Some fans have debated which of the Divines in Skyrim they favor most, as many deities are worthy of adoration. Games like Far Cry 5 and Outlast 2 occasionally explore religious themes, but usually in the context of terrifying cults.
While cults in The Elder Scrolls games exist, most players don’t think twice about including religious elements in their builds. The benefit of a game like Skyrim lies precisely in this. It makes it possible for individuals to have their own unique life experiences.
Fans of the epic fantasy RPG have been waiting patiently for a new installment for quite some time. Though it hasn’t been verified, there have been rumblings that Starfield may be delayed once more, which could extend the wait for The Elder Scrolls 6.
Meanwhile, players are eager to keep the 2011 release’s topic of conversation alive. Reddit user Cain013 recently polled his fellow Skyrim players on which Divine is their favorite. This topic has generated a lot of talks, and it’s becoming clear that people have various preferences.
Someone mentioned they’re more into the “f**k you vibe” of Stendarr, the God of Compassion, Mercy, and Justice. A few others have professed their admiration for Dibella, the Goddess of Beauty and Love, while user defa90 elaborated at length on their devotion to Talos, the Hero-god of Humanity.
However, it has been pointed out that Cain013’s submitted image is missing one of the Divines. An obvious omission is Talos’s absence. Out of the nine Divines featured in the Elder Scrolls series, Talos is a fan favorite.
Depending on which shrine or altar the player visits, they may bestow their favors upon the protagonist. Most players of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion will recognize the name Akatosh, the Dragon God of Time, as the most prominent of the Divines.
Players will naturally have preferences over which Divine they think is best, but it’s encouraging to hear that the fifth Elder Scrolls game is still generating discussion.
Evidence that there is still a dedicated community of fans who are happy to keep this 11-year-old RPG alive and well, at least until the next game comes out, can be found in the many threads dedicated to debating which of Skyrim’s cities is the worst or the best, or the overall game’s economy and how it stays afloat.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a video game that may be played on the personal computer (PC), PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Switch, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
