For other uses, see Dragonskin.

Dragonskin is a Power found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is the innate racial ability of Bretons.


Dragonskin functions as a passive Spell Absorption ability, absorbing 50% of hostile spells cast at the user and converting them into Magicka. As a greater power, it can only be used once a day.


  • This effect can grant an 80% chance of complete Spell Absorption when combined with passive Atronach perk in the Alteration skill tree, which itself grants 30% absorption.
  • When combined with the Atronach Stone, it will grant 100% spell absorption for the duration of Dragonskin.
