Magic Anomaly is a creature found during and tied to events resulting from the Eye of Magnus and the Aftershock quests in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. They are fast, agile creatures that are highly resistant to magic and difficult to hit. One effective strategy is to use a Lightning Cloak spell, which will cause damage to the anomalies when attacking while using restoration spells to heal the Dragonborn.
Once slain, Anomalies explode into a large ball of raw magic, dealing no damage to surrounding creatures. Their final bodies appear as fine blue dust on the ground or in the air where they were last floating.
- Winterhold during the quest Containment.
- At the ruptures during Aftershock.
- The College of Winterhold during The Eye of Magnus.
- South to South-East of Rannvieg's Fast.
- A filled Soul Gem of any size (Petty to Grand, including Black) can be found, which was once powering their existence in Skyrim.
- Makes the same noises as an Ice Wraith when attacked
- Can give the player an ice bite, which says "Ice Wraith Bite" as a description.
- Occasionally are mistaken for Ice Wraiths or Wisps because of their appearance and sounds.
- When their health is low, they may turn and try to stay out of melee-combat range.
