Necromage (Perk)
All spells are more effective against undead.
Restoration 70

Necromage is a perk that becomes available when level 70 in the Restoration skill is reached.


The benefit is a 25% strength increase and 50% duration increase to all spells against undead.

Becoming a vampire will flag your character as undead and thus certain spells, shouts and enchantments will increase in potency. Negative effects will also be affected however, such as Weakness to Fire. Some perks are also affected if chosen after obtaining the Necromage perk.

Affected spells and perksEdit

  • All enchantments placed on clothing/armor increase by 25% in magnitude.
  • Dead Thrall: Increase the maximum level deceased vampire targets can be raised past 50.
  • The Ritual Stone: Increase the maximum level deceased targets can be raised past 75.
  • Atronach: Increase spell absorption chance from 30% to 37.5%.
  • Snakeblood: Increase poison resistance from 50% to 62.5%

  • Shielding spells (e.g. without Alteration perks, Ebonyflesh provides 125 armor instead of 100, and lasts for 90 seconds instead of 60).
    • This effect is multiplicative when combined with the Mage Armor perk (e.g. the 125 armor from Ebonyflesh would become 250 at the first level of the Mage Armor perk); the extended duration also stacks with Alteration perk Stability (additional 50% duration for a total of 120 seconds). Effects on Dragonhide unknown.
