The school of Destruction is one of the six avenues of magical study. This school is concerned with the purely destructive capabilities of magicka, evident in spells like Fireball and Ice Storm. Buying, creating, and casting a spell devised to harm or destroy a target are less expensive for mages skilled in this path.

This skill is increased at 2x rate.

Destruction's governing attribute is Willpower. The skill is checked whenever you cast a spell from the Destruction school of magic.
