Impact perk only working with fire spells

#1asterix420Posted 5/31/2012 12:51:45 PM
I know this perk won't work with novice spells. The strangest is that it happens with all my characters. If that helps, I only took the perks that enhance the damage for fire spells. Has anyone got the same problem?

It works on my chain lightning. But I took only the middle finger perks (if you don't remember what the perk tree looks like it is the lightning perks). I'll see if I have time later for loading up my Mage and testing if the fire impact works. I do occasionally use ice spike and remember it working for that spell.

Thanks for your reply. But there's something I didn't mention: I only use ice spikes against firebreathing dragons. I tried it on a sabre cat and it worked! Though I'm pretty sure there were other instances when it wouldn't stun the enemy... It doesn't bother me that much, mind you, but I just thought I had to do my share of beta-testing the game for Bethesda.

it's already known that impact casting only works on dragons if you have the augmented element perk to go along with it.

Wait, which perk is that? The bonus effect after the 2 damage upgrades?

Oh well... My mistake then. I guess that makes sense. Thank you, daddy!

No, that's the one after the dual casting perk. It allows you to stun the enemy when dual casting a projectile spell.
