Elder Scrolls: Blades – All Enemy Weaknesses & Resistances | How To Beat Every Enemy Type

Fighting is what Elder Scrolls: Blades is all about — and it should look pretty familiar to players that have experienced games like Infinity Blade 2. Even if you’re amazing at dodging attacks, you’ll always need better gear to beat the toughest opponents. This is an RPG, and each enemy has a specific weakness you can exploit, or a resistance you’ll want to avoid.

And there are a lot of enemies in Elder Scrolls: Blades. Most of the famous bad guys from every iteration of the game return here, and they all exist to cause problems for the player. Even the mighty dragons return from Skyrim, and they’re a huge pain in the butt.

If you’re looking to conquer challenges, it’s better to fight smarter than harder. Just gaining levels doesn’t always make battles easier. You need the right equipment, and every enemy in Elder Scrolls: Blades has a weakness.

All Enemy Weaknesses & Resistances | How To Beat Every Enemy Type

Every enemy in Elder Scrolls: Blades has a specific weakness.

Some enemies have multiple weaknesses — the more weaknesses you stack together, the more damage you’ll do. You’ll want to enchant your weapons and select the right damage type (cleaving, slashing or bashing) to quickly wipe out certain enemy types.

Some enemies are also immune to certain types of damage. Immunity means that aren’t effected by that damage type at all.
