For other uses, see Absorb Health.

Absorb Health is a magic effect and a spell that temporarily transfers health from an adversary to the caster, injuring the victim and vitalizing the caster. The caster may exceed his maximum health for the duration. When the effect ends, the caster loses the borrowed health, and the victim regains lost health. If absorb health is reflected, the caster simply steals the health from himself. This effect is a member of the Mysticism school of magic, governed by Willpower. Its base Magicka cost is 8 points.
