Fires a Spectral Arrow at the target doing 30 points of damage and staggering the target.

Spectral Arrow is a Conjuration spell that deals 30 damage to Health and causes targets to stagger when hit. It is especially effective against a single target, as you can hit enemies repeatedly before they have a chance to recover and fight back. The damage is non-elemental, it is only affected by magic resistance.

Effects[edit]

Notes[edit]

  • This is the only direct-damage spell outside of the Destruction school, with the exception of a few Restoration spells added by Dawnguard which only work on the undead and Poison Rune which was added by Dragonborn.
  • This spell is cast silently, even without the Silent Casting perk, making it well suited for stealth.
  • The projectile is also used for another unused item, the Ancient Nord Magic Arrow, which was apparently intended to be used by draugr.
