Frost Shield MW
For other uses, see Frost Shield.

Frost Shield is a magical effect, alchemical effect, and a spell that creates a shield of elemental frost around the target's body. The shield increases resistance to Frost Damage, and inflicts damage upon nearby adversaries. Despite the in-game description, this effect does not increase the target's armor rating. Frost 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 frost resistance (e.g., if the target has 15% frost resistance and uses a 20-point effect, the result is 35% frost resistance for the duration). Ten percent of the effect's magnitude corresponds to the damage dealt to nearby opponents.
