Online:Disease Damage

Elder Scrolls Online: Effects

Disease Damage is a type of physical damage. It is somewhat rare, mostly only being seen on some of the Nightblade and Necromancer skills' morphs, or when attacked by Zombies and their ilk. Can cause the Status Effect Diseased, which inflicts the Minor Defile debuff for 4 seconds, decreasing their healing received by 8%.
