The target of this spell can fly at a speed of 120 feet (or 80 feet if it wears medium or heavy armor, or if it carries a medium or heavy load). It can ascend at full speed, descend at double speed, hover in place, and its maneuverability is Perfect.

Using a Flawless Flyer spell requires only as much concentration as walking, so the subject can attack or cast spells normally. The subject of a Flawless Flyer spell can charge but not run, and it cannot carry aloft more weight than its maximum load, plus any armor it wears. The subject gains a bonus on Fly skill checks equal to 1/2 your caster level.

Should the spell duration expire while its target is still aloft, the magic fails slowly (as per the Fly spell).

Arcane Focus: A feather from the wing of any bird.

The first Shileylen observed by the Gelvani had such an effect on them that they called them Shileylen Elnoran - “flawless flyers” - for their grace and beauty. In the centuries since, common parlance has reduced that title to simply Shileylen.

Kalthanan Korianthil created this spell to serve both as an intermediate means of transportation, and as his principal mode of movement during battle. Shileylen Elnoran allows Kalthanan to move effortlessly across all three dimensions of the battlefield. His freedom of movement is such that his ability to attack foes whilst flying is completely unaffected.

This spell has become relatively common among experienced Gelvani arcane spellcasters.
