Skill bookEdit

There are no skill books that levels the Restoration Staff skilline in the current game. ZeniMax Online Studios seems to have accidentally set them as Destruction Staff skill books.


  • As of Update 5, Heavy attacks with this weapon type will not reveal you if you have used Shadow Cloak.[1]
  • Update 7: The Shadow Cloak ability, and its morphs, will now correctly cancel an attacker's channel for several abilities, including Heavy Attacks from Restoration Staves.[2]
  • Update 9: Fixed an issue where channeled attacks (such as Radiant Destruction), Restoration and Lightning Staff Heavy Attacks could be avoided by dodge rolling. Channeled attacks cannot be dodged.[3]
