Drain Fatigue M points for D seconds

Temporarily reduce the value of the target's Fatigue by M points. The effect lasts for D seconds, after which the damage disappears. Restore Fatigue will not heal drained damage; Dispel may work.


  • This effect can be gained for spell making and enchanting via spells only.
  • If you are trying to knock an NPC's fatigue down to below zero to mimic paralysis, drain fatigue may be better than damage fatigue, since fatigue restores itself rather quickly when damaged, plus it is much less cost effective than draining. Drain fatigue, on the other hand, will prevent the fatigue from restoring, so, when amplified by weakness to magic, can be much more effective than damage fatigue.
  • Ethereal Undead (e.g. Wraiths) are immune to this spell, their fatigue will never be drained.
