Drain Health M points for D seconds

Temporarily lowers the Health of the target. If the victim is still alive when the spell expires, they will regain the lost Health.


  • This effect will in fact deliver a killing blow if the subject's Health is reduced to 0. A good way to kill enemies with less than 100 Health is to Drain Health 100 pts for 1 sec. And you can spice up the spell with Soultrap for 1 sec or even double the effect with Weakness to Magicka 100 pts for 1 sec. This trick can be somewhat costly, magicka-wise - but Drain Health in fact has the lowest base cost of the Destruction School and not many creatures are resistant to Magicka (Drain Health is not elemental damage).
