Main article: Effects (Morrowind)

Water Breathing is a magical effect and spell that temporarily allows the caster to breathe water as if it were air. When this effect expires the Nerevarine's oxygen meter returns fully replenished. All creatures have an innate and permanent Water Breathing capability, and all Argonians can cast a temporary Water Breathing spell. This effect does not have a magnitude, it is always 100% effective if successfully cast. It is a member of the Alteration school of magic, governed by Willpower.


First Effect ingredients can be consumed raw for the effect. Otherwise they must be combined using Alchemy.
