For other uses, see Witbane.

Witbane is a disease that can be contracted while fighting Ice Wraiths and Sabre Cats. It can also sometimes be gained through constant damage from traps.

This disease can cripple a mage and give other NPCs the chance to move up and attack while the Mage is waiting for their Magicka to regenerate. If your play style is that of a mage it is best to have this disease cured as quickly as possible.


  • -50% magicka regeneration


  • Using any potion that has the Cure Disease effect.
  • Becoming a Werewolf (note: this also makes you immune and if you have already cured yourself of Lycanthropy then this cure will not be possible).
  • The Mask of Hevnoraak.
  • Accepting a blessing at a shrine.
