Locations

Marked for Death is a shout that temporarily reduces an enemy's health and armor rating, making them more vulnerable to physical damage. Each word further decreases the target's armor rating by 25 points, which means they will take 3% extra physical damage per word. All three ranks have a duration of 60 seconds.

This shout's effects can be mitigated by magic resistance.

NotesEdit

  • This shout can cause the target's armor rating to become negative, which results in them taking increased damage from all physical sources.
  • As with other shouts, Companion's Insight will protect followers from the effects of Marked for Death.

BugsEdit

  • The voice acting for this shout is incorrect; the character will say "Lun Lun" for the second rank and "Lun Lun Aus" for the third rank.
  • The word wall of "Krii" has some of the text cut off. Both the "R" in "ROKei" and the "M" in "MOROKei," though still legible, are only half letters. Based on its translation, it is probable that "ROKei" is actually "MOROKei" and the line that begins with "MOROKei" is actually "KO MOROKei."
  • The word wall in Forsaken Cave has been known to go through all cinematics, with the player getting a message saying they have learned the word. However the word does not become available for the player to unlock. Leaving the cave and returning does not allow the cinematic to re-run.
  • The target's armor rating does not recover after the shout ends, and is damaged by 75 per second, rather than 75 total. This allows you to stack the shout multiple times on the same enemy to deal increasingly higher damage. Conversely, if the shout hits your follower or other NPCs, they will permanently take increased damage from physical attacks.
    Mod Notes: The damage armor effect does not have the "Recover" flag.
  • As of version 1.6.629.0.8 of the Official Skyrim Special Edition Patch, the damage health effect reduces the target's health by 1/2/3, rather than draining it by 1/2/3 per second.
    Mod Notes: Marked for Death - Health also had the "Recover" flag set when the armor effect was fixed.
  • Learning Drain Vitality before learning all three words of Marked for Death may cause Marked for Death to become glitched so no newer words may be learned.
  • Learning a word of Marked for Death after installing Dawnguard causes a glitched shout to appear in the Shouts menu. It is named Drain Vitality, but has all three words of Marked for Death. The recharge is 12,12,12 and the bugged description says "Drains 1 points of Health per second for 20 seconds. Drains 1 points of Magicka per second for 20 seconds. Drains 1 points of". Using the shout causes the effect listed, although no words are actually shouted by the character and NPCs do not become hostile. See the bug section of the page Drain Vitality for fixes.
