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.

Visit a trainer?

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.

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.
