Enchanting description: Absorb <mag> points of stamina.
Absorb Stamina (a.k.a. Drain Stamina) transfers <mag> points of Stamina from the target to the person wielding the weapon. On the target, the effect is comparable to Damage Stamina; on the attacker, the effect is comparable to Restore Stamina.
Two versions of Absorb Stamina are actually available for enchanting. The stats above are for the most common version of the effect. A second version is only available from one item: the Drainheart Sword. The sword can be disenchanted, meaning that its effect can be used for custom enchantments. The stats for this second version of the effect are:
