Magicka is an important part of Skyrim - every time you cast a spell, or use some sort of magic, magicka is drained. Thankfully, there are console commands to give your character unlimited magicka so you don't need to worry about running out all of the time.
As with our other guides, you'll need to use to console. You can open the console in Skyrim by pressing the ` or ~ key. Our console help page has more information if you're having trouble opening or using the console.
Unlimited magicka can be attained using the setav command. Here's the command you'll need to enter into your console:
player.setav magicka 99999
The above command technically doesn't give you unlimited magicka - it sets your magicka to a level that would be near-impossible to deplete naturally.
Infinite magicka is fun, but it can get boring after a while. If you're looking for a little boost and only want to restore your magicka from time to time, you can use the following console command:
player.restoreav magicka 1000
The above command will restore your magicka to full - it won't push your magicka past the level it'd be when fully restored.
