéis do ponto de vista estrangeiro, mas valorizam enormemente lealdade e família. Jovens mulheres Dunmer têm reputações promíscuas em alguns círculos. Apesar de suas poderosas habilidades e pontos fortes, a natureza vingativa dos Dunmer, seus antigos conflitos, traições e reputações manchadas os impedem de ganhar mais influência. Os nascidos na terra natal de Brisavinda are são conhecidos por serem bem menos amigáveis se comparados aos nascidos sob a tradição Imperial.

In-Game Description

Also known as "Dunmer" in their homeland of Morrowind, the Dark Elves are noted for their skilled and balanced integration of the sword, the bow and destruction magic. They are resistant to fire and can summon an ancestral ghost for aid.

Gameplay

The Dunmer are well-balanced characters. They can become any of the three main archetypes with ease. With good Destruction bonuses and combat bonuses, they can make perfect middle-of-the-line fighters with just enough magic to get the job done. Also, with their 75% Resist Fire, they can be very useful in Oblivion, where Daedra, one of the most prominent enemies, are encountered. The same goes for planned vampires, as a Dunmer's 75% fire resistance cancels out even the largest Weakness to Fire that full vampires have.

Enemy Dunmer will most frequently be encountered as Bandit Bowmen or as Bandit Ringleaders. These Dunmer tend to be equipped with light armor and archery equipment (or a blunt weapon in the case of Ringleaders). Among the vampires, the Assassins, Battlemages, Nightblades and Pilgrims are Dunmer, including Assassin Vampire Matriarchs and Patriarchs.

The Ancestor Guardian ability is a useful combination with The Atronach birthsign. If your magicka is low, summon it and attack it enough for it to become hostile towards you. Let its frost spells restore your magicka.
