The Atronach Stone is one of the thirteen Standing Stones scattered across Skyrim.

The Atronach Stone when it's activated

The stone adds a passive power that increases magicka by 50 points and adds 50% spell absorption, but decreases magicka regeneration by 50%.

Activating the stone will present the message:

"Those under the sign of The Atronach absorb a portion of incoming spell damage and have a larger pool of Magicka, but recover it more slowly."

The Atronach Stone[edit]

The stone is located almost due south of Bonestrewn Crest, east-northeast of Darkwater Crossing in the southern-most part of the hot springs. It is found at the top of a mound with several other stones jutting out at an angle around it, surrounded by roiling volcanic pools. At its base is a steaming, shallow pool where a couple of jazbay grape plants are growing. Other nearby vegetation that can be harvested include some dragon's tongue plants and creep clusters.


  • One corundum ore vein is located northeast of the Atronach Stone.
  • With enough Magicka regeneration buffs, this Stone's penalty is minimal considering that Magicka regeneration is additive and also influenced by total Magicka. If your character's total Magicka is low and Magicka regeneration high, this Stone might actually increase your Magicka regeneration.
