Working on spells >20
# Apr 21 2003 at 9:57 AM Rating: Excellent
I've seen several posts from people claiming that Mana Preservation I works on spells over 20th - contrary to what the description says. I've noticed though that these are all from people playing hybrid characters (i.e. rangers) casting thier spells that they've attained after 20th but that thier caster component gets earlier. One shaman player also claimed that it worked on greater healing - but that is a spell clerics get before 20th (if I remember correctly). I think this is what one must consider when figuring out which spells MP1 will work on.

It does indeed work after 20, but as the item description says it loses efficiency for spells post-20, at a rate of 10% per level.
ok, newbie question

I am just wondering...you right click on the item to use this? And if i have all four items, does it like make it 40% then? LOL...I guess its time to upgrade, but I am curious as to how this stuff works.
RE: ok, newbie question

Well dear I will try to help a bit then

This particular set of items gives an effect. Having one or all of the ietms gives the same effect -- preserving mana that you would normally cast for a particular level of spells. Having one item or all of them will give you the same 10% net gain (preservation of the mana).

In short no cumulative bonus for having the full set :-)

Next take a look at what level ithe mana preservation is. This is Mana preservation 1. This affects only spells that are level 1-20. Hence, you would not save any mana on casting the Ranger level 22 Panic Animal spell. That is unless you got a mana preservation 2, which covers leels 1-40 :-)

Hope this helps hon

who the hell has complete healing under level 20? im confused....because you know when your uber you complete heat at level 10... Anyways from what I understand NO MATTER what level you are, if the spell is under 20, it takes 10% less mana... (oohhhh ahhhh) after 20 it does not really matter BUT if you can get your hands on this before 20, like say very low, its very nice.

Works for higher spells

This works when I cast my Lv 39 greater healing, Lv 50 Flame light and my Lv 52 Force. They must have changed its restriction of spells under 20.

It works after lvl 20

I think they changed this in a patch...anyway, it works on my lvl 30 buff spells. definatly an upgrade on the orcfang I was wearing)
Says specifically for level 20 or lower spells
# Aug 31 2002 at 1:41 AM Rating: Decent
Says it only effects lvl 20 or below spells....doesn't say it doesn't work after you reach level 20. Also, I did the ToV quest at 20. All my spells are 19 and will be fitting the category till my next spell level at 24. Well worth it for me.

Eh? Have you ever played a caster? Theres heaps of spells level 20 or below that get used way past level 20.
Ever heard of Fear, SoW, Stun, Gate, Bind Affinity etc.

How f'in stupid is it to label the items? They didn't have any effects before, and now they have a little something added in, be grateful i say. These items are just a little bit better now.

I bought this spell for a friend of mine for 1k on Brell. It's rare to see it sold, but it drops off creatures in HS and SF (skyfire) zones. Not sure which creatures in HS, but I'm told someone got this from a mature chromadric in SF zone. I'm also told it drops in Seb, but I've yet to confirm that.

The pet it summons isn't all that great from what I've heard, but many chanters like to have complete spells.

Most creatures in SF are light blue to a lvl 60 druid and can easily be soloed. I suggest finding a class that can solo or finding a few friends (ideal lvls 50-57 for a group) and making it a fun quest for yourself.

GL to you all.
Archery Buff
# Jul 08 2002 at 10:11 PM Rating: Decent
Ok....try this and it will explain the effect of this spell. Root a mob..then go to max range of your bow. Then cast spell on self and move back about 20% more. Wham..you have longer range..Tried and tested. As far as the damage I haven't seen any addition to it..although I am not doubting it. Just saying I haven't seen it. Best shot with Trueshot bow and 4dmg 150rng arrows 156dmg. Dex does make a major damage effect on this. Mine at that time was buffed by a bard to 208 dex. I really miss her.

I have a polised bone hoop, the platinum armband looks nice too. Is this effect stackable?

Nope, none of the focus effects is stackable.
spell level limit
# Jun 20 2002 at 12:45 AM Rating: Good
Well, I must say I think it't too bad that ToV limits the level of spells on which it preserves mana. I think it's a quest that would be very hard for anyone under level 20 to do and it seems very stingy to ration this effect to those spells that you had to use to get you through the quest in the first place. Now most of us that have had this item for a long time got it for the Wisdom boost, and this effect wasn't part of the lure to do the quest,but still it seems very ungenerous of the designers not to include the next couple of spell levels for its Wisdom casters.

I don't kow what all the need to be lvl 20 to get it so its worthless is about I just got the ToV yesterday with a lvl 14 Druid. It took alot of hamony and root but it was not that hard.

I can't speak for the Testament of Vanear, but I like this ability in my cougar clar earring. Being a ranger, this covers several of the spells I still use at level 44 - camouflage, snare etc. While it'd be nice for it to affect higher level spells, it isn't so important. But then again, I'm not a pure wis caster )
# May 27 2002 at 1:44 AM Rating: Decent
Anyone know what this spell sells for?
# May 02 2002 at 8:35 AM Rating: Decent
Seems most of our spells are in skyfire or old seb so I would check those first.The only clue I see is Kun.

Can anyone provide some info on what zone this has been found in?

55 Beguiler
Spelling is wrong.
# Feb 19 2002 at 4:45 AM Rating: Decent
The name of the level 55 spell is, "ZURNAIK'S ANIMATION" not Zumaik's as you have it now. Its easy to confuse the "rn" with "m". Screenshot to follow soon.
