Restoration Staff is one of the six weapon skills available in Elder Scrolls Online. Most active and passive abilities enabled by Restoration Staves focus on protecting and healing allies, while others help recharge the user’s magicka. In addition, dealing a fully-charged heavy attack to an enemy will also recharge the user’s magicka based on their level. The use of these abilities, and progression in the skill line, require equipping a Restoration type staff. Restoration Staves have an associated skill line that is revealed through use of a Restoration Staff. Known abilities are listed below.
