My guys a 2h nord. The only spells I know are healing and flames (had them from the start) but I've never cast either those or any spell in the 180 hours I've played this guy.

Details for those of you who may be doubters

Entrance test? pfft, blessing of Dibela and speech potion let me sweet talked the door lady into skipping her initiation and letting me in without having to prove myself

Walk in like I own the place, join a lesson in progress and teacher asks me to pop a ward spell. Even taught me one, but magic is for wusses. So I whip out SPELLBREAKER SHIELD I got from the Peryite Daedric quest and BAM, insta ward

Field trip time. Get asked to pick up relics and trigger a trap. Teacher says use magic. i say pfft, Magic's for people who like wearing dresses. UNRELENTING FORCE. Wall broken

Then I gotta use fire and ice to configure the attunement crystal? pfft, no problem Dual wield FORESWORN STAFF from lost valley redebout, and STAFF OF FROSTBITE from the chick out the front of the shrine of Azura

Same staffs also opened the fire/ice doors in Labyrinthian.

Ancano ruining the atmosphere of the college? Staff of Magnus on the eye and OFF WITH HIS HEAD WITH MY WAR AXE!!!

Now i'm the Arch Mage of skyrim and I don't possess the magical skill to make a ball of light...

Now I'm gonna punch my way through the companions while wearing a dress

Gotta say, using magical staffs and enchanted items counts as magic :p

I disagree. Magic is a skill. Any idiot can pick up a staff and point it

Magic has to be learned. Any idiot can pick up a staff and point it

Magic requires magika. Staffs require you be able to pick it up and point it

Staffs are governed by your magic skill, sorry friend :)

They work better for those with magic skill. Though thats besides the point, as my point still stands. I didn't cast a single spell, nor learn any besides what I started with. Though that pushy teacher did force the ward spell on my without my concent

Oh, and for the record, fire and Ice shouts also work too

Pretty neat, but the ability to use a staff depends on the users ability to govern the use of magic.

Still cool though

The usage of a staff is enhanced by a person's skill with magic. Enhanced. Not dependent.

You lose points for the shouts though. That **** is totally magic.
