The question is in the title. Some active abilities have passive effects when they are slotted - for example a nightblade gets minor vitality for simply having Swallow Soul slotted, or one can gets additional max magicka when they have Inner Light slotted. The abilities I'm curious about however are weapon active abilities, like Absorb Magic under the one-handed and shield skills, when you have another weapon, like a frost staff, equipped. Absorb Magic gives you more damage blocked and reduced block cost while slotted. Now I know that you would not be able to activate the ability to absorb a projectile attack and heal from it, but would the passive slot effect still be there if I had a frost staff instead of a one-handed weapon and shield equipped? I don't think this will affect most builds, but I feel like this could be useful for some builds out there (specifically one I'm working on right now that's a little bit... unique). Does anyone have the answer or ability to test this for me?
