A brown scamp

Scamps are a common Daedric creature, known for their simple-mindedness and cowardliness. Though smaller and weaker than most other Daedra, they can still be a dangerous opponent, especially in large numbers. Their lack of intellect also means they are often used by conjurers to perform mundane tasks and act as messengers.

Quest-Related Events[edit]

During Ancestral Adversity you'll discover a dead scamp. Examine it and you'll find:

"<The ominous shadow belongs to a tiny spider feasting upon a long-dead scamp. Neither poses any threat whatsoever.>"

Skills and Abilities[edit]

Scamps use fire-based spells in combat, and will often stay at range to shoot at enemies. Getting hit by their attacks may apply the "Burning" effect, which does minor flame damage over time on top of the damage done by the spell. As they are Daedric creatures, Fighters Guild skills are particularly effective.

Scamps will shoot fireballs at a player as a basic ranged attack.
Heat Wave
The scamp will charge up and release a wall of flames that travels towards the player. This attack deals moderate flame damage to all players hit by it. This spell can be interrupted to set the scamp off-balance, or simply avoided.
Rain of Fire
Scamps may channel a fiery rune on the ground that does moderate flame damage over time to all players standing within the red circle. This spell may be interrupted to set the scamp off-balance, or simply avoided.
