Archmage Robes

Concept art of Archmage's Robes

Visually it resembles a poncho in the shape of a triangle, draped across the front of the body. The hood is fixed to the robes and cannot be removed, thus only circlets and masks can be worn on the head while wearing these robes.


Archmage's Robes offers a 15% reduction on all spells cast, +50 Magicka and +100% Magicka regeneration.

These are the highest all-around enchantments available for magic-oriented characters. Regular enchanted robes or armor do not reach the height of these attributes, nor do they equal the combined enchantments it provides. However, each individual enchantment on the robes are out-ranked by expert and master robes for those specialized in one school of magic (e.g. Master Robes of Destruction).


These robes are awarded upon completion of The Eye of Magnus, along with a key to the Arch-Mage's Quarters.


  • Some headpieces count as circlets despite not being explicitly named as such, like the Aetherial Crown or the Ancient Falmer Crown, and can be worn with these robes.
  • In the Hall of Valor, an unnamed Hero of Sovngarde wears these robes.
  • There is an unhooded version of these robes in the game data, but only obtainable through the console. While nearly identical in stats to the normally obtained robes, the lack of a hood removes the +50 Magicka enchant. Its formID is  0007C932
  • When these robes are worn, J'zargo may comment: "Are the Arch-Mage's robes as comfortable as J'zargo believes them to be?"

Duplication exploitEdit

When Ancano is defeated in the quest The Eye of Magnus, if the Dragonborn talks to Tolfdir there is the dialogue option, "...". When this option is chosen, he will congratulate and give the Dragonborn the Archmage's Robes and then the chat will be gone, after which he will offer his congratulations again and another robe will be given.


This section contains bugs related to Archmage's Robes. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Confirm all bugs with other editors on the talk page before adding them below.
  2. Always try reloading an old save first, before asking for assistance.
  3. Do not discuss possible bug fixes or origins. Leave those and all other first-person-anecdotes on the talk page, not the article.
  4. Always add  360  ,  PS3  , or  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
  • These robes can be duplicated by placing them on the right-mannequin in Proudspire, exiting the manor, re-entering, and removing the robes.
  •  PC   360   While wearing the robes, Dragon Priest masks (such as Morokei and the Wooden Mask) might make the player's head invisible, to solve this, drop the robes and pick them up.
  •  PC   360   PS3 Also, when worn with Thalmor Boots, or certain other footwear, the leg joints between the boot and the robe become invisible similar to any of the Dragon Priest Masks. Thieves Guild Boots,Nightingale Boots and Elven Boots produce similar cosmetic malfunctions.
  •  360   Sometimes, when entering a new cell, the effects of the robes disable, and can only be fixed by reloading a previous save.
  •  360   You may receive three robes when given to you by Tolfdir.
  • When equipping any hoods while wearing the Archmage's robes (which will normally automatically unequip the robes), and then take the hood back off, the Archmage's robes' hood will stay on with whatever torso, arms and legs equipment worn, despite the fact that the Robes are still unequipped.
  • When receiving the robes from Tofdir, you may be given two robes as well as two Arch-Mage Quarter keys.
