For other instances, see Poison.

Poison is an elemental damage effect that can be alchemical or magical in origin. It is the only form of elemental damage which can be cured, immediately halting the effect. As a magical effect Poison is a member of the Destruction school of magic, governed by Willpower. It has a higher Magicka cost when cast as a spell in comparison to other forms of elemental damage.

WeaknessEdit

Weakness to Magicka does not affect Poison damage. Weakness to Poison must be used to increase one's susceptibility to this effect (it can also be used to counteract resistance, or even immunity if stacked to a magnitude of one-hundred or more). There are no races or creatures have an innate weakness to Poison in Morrowind or the expansion packs.

ResistanceEdit

Poison damage is reduced by the Resist Poison effect, and is not affected by the Resist Magicka effect. Redguards have an innate seventy-five percent resistance to Poison, and Argonians are immune to Poison damage. A Bosmer merchant named Berwen is also immune to Poison.
