Vampire's Bane is an adept level Restoration spell added by Dawnguard, which will do 40 damage to any Undead targets within 15 feet over 2 seconds. It has no effect on non-undead.



Needs research


  • This spell is normally unavailable if you join the vampires, as Florentius Baenius will be hostile to you. However, if you use a Pacify spell or item, you can calm him down so that he'll sell it to you. You must do this before you destroy the Dawnguard.
  • The explosion caused by this spell will scatter objects around and may make loot harder to find.


  • The spell tome for this spell looks like a Destruction book, but it is actually Restoration.
  • This spell will not damage reanimated enemies unless they were classed as undead before being killed. This is due to a missing condition check in the spell's settings (the spell only checks for the ActorTypeUndead keyword instead of also checking the IsUndead condition).
