    Saw someone wanting a -15 in chat the other day. Said it didn't matter the weapon. I offered a -25 wand but he said he wanted a -15. What's the deal?

    You can then imbue the +15 mage on a ring to counter for the loss.

    if your a 120 mage and you equip a -15 you can still cast level 8 spells 80% of the time without fail.
    if u use a -25 youll only be at 95 skill and youll fail a LOT more.
    and like mentioned above its the difference between running +magic on just a ring or on both ring and watch, which saves you a space for something else.

    It is -10 but carries the casting penalty and is two handed.
