Trivia[edit | edit source]

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Weakness to Magicka does not affect Frost Damage. Instead, Weakness to Frost must be used to increase one's susceptibility to this effect (it can also be used to counteract resistance or immunity). Altmer have an innate twenty-five percent weakness to Frost Damage. Flame Atronachs and Shalk have a sixty percent weakness to this effect.

Resistance[edit | edit source]

Frost Damage is not affected by Resist Magicka. However, it is resisted by both the Resist Frost and the Frost Shield effects (the latter also inflicts ten percent of the effect's magnitude upon nearby adversaries). Nords are innately immune to frost damage.
