* There are two distinct weapons that are both named Silver Flameskewer. One has the item ID "silver flameskewer" and inflicts Fire Damage, the other weapon's ID is "silver shardskewer" and inflicts Frost Damage.



Weakness to Magicka does not affect Fire Damage. Instead, Weakness to Fire must be used to increase one's susceptibility to this effect (it can also be used to counteract resistance, or even immunity if cast with a magnitude of one-hundred or more). Altmer have an innate fifty percent weakness to Fire Damage, as do Frost Atronachs.


Fire Damage is not affected by Resist Magicka. However, it is resisted by both the Resist Fire and the Fire Shield effects (the latter also inflicts ten percent of the effect's magnitude). Dunmer have an innate seventy-five percent resistance to Fire. An otherwise unremarkable Bosmer merchant named Berwen who resides inTel Mora is the only humanoid who is immune to Fire Damage.
