4 months ago · Guide Information



The most naturally talented warriors in Tamriel, the Redguards of Hammerfell have a hardy constitution and a natural resistance to poison. They can call upon an Adrenaline Rush in combat.

Stat Boosts
One-handed +10
Alteration +5
Archery +5
Block +5
Destruction +5
Smithing +5
Racial Abilities Notes
Adrenaline Rush Stamina regenerates 10x faster for 60 seconds.
Resist Poison Your Redguard blood gives you 50% resistance to poison.

Lore-wise, the Redguard is reknown of the greatest of warriors, and as their home province of Hammerfell neighbors that of Skyrim, they’re bound to be interested in the outcome of the civil war there.

Lore aside, however, how do their abilities stack up? Well, Resist Poison isn’t terribly impressive, mostly because you’ll rarely ever have to deal with poison - Frostbite Spiders and Charus are among the few foes that will poison you. As for Adrenaline Rush, boosting your Stamina regeneration for sixty seconds isn’t bad, but for a warrior build, the Orc’s Berserker Rage is far, far better.
