- Creates a hovering light that lasts for 60 seconds.
Candlelight is a novice level Alteration spell that creates a floating ball of light that hovers around the caster for 60 seconds.
- Stability and Alteration Dual Casting perk effects stack rendering its duration to 198 secs, if cast with both hands.
- Understandably not recommended for stealth. Magelight may be preferable in these situations as it doesn't constantly reveal your location.
- NPCs will comment on the light if you approach them with it active.
- Interestingly, during the Dragonborn add-on, when entering some Black Books where dark areas can inflict damage, this spell, and Magelight by extension, has the same effect as using a torch in that it can protect the player-character, so long as it is maintained.
