Version History



1. This will only work on magiceffects that have the MagicDamageFire/Frost/Shock/MagicRitual keywords or spells from vanilla/DG/DB, so unfortunately custom spells without it will fail to register.

2. Only works on 102 NPCs and 77 animals at a time to avoid FPS issues.

3. Incompatible with Burn Freeze Shock Effects, due to obvious reasons.
