Black Mage Robes are an item of enchanted clothing in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Identical in appearance to Black Robes, Black Mage Robes have an enchantment that allows 50% faster Magicka regeneration. Black Mage Robes have no attached hood, allowing them to be worn with circlets, helmets, or Dragon Priest Masks. Because robes are not considered armor, these robes allow the Alteration perk "Mage Armor" to be used.


Black Mages Robes can be disenchanted for the Regenerate Magicka effect.

  • The game might crash to desktop without error when looting the robes from a corpse. Though this only happens with some people and on certain corpses only. If you start the game up after the crash and try to loot it again from the same corpse the game still crashes, forcing you to leave the robes be.
