A Heretic

Heretics are those opposed to Sheogorath and wish to see him dethroned. Therefore, they are enemies of the law and must live in rural areas. Heretics make camp on the Mania side of the Isles, and like everything else in the Isles, they have an opposite of equal status to them: the Zealots of Dementia.

Heretics usually rely on Conjuration spells, similar to the Zealots of Dementia. They also use Destruction spells and some Restoration. They tend to use Blunt weapons rather than Blades.

There are eight different varieties of Heretic: Heretic Crusader, Heretic Witch, Heretic Lackey, Heretic Novitiate, Heretic Soldier, Heretic Warpriest, Heretic Watchman and Transformed Heretic.

It is possible for the player to disguise themself as a Heretic if wearing both their robes and hoods in order to deceive other Heretics. This works only at a distance, and if the player gets too close they will see through the disguise and attack.

Spells[edit]

All Heretics have a special Heretic Birthsign that provides them with the following permanent bonus:

They also have a Firm Beliefs lesser power:

  • Dispel 300 pts on self
    • The Heretic AI is scripted to dispel any mind-affecting effect affecting them. Because this behavior is scripted, they will dispel even disabling effects like Calm and Demoralize that technically should actually prevent them from taking any action. The only solution is to use spells that exceed the magnitude that can be dispelled by the Dispel power they utilize.

In addition, all Heretics have a set of leveled Heretic Spells, including:

"Boss" Heretics have an identical spell set to regular Heretics with the exception of a higher-level Summon Hunger spell.

Notes[edit]

  • There are semi-rare instances when a Heretic won't be hostile towards you, such as after having completed the Knights of the Nine questline they may only remark "You're the Divine Crusader!" and let that be the end of it.
  • The Arch-Mages Robe is identical to the robes worn by the Heretics, but does not provide the same camouflage effect.
