Racial Skills ESO

Description

Racial Skills in the Elder Scrolls Online are unique passives for each one of the nine Races that exist in-game.

These passive skills can affect how well a character can perform a specific role. Some passives are better for Stamina roles while other are better to play as a Magicka based character.

To maximize the effectiveness of your character it will be wise to pick passives that help you follow your preferred gameplay. Which means that you should pick the right race for the right job.

It is possible to play every role with any of the nine races regardless of your racial skills but to achieve the absolute best for any given role, the correct passives are necessary.

The nine races of The Elder Scrolls Online are, Argonian, Breton, Dark Elf, High Elf, Imperial, Khajiit, Nord, Orc, Redguard, Wood Elf and these are their Racial Skills.
