  • I'm wondering how mages regenerate magicka? Whether it is absorbed from something on nirn or from Aetherius. Any help would be useful books especially!

    • "Spells consume magicka, the essence of magic, when cast. This raw energy flows from Aetherius into Mundus by way of the sun and stars" from the Magic wiki page here, plenty of links on there for you to look around.

    • It's a game.

    • probably for the sake of gameplay, similar how in morrowind your health wouldn't regenerate but in skyrim, it does.

    • I read somewhere the sun and stars are holes ripped into a veil when the last gods retreated from creation, and magical energies flow through the holes onto mundus. The Ayleid wells collected starlight to build up a magicka reserve, i assume mages regenerate their pools with the same energy.

    • Mages probably regenerate magicka because, as it is said, it is power that flow from Aetherius through the lands and the people. Think of it this way, its like an internal store of energy that you can deplete. This internal store feeds off the Magicka that flows from Aetherius and makes it yours. Its kind of like an IV drip from Aetherius.

      This is pure speculation. Magicka might be regenerating chi or strange internal powers that everyone has. Nobody knows

    • easy it regenerates becuase its magic and magic is magic that is magical with lots of magic affects like regeneration

    • madman79 I would say they received the gift of Magnus, and he constantly is adding to this gift? Maybe it's a sort of centurion dynamo core, it is an infinite source of energy, and magnus's gift is an infinite source of magic?

    • It comes from the enviroment, and has origins in the creation of Mundus: - can be reisidual power leaking from magnus' dead corpse when he was destroyed in the creation

      - or that, when magnus realised the was going to die in the process of creation, he tore a hole in the sky to atempt to flee to aetherius. Magicka leaks from aetherius to mundus by this hole: the Sun

      I'm sorry about this it was really smart-arse I personally am very interested in lore and how things work but I guess I was just feeling like a dick that day.

    • Maybe regenerated magic is just recycled magic that you used, I mean you can't truly destroy energies at best you can "reshape" it into something else. So magic doesn't necessarily have to be a one time use thing.

    • Magicka, also known as Creatia, originates from Aetherius. It is used to create. Mundus (and as such, Nirn) is filled with its own magicka and radiates it to some degree. The vast majority of magicka comes from Aetherius. When Magnus and the Magna Ge left creation, they tore holes through Oblivion and into Aetherius. This allowed for large quantities of magicka to flow out through the holes and into Oblivion and especially Mundus. Magicka isn't just the source of magical power, it's the source of life. All beings require it to live. It courses through blood (side note, this is why vampires drink blood). It seeps into plants, animals eat plants, and mortals eat plants and animals. Just as nutrients are transfered through this process on Earth, so too is magicka. Creatures (except vampires) are also able to absorb magicka through their skin to some degree. Sometimes the amounts of magicka that exists within Nirn is enough ot recharge a mage. Sometimes they're so spent that they require direct sunlight.

    • Even though games have different lore, magic is not that different, so Im gonna assume that magicka (or mana) is in every being. Mages that upgrade their magicka allow more of that energy to be stored, allowing them to cast more spells before running out. I think that since mana is seemingly omnipresent except fir special situations, regenerating just means your body is just absorbibg and storing mana, so its a safe bet that stunting it means that magicka is unable to come in in its primordial form.

    • The games don't have different lore. What do you mean by this?

      Creatia and Magicka are not the same thing. Creatia is the raw mythic energy in which is the building material of all existing things, Magicka, on the other hand, is an energy source that is generated from existence.

      Also, what's the source for this?

    • Magicka is just another form of energy, meaning that they would follow the laws of thermodynamics. While I'm not sure if this is credible evidence, the Court Wizard of Whiterun in the game Skyrim may sometimes talk about how "there is a tranquility in magic", and that magicka "is just energy to be harvested".

      We also know that magicka is almost everywhere. Think about alchemy and the effects that they have. To be even more specific, the fact that some ingredients can help regenerate magicka is just flat out proof that they have magicka within them.

      We also know that mages can absorb magicka. Though, the only evidence of this is the atronach constellation/standing stone. and the Skyrim perk under the same name. In order to explain my theory, I'm going to assume that all mages can absorb magicka like with the Atronach constellation/stone/perk, but to a lesser extent.

      So to summarize the above:

      1. Magicka is just another form of energy, and would follow the laws of thermodynamics.

      2. Magicka is found everywhere.

      3. Magicka can be abrosbed.

      My thoery is that when a mage casts a spell, the energy from the spell would revert back to magicka and seep into the environment, and a mage can then absorb the magicka in the environment to replenish their reserves.

      MK is the source for magicka and creatia being the same. The question was asked something like if he could make a cool name for magicka that wasn't so blatantly game oriented, he responded with, "You mean like creatia?" I'm digging to find it, but it might have been on FB. I'll check some other posts and see if I can find it. Creatia is raw energy, yes. So how is this not magicka? Magicka comes to Nirn through the sun. 

      Check out this quote from the Cosmology explanation from yor.

      >"Thus, when one looks at the day sky, they see into the raiments of Aehterius, and stare at magic."

      "stare at magic" Aetherius is the origin of magical energy. Aetherius is where raw creatia is.

      Also, Nu-Mantia Intercept:

      >"The Stones collected "creatia" that came into the Void from Aetherius."

      As for the vampire thing, I should clarify that's speculation. I usually do. This time I forgot.
