Morrowind:Skills

Jump to: navigation, search

There are 27 skills in Morrowind, each of which determines how well you can perform various tasks. Each skill is governed by an Attribute; there are three to five skills governed by each attribute (except Luck). The relationship between governing attributes and skills is discussed on the attributes page. Each skill also belongs to one of three specializations. The numbers in parentheses are what the game uses to identify the skill.
