Magic abilities and spells can be obtained by using their respective scrolls. If you have sufficient magicka, the spell's cost will be deducted from your magicka in exchange for the spell's effect. Some spells are cast on yourself, while others require a hostile target. The magic effect used will show whether the spell affects you or an enemy. Continued use of a spell will increase your skill in its corresponding school of magic.

  • Self-Targeting spells can be useful to counter the effect of Glacier Curse, as you can repeatedly spend magicka, delaying the damage until the effect runs out.
  • Blood Spirit simply deals damage.
  • The effect of Camp Magicka is redundant, since magicka already regenerates when camping.
  • Unlike Daedric Weapon, Doom Hammer does not create and equip a weapon like the description would imply.
  • The effect of Dead to Dust is unclear, since none of the enemies are canonically undead.
  • Deft Security and Disarm Trap make reference to a "security" skill that is not present in the game.
