  • This spell affects friends as well as foes, and may earn you a bounty for multiple assaults depending on who's affected by it. For this reason, it's best if it is used in situations where you only have followers around, as they have a higher threshold against attacks from you before they become hostile and/or report it.
  • Atronachs, automatons, dragons, dragon priests, horses, ice wraiths, mammoths, skeletons, wisps, and wispmothers are immune to paralysis. These targets may still be affected by the stagger effect, however.
  • This spell is very useful against enemies who tend to swarm you, such as falmer, draugr and forsworn, especially in close quarters.
