Changing Breton racial passives

Bretons are mentioned to be magicka class, but they do not have mag regen, nor spell damage boost.
So, what if:

Add Mag regen to Gift of Magnus passive: Increases Max Magicka by 4/7/10% and Magicka regen by 2/4/6%
This change would help to any mag role and class, because in the current meta, mag regen is a king. And 3% cost reduction from last passive is much lower, than boost to regen, that another races have, if calculate it in the real fight conditions.

OR

Add Mag damage boost to Magicka Mastery passive: Reduces the Magicka cost of your abilities by 1/2/3% and increases your Magic damage by 1/2/3%
(Note: Magic damage - is a separate type of spell damage, like Fire, Ice etc.)
We already have 2 races focused on the elemental damage - Altmer and Dunmer, that is preferable to use with mag-DD Sorc and DK. But we do not have any race, that can be best for mag-DD Templar and NB. This can fix it.

OR

Passive Spell Resistance turns into Resistant passive: Increases Spell Resistance by 1320 / 2640 / 3960 and Critical Resistance by 250 / 500 / 750
Since Bretons are have some tanky passive and Alliance points gain from 1st passive, why not improve their tankyness in the PVP by adding some natural Critical resistance? This looks pretty organic and will allow Bretons to save some points in the CP and invest it somewhere else.

What do you think?

    Polls in the forums are merely entertainment value and offer Zos not useful information about how the game population actually thinks about any given topic. Basically just an exercise with no actual value.

    Bretons have magicka cost reduction rather than regen, max magicka and spell resist which it is good to offer a choice for damage reduction.

    Magicka regen cannot be added to Gift of Magnus, as pointed out in OP's previous thread on the subject, it is a racial passive in at least one other class as max magika ONLY. Further CANNOT combine racial passives to get more passives. That is so OBVIOUS it really should not need to be said.

    Besides the fact it is good to have some classes that have a little bit of damage reduction. Offers more choice rather than merely extremely minor variations of what is already available which is really all this poll is looking at.

    When it comes to balance adjustments, ZOS culture seems to prefer the nerf approach rather than the buff approach. I'm not complaining or being negative, just stating what I've seen.

    With that said, your ideas are valid. But not likely to be considered.

    The crit resistance would not make sense. My understanding is that there is no critical strikes in PvE. So would be worthless there. But they would instantly become the PvP meta. Crit resistance in PvP would be OP.

    There are roles outside DPS and in those role, certain races excel over others

    Magic DPS
    Altmer/Dunmer
    Healer
    Breton/Argonian/Altmer
    Magic Tank
    Breton/Argonian/Dunmer

    Why is this so hard to get? Why does everything HAVE to be DPS oriented? Even the suggestion for crit resistance is just a veiled attempt at upping Breton Damage, granted a very poor attempt since crit resistance is Red CP and Damage is Blue CP while Regen is green, so even if you move CP points around, Red tree is mostly defensive with little to do with offense or sustain, outside Unchained and a few other CP bonuses.

    Putting aside the argument that damage and resources shouldn't come from racials (just my opinion), breton are a potent defensive magicka class and we'll established in lore as being so. The fill a game play and story niche admirably.

    Just go alter or dumner for dps.

    Breton is good for heals and good in PvP (if you want a tankier toon).

    And your third option makes no sense. How would putting less CP in crit resist mean more in damage or recovery? They're separate trees.

    Best healer is Argonian, not Breton or (just lol here) Altmer. Why not, i.e. Redguard tho?

    Magic tank? WTF is this? Do they exists somewhere outside of your dreams? Anyone of you would be happy to see a "magic tank" in the trials? Or just pledges? Not me, really.
    Normal tanks (like my Nord-DK) have overcapped resists without any of racials passives.

    Breton and Altmer are not "basically equivalent", comparing Breton vs Altmer:
    • Breton cost reduction passive comes out to about an avg of 104 cheaper cost.
    • Breton spell resist comes out to about 6% less dmg taken from spells.
    However
    • Breton cost reduction does not scale well, in fact it gets worse the more sources of cost reduction you stack (light armor/sets/cost reduction enchants). This is because cost reduction as a whole has increasing diminishing returns as you stack more.
    • Altmer 9% mag regen on the other hand, scales better the more you stack. This passive is and always has been stronger than Breton's cost reduction.
    • Breton spell resist only has limited usefulness, as the majority of magicka builds rely on shields.
    • Meanwhile Altmer elemental dmg is useful for all builds.

    The best way to even things out while maintaining the racial flavors would be to give a slight increase to Breton's cost reduction, and/or add something like 4% reduced dmg taken on shields to their spell resist passive (mirroring Altmer's 4% dmg boost).

    The benefit of the High Elf Spell Charge passive was greatly reduced in 2.5.5 (PC patch notes)
    Fixed an issue where percentage bonuses to the same type of stat (Magicka Recovery, Max Magicka, etc.) would stack multiplicatively rather than additively. This will result in some stats changing slightly (generally going down).

    That issue was the way it worked in the game since day one. It was merely a manner Zos worked to reduce max stats and sustain. Even Zos acknowledges the results are less.

    A Sorc High Elf will not receive full benefit as a result due to having Capacitor passive increasing their magicka regen by 10%. Add in Vampire and the benefits of having all that became notably less after 2.5.5.

    To further add to this, outside of PvP, anyone really interested in their damage is not going to stack regen. It is a DPS loss and weakens the argument that the Spell Charge passive is strong when stacking regen since it is a weaker path to go to begin with (though anyone's prerogative).

    No. Bretons should not be more powerful in damage output compared to Dunmer or Altmer. Bretons are more defensive based compared to other two main magicka races, and it is good thing. If all races would be more or less the same, there would be no point at all.

    Adding +3% magic damage would NOT make Bretons more powerful than High or Dark elves. Not even equals to them.
    Also, you are completely ignored +6% mag regen or +1500 crit.res options - probably, this would greatly increase breton's damage output too. :D

    Bretons Should be left the way they are, also, anyone can be a tank.

    Stamina types can go with the inner beast morph from the undaunted skill line or use puncture & its morphs from the one-hand & shield skill line to taunt enemies & draw their attention away from the healers & DPS players.

    Magicka types on the other hand can do the same thing except with inner fire instead of inner beast & all they need to taunt foes is a heavy attack from a frost staff as well as the respective passive.

    Either way, it is not always about the race, it is about what class you use with that race that determines the outcome on the battlefield.

If you have questions or concerns about an in-game disciplinary action, please contact https://help.elderscrollsonline.com/ to ask about a suspension or ban, and any other support-related feedback. We cannot assist with in-game violations on the forums.
      • Flaming: It’s okay to disagree and debate on the official ESO forums, but we do ask that you keep all disagreements civil, constructive, and on-topic. If a discussion gets heated and turns into a debate, remember that you should stick to debating the post and/or thread topic. It is never appropriate to resort to personal comments or jabs about those participating in the thread discussion.
      • Goodbye/Quitting Threads: We understand that sometimes people will leave the ESO community, and want to post a “goodbye” or “quitting” thread. Generally, we have found that “goodbye” and “quitting” threads have a tendency to go downhill fast. It is our policy to read the feedback in “goodbye” and “quitting” threads and close them, regardless of whether they are constructive or not.
      • Hate Speech: We take the use of hate speech very seriously in the official ESO community, and have a zero tolerance policy. Our definition of hate speech is prejudice or hateful comments, slurs, or statements that promote violence or intolerance toward others because of the following:
        • Race.
        • Creed.
        • Color.
        • National Origin.
        • Gender.
        • Age.
        • Disability.
        • Sexual Orientation.
        • Lifestyle.
        • Any other personally identifying factors.
        Please help us ensure that everyone feels welcome and free to participate on the official ESO community forums.
      • Impersonation: We do not tolerate impersonation of any kind in the official ESO community, and take impersonation attempts very seriously when they do occur. Impersonation includes using a display name, photos, posts, or any other material with the intent to fool people into believing you are a ZeniMax Online Studios employee, another community member, a celebrity, or anyone else you are not.
      • Inappropriate Content and Language: Certain topics and subjects are deemed inappropriate and not permitted on the official ESO forums. Things that we consider inappropriate are usually illegal, extremely volatile or violent, obscene, vulgar, or simply inappropriate for an official game forum such as ours. Inappropriate content on the ESO forums includes, but is not limited to the following:
        • Extreme violence
        • Illegal substances and activities
        • Pirated copyright-protected material
        • Pornography and other sexually explicit topics
        • Real-world religion and politics
        • Tasteless, vulgar, or obscene material
        One specific term we’d like to call out, as well, is the term “gay.” It is never appropriate to use “gay” as a derogatory term.
      • Malicious Links: We do not tolerate the posting of malicious links on our forums, for any reason. This includes links to pornographic material, key-loggers, and browser hijackers, but also includes links to private game server sites, phishing scams, and sites that sell in-game currencies and power-leveling services.
        We greatly appreciate when our community members wish to report a harmful or misleading ESO-related site to us, but please do not do so on the official ESO forums. If you discover a site you want to report to us, please report them at https://help.elderscrollsonline.com/.
      • Names in Thread Titles: Please refrain from placing the names of ZeniMax Online Studios employees or ESO community members in your thread titles. Directing a thread at a specific individual, or otherwise using a thread to call someone out, is not considered constructive. If you need to get a hold of a specific community member, please send them a private message.
      • Naming-and-Shaming: We do not allow posts or threads that are created for the purpose of “naming-and-shaming” other community member(s). “Naming-and-shaming” is the act of creating a post to call out an individual or group by name, and making them the subject of public accusation, ridicule and/or shaming. Generally, naming-and-shaming involves an in-game situation and/or Terms of Service violation, which the ESO Community Team is unable to assist with. A certain amount of rivalry and competitive razzing is healthy for any game community, especially one with PVP elements, but naming-and-shaming goes well beyond that. It typically elevates to a point where the subject feels legitimately harassed. We believe that naming-and-shaming posts and threads can be abused and are very harmful to the community. We also don't feel that publicly calling out or accusing others by name on our forums is in spirit of the game or our community. If you genuinely believe someone has violated our Terms of Service, you should report them in-game via the support interface — do not bring the situation onto the official ESO community forums.
      • Personal Information: For the sake of your own identity protection and personal privacy, we ask that you please do not share any personal information in the official The Elder Scrolls Online community. This also goes for sharing another community member’s personal information — doing so is not only considered malicious behavior, but it is a violation of our Terms of Service and something we take very seriously.
      • Petitions and Protests: We do not allow petitions or protests on our forums. Due to the fact that both promote the use of demands and replies that consist of “/signed” or little else, we feel that neither encourage nor allow for meaningful and constructive discussion. Instead of using a petition or protest, we recommend presenting your thoughts as a request or suggestion so everyone in the community can discuss it.
      • Role-Play/Fan Fiction God Modding: We support the fan fiction and role-playing communities on the ESO forum, and ask that you please respect your fellow writers and role-players by not “god modding.” God modding is the act of forcing another community member’s character into a situation they have not agreed to. If you wish to involve another person's character in a story or role-play scenario, please respect that individual’s wishes and get their permission first. Failure to do so is considered “god modding,” and is not allowed on the ESO forums.
      • Rude and Insulting Comments/Commentary: We understand that sometimes tempers rise, but it is never acceptable to resort to rude comments and insults. This goes for rude comments and insults directed at other community members, and ZeniMax Online Studios employees alike.
      • Selling, Trading, and Sharing Game Accounts: The act of selling, trading, or sharing your ESO account is a violation of our Terms of Service. As such, we also do not allow discussion about selling, trading, or sharing game accounts on our forums.
      • Spamming: Please do not post spam on the official The Elder Scrolls Online forums. Below are a few examples of what we define as spamming:
        • Posting the same message more than once.
        • Posting messages that are nonsensical or have no real content.
        • Posting messages or images large enough to disrupt the normal flow of conversation.
        • Reposting material that has been removed by a member of the ESO Team.
        Also, please refrain from posting the same topic in multiple areas of the forum, or cross-posting in an attempt to gain further views or replies. This is considered spamming, and the duplicate threads will be removed.
      • Thread Bumping: Please refrain from replying to discussion threads for the sole purpose of “bumping” them. This is considered to be a form of spam because it does not add to the discussion in a constructive or meaningful way. We understand that everyone would like to keep their discussion active and visible, but we encourage you to strive for meaningful and constructive posts instead of posts that consist of nothing more than “Bump!”
      • Trolling or Baiting: The act of trolling is defined as something that is created for the intent to provoke conflict, shock others, or to elicit a strong negative or emotional reaction. It’s okay and very normal to disagree with others, and even to debate, but provoking conflict, baiting, inciting, mocking, etc. is never acceptable in the official The Elder Scrolls Online community. If you do not have something constructive or meaningful to add to a discussion, we strongly recommend you refrain from posting in that thread, and find another discussion to participate in instead. It is also not constructive or helpful to publicly call out others and accuse them of trolling, or call them a troll—please refrain from doing so. If you genuinely believe someone is trolling, please report the post or thread to the ESO Team, and leave it at that.

    Yes - for Mag damage bonus
    As I said in the other thread I like the 3% bonus to magicka damage. I personally feel that there should not be a " best in slot" go to race. I think that each should have pro and cons. Right now Altmer is the go to race for magicka dps ( aside from DK) because the Bretons passives are lacking not because it was meant to be that way or Bretons are supposed to be tanky. They merely get relegated to those rolls because the Altmer is the better choice.

    Giving Bretons a bonus to magicka damage would not make them better than Altmer but it would give players more options. Do I want to boost my magicka damage or my elemental damage more? More options is a good thing.
