The Creature Summary table in this article currently lists The Pale Lady as Type:Undead (as does the trail at the top of the page), but she is also listed as a Wispmother and part of the Wisp faction. Since Wisps and Wispmothers are considered Monsters, rather than Undead, I'm wondering if The Pale Lady is a special case of creature in this sense, or if part of the information listed is incorrect. I've tried looking in the CSList, which I have only a very basic understanding of, and it seems to me that the Undead information is incorrect, but since I'm not sure about this, I'd prefer not to change it myself. Can someone with a better understanding of the CSList (or the CK) look into this and verify the information so it can be corrected if need be? ABCface 23:17, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Nevermind, I just fixed it. It should be correct now. ABCface 20:17, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Oblivion reference?[edit]

Is the name of this NPC a reference to to NPC of the same name in Oblivion? --Darkness has risen... 05:37, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

I've just read through the short journals of the NPCs involved in her quest, and there doesn't seem to be anything referencing OB's Pale Lady. It's possible there's another book somewhere involving her, but I'm not sure. It may just be coincidence. If it's not, I can't find any evidence linking them other than the name, though it does seem possible. ABCface 20:45, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

Exploit for killing the Pale Lady[edit]

Doubt it's worth putting on the main page, but fighting the Pale Lady at a relatively low level (so long as one can withstand a hit or two) can be fairly easy by exploiting the ability to banish her. When she's banished by placing the Pale Blade on the pedestal, then resummoned by removing it, her health seems to still be damaged from any hits received before being banished - apparently she's teleported away and back, instead of just being respawned each time. The upshot is that the dragonborn can take the sword, hit her a few times, put the sword on the pedestal to banish her, rest to heal up, and repeat until she's dead. I'm not sure if she heals at all when you rest (I had a follower that kept hacking away when I banished her during my test, so I was never sure exactly how much health she had when she left), so it might take a certain amount of damage between banishings to work. The shades seem to stick around when she's banished, but they're a fair bit less threatening.MuddlingThrough (talk) 01:53, 23 November 2012 (GMT)
