The School of Alteration is one of the six avenues of magical study. This 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.

Alteration's governing attribute is Willpower. The skill is checked whenever you cast a spell from the Alteration School of Magic.
