    So, remember those Shrines that you run across constantly? The ones that are used to cure yourself of Vamparism, let yourself shout more often or for RP reasons? Yeah, well what if I said that these are actually badass with Ordinator as long as you take Restoration/ Yeah, that's right, today is just going tobe a quick breakdown on how awesome Shrine Blessings can be with just Ordinator, Aurora and Imperious.

    There are two Perks and a Racial Bonus + Standing Stone that can effect Shrine Blessings in different ways. The perks are Pilgram (1% boost per level of Restoration), Gods and Mortals (double duration and extra effect) and the other bonus is combining Stones of Galen and the Ritual Stone as a Breton. 

    Pilgram + Gods and Mortals + Akatosh = Magicka Regenerates 20% faster for 12 hours

    Pilgram + Gods and Mortals + Arkay = Increase your Health by 50 for 12 hours

    Pilgram + Gods and Mortals + Dibella = +20 Speechcraft for 12 hours

    Pilgram + Gods and Mortals + Julianos = Increases your  Magicka by 50 for 12 hours

    Pilgram + Gods and Mortals + Kynareth = Increases your Stamina by 50 for 12 hours

    Pilgram + Gods and Mortals + Mara = Healing Spells are 20% more powerful for 12 hours

    Pilgram + Gods and Mortals + Stendarr = Block 20% more damage for 12 hours

    Pilgram + Gods and Mortals + Talos = Shout Cooldown is reduced by 40% for 12 hours

    Pilgram + Gods and Mortals + Zenithar = Prices are 20% better for 12 hours

    Honestly I believe that most of them are mediocre at best. Things like a 50 point boost to Htealh, Stamina and Magicka aren't that great and Akatosh's is kind of trash. However, Talos, Zenithar and Mara (possibly Dibella as well) all more than make up for that by being kind of awesome, and...oh wait there's more. You see Stones of Galen is interesting because it adds an extra effect to all Standing Stones and the one that it adds to the Ritual Stone is a 4x boost to all Shrine Blessings at the cost of reducing their duration to only 5 minutes (300 seconds), which is an insane drop but to counter that is the sheer insanity that might be possible if Pilgram and the Ritual Stone work together to both boost the Blessings.

    Pilgram + GaM + SoG Ritual Stone + Akatosh = Magicka Regenerates 80% faster for 450 seconds (7 and 1/2 minutes)

    Pilgram + GaM + SoG Ritual Stone + Arkay = Increase your Health by 200 for 450 seconds (7 and 1/2 minutes)

    Pilgram + GaM + SoG Ritual Stone Dibella = +80 Speechcraftfor 450 seconds (7 and 1/2 minutes)

    Pilgram + GaM + SoG Ritual Stone + Julianos = Increases your  Magicka by 200 for 450 seconds (7 and 1/2 minutes)

    Pilgram + GaM + SoG Ritual Stone + Kynareth = Increases your Stamina by 200for 450 seconds (7 and 1/2 minutes)

    Pilgram + GaM + SoG Ritual Stone + Mara = Healing Spells are 80% more powerfulfor 450 seconds (7 and 1/2 minutes)

    Pilgram + GaM + SoG Ritual Stone + Stendarr = Block 80% more damage for 450 seconds (7 and 1/2 minutes)

    Pilgram + GaM + SoG Ritual Stone + Talos = Shout Cooldown is reduced by 160% for 450 seconds (7 and 1/2 minutes)

    Pilgram + GaM + SoG Ritual Stone + Zenithar = Prices are 80% betterfor 450 seconds (7 and 1/2 minutes)

    Even if Pilgram and the Ritual Stone don't work together, your still looking at effects that are half as powerful as the ones I listed there. I don't know about you but being able to boost my Magicka or Health by 100 points is still kind of not terrible, not to even mention the fact that with Zenithar I think you'd be selling stuff for pretty close to base value if you maxed out Speech, you could also earn money by buying things and then selling them if Ordinator does cool enough things to Speech (which it probably does). Not to mention Stendarr giving you an insanely powerful defense or Talos...oh yeah, just straight up giving you either 80% shorter cooldown (so 100% with an Amulet) or removing the cooldown completely. 

    So yeah, there are some pretty fun things that can be down with Ordinator, Enai Siaion's other mods and Shrine Blessings, a little too powerful in my opinion, but still easily things you can base an entire build around. I've been thinking of doing it with a build that would be based around Akatosh myself, but you know, he might have the most mediocre bonus of the lot (despite being a Dragon and all). Anyway, hope this article was useful, it's definitely a shorter one than my most recent tips which is why I'm not just waiting to post it later.
