Notes[edit]

  • This spell is normally unavailable if you join the vampires, as Florentius Baenius will be hostile to you. However, if you use a Pacify spell or item, you can calm him down so that he'll sell it to you. You must do this before you destroy the Dawnguard.
  • The explosion caused by this spell will scatter objects around and may make loot harder to find.

Bugs[edit]

  • The spell tome for this spell looks like a Destruction book, but it is actually Restoration.
  • This spell will not damage reanimated enemies unless they were classed as undead before being killed. This is due to a missing condition check in the spell's settings (the spell only checks for the ActorTypeUndead keyword instead of also checking the IsUndead condition).
