The school of Thaumaturgy is one of the six avenues of magical study. This school concentrates on exposing or manipulating known forces and objects within their natural laws. This is evident in spells like Levitate and Water Walking. Buying, creating, and casting spells of thaumaturgy are less expensive for mages skilled in this path.
Thaumaturgy's governing attribute is Willpower. The skill is checked whenever you cast a spell from the Thaumaturgy school of magic.

* The effect "Pacify: Humanoid" does not work on human enemies listed as "Humanoids" in the bestiary, which instead require application of the effect "Charm" in order to be pacified. "Pacify: Humanoid" instead applies to other humanoid enemies, including centaurs, gargoyles, giants, harpies, imps, nymphs, orcs, spriggans, wereboars, and werewolves. "Charm" applies to human enemies, but has no effect on non-hostile town NPCs.
† You cannot climb any obstacles while Levitate is active.
