Is Fire Breath considered a Fire Spell?[edit]

Does anyone know if the Fire Breath shout has its damage affected by your Destruction perks? 13:17, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Extra Damage[edit]

When it says "targets on fire take extra damage", is it referring to the additional damage caused by the burn effect, or targets on fire actually take more damage from hits? 06:07, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Fire and Fear[edit]

Is Intense Flames Fear affected by Illusion perks like Aspect of Terror and Master of the Mind? SonGoharotto (talk) 17:20, 20 December 2012 (GMT)

Not sure about the second part, as Fire spells are not part of the Illusion college. However, the Aspect of Terror perk causes fire spells to do an extra 10 points of damage instead of increasing the level of target affected, since destruction spells don't have an upper target level limit.

Perhaps I should be asking if Intense Flames Fear affects undead, since they're normally immune to Illusions spells, unless you have MotM. I've heard that the Intense Flames Fear effect isn't limited by level.
It seems to me that Fire Damage could be the single most potent enchantment in the game. You've got two levels of Augmented Flames for 50% more damage, Intense Flames to add a Fear effect, Fire Enchanter for a 25% stronger enchantment, Necromage for 25% extra damage to undead, Aspect of Terror for fixed +10 damage, and undead are already vulnerable to fire in general. (A dual enchantment with Fiery Soul Trap, which I know is affected by some of these perks, also bumps up the total by something like 22 points.) SonGoharotto (talk) 23:41, 20 December 2012 (GMT)
