Racial Passives and Best Race for Each Role

Racial Passives and Best Race for Each Role

 

This video is a complete guide to racial passives in the Elder Scrolls Online Wrathstone patch. In addition, the video covers what races are best for each role in the game, as that is more important when deciding what race you want to play than your class choice. The goal of this is to help you make the most informed decision when you are creating your characters in ESO!

DO NOTE: The imperial is only accessible from getting the Imperial upgrade through the crown store for your account.
