About This File
Restores the Shalidor's Mirror spell from Arena and Daggerfall which allows you to reflect enemy spells. Unlike similar mods, this one works perfectly against concentration spells. The spellbook is provided as an additional reward in a related high level quest.
Shalidor’s Mirror is an ancient spell from Arena and Daggerfall that allows the caster to reflect spells back to the attacker. The spell was probably meant to be included in Skyrim which even contains a reflection sound file, but it didn’t happen.
This mod does that. It provides a fully functional Shalidor’s Mirror spell based on my implementation of Reflective Wards which, unlike a similar mod, work perfectly against concentrated spells as well as aimed ones. It also restores the reflection sound. It’s available for the player character as an additional reward in a related high level quest. Here’s a video by Ikari showcasing the spell. Please note that the spell occupies both hands, and there’s a good reason for that, but it can (and should) be overcharged.
The mod should win a conflict with Cutting Room Floor, otherwise you won’t receive the spellbook, but a scroll of magicka instead.
To get the spellbook as part of the new quest reward, console setstage mgr22 20
You can use placeatme 45ca0 to test against a warlock using a basic concentration spell. Remember that wards take a little time to charge until they are fully operational.
You can use placeatme 45cbe for a warlock using a fireball.
The spell can even be used by NPCs, but the A.I. gets stuck on cast mode after using this spell until it decides to do something different.
