  • Unlike the silent swings from regular daggers, attacks with bound dagger are "noisy," causing the striker to be spotted when sneaking if the dagger is swung, regardless if the attack hits or misses.
  • If dual cast so that one bound dagger is in each hand, using a dual wield power attack will not use the normal dual dagger animation. Instead, the regular spinning dual power attack will take place.
  •  PC   Attempting to use this spell in one hand or the other (or both) may cause an instant game crash. This issue and an in-game solution to prevent this from happening is discussed in this forum.
  •  PC   While casting this spell, a normally-colored Daedric dagger may materialize instead of an aetheral one. The issue is purely aesthetic and does not currently have a known solution.
