Incinerate is an Expert-level Destruction spell in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Casting it causes a blast of fire to eject from a single hand, dealing 60 points of fire damage. Targets on fire take extra damage.

Incinerate can be considered an upgraded version of Firebolt as it behaves similarly but with faster travel time and higher damage.


  • When dual cast with the Impact perk and Augmented Flames perks or an Elixir of Destruction (+50% damage), it will always stagger an opponent, regardless of the creature's size or type.
  • Incinerate has a high velocity, making it useful against dragons.


With each level of the Augmented Flames perk, Incinerate does an additional 25% (15) fire damage and at max, 90.
