Schools of MagicEdit
The School of MysticismEdit
Mysticism experiments with the most arcane aspects of Magicka and expanding these "accidents" into a useful if eclectic range of spells. Because the forces being manipulated by Mysticism are dangerous and unknown, the spell effects are purposefully specific. They include Far Silence and Soul Trap among many others. Buying, creating, and casting spells of mysticism are less expensive for mages skilled in this experimental path.
The School of RestorationEdit
Restoration is devoted to the salubrious and soothing powers of Magicka, evident in spells like cure poison and Troll's Blood. Buying, creating, and casting Spell devised to heal a target are less expensive for mages of this path.
The School of ThaumaturgyEdit
Thaumaturgy concentrates on exposing or manipulating known forces and objects within their natural laws. It is evident in Spells like Levitation and Detection. No Thaumaturgical spell can permanently change the appearance or structure of a force or object. Buying, creating, and casting spells of thaumaturgy are less expensive for mages skilled in this path. This skill also exists in Battlespire.
The School of IllusionEdit
Illusion works with magicka in its capacity to camouflage, illuminate, or obscure without changing an object's structure. Invisibility and Light are two of the School's most basic spells. Buying, creating, and casting a spell of illumination are less expensive for mages skilled in this path.
The School of DestructionEdit
The School is concerned with the purely destructive capabilities of Magicka evident in spells like Fireball and Acidic Field. Buying, creating, and casting spell devised to harm or destroy a target is less expensive for mages skilled in this path.
The School of AlterationEdit
The School concerns itself with magicka's ability to change, often radically, the structure and composition of any object. Unlike the School of Illusion, Alteration deals with actual change, not the appearance of it. Slowfalling and Shield are two classic spells of the School of Alteration. Buying, creating, and casting spells of alteration are less expensive for mages skilled in this path.
