I tried actively meditating with a non-SC shield / weapon equipped, the shield / weapon dropped (just like as if I was casting a mage spell). My question is, would I still be able to passively meditate (ie. MR bonus) with the non-SC shield / weapon equipped? Or does the non-SC shield / weapon behave exactly like non-meddable armor, and effectively nullify any MR bonus from meditation skill? In other words, if you use a non-SC shield and/or weapon, does it mean taking up Meditation is useless? (ie. no passive meditation hence no MR bonus) Thanks for any replies.
