For other uses, see Holy Word.

Holy Word is a Mysticism spell available in The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall. It has a low-to-medium-level chance of dispelling undead, such as zombies and ghosts in an area around the Hero, as it is an area of effect spell. It has a base 10% chance to work, and adds 2% per level of the Hero.


  • This spell is very useful when being attacked by multiple undead enemies at once.


  • This spell is a stronger version of Holy Touch.
  • If the spell succeeds, it will not leave a corpse of the dead enemy. This can result in an essential undead character being killed, and a broken quest that cannot be completed.
