Redguards are the dark-skinned, wiry-haired people of Hammerfell, often considered the most naturally giften warrior race in Tamriel.

For more information, see the main lore article.

A list of all the Redguards in Cyrodiil can be found here.






In-Game Description

The most naturally talented warriors in Tamriel. In addition to their cultural affinities for many weapon and armor styles, they also have a hardy constitution and a natural resistance to disease and poison.


Redguards, the fiercest warriors in the game, are masters of martial arts. With bonuses in Blade, Blunt and Athletics, they are fast, and deadly warriors.

Redguards have a resistance to poison and disease, which can prove very useful.

Stealth characters may want to use a Redguard character if they want to gain an Endurance bonus at the beginning of the game, but not lose attribute points in Agility or Speed.

Their Adrenaline Rush power is very useful, and can be used creatively in a variety of situations, and it doesn't have the agility weakness of the Orc's Berserk power.

Enemy Redguards will generally be encountered as Bandits (including Bandit Ringleaders), clad in light armor and wielding blunt weapons. Among the vampires, the Rogues and Scouts are Redguards.
