ESOwiki_bosmer_crest.png "The Wood Elves, or Bosmer, are mischievous, curious and nimble. Because their homeland of Valenwood is often attacked by the Colovian Imperials, Wood Elves are experts at the art of defense. They are also gifted archers, perhaps the best in all of Tamriel. The capital of the Aldmeri Dominion, Elden Root, lies in the heart of their homeland. It has evolved into a center of political and cultural importance and is of vital strategic importance in the battle to control Tamriel. "

Bosmer (Wood Elf) Racial Skills

Bosmer (Wood Elf) Racial Skills in Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) are gained as the player increases his or her Character Level. Players will continue to gain Racial Passives until they reach level 50, which where they will cap out the Skill Line. Each Race has their own set of Skills that make them unique and better suited for certain roles and Builds. Be sure to study these when planning your character, as they can make the difference between a good player and a great player.

Wood Elf Racial Passives

Looking over the Passives you can see that Wood Elves are more inclined to be Stamina-based characters, and ones that incorporate some amount of Stealth into their gameplay. This means they will use some combination of martial weapons like Bows, Swords and Daggers.

Stealth is not particularly useful for PvE content outside of questing, but is useful in PvP. And though Max Stamina is good for Tanking, Stamina Recovery is not because Stamina Recovery ceases while Blocking, which Tanks do constantly. These bonuses place Wood Elves squarely into the Stamina DPS category, without much flexibility, if you’re looking to optimize.

Best Builds for Wood Elf

  • Magicka DPS: Not Good (Destruction Staff)
  • Stamina DPS: Good (Two-Handed Weapon, Dual Weapons, Bow)
  • Healer: Not Good (Restoration Staff)
  • Tank: Passable (One-Handed and Shield)
