Ignite is an apprentice-level Destruction spell in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn.


Ignite causes a bolt of flame to shoot from the caster's hand after momentary charging. The bolt sets a target on fire for 15 seconds, inflicting damage over time.


This spell is gained by wearing Ahzidal's Ring of Arcana found in Kolbjorn Barrow during the third investment stage of the quest "Unearthed." Wearing the ring also grants the spell Freeze to the Dragonborn.



  • Effects stack on top of each-other independently. Every stack is unaffected by the presence of other stacks.
  • Shares the same animation and projectile graphic as Firebolt.
  • Arguably, with Aspect of Terror, Ignite is the most damaging spell in the game for its magicka cost, capable of dealing 693 damage over 15 seconds if dual cast.
