A wide array of bonuses can be granted by effects. Effects themselves are granted from many sources including: abilities, potions and armour set bonus. An effect is either active or not, regardless of how many sources may grant it. If an effect has a major and minor version, and both are granted, only the major version applies.
By applying bonuses indirectly in this way Elder Scrolls prevents players from massively stacking one type of bonus. It is therefore useful to know where effects are granted to avoid overlap. A list of active effects is shown in the Character Sheet; some may be manually removed before their duration naturally expires.
Below is a list of effects, the bonuses they grant, and the sources that grant it.
* Not all effects can be initiated by the player. Effects marked exist within the game and may be used by NPCs, and especially dungeon or trial bosses.
