Like with most MMORPGs, Elder Scrolls Online characters also have a character Level. This numerical value is used to determine other values. Values that can affect ESO Gold gain for your Elder Scrolls Online account.
Levels, gear and ESO gold
The first two uses of a character’s level is to determine if he/she can equip specific Elder Scrolls Online armor and Elder Scrolls Online weapons. The level is also used to determine if a character will gain experience, ESO gold, ultimate charges and loot from killing a mob. Finally, the level also indicates their racial skill line level. This in turn dictates which racial passives are available to the character.
Points, limits and ESO gold
Every time a character on an ESO account levels up, he/she gains an attribute point and a skill point. The former can be used to increase magicka, health or stamina. The latter is used to unlock skills or morph them. The maximum level a character can have is 50. Note that skill progression doesn’t stop however as skill points can still be earned while hunting ESO gold through Skyshards.
