Description Edit

The target creature becomes immune to any energy drain, negative energy or death spells, spell-like abilities, and effects.

Bug Notes Edit

General: The description needs updating to what the spell really does. It actually makes the creature targeted immune to:

  • Negative damage (100% immunity)
  • Death effects
  • Ability decrease effects
  • Negative level effects

Perhaps this description would be more appropriate:

The target creature becomes immune to negative energy damage, energy drain, ability-decreasing effects, and death effects.
  • The EffectDamageImmunityIncrease function hard-coded into the engine is bugged and if a creature has more than 100% immunity to a specific damage type, it actually turns into a vulnerability. For this reason, if you cast Shadow Shield AND Death Ward on the same creature, 100% immunity to negative damage actually turns into a 50% vulnerability to negative damage. It is possible to fix this through scripting by checking if the target is already immune to negative damage before applying the spell effects, if the target is immune, do not apply the EffectDamageImmunityIncrease effect. The following spells scripts require fixing: Death Ward, Mass Death Ward, Negative Energy Protection (cut), and Shadow Shield:

1) Death Ward /Mass Death Ward (NW_S0_DeaWard, NX_s0_massdeaward):

Remove the effects applied by previous castings of (Mass) Death Ward and Negative Energy Protection, check if target is already affected by Shadow Shield, if yes, only apply the other effects, if no, then apply all effects incl. Negative Energy Immunity effect.

2) Negative Energy Protection (NW_S0_NegProt):

Remove the effects applied by previous castings of Negative Energy Protection. Check if target is already affected by Death Ward or Mass Death Ward, if yes, do nothing. Check if target is already affected by Shadow Shield, if yes, only apply the other effects, if no, then apply all effects incl. Negative Energy Immunity effect.

3) Shadow Shield (NW_S0_ShadShld):

Remove the effects applied by previous castings of Shadow Shield. Check if target is already affected by Death Ward, Mass Death Ward or Negative Energy Protection, if yes, only apply the other effects, if no, then apply all effects incl. Negative Energy Immunity effect.

...changing EffectDamageImmunity to EffectDamageResistance(DAMAGE_TYPE_NEGATIVE, 9999, 0);
