Fear is an apprentice level Illusion spell that causes a creature or person up to level 9 to flee from combat for 30 seconds.


  • Fear, 9 pts for 30 secs


Note that most of these perks will stack, so the overall effective values for the spell with perks are as follows:

Perks Max Lvl
Single-cast Dual-cast
None 9 19
Animage 17 37
Kindred Mage 19 41
Aspect of Terror 19 41
Animage + Aspect of Terror 27 59
Kindred Mage + Aspect of Terror 29 63

Master of the Mind will not stack with Kindred Mage or Animage, which is primarily of interest when attempting to cast spells on vampires, when it will come up that Kindred Mage does not apply, even though vampires have black souls. Death Hounds are not affected by Animage, but they are not animals to begin with; more generally, the perks will not combine when fighting people or animals raised by necromancers.
