There are ten playable races in The Elder Scrolls Legends. Each race corresponds to two attributes. Players can choose an avatar to represent a specific race and gain a bonus to collecting specific types of cards.


Race choice does not affect matches or the types of decks or cards that can be played. Instead, it influences card collection: each race is themed around a different play style, and the player will more quickly collect cards that fit their race's theme.
