Mysticism is a magic arts skill that manipulates magic and forces in the world. It includes spells that absorb, reflect, and dispel magic, as well as the ability to move objects, sense nearby life, and bind souls into stones for future use. The Leyawiin Mages Guild specializes in Mysticism. Mysticism is one of the six schools of Magicka. Casting it exhausts Magicka.

Usefulness[edit | edit source]

Mysticism is ideal for sneaks due to the detect life spells. Players that like to recharge their magic weapons often will find Soul Trap spells useful as well. Reflect spells and Absorb spells are not very useful because they only go to 20% even at very high levels. Mysticism helps raise Intelligence which in turn helps raise total Magicka.
