Resist Fire M% for D seconds

Increase the target's resistance to Fire Damage. The damage taken by a target with 50% Resist Fire will be halved. All fire damage is nullified at 100%.

In order to be effective, the Resist Fire effect must be active before fire damage is incurred. Therefore, if the resistance and damage effects are combined into a single spell or other delivery method, the target will take full fire damage.

It is possible, although unnecessary, to have a higher than 100% resistance to fire. This may be achieved through potions and enchanted items.


  • This effect is not normally available as a spell. However, you can gain access to it through special racial abilities, in which case custom spells and enchantments can be created. The only race that provides access to Resist Fire is Dark Elf.
  • This effect can be useful to vampires, since they have a weakness to fire.
  • This effect does not provide any protection against lava. The lava encountered in the Planes of Oblivion is technically treated as water that does damage, rather than as fire. A Construction Set effect Resist Water Damage would protect against lava, but it is not available anywhere in the game.
