Destruction

The School of Destruction involves harnessing the energies of fire, frost and shock. This skill makes it easier to cast spells like Fireball, Ice Spike, and Lightning Bolt.

Destruction magic provides many means of inflicting damage on enemies. Destruction spells use elements (fire, frost, or shock) and pure magic to damage health; an enemy’s magicka and stamina can also be reduced. Increasing this skill reduces magicka cost when casting destruction spells. The Destruction skill tree has a total of 14 perks, requiring a total of 17 perk points to fill.
