HistoryThe Altmer hail from the Summerset Isles and are the most gifted race with the arcane arts. As a result they tend to be snobbish and elitist. They wish to keep the image and appearance of their ancestors, the Aldmer, so they use selective reproduction and marriage traditions. They are best known for being advanced in the practice of magic, having skill in every division of magic, such as Destruction or Enchanting.
Altmer are arguably the best race for a mage-oriented character, with bonuses to every magic skill. They are also the only race with an initial boost to one of the three main attributes with a permanent +50 magicka boost at the beginning of the game.
- Alteration +5
- Conjuration +5
- Destruction +5
- Enchanting +5
- Illusion +10
- Restoration +5
- Highborn: Magicka regeneration improves for 60 seconds
- Highborn: High Elf characters begin the game with 50 additional points of Magicka
