By means of this spell, you misdirect the information from divination spells that reveal auras ([_detect evil_](/spells/detect-evil), [_detect magic_](/spells/detect-magic), [_discern lies_](/spells/discern-lies), and the like). On casting the spell, you choose another object within range. For the duration of the spell, the subject of _misdirection_ is detected as if it were the other object. Neither the subject nor the other object gets a saving throw against this effect. Detection spells provide information based on the second object rather than on the actual target of the detection unless the caster of the detection succeeds on a Will save. For instance, you could make yourself detect as a tree if one were within range at casting: not evil, not lying, not magical, neutral in alignment, and so forth. This spell does not affect other types of divination magic ([_augury_](/spells/augury), [_detect thoughts_](/spells/detect-thoughts), [_clairaudience/clairvoyance_](/spells/clairaudience-clairvoyance), and the like).
