What are Breton’s Passive Skills in Elder Scrolls Online?

A magical yet human race.

Elder Scrolls Online lets you choose to make your character from a long list of races. Each race has its own special abilities and will change the way you play the game ever so slightly. Bretons are unique because they are a human race that still has an affinity for magic.
