Frost Damage MW
For other uses, see Frost Damage.

Frost Damage is a magical effect that causes elemental damage via the manipulation of ice or cold. This effect is a member of the Destruction school of magic, governed by Willpower.

WeaknessEdit

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.

ResistanceEdit

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.

WeaponsEdit

The tables below contain a base damage value for the corresponding weapon in addition to the enchantment magnitude. Because melee weapon damage varies by attack type (chop, slash, or thrust), the values indicated below are intended as a quick means of item comparison only. For more detailed information refer to individual weapon articles.

Note that the enchantment on some (but not all) "Cruel" and "Dire" weapons are identical due to the "cruel shard_en" and "dire shard_en" enchantment objects in the Construction Set being set to the same magnitude.
