Bound Armor
Bound Armor: Protect yourself with the power of Oblivion, creating a suit of Daedric mail that increases your block mitigation by [33 / 34 / 35 / 36]% for 3 seconds. While slotted, your Max Magicka is increased by 5%
Bound Armaments: Cost: 3240 Stamina.
Protect yourself with the power of Oblivion, creating a suit of Daedric mail that increases your block mitigation by 36% for 3 seconds. While slotted, your Max Stamina is increased by [5 / 6 / 7 / 8]% and light attack damage is increased by 11%.
Bound Aegis: Protect yourself with the power of Oblivion, creating a suit of Daedric mail that increases your block mitigation by 36% for 3 seconds. While slotted, your Max Magicka is increased by [5 / 6 / 7 / 8]% and you gain Minor Ward and Minor Resolve. These increase your Spell Resistance and Physical Resistance.

Bound Armor protects you with magical Daedric armor, which increases your Physical Resistance. The armor remains until you activate the ability again to unsummon it. While active, your Maximum Magicka is increased by 5%. Bound Armaments changes both the casting cost and the maximum stat increase to use Stamina instead, and also increases the damage from your Heavy Attacks, while the Bound Aegis morph adds Spell Resistance.

Notes[edit]

  • Unlike previous games in the series, this spell adds protection in addition to your regular armor, rather than replacing it.
  • Bound armor is not damaged by attacks and will last as long as you leave it on. However, your regular armor will still receive damage if you are attacked or killed while using Bound Armor.
  • Bound Armor must use up one of your action slots in order to work. You cannot cast it and then replace it with another skill or use your weapon swap to free up the slot.
  • Prior to Update 10,[verification needed] this caused your entire visual appearance to change, covering you in Daedric-style armor. Now, you just see a purple smoke around your torso, meaning that two Sorcerers both using this spell are no longer forced to look identical.
  • Bound Aegis is a recommended morph for the Sorcerer Initiate, Elemental Arcanist, War Mage, and Eldritch Mender builds, while Bound Armaments is recommended for Arcane Warrior.
