Enhancing Magic boosts a target's capabilities, making them stronger. Also referred to as buffs.

Enhancing Magic Skill is the skill base from which Enhancing Magic derives. It is most synonymous and most importantly relational to the strength of all Enhancing spells therein, with the exception of Protect, Shell, and Haste.

Enhancing Magic also helps defend against spell interruptions for any spells in its category.
