The Spellcasting skill determines how proficient a character is at casting spells from memory. A higher Spellcasting level makes it easier to cast spells by lowering their spell hunger, increasing their spell power slightly, and granting your character more max MP and spell levels. It has a minor effect on spell success rate, but increasing skill in a spell's individual magic schools is better for raising its success rate.
Note that the max MP increase granted by Spellcasting is not cumulative with that of Invocations or Evocations; only the highest of the three is used. For this purpose Spellcasting is twice as effective as the other skills.
