Light is a craftable spell in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind that creates a glowing light around the target. The target may be oneself or another character/creature, and the light will last up to 60 seconds or until the target dies. With a casting area of 30, a duration of 30 seconds, and a magnitude of 20, the cost of this spell would be 9.23 MagickaIcon (calculated from a base cost of 0.20). If the spell does not hit a character/creature, the spell will have no effect.


  • This light may be used as an aid for navigation in dark passageways, but the player should take note that doing so would negate the stealth ability. A more desirable means of seeing in the dark would be to use Night-Eye.
  • An alternative to using magicka to obtain light in dark spaces is to carry a light source such as a torch or lantern; however, the player would have to give up the use of a two-handed weapon or a shield to do so.
