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.


  • 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.
