Which one is the stronger one between the two? My opinion goes to the dwarven warrior.
But the best mages and sorcerers belong to the elves right?
Not really. Their mages use subtly different magic to circle mages, but it's not categorically 'better'. If anything, the elves have the best rogues, either dalish hunters or city elf street rats.
I thought the humans were the best rogue type fighters.
Depends on the game.
Origins: Humans= Jack of All Trades. Decent at all three classes
Elves= Boosts to Dex, Mag and Will I believe. Rogues and mages
Dwarve= Boosts to Str, Con and Will I believe. Warriors, possibly DW rogues
DA2: Doesn’t matter since Hawke is a human.
Inquisition: Race doesn’t have much of a gameplay impact, it actually has a more of a story impact with how people react to you but never the less:
Humans= Extra ability point, again jack of all trades
Elves= Ranged defence boost, useful again for mages and archers, but warriors too I guess
Dwarves= Magic defence boost, useful for both warriors and rogues, but pairs nicely with Templar or Champion
Qunari= Melee defence boost. Best for Warriors/DW rogues.
Overall in Inquisition race really doesn’t make much difference other than certain dialogue and romance choices.
In Origins there’s more of an impact on gameplay, but nothing that can’t be evened out through the right build
^The gameplay impact is barely noticeable in Origins too. The stat boosts are only one or two points.
Well the Qunari are far taller but that isnt necessarily a good thing and strength depends on who it is. if it was, say, Sten vs Oghren=Sten/Bull vs Oghren=Oghren/Sten vs Sigrun=Sigrun/Bull vs Sigrun=Bull. so really it all depends on who we're talking about, overall id give it to a dwarf tho, mainly because a Qunari's height would have him at a disadvantage IMO
^They aren't skinny tall though. They're tall and very muscular. Dwarves are muscular too but if the qunari have twice and much mass and are equally muscular, then they are stronger. I mean, that's just math.
There are other factors of course but in a straight up brawl between a qunari and a dwarf, with no weapons or armor, the qunari is gonna win 9 times out of 10.
I'm just gonna say this based off of physical abilities. Qunari have the height and the upper body strength whereas Dwarves are quite short and "stocky" they are usually depicted as either muscular or fat whereas Sten, the Arishok and the Iron Bull are all shown to be buff af. I'd think that, considering the Qunari we've seen, one Qunari vs one Dwarf would end in the Dwarf's sad demise.
Isn't Oghren stronger than Sten? How come Sighrun stronger than Sten? Or am I missing something? I think Oghren and Iron Bull should be equal right?
^i give the oghren fight to sten because sten is more disciplined. i think sigrun beats sten because of her speed and agility. oghren beats bull in my opinion because i thing with the berserker rage he can take more punishment(or at least just not care).
As for the height plus mass argument, it would stand to reason that the Qunari is slower. and im not talking hand to hand because it would be far too one-sided
