Not as far as I know.

I've always had horrible perception attributes and always had fully accurate and efficient spells.

It does affect how much we can see around items though, so sometimes we can't target farther players that are hidden behind trees or the such.

You're not meant to be able to see behind a tree >_> . Noone is meant to be able to see behind a tree. You can't cast where you can't see, therefore if you DO target people and cast at them behind a tree you are a naughty boy.

Perception helps you to see your targets earlier, so you can aim at them, but if you are using a wand you will always hit your target.

Because no dev actually says how magic targeting really works you could say that a mage does not depend on a direct viewline to throw a fireball, but they target after some kind of aura *shrug*

Yeah you're shooting the fireball through the tree >_>

Just because it's technically possible doesn't mean it's right. e.g. Teleporting through walls.
