Restoration | Skills

In this TES V: Skyrim World Atlas page, we will discuss Restoration skills that are related to the magician archetype (different areas of magic). Our guide not only describes the skills but also provides tips on how to develop them and what related best features are worth unlocking.

To increase the Restoration skill, you must cast spells from the restoration school of magic. The skill growth will occur only if a spell has achieved its result. Mostly, it’s about successfully healing/protecting the main character and/or his allies. However, some of the spells are about changing the behavior of the undead, and in those situations, the growth will take place only if a spell has influenced at least one monster.

The primary purpose of developing the Restoration skill is to lower the mana costs of casting restoration spells. There are 13 available perks, with Regeneration, Recovery, and Avoid Death being the best perks.

Comments:

  1. Restoration has one thing in common with other schools of magic. Casting even the basic spells from this school can quickly drain your mana bar. Additionally, some of the more advanced spells may require more mana points than the main character has at the moment, so they may be blocked at the beginning of the game. Therefore, you must continually work on increasing the mana pool and improving mana regeneration rate.
  2. Most of the restoration spells are about healing the main character and the rest of his team. Protection spells are a nice addition because they may temporarily increase armor rating or help in decreasing the strength of enemy magic attacks. There are also a few spells about driving off the undead, which may come in handy in certain battles.
  3. Most of the perks described below improve the healing process. However, some of them are also about regenerating mana and stamina. You shouldn’t ignore them, especially if your character doesn’t specialize only in magic.

RESPITE

Requirements: Restoration skill increased to at least 40 points. Unlocked Novice Restoration perk.

Description: Casting a healing restoration spell also regenerates stamina.

REGENERATION

Requirements: Restoration skill increased to at least 20 points. Unlocked Novice Restoration perk.

NECROMAGE

Requirements: Increase Restoration skill to at least 70 points and unlock Regeneration perk.

EXPERT RESTORATION

Requirements: Increase Restoration skill to at least 75 points and unlock Adept Restoration perk.

Description: Cast expert restoration spells at half the mana cost.

Comments: Unlock this perk as soon as possible because it includes a spell that heals the main character’s allies at the same time.

Requirements (rank 2): Increase Restoration skill to at least 60 points.

Description (rank 1): Improves mana regeneration rate by 25%.

Description (rank 2): Improves mana regeneration rate by a total of 50%.

Opinions: Both benefits are valuable options that come with this skill group. It’s important to unlock them as soon as possible, since having a fast mana regeneration rate is crucial even if your character isn’t a full mage.

PREVENT DEATH

Requirements: Restoration skill level must be at least 90 points. Recovery perk (rank 1) must be unlocked.

Description: The ability to automatically recover 250 health points if the main character’s health drops below 10% (can only occur once a day).

Reviews: This perk is extremely beneficial, especially if you don’t constantly monitor the main character’s health bar or if you don’t want to risk sudden death when facing much stronger opponents. The additional advantages of this perk are that it’s fully automated and doesn’t require any mana or potions to work.

RESTORATION DUAL CASTING

Requirements: Restoration skill level must be at least 20 points. Novice Restoration perk must be unlocked.

Description: The ability to cast restoration spells in both hands, which enhances their effectiveness (number of health points regained, duration, etc).

Reviews: It’s not recommended to unlock this perk. The primary reason is that the restoration school is mainly based on defensive spells, so if both hands are occupied, you won’t be able to defend yourself. The only exception is if you have a strong team (normal follower and magical companions) capable of distracting enemy units from the main character.

FAQ

1. What is restoration?

Restoration is the process of repairing, renovating, or improving something to its original condition. It is a skilled trade that involves the use of various tools and techniques to bring an object or structure back to its former glory. Restoration can involve repairing damaged or worn components, replacing missing parts, and refinishing surfaces to match the original appearance. It requires a high level of attention to detail and a deep understanding of the materials and techniques used in the original construction or production of the item.

2. What skills are required for restoration work?

Restoration work requires a range of skills, including carpentry, metalworking, painting, and upholstery. A strong knowledge of materials, such as wood, metal, and textiles, is also essential. Attention to detail, patience, and problem-solving skills are also important traits for restoration professionals. In addition, the ability to work with precision tools and machinery, as well as the ability to read and interpret technical drawings and schematics, is necessary for successful restoration work.

3. What types of objects can be restored?

Almost any type of object can be restored, from antique furniture and musical instruments to historic buildings and vehicles.

Apprenticeships, internships, and on-the-job training can provide valuable hands-on experience and help develop the skills needed for a career in restoration.

Restoration work is important for preserving and maintaining our cultural heritage. By restoring historic buildings, artifacts, and other objects, we are able to learn from and appreciate the past while ensuring that it will be available for future generations. Restoration work can also be environmentally sustainable, as it often involves repairing and reusing existing materials rather than replacing them with new ones. In addition, restoration work can be a rewarding career path for those who are passionate about preserving the past and maintaining the beauty and integrity of our cultural heritage.
