There are thirteen possible birthsigns to choose from in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. That is a lot for anybody to take in. After that, you have the rest of the convoluted character creation that follows and the skill specializations that you”ll need to start investing in after that.
However, the birthsign you choose could become entirely moot if you don”t select a conducive race or character traits, and specializing in the wrong skills can throw off your entire build even more. So if you are having trouble discerning which birthsign best suits the playstyle you”re aiming for, scroll through this comprehensive guide to make light work of a tough decision.

The Apprentice is a magical sign, with those born under it showing an innate aptitude for the arcane arts. However, they are also extremely susceptible to magical attacks. Altmer born under this sign should be especially cautious.
However, Altmer can make extraordinary use of this star sign, so if you”re looking for a glass cannon-style mage build, then this is the sign for you. Coupling the Altmer race and Apprentice star sign characteristics with the Mantle of Woe robes and beefing out your intelligence to 100 would potentially bolster your magicka reserves up to 900.
As the namesake suggests, those born under the Atronach have vast magicka reserves, but they are unable to regenerate that reserve through natural ability. That doesn”t make this sign worthless by any means. If you are willing to devote weapon or armor enchantments to the Absorb Magicka Enchantment, you can compensate for the shortcoming. Another way to negate the stunted regenerative effects would be to become a proficient alchemist and brew a large store of Restore Magicka potions.
Those with the Atronach sign naturally utilize the Spell Absorption ability, which gives them a chance to transform the energy from a magical attack into a portion of regenerated magicka. Those with steadfast willpower will benefit the most from this natural talent, so if you”re drawn to this sign”s untapped potential, be sure you”re allotting plenty of points to the Willpower attribute.
Those born under the Lady star sign have big personalities — quite literally. Their “Lady”s Favor” ability contributes 25 to the Personality attribute, and “Lady”s Grace” grants a bonus of 25 Endurance. The personality attribute is the key perk of this sign, bolstering your disposition and causing others to hold you in higher regard.
Anyone who enjoys using a silver tongue to make it through sticky situations will want to utilize this sign. A strong personality helps with bending others to your will through taunts, intimidation, or others” genuine admiration for your shining charisma. Given these finely tuned social skills, people are more likely to share sensitive information or help you out along your travels.
With that in mind, you will definitely want to enhance your personality as much as possible. That means making sure to utilize the Illusion, Mercantile, and Speechcraft skills as often as possible to maximize the multiplier during level-up. These are pretty broad skills that pair nicely with virtually any build. However, the Lady”s way with words and aptitude for Illusion magic predispose these individuals to excel in the Healer, Bard, or Agent classes.
All those born under the sign of the Lord are more invigorated than other signs, able to restore their own health with the “Blood of The North” spell. This spell regenerates 2 points of health for 30 seconds. However lordly, these individuals are not impervious and take massive damage from fire-based assaults.
Willpower bolsters the intensity of the “Blood of The North” spell. In turn, Willpower is strengthened through the use of Alteration, Destruction, Restoration, and Mysticism magic. This all suggests those under the Lord”s sign should focus on tapping into their inclination for the arcane arts and could prove to be apt Sorcerers, or possibly Battlemages.

Those individuals whose birthdates fall under the Lover”s sign are more agile and stunning than others. Their ability “Mooncalf” fortifies their agility by 25 points while their unique spell, “Lover”s Kiss,” paralyzes targets for a full minute. However, the spell also does a hefty number on the caster”s fatigue, making them less poised in battle.
Imperials can use the “Star of The West” spell to negate the fatigue drain from “Lover”s Kiss” temporarily. The Lover”s fortified agility makes them a prime candidate for thievery and marksmanship. By practicing their block, light armor, sneak, and marksman skills, they can bolster their agility with a critical multiplier for each level-up. This, in turn, makes them all the more proficient as a thief. Of course, they can weasel their way out of a pinch by planting an immobilizing lover”s kiss on any target that catches them out. If an individual under the Lover”s sign prefers a more honest lifestyle, they may find success as a Monk instead.
The Mage is a simple star sign, with those born under it receiving a 0.5 multiplier to their overall magicka. Naturally, this sign is most well predisposed to specialize in the mage class. Though some may consider the Apprentice or Atronach to be stronger in the arcane arts, the Mage is an easy choice for beginners who may not want to worry about the debuffs those birthsigns suffer.
