Miraak's Robes

Miraak's Robes are a set of robes worn by Miraak. They can be obtained after defeating Miraak during At the Summit of Apocrypha. Its enchantment gives you fifteen percent spell absorption and has a chance to deal poison damage to an attacker when the wearer is hit. Equipping Miraak's Boots and/or Miraak's Gloves will increase the spell absorption enchantment by 5% each, for a total of 25% spell absorption.

The Tentacle ExplosionEdit

Whenever the wearer of Miraak's Robes is hit by any physical hits, magical attacks (including shouts) or traps, there is a small chance that tentacles will spawn out of the ground and surround the wearer. There is a very high chance those tentacles will explode. When they do, they stagger and deal 100 poison damage to everything in their AoE radius which is about the same as a basic cloak spell.

Even though the Tentacle Explosion's damage is classified as poison damage, it is not affected by Weakness to Poison, but by Weakness to Magic.


  • With this item and either Miraak's boots or gloves equipped, the Atronach Stone power and the Atronach Alteration perk, it is possible to achieve 100% spell absorption. The Tentacle Explosion will still trigger from spells and spell effects even if you have 100% spell absorption.
  • A separate version of the robes (xx039151) with a similar enchantment to the Archmage's Robes is worn by Miraak during the first Black Book cutscene. It is unobtainable without the use of glitches.


  • When wearing these robes, there is a chance that the tentacle explosion will occur if you transform into a Vampire Lord.DG
  • When wearing these robes, there is a chance that the tentacle explosion will occur if you use the lesser power Bardic Knowledge.DB
