- Thalmor wizards, Novice Shock Mages, and Electromancers commonly use this spell.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
This section contains bugs related to Sparks (Skyrim). Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- Players may not be able to deselect spells, Sparks being one of them. It shows up as either R. One possible solution is listed below:
- Tab-open the magic index and assign a couple of spells as favorites (using the F key)
- Go back to the game and open the favorites index (key Q)
- Assign numbers from 1–9 to each spell
- Go back to the game and double tap the number of a spell (i.e. Flames) so it will be assigned to the both hands. Notice how the glitched spell has been substituted by the double-tapped spell
- Tap a different number to assign a different spell to the left hand (ie Lesser Ward). You can see that your right hand has Flames and the left has Lesser Ward.
- Dragons may not attack if under the effect of Sparks.
- This may be used while holding an object that can be held and used on it to create the effect that Telekinesis has objects.
