Absorb Magic

Cast Time



4320 Stamina

Bolster your defenses, gaining a damage shield that absorbs up to XX damage for 6 seconds. The Damage Shield scales off 30% of your Maximum Health.

While the shild persist, you are healed for 4191 the next time a harmful Direct Damage projectile hits you. This effect can occur once per cast.

This ability scales off your Max Health. 

Projectiles that are absorbed by the damage shield heal you, rather than reflect.


Absorb Magic is a Skill in Elder Scrolls Online (ESO). This Skill is found in the One-Handed and Shield Skills Skill Line and can be unlocked by gaining experience while having a Skill from that Line on your active Skill Bar. Skills can be reset at Rededication Shrines found in the capital cities of each ESO faction, for a tidy sum of gold.
