Nord 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.
Nord Racial Passives
Nords are a very tough to kill, and should be considered by those that wish to Tank as their primary role, or for those that wish to PvP, as extra Physical and Spell Resistance goes a long way in both of these cases. The increased Ultimate generation is also ideal for both of these, since Ultimate abilities often determine the victor in Cyrodiil, and it can really improve your effectiveness in group content. Select this Race if you know you want to Tank.
