Synergy is a unique type of skill in The Elder Scrolls Online.

One example of a synergy skill is the Sorcerer class, which has a spell called Lightning Splash that, when cast, summons an area-of-effect lightning spell on the ground. A player can activate the synergy skill by pressing the appropriate keybind and it will cause the player using the synergy to cast a powerful area-of-effect shock damage to all enemies in their vicinity. This synergy is called "Conduit."


  • Synergy skills are those that naturally blend players' skills together to bring down tougher enemies or to bring down enemies faster and more effectively.
  • Another example: A mage casts fire. A warrior can then go in and start throwing fireballs in every direction. This synergy does not appear in the game, however.
  • Enemies have Synergy skill as well, for example Dwemer Constructs.
