|Circle of Protection|
|Skill Level||Expert (75)|
|Effect||Undead up to level 20 entering the circle will flee.|
This spell interacts with spell absorption effects causing the Dragonborn to regenerate considerable amounts of Magicka while standing inside the circle. This interaction essentially turns the spell into a very powerful Magicka well.

- The mana well effect gained from combining Circle of Protection with spell absorption will be lost when the player is caught in the radius of their own explosive spells. Such spells are not restricted to Destruction (e.g. Fireball, Fire Storm, etc.). Most Master-level spells of whatever school (e.g. Bane of the Undead, Mass Paralysis) as well as some lower-level spells such as Rally will destroy the effect. Spells such as Fireball and Rally can be cast without interrupting the mana well effect so long as the caster is not caught in the spell's radius.
- A confirmed solution is to receive explosive damage from an external source. One readily repeatable means of doing so is to summon a Storm Atronach, wait until it performs its explosive attack on the player, then destroy or banish it. The spell absorption from Circle of Protection will return indefinitely unless it is interrupted again by the player's own explosive effects. This solution can also be applied indefinitely.
