Fire Resistance nullifies most fire-based damage. Fire Resistance is a status effect that does not change its power as its potency changes.


Grants immunity to damage from fire, blaze fireballs, fire charges, magma blocks, and lava. Negates the fire damage from bows enchanted with Flame and swords enchanted with Fire Aspect, but does not affect the attacks themselves.
