Soul Trap is an Active ability from Soul Magic tree. The spell deals damage to enemy and if the target dies fills a soul gem. All single player TES fans should remember this spell. It is one of several ways to fill the Soul Gem in ESO.

In order to capture the soul you need to have empty Soul Gem in your inventory. If the target dies while the spell is active – the soul will be captured. If the target survives – the soul will not be captured. It does not matte how the target dies. It can loose all Health because of Soul Trap or because of someone’s attack. The soul will be absorbed anyway.

Souls of different creatures require different Soul Gems. If the creature is weak you will need a small soul gem to capture the soul. If it is strong you will need big gem. If you do not have empty gem you will not be able to capture the soul. Make sure you have several empty Soul Gems before starting to explore surrounding world.

One more reason to use the spell is that it will allow you to progress in Soul Magic and master rather useful spells in future.

This ability can be Morphed into
