Resist <Element> M% for D seconds
These effects decrease the damage dealt by the four elemental damage effects, Fire Damage, Frost Damage, Poison, and Shock Damage. M is the percentage of damage reduction. At 100% you will be immune to that element.
Some Races have natural resistance to certain elements. Argonians have 100% Resist Poison, Dunmer have 75% Resist Fire, Nords have 100% Resist Frost and 50% Resist Shock, and Redguards have 75% Resist Poison. Altmer, on the other hand, have weaknesses to most elements (-50% to Fire, and -25% to Frost and Shock), so spells or items that counteract these weaknesses will be significant for an Altmer character. Note that a spell of Weakness to Element whose magnitude is equal to or greater to any Resist Element effect currently active will completely nullify it, and any subsequent elemental damage will not be affected by it.
The following ingredients can be used to create potions of Resist Element:
|Resist Fire||Resist Frost||Resist Poison||Resist Shock|
* These are first-effect ingredients, so just eating them raw will give you a small dose of the effect.
