Version 0.19: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

Invocations denotes how skillful your character is at beseeching a deity for help. It improves the power and/or success rate of most god-given powers.

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