Can anyone tell me where to buy the invisibility spell book? I've been to several people, but can't seem to find the right one.

How high is your illusion skill level? Invisibility is an expert level spell (~75 skill) and if your skill is low, the higher level stuff won't even show up on the vendors to begin with. – Raven Dreamer Dec 8 '11 at 1:06
Its extremely low. I mostly follow the destructive spells. So that's most likely why I haven't seen it. But I've had spells become available and I didn't even have enough mana to cast them, but that goes back to your skill level I guess... – Bryan Dec 8 '11 at 23:19

You can only buy it from the illusion trainer in the College of Winterhold, but he won't sell it until your illusion is of sufficient expertise (i.e. expert level).

Thanks! I've never played the series before so that makes sense that there are more available for the school you excel in. – Bryan Dec 8 '11 at 22:40
@Bryan you're welcome – l I Dec 8 '11 at 22:41

From what I've experienced, the spell merchants in The College of Winterhold will actually begin selling the spells to you 10 levels before you can buy the perk associated with that particular proficiency level. I saw this when I was training Alteration: Tolfdir sold me Telekinesis when I only had an alteration skill of 40. I also had a similar experience with my Conjuration tomes. So you should be able to purchase that tome once your Illusion reaches 65 and then only from the Illusion trainer at the college.

I don't see why this wouldn't work with other schools of magic as well but haven't had a chance to test it myself yet. If anyone else could confirm, it would be nice.
