Lanes in The Elder Scrolls Legends are the names given to each side of the halved battefield during gameplay. When players play Cards during a match they place them on 1 of the 2 lanes available.
- Lanes effectively create two battlefields, which prevents a situation where 1 card dominates the entire battlefield. A powerful card placed on 1 lane can potentially be countered from a card in the other lane.
- The left lane is called the Field Lane. There are no special rules associated with it. It’s an unrestricted lane where creatures can fight each other with ease.
- The right lane is called the Shadow Lane. Unlike the Field lane, this lane comes with a built-in special rule: any creature summoned here gains Cover, which protects it from attack until that player’s next turn.
- Cover isn’t the only lane effect you’ll encounter. In the campaign and the Arena you might find yourself on a field where one of the lanes has a fun effect. For example, creatures in one lane might be granted a random item, or maybe you’ll encounter a graveyard lane where the dead will rise again as Skeletons.
Lane Effects in The Elder Scrolls Legends are defining features of the Lanes of the battlefield. When a Lane Effect is in play, any cards played in that lane are subject to the features of the Lane Effect.
