No fantasy game would be complete without
spells and incantations for the player wield. The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim is no exception,
and it has a list of magics and spells with various types of uses, including one of the
basics, healing spells. The school of restoration is the only one
that will always appeal to each play style no matter what.
After all healing and staying alive is the first, and most important thing everyone does
during combat. As you heal, shield, and repel undead though
you’ll need to upgrade your spells, and likely be interested in finding the best restoration
magic in the game. A word of warning though, the best restoration
spells, as odd as it may seem, have next to nothing to do with healing. Like the other four schools of magic, you
must complete a special quest to unlock the master restoration spells.
To start the Restoration Ritual Spell quest you first need a restoration skill of at least
ninety. Obviously reaching this level of proficiency
can take some time, but once you do so you need to head to the college of Winterhold.
Once there you need to find and speak with Colette Marence about learning more about
restoration. After talking to her she will redirect you
to the Auger of Dunlain who resides in the Midden beneath the college.
Before you can do this though there’s a catch. You have to have completed the mages guild
quest “Good Intentions”, which has you summoning the Auger for different purposes.
It’s impossible to talk to him otherwise, and even then it’s possible that you may not
beable to speak with him again until after you complete the college quests.
Anyways once you Speak with the Auger of Dunlain he will tell you to step into the light for
a test. When you do so all of your equipment will
be removed, and you will be attacked by three ghosts.
You can’t attack or fight back, because the purpose of this test is simply to survive
using restoration spells. You can heal, repel the undead, or use wards
to keep yourself alive while the test proceeds. It’s also possible to use the become ethereal
shout to get through much of the trial as well.
No matter how you go about staying alive, once the test is complete you’ll get all of
your items back, and the Drauger will also give you the Master Restoration spell “Bane
of the Undead”. In addition, if you return to Colette Marence
she will now sell the other Master Restoration Spell, Guardian Circle.
There is a tiny bug worth mentioning though. Occasionally Colette will not sell the Guardian
Circle spell. In order to fix this Speak with the auger
again and when he begins saying “you are worthy” start clicking him over and over to skip the
dialogue. It’s not clear why, but doing this will usually
get the spell to appear in Colett’s inventory. Restoration magic is a bit short on master
spells with only two available, but that doens’t mean they’re short on power.
If you still need convincing, then listen to what the master spells do.
The first is Bane of the undead, which is the most powerful spell that forces undead
enemies to flee. However, this spell has a host of additional
effects. All undead up to level thirty will flee for
thirty seconds when hit with this spell, but they will also be staggered, and set on fire.
Pretty powerful compared to the preceding similar spells right?
The second spell is Guardian Circle. Similar to the circle of Protection spell,
the guardian circle is much more powerful. After being placed on the ground it lasts
for sixty seconds. Any undead up to level thirty-five that enters
it will flee, and as long as you stay within it’s confines, you will recover twenty points
of health every second. No matter the class you play, or the techniques
you use restoration magic will always be useful. Even though the Mater spells for restoration
lave limited use for some types of play styles, they’re still valuable and powerful.
No matter if the top tier of this magic school interests you or not, thanks for watching.
