Stamina is your character's physical energy, and is used to perform various basic combat actions, such as blocking, dodging, and stealth, as well as activating Stamina Skills. Stamina is comparable to "Fatigue" in earlier Elder Scrolls games.

Increasing StaminaEdit

The amount of stamina you have depends on your character's level. Each time you level up, your maximum stamina attribute will decrease. You can choose to restore 111 points to your maximum stamina using an attribute point.

Your stamina attribute can be increased by using equipment with a Glyph of Stamina or Glyph of Prismatic Defense enchantment.

Bosmer, Dunmer, Imperials, Nords, Redguards, and Orcs have more maximum Stamina than other races, and Bosmer, Khajiit, and Redguards have faster stamina recovery.
