Summary of test resultsEdit

  • The first test indicates, but does not conclusively prove, that there is approximately a 110% bonus on received castings when reading from a Blessed spellbook, and that only ~90% of castings are received from a cursed spellbook.
  • This test also determined that spell castings are capped at 30,000 for any particular spell. Note that it may be possible to go above the 30k limit with the effect of a Potion of wonder or other similar item.
  • The second test determined that the number of successful readings possible from a spellbook is set upon creation of the book in question, and does not vary if the book's B/U/C status changes.

First testEdit

This test was rather simple: read spellbooks of various B/U/C statuses and determine the resulting number of castings. The objective was to determine whether or not there is a bonus for reading blessed spellbooks.

The character was a level 50 Bard with all stats maxed, as well as Concentration and Literacy at 100. This was done to receive the maximum possible castings per read, as well as to avoid the potential problem of a stat increasing part way through the test.

  • Note that before the first reading in the test, the spell was not known at all, hence the lower value for that reading.

Second TestEdit

The second test was to determine whether or not B/U/C status has any effect on number of readings possible per book. To this end, the same character in test #1 was used, and he read different books, loading a backup after each book to bless/curse the book in question and see if number of readings changed. In no case did they change.
