Bugs[edit]

  • The "Turn Undead Push" effect varies between these three spells. Notably in the "Turn Undead" spell, it has a magnitude of 0. This means it may stagger an opponent, but won't push them back.
    • PC Only This issue has been addressed by version 1.3.0 of the Unofficial Skyrim Patch; the stagger effect for Turn Undead has been set to 75 pts.
