For other uses, see Witbane.

Witbane is a disease that can be contracted while fighting Ice Wraiths and Sabre Cats. It can also sometimes be gained through constant damage from traps.

This disease cripples a mage's Magicka regeneration, resulting in a very deadly weakness for those who rely solely on spells during combat.


  • -50% magicka regeneration
