The Drainspell Bow is one of four unique ghost weapons wielded by spectral variants of draugr. These can be encountered only in Labyrinthian during "The Staff of Magnus" quest, with the exception of the Ghostblade, found during "A Love Beyond Death."
It absorbs 15 points of magicka with each hit. As with most other ghost weapons, it cannot be improved at a grindstone. Additionally, it can also be disenchanted at an Arcane Enchanter to learn its enchantment.
- The bow's enchantment is very weak; when fully charged, it can only last for two to three hits before being totally drained.
This section contains bugs related to Drainspell Bow. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- If placed on a weapon rack, it may sometimes fall through.
- Due to the weapon's holder spawning as a different Draugr due to the game's random generator, the Bow's appearance in a game is completely random. For some it may show two or three times in a game, for others it may never show. The only way to fix this is to reload a save right before you enter Labyrinthian.
- You can disenchant this weapon even if you already have the absorb magicka enchantment, like the other drainspell weapons, you can also stack the both enchantments.
