I just bought these two spells and equipped them, but have no idea how to use them. I tried using a wand but my character just scratches his head and nothing happens. =/

Make sure your shield is equipped when you cast the spell.

I have a sword in my hand, and magic weapon won't cast. Help?

The catalyst has to be in the hand the other item isn't, so if you're right handed (and I think the description specifies left/right) you equip a catalyst in your left with the weapon you want to use the spell on equipped in your right, and your shield in the left hand with a catalyst in the right.

The spell goes away when you put an item away so you can't have both spells active at once.

So if you want to use the spell, take out the catalyst and in the other hand take out what you want to use them on.

If it's greyed out, either you do not have the right catalyst, or you do not have 15 intelligence (for magic weapon)

Oh, I think it's the catalyst.

It sounds confusing but it isn't.

You MUST have a catalyst in your hand to cast your spell, meaning you have to have it out in one hand, and a weapon in the other if you want to cast Magic Weapon, or a shield if you want to cast Magic Shield.

Since you need a catalyst out to cast the spell, and the spells go away when you put the weapon/shield away, it's impossible to have both Magic Weapon and Magic Shield active at the same time.

I'm pretty sure I don't have the right catalyst, unless I can use a stick to cast it like with Magic Arrow.

Because I had it on the left hand, weapon in right, from thevery start, it takes 10 int., I have 12, and I can't cast it.

You sure it's not a talisman you're holding? The item description tells you what catalyst it is for.
