Oblivion:Powers

The UESPWiki – Your source for The Elder Scrolls since 1995
Jump to: navigation, search

This page lists all of the Powers in Oblivion, both Greater and Lesser. Some powers are granted by your race or birthsign; others are received by activating Doomstones, becoming a vampire, or completing certain quests. Greater Powers have no Magicka cost, but can only be used once per day. Lesser Powers may or may not use Magicka, but they can be used as often as you like.

Powers are cast the same way as spells, however, there are several differences between powers and spells, as detailed under the Magic Overview.

  • Unless otherwise noted, all Power effects are cast on Self.
  • A list of Powers gained by the Shivering Isles expansion can be viewed on the Shivering Isles Magic article.
  • Categories listing these powers are available for both Greater Powers and Lesser Powers.
  • Powers do not contribute to skill increases.
