|This spell allows the caster to float in the air.|
Levitation was a level 2 Charms/Air Magic spell which caused you to hover over the floor, ignoring all water or lava tiles and granting a bonus to stealth. However, it did have drawbacks: you became more vulnerable to the Airstrike spell, could not pick up items, and could not descend stairs until the effect has worn off. To avoid the last two of these, you could use the controlled flight intrinsic. You'd receive the fly condition instead, which had none of the down sides and a few extra perks.
