All magic users in Might and Magic Tribute start with the generic skill of Spellcasting'. Students know this skill at the lowest level when the game begins. Explorers get the chance to learn it later, except when they choose to become a Knight, but won't be able to master the skill beyond the rank of expert.
Spellcasting is the basic ability to cast spells. Simple damaging spells, healing, illumination and protection are included. Some of the spells increase in effectiveness with higher spellcasting levels, others with knowledge and higher rank in the various schools of magic and the Identify Monster skill.
Expert rank in spellcasting must be achieved before a player character can learn any other magic skill.
The spellcasting skill can be aquired at the following guilds:
Mastery of the skill influences its effectiveness.
There is some variation per spell.

|Mana Bolt||A Mana Bolt is a blast of magical energy cast to hurt a single opponent. The bolt always hits and the damage it deals will take form from one of the 10 magic schools (Fire Bolt, Lightning Bolt, Ice Bolt, Rock Shard, Spirit Arrow, Shock Wave, Mind Blast, Dark Bolt, Shadow Dart, Light Bolt). The caster does not actively choose the form of a Mana Bolt. It will automatically manifest in the most favorable way, from the caster's point of view. When casting this spell, the caster`s ID Monster skill will be tested for the target creature and if successfull will help in choosing the most favorable form of the bolt. If the caster does not know any magic skill beyond Spellcasting the bolt will take a random form and do 1 point of damage plus 1 point per skill level in Spellcasting.||Cost: 5 SP

At first the spell only shows creatures in the terrain without differentiating friend from foe and the light produced is fairly weak. Aquisition of and degree of mastery in the elemental magics will determine the strength of the spell in various locations. Fire magic determines strength indoors, except from underground dungeons. Earth magic determines underground effect. Air magic determines strength of the spell in the outdoors and water magic underwater and out to sea. There may also be certain special areas where different magic skills will determine effect. Knowledge of an appropriate magic skill will allow the spell to differentiate between friend and foe. Expert level in the corresponding skill will increase brightness of the light and reveal treasure. Master level shows points of interest and has the brightest light, while grandmastery will add the skill level in the appropriate magic skill to the caster`s perception skill as a bonus.||Cost: 1 SP
