For other uses, see Sanctuary.

Sanctuary is a magic effect and a spell that increases the target's chance of dodging attacks. It impacts hand-to-hand combat, and evading attacks made with melee or ranged weapons, but has no effect on magic. Sanctuary is a member of the Illusion school of magic, governed by Personality. Its base Magicka cost is 1 point.

This effect's magnitude is added directly to the target's percent chance of evading physical attacks. For example, a person with a 15% chance who uses a 10-point effect will have a 25% chance for the duration. The portion added by the effect is not influenced by Fatigue. Sanctuary has a greater impact on the chance of evasion than fortifying Agility or Luck attributes by the same amount (even when fully rested) for the same Magicka base cost.
