Absorb health is permanent, not temporary
*Another way of obtaining a Damage Health effect is with [[Morrowind:Absorb Health|Absorb Health]]. Absorb Health spells cost the same amount of magicka as Damage Health, but have the added benefit of restoring your health. When creating enchanted items, Absorb Health is also a far better choice for non-elemental damage
. However, the Absorb Health effect has a limited lifetime, whereas the Damage Health effect is permanent.
