How to level conjuration?

#1xXMaxie360XxPosted 11/14/2011 7:03:56 AM
Summoning things when out of combat seems to do nothing, and I tend to raise my dead/summon before the fight starts. Could anyone explain to me exactly how it (and perhaps alteration and other magic skills that aren't attacks) works? Thanks.

I find it to level up as your summoned being does damage. It also levels up pretty slowly, seeing as you only need to cast a conjuration spell once or twice in a fight unlike spamming destruction spells

Summon atronachs and zombies whenever you can. Visit trainers if you have to.

Cast Soul Trap on every living and dead thing you see

Conjuration only levels up if there is a red dot on the radar.

Conjuration levels if you have a summon out while there are enemies nearby, even if you summoned before the encounter.

If you summon something outside of combat, you get a little bit of experience when combat starts.

If you attack your summoned creature, you will gain XP for it attacking you back.
