Abilities are class-specific actions performed during battle in The Elder Scrolls Online.[1][2] New abilities are learned and unlocked by leveling up. Abilities can be combined to augment damage output. For example, a Sorcerer ability can use Synergy, and, when used in conjunction with the Dragonknight ability Conduit, a more powerful attack can be performed.[1][2] Synergies combine abilities from characters of different classes to make them more powerful.

Abilities can also be morphed, with sufficient skill progression, and a skill point use. Currently, abilities will only feature one morph choice.[3] An example of a Morph Choice is Rushed Ceremony. Passive abilities will not Morph, but more than one skill point can be put into these, which will increase the effectiveness of that passive ability.[3]

There are altars throughout Tamriel that allow the Vestige to reset their abilities, for a small fee. [4]

The abilities listed below are those that are currently confirmed to be appearing in the game. However, Zenimax is planning on adding additional skill lines after release, which can only be found by interacting with the environment.[3]
