Evaluating Intelligence

From UO Second Age
Jump to: navigation, search

Evaluating intelligence increases the damage and potency of magery, but only the damage of direct damage spells such as flamestrike, energy bolt, meteor swarm, etc. It has no effect on spells such as greater heal, nor will it make summoning spells (such the summon elemental, or summon daemon spells) last longer, or a make a spell such as wall of stone last longer, etc. Also it allows to evaulate the intelligence of any creature.
