Adding of possible uses[edit]

i just added the section "possible uses" it might not fit the wiki, but it is information a lot of players are looking for — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 00:30 on 4 December 2011‎


There's a trap in one of the Dwemer ruins (I think it's Avanchanzel) capable of damaging the player even while Ethereal: it's a pair of spinning blades that pop up when a door's opened. No other traps have, and this one was fatal without the shout but only 50-ish damage with it, so I don't know what's happening there. Treating it as a one-off event until further info surfaces.

Yes, it's Avanchel: the trap outside the room with Racial Phylogeny in it. Aliana 11:38, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Ataxia, consumables[edit]

A while back, I found that I received ataxia from a trap while under the effects of this shout. This was before the current patch, and I haven't had a chance to update (XBOX 360, version 1.4). Also, potions and other forms of consumable healing don't appear to work when under this effect. One explanation I can think of is that the shout simply prevents any changes to your hp outside of passive regeneration, though I can't think of a good test to narrow it down to that, and the two instances I noted could merely be bugs. Could someone confirm these two cases under the current version? Chraxia 00:19, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

Shield Charge[edit]

Shield Charge appears to work while ethereal, and it does not break the effect. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 20:28 on 9 February 2014


This note: "It is necessary to start, but not finish, The Horn of Jurgen Windcaller in order to have all three words." is confusing. It is either poorly worded or it is saying that one cannot have all three words unless The Horn of Jurgen Windcaller quest is left unfinished. 00:15, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

The sentence when fully written reads as 'it is necessary to start but not necessary to finish The Horn of Jurgen Windcaller in order to have all three words'. Nothing in that sentence suggests leaving the quest unfinished as it does not say 'it is necessary to start and necessary not to finish the quest'. If there was any suggestion of the words being unavailable after the quest I think after 5 years it would mention it clearly at the top of the page.

What still works[edit]

I think we should list the spells that can be prepared/cast without breaking the effect. Some are mentioned, but a more comprehensive list would fit the main page nicely. I already know Lightning Storm will still work. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 13:50 on 21 November 2016‎

All spells that need preparation can be prepared without breaking the effect. The examples given are only there as examples to show that the master-level spells which require long preparation times can be prepared without interruption, not as examples of which spells work as they all do.
