Dunmer (Dark Elf) Racial Skills

Dunmer (Dark 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.

Dark Elf Racial Passives

The Dark Elves are an interesting Race because they are equally good as Stamina and Magicka roles, making them a great choice for those that are not certain just how they wish to play their character. In addition, they are ideal for those wishing to take the Vampirism Skill Line, as the extra Flame Resistance will help to offset some of their weakness to Fire-based attacks. Consider taking this Race if you can’t decide between Stamina or Magicka, or you know you want to be a Vampire.

Best Builds for Dark Elf

  • Magicka DPS: Good (Destruction Staff)
  • Stamina DPS: Good (Two-Handed Weapon, Dual Weapons, Bow)
  • Healer: Good (Restoration Staff)
  • Tank: Good (One-Handed and Shield)
