Cover is a card effect that can be found on Creatures and Items in the Elder Scrolls Legends that first appeared in the Core Set. It is applied on creatures summoned in the Shadow Lane. A creature with Cover can't be attacked for one turn (but can still be targeted by actions and abilities). Creatures with Guard can't gain cover.
When a creature attacks, it will instantly lose Cover even before the one turn limit. Cover is predominantly associated with Strength and Agility. Creatures with the card effect can be recognized by their Cover animation and icon applied on the card.

Synergies[edit]

  • Charge: When played in the Shadow Lane, Charge creatures get Cover like all other creatures. However, when they attack that same turn, they will still lose it.
  • Guard: Guard creatures can never get Cover, including the Cover applied at the Shadow Lane.
  • Move: Creatures moved into the Shadow Lane get Cover applied to them.
