Magic Anomalies are creatures found during events resulting from the quests "Eye of Magnus," "Containment," and the "Aftershock." They are fast, agile creatures that are highly-resistant to magic and difficult to hit.
Once slain, anomalies explode in a manner akin to that made from an Ice Wraith. Their final bodies appear as fine blue dust on the ground or in the air where they were last floating.
- Winterhold, during the quest "Containment."
- College of Winterhold, during quest "The Eye of Magnus."
- At the ruptures during the quest "Aftershock," which can be anywhere in Skyrim.
- They make the same noises as an ice wraith when attacking and idle.
- They can give the Dragonborn an ice bite, which says "Ice Wraith Bite" as a description.
- When their health is low, they may turn and try to stay out of melee-combat range.
- If the player manages to become level 37,449, the Magic Anomaly's level overflows and becomes level 1.
- The Magic Anomaly is one of the few entities with no level cap, the others being J'zargo, Durak, Frea, Celann, Ingjard, and the Spectral Assassin.
- One can gain two souls from a magic anomaly; first, soul trap them (with a weapon enchanted with a soul trap enchantment, or the spell itself) and kill them (with an appropriate empty soul gem in the inventory), then loot their remains for another filled gem.
