Well, seeing as how my favorite spell in the entirety of Skyrim is the Whirlwind Cloak spell from the Dragonborn DLC, and because there doesn't seem to be much information about it across both UESP and TESW, I figured I'd compile a list of facts and info I've managed to find here. This Factbook will be updated whenever I come across new information about this truly unique spell.
The Whirlwind Cloak spell can be acquired after completing a radiant quest called Wind and Sand for quest-giver Neloth. The quest requires a Destruction skill level of 40 and the side quest Expirimental Subject to be completed. After fulfilling those requirements, the Wind and Sand quest may be offered to you by Neloth. It is a simple fetch quest that can take you to multiple locations. Upon completion of the quest, the spell tome for Whirlwind Cloak will be available for purchase from Talvas Fathryon.
Whirlwind Cloak Facts
Author's note: Feel free to add facts in the reply section! If I can confirm it works, it will likely go into this list, further expanding our knowledge of this spell.
I'd like to know, if cloak spells work with werewolf form like you described, does it also work for vampire lords ? What I mean is if you cast the whirlwind cloak and then turn into vampire lord form, does it carry on like it does with the werewolf transformation ?
Re-casting the Cloak automatically tosses any target back that is in the immediate range of the cloak when it is put up.
I have seen this stated before however (after hours upon hours of using this spell) I can definitively say that the toss is not automatic when you re-cast the spell, effectively re-casting doesn't do anything but restart the duration.
I play on Xbox 360 so other versions of the game may be different.
Hmm. interesting. I don't have the 360 version, so maybe it's either not automatic or has some kind of chance associated with it.
I know that specific one came from a source elsewhere - I know that one I didn't come up with on my own (this just happens to be one I haven't tested much,(same with the 'item throwing' one.) I don't remember exactly what happened its been years since I made this). But I went digging and unfortunately couldn't find it (apparently search engines pull up this page when looking for the spell. ).
Later today I'll have time to go on Skyrim and make sure for certain if this works or not.
Okay so I went and tested it, like you said it isn't flinging enemies away automatically when recast. I turned the difficulty all the way down and let my character get surrounded and cornered by some bandits, they were only flung away by exiting/entering the cloaks range.
I'll make changes to the list, thanks for catching that.
