Lightning Cloak is an Adept level Destruction spell in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Lightning Cloak surrounds the caster by a wall of lightning. If an enemy hits or gets too close to the caster, the enemy is shocked for 8 points of damage. Also, if Lightning Cloak is active, its damage is applied to the Dragonborn's melee damage.


  • Dual Casting doubles the range of the spell.
  • The spell is not affected by the Augmented Shock perk.
  • If the Dragonborn has the Disintegrate perk, the enemies will sometimes disintegrate when using the Lightning Cloak.
