    Default Official: Magic Item Updates

    Quote Originally Posted by GM Viduus
    Various magic items and systems have had some improvements. The following items were impacted.

    New System
    Generic MIU/Scroll CS
    A new system has been added for Magic Items and Scrolls to allow additional CS and Maneuver bonuses for those skilled in the appropriate skill. Activating a CS spell from a Magic Item or Scroll will now grant a CS bonus similar to spell ranks using the following formula.
    .75 CS per rank up to level
    .5 CS per rank up to 2x level
    .33 CS per rank over 2x level

    Maneuver bonuses are sphere/spell specific but generally following the following pattern
    .5 per rank up to level
    .33 per rank up to 2x level
    .1 per rank over 2x level

    Note: Semi spell bonuses are halved.

    As an additional note elemental and sorcerer spells are granted an additional bonus when wearing 1711 similar to that of 425. The calculation used is the same formula as 425 (25 bonus at 25 ranks and an additional bonus point up to a max of 50 at 75 ranks). This bonus is in additional to the base +10 CS granted by the base spell.

    Items
    Magic items/scrolls have had the following updates.
    -Gold rings location settings are now detectable via. 405.
    -Bronze Squares (1718 - V'tull's fury) can now be activated from containers. This update addresses some issues weapon users had with needing to hold the square in the offhand to activate.

    Misc. Notes
    The mana verb has been updated with enhancive values to bring it in line with the other stats-related commands.
    The messaging for 520 (Mage Armor) has had some updates to its messaging to help casters keep track of which elemental aspect is currently active. Spell Active has also been updated to reflect the current element in use.

    If you find 520 now missing from Spell Active, re-casting it with a specific element seemed to fix it for me.

All three of those spells have an instantaneous effect, but all three also have the possibility for lingering effects. There is a runestaff somewhere, which has been sold several times, that casts Spoke Thorn. I assume that even with 202 MIU ranks a Cleric would never be as good at Spike Thorn as a Ranger.
    Correct.

    No. It affects offensive warding and maneuver spells when activated from magical items or scrolls. If said spell is also elemental in nature, 1711 will provide an additional boost (since ETD is calculated with the assumption 425 is active on elemental casters, said bonus also only applies if 425 is not active itself).

    Nice.

    Since when has 616 had lingering effects?
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    So wait, if I am trained in the spell and get bonuses from that, does bonus from MIU training stack? (say if I have 70 ranks of minor elemental for strong ewaves, and then I activate an imbed with ewave, and I also have 100 MIU ranks...)
    I might not want to buy your item if you don't use lich to arrange delivery, unless we make special arrangements. PM me if I bid on your item and you don't use lich to see if we are going to have issues with delivery because I don't want to use ICQ, AOL instant messager, smoke signals, etc. to get in touch.

    No, you get whichever is higher. Spell ranks or MIU.

    The system will use either your natural spell bonuses (known spells) or your arcane symbols ranks, whichever is higher, but they won’t combine with each other. If you have a bonus of 423 from your spiritual spells, but a 450 CS from arcane symbols, your arcane symbols value will be used. If, on the other hand, you have a 423 bonus from your spiritual spells, but only a 327 CS from your arcane symbol contribute, your spell bonus will be used.


    What is a semi-circle spell?

    Rangers, bards, paladins

    I tried some Sorc wands with this change and now I see what all the complaining was about during the Wiz/ele lore review. The difference in hunting power between Sorcerors and Wizards is bloody insane.
