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

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