The Argonian Race’s passive skills reflect their people’s perilous swamp environment, giving bonuses to the healing done, restoration staves, disease and poison resistance, resources gained from consuming potions, swimming speed, plus base health, Magicka, and stamina.
The Argonians are possessive of a cool intellect and are well-versed in the magical arts, stealth, and the use of blades. They are also guerrilla warfare experts, long accustomed to defending their borders from invaders. They often serve as the scouts and skirmishers for the forces of the Pact.
Argonians have the following Racial Passives in The Elder Scrolls Online.
- Amphibian: Increases exp gain with the Resto Staff Skill line by 15% Increases swimming speed by 50%
- Life Mender: Increases your healing done by 6%
- Argonian Resistance: Increases Max Health by 1000 and Poison and Disease Resistance by 2310.
- Resourceful: Increases your Max Magicka by 1000
Whenever you drink a potion you restore 3125 Health, Magicka, and Stamina.
Overall the Argonian racial bonuses seem quite situational. No doubt the increased swimming speed will be handy if you’re ever forced to fight in the water, perhaps in Cyrodiil for example, but it is definitely a very situational bonus. The extra resistance to disease and poisons and increased Health and healing received are all useful bonuses.
The Argonian Race is part of the Ebonheart Pact faction in The Elder Scrolls Online.
This faction was created by a pack between the Argonian, Dark Elf, and Nord races.
Lore says that despite the three races’ hate for each other, the alliance was formed by necessity as they recognized the threat from unified enemies.
Players selecting this faction will begin in Bleakrock Isle after their escape from Coldharbour.

The Argonian Race background
The Argonians are a reptilian people of the Black Marsh, a vast swampland area located in southeastern Tamriel.
Other races often refer to them as lizards of ‘Lizard folk’.
The Argonians are considered experts in guerilla warfare by defending their borders from enemies over countless centuries.
Lore tells us that Argonians are agile and cunning and possess natural immunity to poison and disease.
They are swift swimmers and can breathe underwater. Argonians are also very adept spellcasters and excel in the art of stealth.
It is said the Argonians are strange, expressionless, reserved people, who are slow to know and trust.
Even Argonians would agree they often have trouble fully understanding the body language, emotions, and motivations of fellow kinsmen.
Another known aspect of Argonian culture is their reliance and reverence for the Hist.
The exact relationship between the two species is not entirely understood, but there are reports that suggest that the Hist act as a hive mind for Argonians on top of being a cornerstone of their culture.
While the relationship does make some aspects of Argonians in The Elder Scrolls make no sense, it is undeniable that the two are fundamentally linked. Hopefully, The Elder Scrolls will continue to explore the Argonians in some interesting new ways so that fans can get to understand them and their unique nature more in the future.
