Flame Thrall is a master-level Conjuration spell in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Casting it permanently summons a flame atronach. The atronach follows and defends its master until banished, killed, or turned.

Attributes[edit | edit source]

Flame thralls have twice as much health as a conjured flame atronach. Flame thralls can be damaged by cloak spells, such as Lightning Cloak. Since flame thralls are resistant to fire damage, area of effect spells of that element do not harm it. In addition to Firebolt, flame thralls are also able to use Flames, unlike flame atronachs.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If one does not have the required magicka, it is possible to use the power Secret of Arcana (spells cost no magicka for 30 seconds) to conjure the flame thrall. The power can be acquired by reading the Black Book: Filament and Filigree, obtained at the completion of the corresponding quest.
  • Like the other master-level Conjuration spells, it takes two hands to cast the flame thrall spell. This means that it is best not to cast this spell in the midst of combat, unless one has a follower present, or another summoned creature via the Twin Souls perk, to keep the enemy occupied while the spell is being cast.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

This section contains bugs related to Flame Thrall. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  /  XB1  ,  PS3  /  PS4  ,  PC  /  MAC  ,  NX  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  •  PS3   The thrall may fail to summon if the caster is wearing clothing or armor with Conjuration discount enchantments. It can be successfully summoned if the caster removes all such clothing and then casts the spell. Afterwards, he or she can re-equip all removed articles without consequence.
  • Conjuration spells Banish Daedra and Expel Daedra will not work because the thrall is too powerful for the spell. Also, weapons enchanted with Banish effect will not work. However, with the Conjuration Dual Casting perk, the thrall can be expelled.
  •  PC   Casting master-level Conjuration spells may not work. This bug could be fixed by closing to desktop and reopening the game.
  •  PS4   If a follower accidentally attacks a thrall with any spell, it will become permanently hostile to them, but not you, until disposed of.
  • The flame thrall may disappear after fast traveling. However, characters will still comment on the Dragonborn as if they still have a flame thrall with them, saying lines such as "dangerous magic."
  • The flame thrall may not follow the Dragonborn into indoor locations. Initially the flame thrall will spawn inside an interior location, behind the Dragonborn, but will exit through the same path that they use to enter.
    • This can be fixed by immediately running before the flame thrall exits the interior, then it will follow as normal.
    • On rare occasions the flame thrall may disappear completely.
