Notes[edit]

  • Unlike previous TES games, frenzy related spells used on most non-hostile NPCs is considered an assault. The only exception applies to followers following the player where they will only warn the player of "friendly fire". They will not attack. However, if they are immediately dismissed before the frenzy effect dissipates, they will turn hostile to their surroundings (with no possibility of a bounty occurring).
  • With the Poisoned perk, potions of frenzy can be reverse-pickpocketed onto an NPC to cause them to become hostile towards those around them. In populated areas, this will normally result in their death with no negative consequences to you.
