Destruction is a skill in The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall and one of the six formal avenues of magical study. Destruction spells are those with a primary purpose of causing damage to a target, such as Fireball or Acidic Field. Buying, creating, and casting a spell devised to harm or destroy a target is less expensive for mages skilled in this. Its governing attribute is Willpower.
It is a primary skill for Battlemages, and major skill for Mages, Sorcerers, and Spellswords, and a minor skill for Bards and Nightblades. The Dark Brotherhood, Mages Guild, Akatosh Chantry, Order of Arkay, and Temple of Kynareth offer training.
