Skyrim:Blessings

The UESPWiki – Your source for The Elder Scrolls since 1995
Jump to: navigation, search

This page documents the blessings that you can receive, typically by activating altars in temples. These are short-term blessings which act separately from long-term Standing Stone effects, and do not overwrite or interact with them. Typically, you will want any blessings you come across, unless you are specifically trying to bolster one effect.

[edit] Shrine Blessings

Blessings are bestowed by praying at (activating) a shrine to the specified deity.

You can only have one shrine blessing at a time. If you choose to pray at a second shrine, it will overwrite the previous blessing.

^1 The description of this blessing is misleading; the actual effect is that Restoration spells cost 10% less magicka to cast.
^2 The details of the Blessing of Talos are bugged when viewed in-game. The magnitude is displayed as "0%" (truncated from 0.2). Nevertheless, the blessing does still have an effect.
