Flame Cloak is an Adept level Destruction spell in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Flame Cloak surrounds the caster in a wall of fire. If an enemy hits or gets too close to the caster, that enemy is set on fire for 8 points of damage. Also, if Flame Cloak is active, its damage is applied to the Dragonborn's melee damage.
