Bardic Knowledge is a lesser power found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn. Unlike other powers, it's not restricted to once a day use.


It is one of three possible powers gained from the quest "Black Book: Untold Legends."


"Summons a spectral drum that plays for 300 seconds, improving Stamina Regen for you and nearby allies."

When activated, a floating spectral drum is summoned that emits musical notes. It grants the following bonus as long as it's active:


  • This power is useful for vampire characters, due to their lack of stamina regeneration when in sunlight. When combined with the Wind Walker Light Armor perk, a vampire will have normal stamina regeneration in sunlight.
  • It is also helpful for countering the Damage Stamina Regeneration effect from Necromancer Amulet, albeit only increased it by 25%.
  • It can help maintain the Breath of Nchuak ability produced by the Visage of Mzund.
