Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The magnitude directly corresponds to a percent increase in Frost Damage subsequently inflicted (e.g. ten points is equal to +10% damage).
- There is a one-second delay after casting a weakness effect before it is active. Therefore, if using a spell that simultaneously casts both weakness and damage effects, the weakness component will not be applied the first time it is cast.
Resistance[edit | edit source]
Weakness to Frost and Resist Frost are opposites, but equal. If they are present with the same magnitude, the two effects cancel (e.g. a person with ten points of resistance and ten points of weakness has no net effect). The magnitude of these effects can be subtracted from one another to determine a net magnitude. For example:
30 weakness - 10 resistance = net effect 20 weakness
40 resistance - 25 weakness = net effect 15 resistance
In Morrowind, immunity is synonymous with one hundred points of resistance, and Weakness to Frost functions as such. For example, inflicting twenty points of Weakness to Frost upon an immune creature such as an Ancestor Ghost results in eighty points of Resist Frost. A hundred points of weakness completely negates immunity.
