Spell tomes from the various schools of magic, as seen on the loading screen.

For the Oblivion plug-in , see Spell Tomes (Oblivion).

Spell Tomes are spell-containing books in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Upon reading a tome, the specific spell contained within is learned, but the tome is destroyed in the process. Spell Tomes may only be read once.

AcquisitionEdit

Spell Merchants, members of The College of Winterhold and Court Wizards, such as Farengar Secret-Fire, typically sell most, but not all, spell tomes. Spell tomes may also be found as randomized dungeon loot, or may be stolen or looted from hostile magic-users. Spell tomes can also be crafted using ruined books at the Atronach Forge.

Destruction Skill level determines which spell tomes merchants will have available for sale. Specifically, merchants begin selling apprentice tomes at level 15, adept tomes at level 40 and expert tomes at level 65. Master-level tomes are unlocked through quests that become available at a skill level of 90 or 100. Due to this randomization, it is impossible to provide locations for all tomes.

Spell tomes have a symbol to determine what kind of magic it teaches. For example, Conjuration tomes display an Oht symbol, while Destruction tomes display the image of a hand ingulfed in flames.

Unlike in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, it is no longer possible to create new spells; therefore, there is now a finite number of spells. Also unlike Oblivion, there are no Mysticism spells. They have been added to the Illusion, Alteration and Conjuration schools of magic.
