For other uses, see Woad.

Woad is a Nord racial power in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind that creates a magical shield around the caster's entire body increasing their armor rating.


  • Shield – 30 points for 60 seconds on self.


  • As with all powers, it has no Magicka cost and never fails, but can only be used once per day (game time).
  • It is likely that this ability is named after the plant called Woad, which is used to make a blue pigment in a paint that the Celts and Vikings wore in real life. They believed it made them more powerful in a manner similar to how this ability functions.
