Detect Magic

Colleges Divination, Meta
Components Verbal, Hand
Casting Time 1 second
Duration 1 minute

This causes all sources of magic within 10 yards of the caster to glow faintly. This includes magic items, active spells, mana wells, etc. This spell is often used instead of Mage Sight when the mage is working with others and a great many magic items need to be sorted from more mundane items.

This spell is useless for determining if the caster has been affected by some other spell, because either way, they'll start glowing due to the effects of this spell.
