Dragonskin is a greater power possessed by all Bretons. The power actually gives a 50% chance to fully block a hostile spell, and gaining magicka equal to the base cost of the spell, the same as any other method of spell absorption.


  • Without the Dragonborn add-on, only a Breton can gain temporary 100% spell absorption without resorting to minor exploitation of how Standing Stone powers are implemented, specifically the Atronach Stone.
  • Dragonskin will not absorb magicka from spells deflected by wards.
