Pilfer is a card effect that can be found on Creatures in the Elder Scrolls Legends that first appeared in the Core Set. When your creature with Pilfer deals damage to your opponent, a bonus effect is triggered.
All cards with Pilfer follow the same principle, first the creatures needs to deal damage to your opponent, which includes damage from attacking, summoning cards like Archer’s Gambit or equipping Quicksilver Crossbow. This is then followed by triggering the described effect. The effect will trigger without a chance to summon other cards in between. Pilfer works exceptionally well with Move effects. Pilfer is predominantly associated with Agility and Willpower. Creatures with the card effect can be recognized by their Pilfer icon at the bottom of the card.


  • Battle: In combination with Breakthrough, the excess damage will trigger Pilfer effects.
  • Breakthrough: The excess damage will trigger Pilfer effects.
