    Also for a warrior id be interested if they get the full 50. Sorcerers get half buff for having 100s so would assume the same for warriors.

    They get the full +50 for bolts and physical AS. They get half the CS buff to 700s because it is a hybrid circle.

    I hadn't done the math on spell ranks, but 31 mne adds +1. I tend to avoid using heroism, but it's +25. It really starts to put the sustained cap since only a handful of people go this high. This should help folks min/max to push the thresholds though.

    The big hitters actually tend to not power-up. I almost always am near my sustained max, but I'm limited by lore and spell training others have.

    So quickly looking it over, you have max CM enhanced and I think my AS increase would be from being over 75 ranks (80) of 400's for 425 +7 AS from 98 ranks of earth lore and +3 AS from 60 ranks of SL: Blessings for 215.

    You also probably forgot supercharger login boost for 25 AS on a 10x weapon?

    Supremacy on undead would be +13 more, warhorn script +30 and bards and CM can likely boost to low or mid 900s sustained maybe near 1k with a nice coup beforehand.

    Crap, just remembered forgot zealot.
