< Morrowind: Attributes

Agility is the governing Attribute for Block, Light Armor, Marksman, and Sneak. It affects:

  • Your ability to successfully hit enemies with a weapon and dodge their attacks (not magic).
  • Your ability to use the Sneak (including pickpocketing), Security and Block skills. Note - this is not the same as skills 'governed' by Agility - those skills simply provide bonuses to raising Agility when leveling up, and are not themselves necessarily enhanced by the character's Agility.
  • Your maximum Fatigue.
  • Your resistance against staggering.

Character CreationEdit

The starting values for Agility vary by race and gender:

Race M F Race M F
Argonian 50 40 Khajiit 50 50
Breton 30 30 Nord 30 30
Dark Elf 40 40 Orc 35 35
High Elf 40 40 Redguard 40 40
Imperial 30 30 Wood Elf 50 50

The following classes have Agility as a favored attribute and receive a +10 bonus:

The Lover birthsign also grants a +25 bonus to Agility.


  • Since Agility affects the resistance against staggering, using the Berserk power of Orcs which decreases Agility by 100 points for 60 seconds will cause the user to fall when struck even with maxed Agility.
