View Full Version : Ranger spell training?

08-22-2004, 07:46 PM
Ok, I've trained up the ranger list to 640 and then MnS to 120. I know you can use 125 to open boxes and was thinking about going all the way to 130. Do you also need perception/disarm skills to safely open boxes using 125? Assume aspect is *supposed* to come up soon but who knows. Any opinions?

The only problems with 125 are enruned, mithril and glyphed boxes.

The first two are easily determined. The last is a bit more guesswork. If you're wrong, the bolt will deflect and has a nice chance of killing you.

So, casting 125 at a trapped box won't set it off?

What is assume aspect?

650, it's gonna have a bunch of different "aspects" that we can take on for different bonuses. Supposed to be released in RSN this November along with a bunch of other ranger stuff, at least according to Solli.

Right now, I'm going for having in the end 650/130. I'm not a Volner, so fog is lookin pretty nice.

So umm, does casting 125 at a trapped box set it off or not?

I think 125 can set of boomers. I've had two or three boxes explode after casting 125 at it and having it do minimal damage to me. I've never had it set off any other traps, though.

I pretty much rely on 125 to open my boxes now. Don't have the perception to spot incinerators, and I got pretty sick of having the damn things turn me into empath bait on my first cast of 408.

Also, I hate to hijack the thread, but I have a quick question. I've got a level 15 ranger, Voln-fu/ranged hybrid. I'm planning on pushing him up to mobiles before switching to minor spirit. Once I do, how high should I train minor spirit before switching back to ranger circle? 103 or 107? I want to get Animal Companion as soon as possible, is why I ask.

I'd probably just do 103... deeps aren't that hard to get and I doubt you'll really have a huge problem against bolts anyway, I would get 103 then up to 640,

Just glyph ones as far as I've seen.
