Imperials are a Race in the Elder Scrolls Online. The Imperial in ESO reside in Cyrodiil and the Imperial City, with its proud Empire now collapsed due to a Daedric invasion. Players can select a race during character creation, and different races have different bonuses and associations. Players can change their race by purchasing a Crown Store item.
Imperials are available on the crown store for the price of 2,100 crowns or as part of a collection of exclusive content for those who have purchased the Imperial Edition of the game. Imperials may start as any faction they chose.

Imperial 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.
Imperial Racial Passives
Imperials make ideal tanks, not only because of their bonuses to Health and Stamina, but because they regain all 3 resources when they deal damage, and have cost reduction for all abilities. Tanks use both Stamina and Magicka quite regularly, and regaining them really helps out. Health is just an added bonus. These same qualities make them a decent choice for PvP as well, though not as good as some other Races.
