Poison Rune is a Restoration spell found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn.

Location[edit | edit source]

This spell can be bought from Talvas Fathryon in Tel Mithryn. He does not always have it available.

Usefulness[edit | edit source]

  • The poison effect of the rune stacks just like fire damage, and can be combined with the Ebony Mail, Miraak's Staff (self inflicted stagger can be countered with the Tower of Strength perk and Force Without Effort meditation) and Mora's Agony. For enemies with significant magic resistance or armor, the combination can be devastating due to bypassing their greatest defenses. However, if up against poison resistant foes (e.g. undead, automatons, Redguards, Bosmer) the effect will be much weaker, or completely useless.
