Daggerfall:Bestiary

Jump to: navigation, search

This article provides an overview of the creatures in Daggerfall.

  • 'Higher levels' generally refers to level 14 (at least) and higher. However it is possible to encounter the dangerous foes already at level 6.
  • All monsters of a kind have the same level throughout the game, in plain language, a giant rat is always at level 1 and an Ancient Lich is always at level 21. Except for selecting the random dungeon inhabitants, the level of an enemy is only relevant if it is a spellcaster, since magnitude, chance and duration of spells are determined by the level of its caster.
  • The skills of an enemy also depend on its level. The value of any skill will always be five times the enemy's level plus a starting value of 30. For example, a level 20 enemy or higher has all skills at 100 a rat all skills at 35. For non-humanoid adversaries the skills in the six magical schools can never surpass 80.
  • The fighting strategies contain recommendations based on Daggerfall gamers' personal experiences. In general, spell reflection/resistance/absorption are very useful in fighting any monster which casts spells. If would be worth your while to invest in these spells or items which can cast them.
  • If there is a certain material needed to hurt a monster, weapons of lower quality will not do any harm to the monster, even in case they are enchanted. When it comes to weapons, only the material is crucial, not whether it is an enchanted weapon (unlike in Morrowind or Oblivion).
  • Humanoid enemies and some monsters are associated with a language skill which may prevent them from attacking you unless provoked (attacked or pickpocketed) in case your own skill in this language is sufficient high.
    The chance to tame these enemies can be calculated according to these formulas:
    Monsters:
    (player's language skill + (player's personality ÷ 10) + weapon status) ÷ 200
    Humanoids:
    ( (player's personality ÷ 5) + (player's etiquette skill ÷ 10) + weapon status ) ÷ 200
    • Weapon status: +10 sheathed, -25 drawn
  • The sound file contains the monster's characteristic noise. Very often a monster can be heard long before it can be seen, so recognizing the sounds can prepare you for what awaits you in a dark dungeon. It will also make the task of finding your quest target a lot easier.

[edit] Monsters

Monsters are fantastic creatures with various magical abilities, ranging from magical attacks to various magical resistances, and may require special materials to harm. Some have an associated language skill. Also, unlike animals, you can usually find some treasure on them.

[edit] Humanoids

Other humanoid foes can be encountered throughout the Iliac Bay. They always have the same level as the player and they can be fairly dangerous at higher levels. If the player's character rises in level during a quest or while in a dungeon, humanoid foes that are already set-up, be it as quest adversaries or as dungeon inhabitants, will not rise in level. They will remain on the same level the player was when he accepted the quest e.g. entered the dungeon. Like orcs, they carry equipment and fall into three categories:

  • Warriors: Heavily armored, use ranged attacks.
  • Mages: Cast spells. Spell reflection/resistance/absorption advised.
  • Thieves: Lightly armored. Often attack rapidly, use ranged attacks.

[edit] Spells humanoid spellcasters can use

The following table shows the spells that are used by humanoid spellcasters. These spells depend on the level of the spellcaster and as it was already mentioned above, humanoid foes have always the same level as the player's character. It must be noted, that all spellcasters cast the same spells, regardless to which class they belong.

[edit] Lycanthropes

Lycanthropes seen in the Iliac Bay area are all either werewolves or wereboars. At least silver is needed to harm them, though they're not exceptionally dangerous (compared to werewolves in Bloodmoon) and carry no treasure. However, be advised that there is a risk of contracting lycanthropy from combat.

[edit] Atronachs

Unlike in Morrowind and Oblivion, the atronachs in Daggerfall are not daedra, but rather constructs created by mages in the Iliac Bay area. Though they can be hit by any material, they're tied to a certain element. Lastly, they carry no treasure. Ice Atronachs can also be found underwater.

These should not be confused Dwemer Centurions as found in Redguard and Morrowind, nor with Sotha Sil's Fabricants from the Tribunal expansion to Morrowind.
Name Note
Air Atronach These monsters don't actually exist in the game, although you can find their souls in Soul Gems. Most likely the names of the four atronachs were changed at some point in the development process and some names were forgotten and left as they were.
Earth Atronach
Water Atronach

[edit] Undead

Undead creatures consist of spirits, reanimated skeletons, reanimated corpses, and vampires. They're a recurring menace in dungeons, and some can be very dangerous. Most undead are able to detect invisible foes. Ghosts, Skeleton Warriors, Wraiths and Zombies are also often found underwater.

Probably the most dangerous foe in the game for two reasons:
  • Unlike Ancient Liches and Daedra Lords he appears very frequently at higher levels.
  • Unlike Ancient Liches and Daedra Lords he has no ranged spells and therefore can't blast himself into obivion with his own attacks.

Spell reflection is a life saver, but shock or magic resistance helps also greatly and plenty of healing spells are recommended, provided one has the chance to use them.
Ranged weapons are almost useless since he is very fast and before the player has reloaded his weapon, he is within close-combat range. Spell absorption helps also less, unless one has a lot of empty magicka which can be restored by the shock spells, and these attacks are quite powerful. Players with a capacity of at most 50 magicka will probably not absorb even a single shock spell before it causes damage.
On the other hand if one has a powerful reflect spell, he will kill himself easily with his own shock attacks. And although he is immune to paralysis, he can be paralyzed if his own spell is refelcted back at him, making him an easy target.

They should not be confused with the Flesh Atronach, nor with the Ash Zombies of Morrowind.

[edit] Daedra

Otherworldly beings from Oblivion. They are fairly challenging adversaries, and can only be harmed by mithril or greater. All daedra can detect invisible foes.

One of the most dangerous foes in the game with formidable fighting abilities in close-combat. Close in quickly to prevent him from using magic too frequently, and backpedal after striking him to avoid his attacks.
Spell reflection/resistance/absorption is a must especially during fights from the distance, for he will use his area effect fireball spell.
He sometimes uses this spell too close and harms or disembodies himself.
Interestingly, the Dremora in Battlespire use the same sound and a similar graphic. A Daedra Lord can thus be considered to be actually a Dremora.

Can be hit with mithril and better.

Close in quickly to prevent the casting of a spell, spell reflection/resistance/absorption is helpful.
Daedroths are especially dangerous for spellcasters, once they are silenced they are in most cases inferior in close-combat, which will result in a quick death.
It should be noted that these Daedroths, unlike the ones in Morrowind and Oblivion, wear armor and use weapons.
