ESO Playable Races:

ESO Races and FactionsBefore venturing into Tamriel you will need to make many important choices. At the top of the list is character choice, which of the 10 unique Elder Scrolls Online Races you will choose? Each of the ESO races has their own special passive abilities, unique appearance, personality, etc. Every race receives the same number of possible racial passives, the first of which is given to every new character for free. This first ability is a % bonus to experience gained while leveling a specific weapon or armor skill line. This ability is in-line with the lore and background of the race and it’s cultural preferences, however should not be a big factor in determining the “best” race for you. Everyone will end up with 50 in their weapon and armor skills in the long run, so while this is a useful benefit to have while leveling, these first-tier passives offer no big long-run benefits. Choose a race below for skills and tips on selection of class & race to create your builds.
