Ayleid Wells (or Aetherial Wells on Auridon) are reservoirs of magical power cast from meteoric iron, often found near Ayleid ruins. Activating a well will draw power from it, in the form of a ten minute health buff called Ayleid Health Bonus.
All Ayleid Wells have a cooldown period after being activated. In regular zones, the Wells are instanced for each player, meaning the only person capable of draining the Well is you. In Cyrodiil however, Ayleid Wells are not player-specific, meaning the cooldown applies to everyone.[verification needed]
