Battlegrounds are PvP locations in The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind. In a battleground, three teams consisting of four players are pitted against each other in different gamemodes. Currently, battlegrounds are only available to people that have purchased the Morrowind chapter.
- Ald Carac – A dilapidated ruin of an ancient Dwemer city
- Ularra – An old overgrown Daedric worshipping site
- Foyada Quarry – A quarry set in the shadow of Red Mountain

- The names of the teams originate from The Elder Scrolls: Arena, in the early stages of development, cities in Tamriel had gladiatorial teams that were going to fight each other in a tournament setting. The teams were going to the cities of Helstrom (Pit Daemons), Torval (Firedrakes), and Narsis (Stormlords).[OOG 1]
