What Is Battle Level
Battle Level is a system in ESO designed to scale lower level players up to be competitive in PVP content and also some PVE content. Battle Level only effects Cyrodiil, Imperial City, Wrothgar (Orsinium) and Group Dungeons at this time. When you enter a scaled zone with Battle Level turned on your stats will scale up to average Veteran Rank 16 stats.
Max Health, Magicka, Stamina, all Regeneration, Armor and Spell Resistance all scale up. Spell Critical and Weapon Critical are not effected by Battle Level. The cost of abilities also scales up to be the same cost of VR 16 characters.
Battle Level does take into account gear enchants, set bonuses and your distribution of Attribute Points but it does not replicate the effects of Champion Points.
You can turn off Battle Level in Settings > Gameplay by switching Battle Level to Off. You can only do this switch outside of Cyrodiil, Imperial City, Wrothgar and Group Dungeons.
When you join a group via the Group Finder your Group Dungeon will be scaled to Veteran Rank 16. All members of the group will also scale up using Battle Level to VR 16. This occurs when using the Group Finder for non-Vet and Veteran Group Dungeons.
