Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Gormlaith Golden-Hilt prefers to use this shout instead of Disarm or Unrelenting Force once Dawnguard is installed.
- The version used by Revered and Legendary Dragons does more damage and will hone in on the Dragonborn from a distance. Damage can only be avoided by standing behind something solid as the creature shouts. It cannot be countered by either spell resistance or spell absorption.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
This section contains bugs related to Drain Vitality (Dawnguard). Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- Marked for Death shouts, a second version (or several more) of one of them, that uses the same words, will appear in the shout menu and will be usable, with all the words having a cooldown of 12. Its description will say "Drains 1 points of Health per second for 20 seconds. Drains 1 point of Magicka per second for 20 seconds. Drains 1 points of Stamina per second for 20 seconds." Spending a soul on Marked for Death also counts as using it on said copy. Each time a new word is learned for Marked for Death, it is learned for this alternate version as well.
If the Dragonborn has acquired at least 1 word of both the Drain Vitality and
- Fix: Start a new game without Dawnguard installed, after acquiring all 3 words of Marked for Death, it is now possible to install Dawnguard, then acquire Drain Vitality, without the glitched duplicate shout.
- Fix: Un-installing Dawnguard (which will remove all of Dawnguard's content and quest progression), then completing the Marked for Death shout. And, finally, re-installing Dawnguard.
help "drain vitality"and
player.removeshout <ID>, one can remove all versions of the bugged shout and then if words of the shout were already discovered, re-add the words with
player.teachword <ID>(see IDs above).
Using the console commands
- This fix does not work on the Special Edition of the game.
