Skyrim – Master Restoration Guide

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.

  1. Best Skyrim videos on YouTube. They're informative and very professional. I like how you don't beg for likes and subs as well.

  2. Are you out of luck if you finished the college quest-line and Collette has died beforehand?

  3. hmmm… the voice is soo soothing 😉 makes me want to relax and sleep…

  4. Don't get hit .
    you then don't need to heal ( potions and/or magic ).
    I can do it .
    why can't everyone else .

  5. 1. Get high magic absorb (Alteration + Atronoch Stone (+maybe be a Breton))
    2. Cast Guardian Circle if low on Mana
    3. ???
    4. Profit

  6. Of corse Restoration is a legitimate school of magic! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise!

  7. R E S T O R A T I O N I S A P E R F E C T L Y V A L I D S C H O O L O F M A G I C, A N D D O N' T L E T A N Y O N E T E L L Y O U O T H E R W I S E

  8. I'm playing on XB1 and no matter how many times I try she only sells the circle of protection not the guardian circle

  9. Magic + Magic is still magic.

    Yes, and two+three is four because they are both equal.
    This spell, (points to shining red spell in my right hand) will make you crazy and attack everything, and this spell (Points to greenish blue spell) will calm you. Are they equal?
    If I combine a ward spell with a restoration spell I am invincible. Is that just "Magic+magic"?

    As you can tell I have no life and I care significantly about a line from a make believe cat.

  10. Dear Math im tired of figuring out ur problems. I think its time 4 u to grow up and solve ur own

  11. All the Guards in Skyrim say something like this, "I have a lot of respect for the Restoration School.

  12. "What does it mean to combine magic? Magic + Magic is still Magic."

    And that would be the only quote i will live by.

  13. Ethereal is not pronounced "Ee-ther-al"
    It's "eth-eer-ee-al" or "eth-er-real"

  14. I’m new to this game after finding it in the bargain bin at GameStop (4 for $10) and love the quality and information presented in your villages!

  15. I've always stayed clear of the turn undead and fear spells because being level based I never know if the enemy I'm targeting will be affected or not and with the way everything scales with the player chances are unless I'm specializing in using those spells they won't work the majority of the time, meaning I just waste time and mana.

  16. I just went through three of these videos, destruction, alteration, and then restoration. If you lay down a circle, cast dragonhide, and shoot lightning storm, you're protected. Also, if you have any magic absorption, you'll get magicka every now and then.

  17. Restoration is a perfectly valid school of magic. And don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

  18. Good video except some of the things you say are ripped right out of your destruction video. Lacks originality therefore I leave a dislike until you figure out a solution

  19. Could you please do fallout 3 or fallout New Vegas tips or builds i really like your videos XD

  20. Taking care of Most "undead" enemies will be way too easy by the time you reach LVL 90 in restoration…

  21. So, Colette for me has gone missing, is there anyway I can do the master restoration ritual quest, or at least get these Master Spells?

  22. so i had to do it again lucky me i saved b4 i did the mission but he started spamming me with u are worthy now she is sellin 16 guardian circle books .-. lol

  23. I’ve always thought dead thrall was the best restoration spell as you know, you bring someone back from the dead

  24. Pro efficiency? you mean proficiency.
    otherwise, great video

  25. Hold on, that opening line from M'aiq is in regards to the trivialized magic system of Skyrim compared to the more customizable system of Oblivion, right? Is Bethesda actually acknowledging that they dumbed down the system??

  26. I fail to understand these stats. Example: Circle of Protection. Level Expert. Up to Level 20 undead. By the time I get this power I am level 50 plus. Isn't this power a pre useless piece of crap already? Much like many other powers that are limited by low level stats are pretty much all crap. Wouldn't it make more sense that a master would be up to lvl 100 and lvl Adapt would be level 60 or something like that, not freaking up to level 14 cap. Am I the only one that see's this and thinks, WTF?

  27. Honestly, I think that the master Restoration spells aren't really worth it. It's better to just use the expert spells instead of wasting time and most likely perks on useless spells to make undead flee. It might be worth it only if you're roleplaying, but besides that, just stick with the expert spells.

  28. Guardian circle is such a powerful spell in boss fights.
    Sad that there is a bug that you can't get it.

  29. restoration quest seems like best quest for master skills

    in terms of unique I think only 3 other things are like it

  30. "Restoration is a perfectly valid school of magic just don't go healing any monsters after conjuring me a bed and enchanting my dull blade that can barely cut butter"
    -assorted people

  31. Does using the guardian circle spell while having an absorb magicka active effect on you actually refuel your magicka bar?

  32. This school of magic is for Undead/Vampire hunters to master.

  33. I have a lot of respect of restoration school , skyrim could use more healers

  34. Collet, guardian circle, it’s a Easter egg to the tales of series!!!

  35. He told me that I was worthy about 30 time's.lol & she had 28 copies of the book.
