ObjectivesEdit

  • Gain the Augur's approval

WalkthroughEdit

Speak with Colette Marence in the College of Winterhold with a Restoration skill of 90+ and the quest "Good Intentions" completed to begin the quest. Colette can usually be found in The Arcanaeum or the Hall of Countenance. She tells the Dragonborn to go to The Midden and talk to the Augur of Dunlain.

After speaking with the Augur, the Dragonborn is stripped of all weapons, armor, and potions except quest items, leaving behind only the ability to use spells, powers, and dragon shouts. Afterward, the Dragonborn is attacked by three ghosts: one using Flames, one using Frostbite, and one using Sparks. Through the use of healing spells and wards, the Dragonborn must survive the attacks. Eventually, the Augur intervenes and the quest is complete.

TipsEdit

  • If any followers are present, they will retain all of their inventory and engage in combat with the ghosts. If nothing else, this will likely draw their attention, making the quest much easier.
  • If the Dragonborn goes into sneak mode and remains unseen, two of the ghosts will eventually disappear. Engage the final remaining ghost for a much easier trial. Invisibility is an alternative for low-Sneak characters.
  • The Alteration perk Atronach, all three ranks of Magic Resistance, and the Atronach standing stone will make the Dragonborn virtually immune to the spells of all three spirits. Due to the high Magicka absorption rate of this method, should damage become significant, there should be no shortage of Magicka for healing.

ConclusionEdit

Bane of the undead

The Bane of the Undead spell, shown in the magic menu.

The spell Bane of the Undead will be added directly to the Dragonborn's spell list upon completing the Augur's challenge. Afterward, the other Master Restoration spell, Guardian Circle, will be available as a Spell Tome for purchase from Colette Marence.

BugsEdit

This section contains bugs related to Restoration Ritual Spell. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  ,  PS3  ,  PC  .
  3. If a fix to the bug is known, please provide it, but avoid use of first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board and not the article.

  • Sometimes, when the quest is finished, Colette Marence doesn't sell the Guardian Circle spell tome. Casting Bane of the Undead immediately after receiving it from the Augur may fix this.
    • (PC Only) If the above does not work, you can reinitiate the quest by opening the console and typing setstage cd987 10 then returning to the Auger's chamber and surviving the ghosts again (this time only one, you have all your equipment, and for much shorter time) and the Auger will grant you worthy once again, completing the quest. Save, see Colette again, and she should have the tome. If not, reload and try the above option then speak with her.
  • It is possible for multiple books to become purchasable. When fighting with the ghosts, repeatedly attempt to talk to the Augur of Dunlain right before and after they disappear. If this is done quickly enough, multiple Guardian Circle tomes will become available for sale to the player. Sometimes, the game may glitch and make the Augur repeat the acceptance line, achieving the same effect. To stop hearing the dialogue repeated constantly, leave the room and it should stop, but the animation will still follow (confirmed on 360 and PS3, unconfirmed on PC).
  • The Augur may delay in taking the Dragonborn's equipment. In some cases, it never will, and an earlier save must be loaded.
  • The game may freeze when trying to "step into the light" when the Augur commands. This may be solved by dropping ALL inventory items manually.
  • Sometimes when bringing followers, one ghost will remain to attack them and the ghost can't die. This can be fixed by leaving the midden dark.
  • On rare instances, the third ghost will not spawn, causing the quest to be stuck and reloading is the only solution
  • Due to a bug in the quest script, the ritual unlocks the sale of the Alteration mastery books instead of Restoration. Therefore, the tome of Guardian Circle available directly after the quest, which is added to her inventory separately, is the only one available, and once Colette's merchant inventory resets, the spell can no longer be acquired without console commands.
  •  PS3   Sometimes after stepping into the light, the ghosts won't appear. Dropping all inventory items manually (by placing them in nearby corpse if available) and mashing X repeatedly by talking to Augur may fix this.

    • Why is there not a Master level healing spell tome? I think it's really weird that there isn't one.
