Who are Bandits?[ | ]

Bandits are notorious looters and thieves. They can mostly be found in camps, caves or on the road.

At Dragonsreach you can obtain Quests which require you to kill bandit leaders. Leaders don't usually have any extraordinary abilities.

Bandits don't have their own Faction, and mostly move in groups.

Bandit camps are always good to clear out, for there might be anything from bread to rubies there.
