Main article: Effects (Morrowind)

Weakness to Shock is a magical effect, racial ability, and spell that increases susceptibility to elemental Shock Damage. The magnitude directly corresponds to a percent increase in Shock Damage subsequently inflicted (e.g. ten points is equal to +10% damage). This effect is a member of the Destruction school of magic, governed by Willpower.

There is a one-second delay after casting a weakness effect before it is active. Therefore, if using a spell that simultaneously casts both weakness and damage effects, the weakness component will not be applied the first time it is cast.

Altmers have an innate 25% Weakness to Shock.


Weakness to Shock and Resist Shock are opposites, but equal. If they are present with the same magnitude, the two effects cancel (e.g. a person with ten points of resistance and ten points of weakness has no net effect). The magnitude of these effects can be subtracted from one another to determine a net magnitude. For example:

30 weakness - 10 resistance = net effect 20 weakness
40 resistance - 25 weakness = net effect 15 resistance

In Morrowind, immunity is synonymous with one hundred points of resistance, and Weakness to Shock functions as such. For example, inflicting twenty points of Weakness to Shock upon an immune creature such as a Hunger results in eighty points of Resist Shock. A hundred points of weakness completely negates immunity.
