Does the Orc’s berserker ability work for spells


I tested this and my initial observation was that it doesn't.

However, I only used the starting destruction spell flames as I didnt want to progress too far before finding out my Orc Mage was not viable. Using flames made it difficult to see if a 2x bonus was occurring.

Am I correct in assuming the berserker ability does not affect spells?

The strategy guide confirms that it does not affect spells (emphasis mine):

Berserk: For 60 seconds, you take half damage, and inflict double damage in melee combat.

Melee combat consisting of one-handed and two-handed weapons, not spells or bows.
