Fire Shield MW
For other uses, see Fire Shield.

Fire Shield is a magical effect, alchemical effect, and a spell that creates a shield of elemental fire around the target's body. The shield increases resistance to Fire Damage, and inflicts damage upon nearby adversaries. Despite the in-game description, this effect does not increase the target's armor rating. Fire Shield is a member of the Alteration school of magic, governed by Willpower. Its base Magicka cost is 3 points.

This effect's magnitude directly corresponds to the increase in fire resistance (e.g., if the target has 10% fire resistance and uses a 25-point effect, the result is 35% fire resistance for the duration). Ten percent of the effect's magnitude corresponds to the damage dealt to nearby opponents.
