Here's the question, Do you think there is a chance to see Snow Elves in TESO? Why or why not? Just curious to see what, if anything people know about this mysterious race and reasonable explanations to why they are so sparse. * Edited to remove any spoilers. This topic may contain spoilers.

Could you put a *spoiler alert* in the topic
As for the Snow Elves, they lost at the Battle of Moesring towards the end of the First Era. The Elder Scrolls Online however takes place in the Second Era. For all we know the Snow Elves could have met their fate by the hands of tht Dwemer by then and/or splinter groups had formed to find another soloution for survival.

We'll surely see Falmer...as for Snow Elves, I don't think so...

Sorry about any spoilers I may have attempted to post. I was going off info thats found publicly available on tes wiki. What I mean to bring up is your point exactly Nerevarine. They lost the battle in moesring but surely that wasnt the only group that escaped skyrim. Perhaps other groups may have fled south to seek shelter with other races of elves? Just speculation.

Maybe they fled south to Cyrodiil and joined the imperial legion.

Well we know the Dwemer disappeared in 1E 700, so the Falmer would have been in servitude to the Dwemer for some time before that. By the time of ESO in the Second Era the Falmer would have well and truly been twisted, possibly not to the same level that they are by the time of Skyrim, but they certainly wouldn't be the civilised Snow Elves you're looking for.

Any chance of Snow Elves is probably only with any isolated holdouts that might still be around in the Second Era, similar to Chantry of Auriel.

Ok, that's kind of the answer I was looking for. It seems like it would make since that they may blend into/be assimilated into another civilization to escape their onslaught, or hide away from danger in small groups. I do find it a little odd that there is little to no evidence of their existence in any realm or game (even the Mayans, Aztecs and Incas left temples and some structural forms.) If they were ever a true civilized race, and an elvish one at that, wouldn't they have some kind of structure? maybe I just missed it in Skyrim.
