Technology is at its best now a day. It has taken us into a completely new world. Science and technology have changed our lives completely. We cannot see a single thing in our everyday life that does not involve technology. Our lives are full of innovation these days. Developing technology has given us the field of “Gaming”. Gaming has emerged as a separate field and today it has a prime importance for us.

Imagine you are wandering freely in a world of your own. In this world, you can do whatever you like. You can wander freely or explore the landscapes or you can kill others. This thrill is given to us by gaming. Now a day, we have a large number of games that provide us with entertainment and thrill. In these, we have one of the best games known as Elder Scrolls.

Elder Scrolls

If speaking about the top role-playing games, Elder Scrolls is on the top. It is one of our personal favorites and you must try it as well. This game holds the record to have the largest number of players in all time.

Elder Scrolls Online is our personal choice and is known to be the best MMORPG. It provides the best gaming experience to its players.

In all the parts of this game, we will be discussing about Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

As we know, the game makes us to choose among different races that include elves, orcs, high elves and some others. Some of the top races in the game make the mage archetype. And the purest mage race are the high elves.

What does Restoration do?

In short, this skill can be described as a control over life force of one own and others as well. It is a highly underrated skill that gives us access to healing abilities and control over the undead. It has a huge advantage for any player who can use it. It lets you heal yourself easily and you can also bring any undead creature to your side. There is one more thing that Restoration gives to its users which is protection. In spite of healing, players can use Restoration spells to make protective circles around them or get protective wards that protect them form damage. So, we can say that restoration is one of the most beneficial skills in the game that is underestimated. If upgraded and used properly, it can make a player nearly invincible for others.
