For other uses, see Orsimer.

The Orsimer (commonly known as Orcs) are a playable race in The Elder Scrolls Online. The Orcs of Wrothgar are members of the Daggerfall Covenant, along with the Bretons and Redguards, though they are not bound to this alliance if the game is pre-ordered.

A hardy mountain people, Orcs are considered uncivilized outcasts by most other races. However, they are recognized as the finest smiths in Tamriel, and Orcish arms and armor are prized by warriors and craftsmen everywhere.

Official descriptionEdit

Though other races often regard the Orcs as barbarians and even beasts, these noble warriors have an ancient culture forged from endless warfare in their harsh mountain homelands. Orcs live under a simple code of honor by which the strong survive and the strongest rule. As the greatest smiths in Tamriel, their weapons and armor are prized by warriors everywhere. During the reign of the Second Empire, when their kingdom of Orsinium was finally granted provincial status, its restoration helped solidify their devotion to the new Daggerfall Covenant.

    • kind of disappointed about the orc racial. was hoping for something along the lines of berserk :/
    • a boost in smithing skill would have also been nice, they are master smiths after all and they gave them a small smithing boost in skyrim.
