|The Atronach Stone|
|Location||The stone is located between Windhelm and Riften.|
|Description||Those under the sign of The Atronach absorb a portion of incoming spell damage and have a larger pool of Magicka, but recover it more slowly.|
+50% absorb spells
-50% Magicka regeneration
The stone is located in the volcanic tundra between Windhelm and Riften, just outside the mountain range between the two locations. Near the Eldergleam Sanctuary and Darkwater Crossing, the stone is by the river to the South-East.
The magicka regeneration decrease may appear to be a disadvantage at first, but when combined with the Recovery perks, the drawbacks can be negated, with the added benefit of an extra 50 magicka points and 50% spell absorption.
When combined with the Magic Resistance and the Atronach perks from Alteration and the Elemental Protection perk from Block, it is possible to build a character that is highly resilient to magic. As a Breton, the Dragonskin power will stack with the Atronach Stone, making the player immune to magic for the duration of Dragonskin.
See the Spell Absorption page for more information on obtaining 100% spell absorption.
Also given the way the magic regeneration system works, with the more magicka a character has, the more they gain per second. So with a 50% reduction to magic regeneration, the two ways to counteract this effect is to either get another 50% regeneration effect OR double the magicka capacity.
For another, slightly unorthodox, strategy, this stone can be used by a pure combat character who does not use spells. The slight stunt in magicka is rendered irrelevant, while gaining powerful Spell Absorption. The magicka boost, however, is wasted in this situation.
