Abilities in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim are defined by their passive nature. They are magic英語版al effects that increase various stats and values relative to the player.

They are determined by the player's race or obtained by completing quests and tasks throughout the game. Active abilities will appear in the Active Effects list, under Magic.

They are considered separate from Powers英語版 as they do not require activation and are not restricted to once a day use.

Armor abilities編集

The following are special abilities granted when wearing a full set of armor英語版 or a certain piece:

Name Description
Nightingale Armor Full Set Increases armor rating by 25 points if wearing all Nightingale Armor英語版.
Shrouded Armor Full Set Increases armor rating by 25 points if wearing all Shrouded Armor英語版.
Boethiah's Embrace英語版 You are able to move more quietly, and opponents that get too close take 5 points poison damage per second.


Blessings英語版 are passive, temporary buffs that normally last for eight real-time hours of gameplay (as opposed to eight hours of in-game time). They can be obtained by praying at altars, typically located in temples. Only one blessing can be active at a time.

The Temple of the Divines英語版 located in Solitude has all the Nine Divines英語版 shrines available, with the exception of the Shrine of Talos as his worship is currently banned in the Empire. If the Civil War is completed in favor of the Stormcloaks, a Shrine of Talos will be added to the temple in Solitude.

The following is a list of the blessings and locations that can be obtained from altars and temples around Skyrim. Some blessings listed here can only be obtained with the inclusion of Dawnguard and Dragonborn add-ons.
