Skyrim robes


This page describes the mundane (non-magical) clothing items in Skyrim. Generic Magic Apparel details most magical clothing with the rest found at Specialty Gear; the category Skyrim-Clothing provides lists of all the individual pieces of clothing in the game. Clothing items do not provide any armor; wearing them doesn't improve the armor rating.


These cover both your upper and lower body, and cannot be worn along with primary armor.

These cover both your upper and lower body, and cannot be worn along with primary armor.


These cover your head, and cannot be worn along with any helmet.


Includes all non-armor versions of boots. These go on your feet and cannot be worn with armored boots.


These go on your hands and cannot be worn along with gauntlets or bracers.


All of the following rings (except the Bone Hawk Ring) can be crafted at forges; the linked pages provide details on the materials necessary to craft the items.

You may wear only one ring at a time. The ring will be visible on your character's right pointer finger as long as you are not wearing certain types of gauntlets.


All of the following amulets can be crafted at forges; the linked pages provide details on the materials necessary to craft the items.

You may wear only one amulet or necklace at a time. The necklace will be visible if you are wearing certain types of clothing or armor.


When worn, circlets (including all enchanted circlets) occupy a special "circlet" body part slot. Most helmets and other headgear occupy both the "circlet" and "hair" body part slots; meaning that, in general, circlets cannot be worn with any other headgear. Similarly, most hooded robes occupy both the "circlet" and "hair" body part slots in addition to the "body" part slot. However, there are a handful of bugged items that occupy only the "hair" and not the "circlet" body part slot, allowing them to be worn simultaneously with any circlet:

The Aetherial CrownDG, Wedding Wreath, and all Dragon Priest Masks occupy only the "circlet" body part slot, and can therefore also be worn simultaneously with any of the aforementioned bugged items. Note that wearing two pieces of armored headgear, even if both are the same weight, negates the armor bonuses from the Well Fitted and Custom Fit perks. Various bugs that allow multiple head items to be equipped are fixed by the Unofficial Skyrim Patch.

Unlike rings and amulets, circlets cannot be made by the player at forges.


  • Unlike in previous Elder Scrolls games, shirts, pants, and skirts are mixed together into a single "Clothes" item to optimize gameplay. It allows more NPCs to be in one place at the same time and reduces the chances of clothing glitches, mislabels, and errors.
  • Additional clothing, which cannot normally be obtained and/or used by the player, is listed at Unobtainable Items.

Skyrim: The 8 Best Robes And How To Find Them

Mage Robes within the Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is perfect if you are the type to wield fireballs at bandits and you want to look awesome while doing it. They may not be as flashy as Dragonscale armor, nor do they offer any kind of protection, but mage robes still have a lot to offer.

With plenty of magic-related perks, including helping your magika regenerate faster, robes are the preference armor if you want to play as a mage character. Mage Robes can be found all over Skyrim and have many different perks and styles for you to choose from.

8 Thalmor Robes

Thalmor robes can be seen worn by obnoxious Thalmor agents. While they only offer a 12 percent reduction on the casting of destruction spells, this can be extremely useful to those who have not invested within the destruction skill tree.

One unique thing about Thalmor Robes is the protection they offer an Altmer character during the questline Diplomatic Immunity. The robes can be found on a table within the Embassy during the quest and if you are a high elf and you put the robes on, you can walk past the guards without having to fight them.

  • You can dress like a Thalmor Wizards either by taking robes during the main questline or you can take them by force from Thalmor agents you encounter in Skyrim.

7 Cultist Robes

Cultist Robes are the choice apparel for the cultists of the Dragonborn DLC and come in handy for those who find their magika reserves depleting too quickly. The cultists are the followers of the Dragon priest Miraak and prefer to wear these robes when trying to kill you and enslave the entire island of Solstheim.

The robes give you 75 percent faster magika regeneration but offer no spell cost reduction which means you will still need to carefully monitor your magika when flinging spells at enemies. If you are having problems finding Adept Cutlitists, however, you can get Telvanni Robes from Neloth after completing the Quest Old Friends. Keep in mind you will need the Dragonborn DLC for these robes, as well.

  • You can find these robes at the start of the Dragonborn DLC when two cultists attempt to kill you. This occurs either after you visit High Hrothgar for the first time.

6 Mythic Dawn Robes

The Mythic Dawn cult may be more closely related to the Elder Scrolls Oblivion than Skyrim, but you can still wear their robes 200 years after their attempted takeover of Tamriel.

Related: Skyrim: Things Most People May Have Missed In DawnstarThe robes grant you 75 percent magika regeneration making them a suitable choice to wear when casting spells that quickly depletes your reserves. However, there is no spell reduction effect.

  • You can find this robe set on Silas Vesuius in Dawnstar during the quest Pieces of the Past that becomes available to the player at level 20.

5 Shrouded Robes

The mage equivalent of the Dark Brotherhood's Shrouded Armor, these robes aid you in any assassinations you wish to undertake using magic. The Shrouded Robes specialize in boosting your destruction magic as it makes destruction spells 15 percent less to cast, but fails to strengthen your magika regeneration.

Related: Skyrim: The Best Factions In The Game

This means you will be able to sling more fireballs before you run out of magika.

  • Knowing how to get past the Black Door is essential since these robes are found in the Falkreath Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary on the shelf when you first enter.

4 Taron Dreth's Robes

Worn by the Dunmer Taron Dreth, these share the same style as the Master Robes and offer both a boost to magika regeneration and make destruction spells 15 percent less to cast. This is a lesser bonus than traditional Master Robes, but still beneficial if you don't want to pay the Master Robes' steep price.

These robes are useful if you want to dabble in destruction magic, but are unsure if you want to commit to it all the way. To obtain these robes you will need to have the Dawnguard DLC installed.

  • They are obtainable after you complete the questline Lost to the Ages when Taron Dreth will appear as a random encounter.

If you don't have the Dawnguard DLC, the Apprentice Robes of Destruction offer the same effects as Taron Dreth's Robes.

  • You can purchase Apprentice Robes of Destruction from various Merchants and in the College of Winterhold.

3 Master Robes

These robes may seem plain in style, but they offer some of the best effects of the non-unique robes in Skyrim. Master Robes increase magika regeneration by 150 percent so you can continue casting spells to your heart's content. Master Robes also come in variations that reduce the cost of spells by 22 percent in different schools of magic.

Combined with different perks, this effect can greatly reduce the cost of spells making it even easier to cast multiple spells in a short amount of time.

  • The Master Robes and its variations can be bought at the College of Winterhold once you reach level 32.

2 Miraak's Robes

Worn by the first Dragonborn himself, Miraak's robes are unique in the effects it grants you. Instead of boosting magika regeneration, Miraak's Robes will give you the ability to absorb 15 percent of all spells and dragon's breath damage. Since robes don't grant their wearer any armor protection, this effect is extremely useful in fights as you can take more damage without having to stop and heal yourself.

Related: Skyrim: Every Dragonborn, Ranked By Power In addition, every time you take damage there is a chance to spawn a tentacle explosion which will damage your foes.

  • If you want to spawn tentacles at random, these robes can be looted off Miraak's body upon completion of the Dragonborn DLC's main questline.

1 Archmage's Robes

Resembling the Master robes in appearance, these robes offer the most effects to you making them the most practical robes to wear in combat. Not only do you receive a 15 percent cost reduction in all spells, but you also receive an extra 30 magika and a magika regeneration rate of 100 percent.

The Archmage's Robes are the best at conserving your magic during fights, especially with the extra base magika granted. The robes allow you to cast the most spells without waiting a long time for your magika to come back.

  • The Archmage's Robes can be yours by completing the College of Winterhold quest The Eye of Magnus.

Best Robes in Skyrim: Our Top 10 Outfits

There is a common misconception regarding robes in Skyrim.

Some people think that only wizards should wear them, when in reality there are some robes that can increase the efficiency of almost every class of warrior.

You’ll need to find a proper robe to suit your needs and there’s no better place to start than this list.

I’ll give you a rundown of the best robes in Skyrim and show you where to find them.

This list takes into consideration all of the robes available in the game, so be sure to look for the one that adapts to what you’re looking for. I do concede, however, that most of the robes on this list are ideal to be worn by mages of all schools of magic.

I’ve also included a couple sets of clothing that offer good benefits to every player and can be easily interchanged with robes to provide different effects during quests.

10. Necromancer’s Robes

Necromancers robes skyrim

The Necromancer’s robes are very easy to find and you’ll often come across them on any dungeon where black magic is practiced.

In fact, you should be able to come across some of these robes during the first few quests of the College of Winterhold, when looking to retrieve the books for the Archmage.

The Necromancer’s robes grant a significant boost to your magicka regeneration as they increase it by 75%.

Granted you’ll be walking around the College of Winterhold dressed as someone who performs black magic in shady dungeons, but you’ll be able to cast spells much more frequently!


9. Telvanni Robes

Telvanni robes in skyrim

You can find the Telvanni robes being worn by Ildari Sarothril in the Highpoint Tower.

The effect that Telvanni robes provide is the same as the Necromancer’s robes.

The main advantage of the Telvanni robes is that you won’t have to walk around dressed as a necromancer to increase your magicka regeneration by 75% and, in fact, the Telvanni robes look way more sleek than their dark-hooded counterpart.

You can’t kill Ildari if you want to earn these clothes. You will receive them as a reward as soon as you finish the “Old Friends” quest.


8. Dunmer Outfit (Every Variation)

Dunmer outfits in skyrim

It’s no surprise that the Dunmer’s favorite outfit includes some sort of magical attribute, considering that Dark Elves are commonly known as some of the strongest wizards that roam Tamriel.

As such, the Dunmer outfit (which comes in different versions, including hooded and non-hooded variants) gives you a 75% magicka regeneration bonus.

The versatility of the Dunmer outfit makes it one of the finest magician’s robes that you can get in Skyrim, and the fact that they’re worn by countless NPC’s in the game makes them quite easy to find and obtain.


7. Mythic Dawn Robes

Mythic Dawn robes

Worn by members of the Mythic Dawn cult, the Mythic Dawn robes have the same effect as the last three items on this list.

But they grant you a slicker look than any of the former. Thankfully not many people around Skyrim know how members of the Mythic Dawn dress so you won’t be raising many eyebrows by wearing their outfit!

You’ll need to either steal these robes from the quarters of a Mythic Dawn member or kill any member of the faction if you wish to get your hands on a set of these robes.


6. Taron Dreth’s Robes

Taron Dreths robes in skyrim

Worn by Taron Dreth himself, these robes are identical to the Master’s Robes.

However they have a very powerful enchantment which makes destruction spells cost 15% less to cast while also giving you a bonus of 75% magicka regeneration speed.

Obtaining the robe can prove to be a bit of a challenge. Dreth will attack you if you tell him that you have a mutual friend, as he fears that you know too much about him.
Although it sounds a tad morbid, simply killing the shady character and looting the clothes from his body is the easiest way to get them!


5. Shrouded Robes

Shrouded Robes from Skyrim

Even though the Dark Brotherhood is better known for their light armor sets, the Shrouded Robes are also a valuable piece of equipment that you can find by progressing through the Dark Brotherhood questline.

As you would expect from any item coming from this institution, the Shrouded Robes give you a bonus of 15% less casting cost to destruction spells.

Naturally you can use these clothes as an assassin – especially if you need to cast a powerful spell to murder someone when they aren’t looking but are lacking the necessary magicka to do so!


4. Cicero’s Clothes

Ciceros clothes in skyrim

The outfit worn by Cicero himself is the only non-robe included in this list.

But it’s too good not to share it with you. Getting your hands on it can be quite complicated, as you’ll need to complete the Dark Brotherhood questline to be able to obtain it (Cicero must die as well).

However the effects make it worth your time trying to obtain the outfit.

It doubles the amount of damage that you do while sneaking, while also giving you a boost of 35% to the ability itself.

When using Cicero’s boots you’ll be able to move silently and undetected thanks to the enchantment that is bestowed upon them.

You also get 20% better prices when bargaining with these clothes!


3. Master Robes

The Master Robes in Skyrim

Master robes are fantastic.

They grant you a 150% bonus to your magicka regeneration speed, making them a must-have for every wizard (or even aspiring wizard!) in the lands of Skyrim.

The only downside for fashion aficionados is that the robes have no hood, so you might want to find a black hood to match them.

You can buy them at the College of Winterhold as soon as you reach level 32, where you will be able to find them in the store. Keep in mind that you must be level 32 as a whole (your level on each independent school of magic doesn’t influence the availability of this item).


2. Miraak’s Robes

Miraaks robes skyrim

These legendary robes are the ones worn by the powerful Miraak, who appears during the Dragonborn DLC’s main questline.

You must complete the quest “At the Summit of Apocrypha” in order to obtain them and the robes have quite a unique effect: they absorb 15% of the magicka from dragon breath and spells that you receive.

And they also have a chance, when hit, to spawn a tentacle explosion.


1. Archmage’s Robes

Archmages robes in skyrim

The Archmage’s robes are worn by the Archmage of the College of Winterhold.

These robes are widely regarded as the finest piece of clothing in the game when it comes to wizards, as they provide a 15% reduction of magicka cost for all spells, +50 magicka to your total, and a 100% magicka regen bonus.

You can obtain the robes after completing the questline of the College of Winterhold when you become the archmagi and obtain a key to the Archmage’s Quarters located at the top of one of the towers of the college.
