Lightning that does 8 points of shock damage to Health and Magicka per second.

Sparks is a novice level Destruction spell that deals shock damage to Health and Magicka.



  • Augmented Shock, raises damage to 10/s at first rank or 12/s at second rank


  • Like most Lightning spells, it can be used to set off Lightning Runes from a safe distance.
  • Has greater range than the other novice level Destruction spells, Flames and Frostbite, and also being instant-effect it's harder to dodge, though the higher casting cost may be a problem for beginning mages.
  • It is useful for its ability to disintegrate wounded enemies at a low magicka cost once the disintegration perk has been unlocked.
