Vampires negative fire resistance

Viserys_Varanis
I don't understand why Vampires are supposed to be weak to fire when you see Lamae in the Vampire Quest getting burned and getting up fine.

Is there any explanation for that somewhere in a different Elder Scrolls game?

    Well, you can't make vampires take damage out in broad daylight, so the closest thing they can do is have fire damage. Don't forget, the further you are way from Lamae Bal's bloodline, the weaker your powers are, so you're not gonna be as immune to fire like she is.

    Aren't you getting your blood replaced with Lamae's herself?

    She's the first, most powerful vampire ever. You aren't, just like the Dovahkiin is a less powerful vampire than Daughter of Coldharbor Serana.

    It's simple. Not all vampires are the same

    That may be true in terms of 'Vampire Power' but I think being Dovahkiin vastly more than makes up for it (a little like being an Immortal Vestige does).

    Only Molag Bal can create a "daughter of cold harbour."

    I know lore says only females but in a way couldn’t it include males too? I doubt Molag would care about gender considering Daedric Princes are genderless, and either way his influence is being spread around Nirn.

    Then again rip everyone who didn’t survive his “blessing”.

    I think you misunderstand both of those heroes.

    The dragon born has the power of dragons, not a direct blessing of a daedric prince.

    Outside of the empowerment from the Amulet of Kings, the vestige is simply a mortal with no soul.

    Even as foretold heroes, their power is not really a direct blessing of a God entity

    Just because Lamae was the first doesn’t make her the most powerful.

    I’d argue that Serana and Valerica are more powerful than Lamae. They are Daughters of ColdHarbor too. Difference is they gave themselves to Molag Bal willingly to get their power whereas Lamae was victimized against her will.

    The fact that the only weapon in existence that will really hurt them is Auriel’s Bow blesses with Sun Arrows...literally Akatosh/Auriel weapon, the weapon of a God is the only thing that will really hurt them. Harkon was weaker then both Serana and Valerica since he obviously wasn’t a Daughter if ColdHarbor yet he shrugged off everything except Auriels Bow.

    Lamae is strong, but I don’t think she is the strongest ever. I have my theories that vampires descended from her go on to later make a deal with Clavicus Vile and end up becoming the Vampire Order of Cyrodiil that are able to blend in with humans and are masters of disguise that rise though the political ranks over the centuries unknown to the people 😀

    "Here in his shrine, that they have forgotten. Here do we toil, that we might remember. By night we reclaim, what by day was stolen. Far from ourselves, he grows ever near to us. Our eyes once were blinded, now through him do we see. Our hands once were idle, now through them does he speak. And when the world shall listen, and when the world shall see, and when the world remembers, that world will cease to be. - Miraak
