The Altmer have been around for a very long time, and they have picked up a few tricks in that time. They are highly intelligent and skilled in the ways of magic, specializing in spellcasting. When you build a deck around High Elves (who have Intelligence and Willpower attributes), you will gather a lot of magical action cards and creatures that apply damage or health bonuses to the other cards around them.
For more information, see the main lore article.
In-Game Description and Bonus
The Altmer are one of the longest-lived and most intelligent races in Tamriel. They have a natural affinity for spells. As a High Elf, you will more quickly collect spell-related cards.
The race’s theme is “actions“.
