"This effect lowers the value of a victim's fatigue. Any derived attributes are recalculated. Fatigue does not return to its original value at the end of the spell's duration; it restores normally, or may be restored with a restore fatigue spell or potion. The magnitude is the units of fatigue lost each second of duration."
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Construction Set[src]

  • This effect can quickly reduce an opponent's Fatigue, making it particularly useful during hand-to-hand combat.
  • Unlike Drain Fatigue this effect can not knock down an adversary (see Bugs).
  • The debilitating benefits of reducing an opponent's Fatigue include lowering their ability to block or dodge attacks, land a hit with a weapon, and successfully cast spells.
  • Poison is the only ingredient in Morrowind or expansion packs that consists of a Damage Fatigue effect.
