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.

Best Builds for Nords

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

      Well, Nord seems to be more substantial with health recovery, longer affect from drinks and damage reduction.

        The Orc should have the rugged perk and more of the same amount of health buff as the nord because Orsimer are large, tough , beast like elf kind.

          Why does the orc not have the most racial skill health buff and the rugged perk when orcs are huge and tough!?
