Breton 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.

Breton Racial Passives

Bretons have a heavy focus on Magicka, and thus make very good Magicka-based DPS or Healers. The cost reduction of Magicka abilities, in combination with the Magicka Recovery gives them excellent sustain, allowing them to DPS or Heal longer before needing to use a Potion or Heavy Attack to regain Magicka. The Spell Resistance is also nice to have, as it helps keep them alive longer, particularly in PvP. If you know you want to play a Magicka Build, this Race is a fantastic choice.

Best Builds for Breton

  • Magicka DPS: Excellent (Destruction Staff)
  • Stamina DPS: Not Good (Two-Handed Weapon, Dual Weapons, Bow)
  • Healer: Good (Restoration Staff)

      Where do you distribute your attribute points for a Breton dual wield sorcerer? I know what I want for skills, but I don’t know where these attribute points need to go?

        He's the best for stam melee... and that's only for stam recovery.
        For damage and sustain I'd use an orc if you plan on weaving primarily heavy attacks between skills (you'll never run out of stamina I promise).

        Now what about ranged?! If you're using a bow a redguard does precisely d1ck for you. For damage (crits) go cat. For PASSIVE stamina regen there is nothing better than wood elf i think.
