|Artifact: Miraak's Robes (xx039d1e)
Miraak's Robes are a set of robes worn by Miraak. They can be obtained after defeating Miraak during At the Summit of Apocrypha. Its enchantment gives you fifteen percent spell absorption and has a chance to deal poison damage to an attacker when the wearer is hit. Equipping Miraak's Boots and/or Miraak's Gloves will increase the spell absorption enchantment by 5% each, for a total of 25% spell absorption.
The Tentacle Explosion
Whenever the wearer of Miraak's Robes is hit by any physical hits, magical attacks (including shouts) or traps, there is a small chance that tentacles will spawn out of the ground and surround the wearer. There is a very high chance those tentacles will explode. When they do, they stagger and deal 100 poison damage to everything in their AoE radius which is about the same as a basic cloak spell.
Even though the Tentacle Explosion's damage is classified as poison damage, it is not affected by Weakness to Poison - Poisons. Instead its magnitude can be increased by Weakness to Magic - Poisons.
- With this item and either Miraak's boots or gloves equipped, the Atronach Stone power and the Atronach alteration perk, it is possible to achieve 100% spell absorption. The Tentacle explosion will still trigger from spells and spelleffects, even if the player does have 100% spell absorption.
- A separate version of the robes with a similar enchantment to the Arch-Mage's Robes exists in the game-data but is unobtainable.
