What is the spell and magic discipline? Also, what is your corresponding level in said discipline?
Are you wearing armor or robes? Because I do belive that wearing armor affects your spellcasting ability. It did in Oblivion.
Well, since you're not gonna clarify for us, I'll just give my best theory. There's only one spell I've seen in the game that actually costs 0 magicka, and that's because it actually costs health, converting it into magicka. Now, all other spells, of course, cost magicka, but that cost in this game reduces as you raise your skill in that spell's discipline (ie Destruction or Illusion) and the proper perks. So it is very possible that, for instance, someone who has maxed out Destruction and obtained the proper perks will discover that the spell Flames has a Magicka cost of 0/sec. However, the truth is that the spell actually costs a fraction of a magicka point per second. So what looks like 0 magicka/sec is probably actually 0.5/sec. And at the high levels necessary in order to obtain that 100 Destruction, using a spell like Flames would take a long time to kill your opponent, therefore it would still cause noticable drain on your Magicka. Again, this is just my theory.
Perhaps 0 is just a rounded number for 0.4 or something, like carry weight.
