Effects[edit | edit source]

When cast on self, Call to Arms gives a 25-point boost to one-handed, two-handed, archery, health, and stamina for ten minutes. This spell is cast with both hands and requires time to charge, and affects a large area (100) around the caster. It will augment the abilities both friend and foe, so use of the ability prior to combat is advised.

Usefulness[edit | edit source]

  • Without the Master Of The Mind perk, Call To Arms does not affect undead, so casting it during a vampire attack is a particularly good strategy for defending the townspeople.
  • This spell is useful for those focusing on the Conjuration school of magic.
    • The player can easily have 5 or more followers. A regular follower, a non-humanoid follower, Dead Thralls, Dremora Lords or Elemental Thralls (Twin Souls perk) and a quest related follower.
    • The above number can jump to 8 or more followers if the Dead Thralls are conjurers or necromancers who summon their own servants, the regular follower is a conjurer or necromancer and the quest related followers are conjurers or necromancers.
  • The spell can allow the allied soldiers during the Civil War to take or defend a location without very much help from the player, even on the Master difficulty
  • With the proper equipment the player can craft potions fortifying the strength of this spell in a magnitude greater than the 100% available normally (Elixir of Illusion).
  • Casting it in the middle of Whiterun is a very effective method to increase the Illusion skill if it was turned legendary, making it incredibly good for power-leveling.
