- Shock Damage is one of the enchantments available for making a custom mage's staff (it is also found on random generic staves).
- When cast at a target, Shock Damage appears as a lightning bolt that travels twice as fast as other magic effects. Shock Damage's projectile speed is set to 2.0; all other effects in the game have a projectile speed of 1.0.
- In general, there are very few things that resist Shock Damage (Storm Atronachs and Spriggans being the prime exceptions). In particular, almost all daedra are vulnerable to Shock damage. See Creature Resistances for a complete summary of weaknesses and resistances to Shock Damage.
