Bosmer (Wood Elf) - Description, Racial Bonuses and Penalties

The Bosmer are a race of elves. They are also known as Wood Elves because they live in the huge forests of Valenwood.

They belong to the The Aldmeri Dominion so if you chose Bosmer your allies will be the Altmer and Khajiit. Their home is in Valenwood.

Bosmer are probably the smallest race. Their appearance in general is similar to appearance of other elves. They have weak bodies but their height makes them quick and tricky. They are awesome archers and thieves.

Bosmer are less noble and civilised than the Altmer and they do not like huge towns. They prefer freedom and wild nature.

      Can we get a little more info on this Race please I always liked wood elves too but we don't know what crafting skills will be granted for most of the races. Not on this site anyway this site is easy to navigate and gets to the point I like it but it lacks the info one would need to study all abilities in order to react to allied synergy

        Hello Matt. All we know about crafting can be found here. ZeniMax didn’t tell any information about racial crafting skills and all we know is that each race will be able to craft special racial armor. I will add more information when it is available.

        About abilities: we are filling the site with abilities. Almost all Class skills are added. We can’t publish a lot of information because of NDA. It also takes time to add all we know. Anyway we are working and if you want to help us – you are welcome.
