In the Elder Scrolls Online, there are 10 total playable races. Note that the Imperial race is only available as a special bonus for those who pre-order the Imperial version of the game. The Imperial race can choose any of the three existing allegiances and will start in the same starting areas as other players of those factions.
Races are generally bound to their
respective faction. However, those
who pre-ordered the digital edition or the digital imperial edition of the game
are able to choose any faction with any race that they prefer. Those picking up
the game through other sources do not get to pick their faction and instead
must stick to the default allegiance
for their race.
races belonging to each of the game’s three alliances are:
Dominion: Altmer, Bosmer and Khajiit.
Covenant: Breton, Orsimer and Redguard.
Pact: Argonian, Dunmer and Nord.
race has 4 passive abilities which give them unique flavor and abilities. Some
of these passives are shared between races. The first passive bonus for each
race is automatically available at level one without requiring a skill point to
be spent. It grants a 15% experience bonus when training a specific weapon or
armor skill line. The specific skill line each race earns a bonus towards is
in-line with the lore, background, and cultural preferences of each race. The
subsequent three passives in each racial tree each have three ranks, which
increase in power as you invest additional skill points into them. Not all
racial passives can be unlocked right away.
