There are 10 races you can choose from in Elder Scrolls Legends, each with four different avatars. Fans of the Elder Scrolls franchise will be very happy to see that all the races in the series are being covered and the number of choices is really big, at least if we’re comparing it to other similar CCGs out there. And we’re going to talk about the Elder Scrolls Legends races here!

When you start the game, you have to choose a race that you will represent, as well as your avatar. The avatar not only shows what race you belong to, but it’s the way others will see you in versus matches. Of course, choosing your race in Elder Scrolls Legends is more than just an aesthetic thing: it also affects the types of cards you are most likely to get when playing, as well as the Legendary card rewards you get at certain levels in the game (currently when you reach level 24 and level 32 in TESL you are rewarded with a legendary card based on the race you are playing as).

In this article, we won’t focus on what race is the best in the game and what legendaries each one rewards you with (but we’ll have articles on each of these, so make sure you check back soon!). Instead, we’re going to look at all the Elder Scrolls Legends races in the game, the avatars and their specifications. The good thing, if you didn’t pick the right one the first time? You can always change your race and/or avatar from the game’s menu.

Now without further ado, let’s check out all the races and avatars in TESL!

Races don’t matter as much later on in the game when you will be building your own decks and you will select the dominant two attributes / colors. But if you have a favorite one, it doesn’t hurt to play as the race that gives you more of that!
