Arcanum Spells

Spoiler
Arcanum spells are quite powerful and rely on the Arcanum skill. You need to find spellbooks to learn these spells - they cannot be learned on levelup. Scribing Arcanum or Eldritch spellbooks can drive the scriber insane, which can be fixed with the Sane Mind spell or with enough sleep afterwards.

Hermetic Gag: Silences a group.
Protect vs. Plants: Repelling field vs. all plant attacks.
Power Nimbus: Restores hit points, vitality, and morale to entire party.

Teleport: Paired with the Dimension Door spell, teleports party to the location set by the Dimension Door spell.

SPICON12.png
Eldritch Spells

Spoiler
This hidden spell page can be unlocked by asking wizards you meet about it. Scribing Eldritch and Arcanum spellbooks can drive the scriber insane, which can be fixed with the Sane Mind spell or with enough sleeping afterwards. Eldritch spells are the most powerful attack spells in the whole game.
