Illusion is one of the more subtle schools of magic
. Illusion spells
rarely directly affect the target when used offensively, relying more on either avoiding direct combat through invisibility spells, or by distracting enemies by creating either illusionary copies of the spellcaster
, or making an image of a powerful monster appear to scare one's enemies. If the illusionist have to harm his enemies, it is usually by filling their vision with terrifying visions that will bend and twist their minds, leaving them as hollow shells of their former selves.
