Drain Vitality is a Dragon Shout in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard. This shout is used by both Legendary Dragons and Revered Dragons.

EffectsEdit

  • 1 Word: 5 points of damage to stamina for 30s, stagger effect of 0.8
  • 2 Words: 5 points of damage to stamina and magicka for 30s, stagger effect of 0.8
  • 3 Words: 5 points of damage to stamina, magicka, and health for 30s, stagger effect of 0.8

This shout does not absorb those values; it only causes damage. It is unknown if this is a bug or was intentionally done by the developers.

TriviaEdit

  • Gormlaith Golden-Hilt prefers to use this shout instead of Disarm or Unrelenting Force once Dawnguard is installed.
  • The version used by Revered and Legendary Dragons does more damage and will home in on the Dragonborn from a distance. Damage can be avoided by standing behind something solid as the creature shouts.

BugsEdit

This section contains bugs related to Drain Vitality. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  ,  PS3  ,  PC  .
  3. If a fix to the bug is known, please provide it, but avoid use of first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board and not the article.
  •  PC   360   PS3  If the Dragonborn has at least 1 word of both the Drain Vitality and Marked for Death shouts known, a second version (or several more) of the former using the same words as Marked For Death will appear in the shout menu and will be usable, with all the words having a cooldown of 12. Its description will say "Drains 1 points of Health per second for 20 seconds. Drains 1 point of Magicka per second for 20 seconds. Drains 1 points of Stamina per second for 20 seconds." Spending a soul on Marked For Death also counts as using it on said copy, since they use the same words. Each time a new word is learned for Marked for Death, it is learned for this alternate version as well
    • The only known way to avoid this bug is to start a new game without Dawnguard installed, then waiting until all 3 words of Marked For Death have been acquired before installing it.[confirmation needed]
