Trivia[]

  • When ash spawn are killed, the weapons that they used when alive cannot be looted.
  • They usually drop a variety of metal ores—including the typically rarer ones such as ebony ore, gold ore, or quicksilver ore—but they always drop some spawn ash, an alchemical ingredient.
  • The Dragonborn can acquire the Conjure Ash Spawn spell by helping Neloth with his research and purchasing the spell from Talvas Fathryon afterwards.
  • According to Elder Othreloth, ash spawn are the re-animated cremated remains of deceased Dunmer. The Dunmer cremate their dead and inter or scatter the ashes, and it is further proven by them being encountered in the Raven Rock Ancestral Tomb, rising from the ashes of the deceased.
  • Ash spawn race has "ActorTypeDwarven" keyword assigned, so they, as any other dwarven automaton, cannot be expelled, turned, scared or repelled, nor is it affected by any healing or necromantic healing spells.
    • The Conjure Ash Spawn spell is unaffected by the Twin Souls perk.
    • Ash spawn are resistant to vampire drain attacks.
    • When killed, ash spawn add to the "Automatons Killed" counter.confirmation needed
  • The second volume of Ildari Sarothril's journal—a former apprentice of Neloth with a heart stone replacing her actual heart—describes how she heard "the bones in the ash calling to [her]" through the connection that her heart stone gave. Through it, she found she could "bind the spirits to bone and ash and raise a servant to do [her] bidding."
  • Ash spawn have their own form of Firebolt, which has less flames and throws off a small shower of sparks and smoke on contact.
  • Ash spawn race is called "Draugr" in Creation Kit, so the animations are copied from the actual draugr race.
