Baltham's Insight is a novice-level Mysticism spell added by the fourth plug-in to The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Spell Tomes.


As with all Spell Tomes, Baltham's Insight spawns randomly depending on multiple factors, such as the character's level and spell level.

However, for the best odds of finding a Spell Tome, search boss-level chests in Necromancer and Conjurer lairs.


The effects of the spell are:

  • Detect Life 150 pts for 5 sec on self. This is helpful when trying to see whats around the bend without spending much magicka.

The magicka cost of the spell is 24.
