This page says the weakness effect must be active before the damage effect, and can't be combined into one spell. However, I am wondering if this is correct because there are a lot of weapons in the game that combine the two effects. If they didn't work simultaneously, why would the game combine them on in-game weapons? For example, Staff of Conflagration (looted off a necromancer) does weakness to fire and fire damage. 18:42, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

It is indeed correct, and why the developers made weapons like those is beyond me as well, altough it is usefull for a second strike, because the weakness effect is likely to be in effect already from the first hit. KrazorM 20:23, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
