Weakness to Common Disease M% for D seconds
This effect reduces the target's resistance to Common Diseases, making the target M% more likely to contract one from an infected enemy or corpse. This effect is only of relevance when it affects the player character, and is not useful as a PC offensive spell. While NPCs can in fact catch diseases (long-term followers in particular should be proactively cured by you after contact with diseased enemies, or their stats may silently drop as the result of infection), combat does not last long enough for you to noticeably affect it by having a diseased enemy turn on another (e.g. with Command Creature) and infect the latter.
- With this spell effect it is actually a lot easier to become infected with Vampirism when playing some of the races which have high disease resistance (e.g. Altmer, Argonian etc.) or after completing the Corprus Cure quest (which gives you 100% Resist Common Disease).
