I'm asking based on info from the UESP wiki's "Staves" article (emphasis mine):
Anyone can use a staff, regardless of magic skill, and using a staff does not use any of the caster's own Magicka; instead, it depletes the staff's charge. However, the higher the user's skill level in the relevant magic school, the lower the charge cost to use the staff. Using staves does not increase your skills, nor do staves benefit from higher skill levels, with the exception of lowering the cost per charge.
And from a loading screen message:
The charge level of a staff is based on the corresponding skill of the mage wielding it. For example, a wizard with a high Destruction skill would get a lot of uses from a Staff of Fireball.
I'm wondering if 'Fortify <magic school>' alchemy effects or enchantments (make spells cost less to cast), also could affect the charge cost of using a staff of the same magic school.
For example, if I'm wearing a robe or armor like the Robes of Extreme Destruction or Vampire Armor of Extreme Destruction (Fortify Destruction, 22 pts; Enchantment description: Destruction spells cost 22% less to cast) – will those apparel lessen the charge cost of using Destruction staves like the Staff of Fireballs or Staff of Ice Storms?
