Wait I read the other post but I'm still confused... I swear that you can't dual cast different spells? Doesn't it have to be the same to get the extra damage...?

ohhh but u can =D aaaaand i love it xD , u can use toe the same in each hand if u wish, or u can use different combos, its just matter of clicking a L and R on the spell or wepon for that matter to what hand u want them to use it in
as for dmaage see combos work better for you dmg wise soon as i get frost will be trying that out too ^^

Zacaroni, you're right, it's not dual casting (unless there's a mod that changes this) so you don't get the extra damage from the perk, and presumably don't get the stun bonus from that perk.

This shows a bit more clearly the difference. A true dual cast = both hands closer together, with a single stream of sparks/flame/etc: http://oi58.tinypic.com/2qxyo1s.jpg In third person, like the images above, it's less easy to see the difference, but if you look closely, the arms are in different positions: http://oi57.tinypic.com/jv5ic6.jpg left pic is dual casting flames, right pic is single casting flames and single casting sparks at the same time.

in reference to mods, im not using atm , and originally i was just happy to get the dual cast perk to even work , and your pics, Gnewna do show it better more close up view, but in my mind dual cast spells works for me if i have to many mobs at say like 3 i hit r or just hit both mouse buttons same time and blast the enemy with spark and fire and do a spray effect , but i guess everyone has the own idea's what condsidered dual cast, each to their own, ^^ zarcaroni, mess around with L and R when in game and see what works for you test out the dmg, i dont have stagger perk yet, but i do have one each in spark n fire perk so i get 10% acccording to description, and they do die a lot quicker than previously, im only level 8-9 ish atm on my mage, and purely cloth type even have a fire staff which picked up off a another mage i killed, which was nice, gnewna pretty much right anyway , just when i throw fire and sparks same time, thats my dual cast for me =D ... ;p

That's what I thought. By dual casting I thought people meant that they were using different spells but they were looking and behaving like the were the same (hands in the middle, doing extra damage etc.), but I knew you could use 2 different spells at the same time.
