For other uses, see Athletics.

The Athletics skill determines how fast one can run or swim and how long one can exert themselves before becoming fatigued. One can increase their skill level by running and swimming, though swimming is more effective.

Governing attribute: Speed

Ranks and skill perksEdit

  • Novice (0-24): Slowly regenerates Fatigue while running.
  • Apprentice (25-49): Regenerates Fatigue 25% faster than novice while running.
  • Journeyman (50-74): Regenerates Fatigue 50% faster than novice while running.
  • Expert (75-99): Regenerates Fatigue 75% faster than novice while running.
  • Master (100): Running does not reduce Fatigue regeneration.

Leveling tipsEdit

  • Abstain from fast-traveling, as fast-traveling does not increase one's Athletics skill.
  • Although this skill will level as one travels around the world, they can level Athletics by finding a wall or corner of a building and running against it (if one sneaks against a wall they only gain experience for Sneak, not Sneak and Athletics).
  • If this is done in a building, make sure that it is an inn (or alternatively a guild hall); if it is done within a shop or household, the owner will ask for one to leave when they close the shop/go to bed.
  • The camera can also be tilted straight up while swimming, forcing one to swim in place without having to find a corner to swim into.
  • Athletics will take a long time to level for swimming and longer for running.
  • One can also find a corner or open water that is safe and put a rubber band around the controller's joy sticks; this will cause one to in circles, increasing the Athletics skill while being away from the game.
  • Take laps around Imperial Lake (the lake around the Imperial City).

NPC dialogueEdit

Once the Athletics skill level reaches 70 or higher, people will begin to say: "You're a fit one. Been running a lot?"

UsefulnessEdit

Athletics is not quite as useful as it could be. Close quarter fighters will find it useful for chasing down mages and archers quickly. At higher levels, Athletics can help fatigue regeneration for fighters that prefer to bob and weave in battle.
