Invocations denotes how skilful your character is at beseeching a deity for help. It improves the power and/or success rate of most god-given powers. (For some gods, piety also has this effect.) Unless you have a manual of Invocations, you can train the skill if and only if your god uses it.

Invocations also increases your max MP, but the effect is not cumulative with Spellcasting or Evocations, and provides less maximum MP than Spellcasting.
