Does Absorb Health deal extra damage?[edit]

Let's say I have a sword with 20 damage and 10 absorb health. Will the sword deal 20 or 30 damage to the enemy? Aroddo 17:25, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

Yes, it will deal a total of 30. 00:22, 21 December 2011 (UTC)


Should Ebony Blade be on this page? — Unsigned comment by The Silencer (talkcontribs) at 01:30 on 5 March 2012‎

My opinion is yes it should be listed under the artifacts that have an Absorb Health effect. I will add it unless someone objects. Lord EydvarTalk 02:14, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Does Absorb Health scale with difficulty?[edit]

My weapon has 20 absorb health, and I play on Master, so will it only absorb 10? Just want to make sure.-- 03:27, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Testing reveals that the damage from Absorb Health is scaled by difficulty in the same way as other damage, but the healing is not scaled by difficulty. Both are scaled by the target's magic resistance. Lid-Mop (talk) 04:59, 31 July 2014 (GMT)

Fixed Location?[edit]

Broken Fang Cave, just slightly west of Sleeping Tree Camp in Whiterun hold, in the back room on the enchanting table I found a steel sword of Absorb Health. If this is a fixed location can it be mentioned on this page?-- 03:22, 6 February 2013 (GMT)

Not actually available at "beginning" of game.[edit]

Absorb health is actually only available on the leveled list at level 7 - which is a short distance for most but if you go enchanting first you won't actually find this enchant available before then. 05:21, 12 January 2014 (GMT)SomGuy

Absorb Health and Frost Damage Bug[edit]

If you combine Absorb Health with Frost Damage in a weapon the charge count indicated at the enchanting altar will be wrong. The weapon will have fewer actual charges then indicated. This gets worse when using a fortify enchanting potion. For instance a potion with x% increase will cause the weapon to burn through the charge in well under the stated number of hits. 15:21, 12 February 2014 (GMT)
