This page lists all of the powers, both greater and lesser, in the Dragonborn expansion, as well as all of the abilities available to you. Powers and abilities are special magical capabilities that are innate to your character. Some are received by completing certain quests, or by activating All-Maker Stones. Greater powers have no magicka cost, but can only be used once per day. Lesser Powers may or may not use magicka, but they can be used as often as you like. Abilities are magical effects that are permanently active.

Dragon shouts are listed on a separate page.

[edit] Greater Powers

Your available greater and lesser powers are listed in the magic menu under "Powers". To use a power you must first equip it, which assigns it to the Dragon Shout/Power button. Each greater power can only be used once per game day.

[edit] Abilities

Abilities are constant-effect characteristics, which are listed in the magic menu under "Active Effects" (along with enchantments, diseases, and other active effects). Some of these abilities are gained from reading Hermaeus Mora's Black Books and completing the associated quests. Only one ability can be selected at a time, per book.

Blessings are similar to abilities, but are listed on a separate page.

Name Spell ID Description Notes

xx01c067
Records memories of your experiences for Neloth. Acquired during the quest Briarheart Necropsy
Scholar's Insight xx01e7ef Reading Skill Books gives you an extra Skill Point. Acquired from the Black Book The Winds of Change
  • Note that while books you have not read grant you two skill points, books you have already read will not grant you an extra skill point if you read them again, so you'll get the most benefit from this if you get it fairly early in the game (or you've just been ignoring skill books until now).
  • This ability suffers the same rare bug mentioned on the Skill Books page, causing the skill to increase by only one instead of two points.
Seeker of Might xx034834 Combat skills are all 10% more effective. Acquired from the Black Book The Sallow Regent
Seeker of Shadows xx034838 Stealth skills are all 10% more effective. Acquired from the Black Book The Sallow Regent
Seeker of Sorcery xx034837 All spells cost 10% less magicka. Enchantments are 10% more powerful. Acquired from the Black Book The Sallow Regent
  • The magicka cost reduction is applied after any Fortify Magic School enchantments from items.

[edit] Bugs

  • The Seeker of Shadows reward from The Sallow Regent only gives a 9% bonus to prices instead of the listed 10%.
  • In rare instances, the Scholar's Insight reward will fail to work, and you will only receive the usual one point from the skill book.
    • Hold off on reading the book until you've advanced a level in that skill.
  • The Secret of Arcana power lasts indefinitely as long as a single concentration spell (without the relevant Dual Casting perks) or any combination of concentration spells is dual-cast.
    • This can be used to cast the Master level Destruction spell Lightning Storm indefinitely with no magicka cost.
  • Certain shouts may continue to damage followers even with the Companion's Insight ability.
  • Mora's Boon restores 1000 points to each ability, which may not "fully restore" abilities for high-level characters.
  • Wearing more than four relics of Ahzidal won't grant the Ahzidal's Genius bonus.
    • Wearing exactly four of the relics will re-activate the effect.
  • If Ahzidal's Genius is active when acquiring Seeker of Sorcery, Seeker of Sorcery will not give you a 10% enchanting bonus. ?
