    You did raise the skill to 120 not just eat the scroll? Just wondering because I am at 120 I don't fizzle Ev's. What is your eval. int. level? Maybe that needs to be 120 also.

    120 scroll raises your cap, not your skill...

    Holding a Mage weapon can also lower your success chance if it isn't compensated for with other items.

    Yes, what is your real skill? Train your Margery to 120, the scroll only opens up you ability to raise the skill to 120, you still have to raise it. Put on jewelry to cap it to 120 and cast. It sounds to me like some training is coming for you!

    @Mesanna @Kyronix you cannot have a space between the @ and the name to tag them Tanivar.

    :rolleyes: Been here a while people.

    With jewelry, have 121 Magery, 95 real skill with +26 from ring & bracelet to have GM mage weapons.

    EDIT: And a Scrapper's Compendium doesn't lower skill.

    Are you being interrupted, by chance? It's not possible to fizzle 8th circle otherwise.

    100 Magery skill remaining when holding a mage weapon.

    With the -21 from his mage weapons (best with no special imbuing ingredients needed to make it) his Magery skill for the games combat math formula is 100 (GM) which I've read adds some extra benefit with some skills. May no longer be true after the release of powerscrolls but it's only one skill point more in Magery so why not? :)

    Well if you are holding the mage weapon, then that is what causes you to fizzle...

    Yeah, with only GM skill due to the weapon, EV's do fizzle a lot. Thing is, with the Scrapper's Compendium he uses as a rule, his Magery stays at 120 skill, so why are EV's commonly fizzling?

    I would have to actually see it happen to guess beyond what has been suggested in this thread.

    The dragons in Destard I hunt for hides are certainly enjoying it. Fizzle, fizzle, fizzle, fizzle, munch!

    Have you really died? Something seems up in UO and you have to die to get some benefits or have some negatives removed. Like the reveal from Blackthorn's dungeon for example. When I notice stuff odd I let something kill me near a healer.

    Not since doing the scroll. Nothings done my hide in yet, gotten good at doing a Snagglepus. :mf_prop:

    A dirtnap is worth a try, I'll finish this merchant ship and give a dragon a treat.

    Dead by dragon then 25 EVs casted, about half & half in and outside of Destard, one fizzled inside. This I can deal with.

    Got to just dirtnap before pancakes next time.
