Unable to dual wield magic in Skyrim now?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
All of a sudden I can no longer dual wield magic in Skyrim. Is anyone else having this problem? I've tried reverting back to older saves and the only one I can still dual wield magic in is all the way back at the beginning of the game. I hope there as a fix, my character build relies heavily on magic... mad.gif

I am having no problem duel wielding magic at all. I know I am of no help, but how are you trying to do it? Using the favorites or the hot keys 1-8?

Turns out you were definitely a help. You inspired me to set a new hot key and all of sudden dual wield magic started working again. thumb.gif

Try using the hotkeys 1-8 (if you dont know how, while hovering over your spell in the favorites list, hit button 1 or 2 or whatever 1-8). that will set the spell or weapon to equip without having to pause the game and go to favorites. Then when you equip it (say button 1), you hit the button twice to equip it in both hands. Try it that way and see how it works.

Can you have two different spells in each hand, If so how do you do that?

Yes, you can have one item (spell or weapon) equipped in each hand. I haven't figured it out yet with the hotkeys, but using the favorite list, you just right click for one hand and left click for the other hand.

sometimes the first person view doesn't display the second hand in dual wielding spells. Yet pressing both buttons to cast cast as though it's there.

maybe this is what you're suffering from. I get this on occasions.
