For other uses, see Vampire's Bane.

Vampire's Bane is an Adept level Restoration spell found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard. It casts a projectile that explodes on impact dealing damage to undead.


It can only be bought if the Dawnguard are sided with. Florentius Baenius at Fort Dawnguard will sell the tome after he is rescued in "Bolstering the Ranks".

It is however possible to buy the tome if the Volkihar Clan is joined, by using a Calm or Pacify spell on Florentius Baenius during the "Destroying the Dawnguard" quest. Once calmed, he can be spoken to and the tome may be bought from him.


  • The spell tome has the Destruction symbol on it, despite it being a Restoration spell.
  • Its area-of-effect damage will not harm the caster under normal conditions, but will if they are a vampire.
