|Skill Level||Adept (50)|
|Effect||A fiery explosion for 40 points of damage in a 15 foot radius. Targets on fire take extra damage.|
Fireball is an Adept level Destruction spell in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Casting it shoots a relatively fast traveling ball of fire that explodes upon impact and deals 40 points of Fire damage in a 15 foot radius. Fireball can set enemies on fire, resulting in additional damage over time, and if it hits an already burning enemy it deals extra damage.
- The "Augmented Flames" perk increases the Fire damage done by this spell by 25% on the first point and 50% on the second point.
- The "Intense Flames" perk causes targets to flee when Health is lowered by Fire damage.
- The "Dual Casting" perk allows one to overcharge the spell.
- The "Adept Destruction" perk allows one to cast this spell at half magicka. Even though one can buy the spell book to learn Fireball at Destruction skill 40, it will become magicka efficient only upon reaching Destruction skill 50.
- This spell can do up to 75 damage when augmented with the "Aspect of Terror" perk from the Illusion skill tree (in addition to both points of the "Augmented Flames" perk), due to the 10-point increase to fire spell damage.
