Activate is a card effect that can be found on Supports in the Elder Scrolls Legends that first appeared in the Core Set. Supports with Activate abilities may be used once per turn. Most of these have a limited number of uses.
In contrast to Support cards with Ongoing, cards with Activate do not have a continuous effect on the board. They need to be selected and target other cards to activate their effect. When the amount of uses is reached, the Support is sacrificed, unless it has an unlimited amount of uses. Activate can be used on the same turn as the Support is summoned. Activate can be found on Supports from all Attributes.
