    Normally I would just test this for myself, but I'm at work and contemplating the weapon I'm going to craft for a new gimplate I'm working on.

    I know that enchant lets you put 60 hit spell and SC -1 on a weapon.

    My question is: If I have a weapon that has faster casting 1 and I enchant, I assume it goes to SC with no penalty. Can anyone confirm this? I won't get to log in for like 3 days and I'm really curious.

    My second question is: if I have an enchanted weapon that puts it to 60 lightning, if I use focus attack does that put me at 100 hit spell?

    1-nope the spell channeling from enchant is more like a minimum, so doesn't increase anything if you have spell channeling -1 or spell channeling on weap

    2-not sure if this would take u over 100 or not,don't remember the percentage increase it gives.i believe u would need a 67%(from focus attack) increase to get to 100(assuming i'm remembering correctly on how it operates and its not capped)


    Edit:also stupid miner posted that enchant weapon doesn't do as much damage as the normal hit spell abilities on weaps

    yes having 1FC will turn it into a spell chan no penalty weapon.


    Not sure on the focus attack, it might.


    I can also verify that the hit spell from enchant is not as powerful as the real hit spell

    Hit spell on a weapon property assumes 80 eval from the player I believe, perhaps enchant just takes whatever the players Eval is and applies damage that way?

    Damn misread the the first question thought you meant if it increased spell channeling -1 to spell channeling(my bad). yes as posted above it does stack with fc 1

    think it probally just gives a lower value, say eval at 60. though will check in abit

    k just checked(sorta),didn't see any differece betweeen 0 eval and 110 eval,also my guess of about 60 eval(for damage purposes) seems correct.
    very hard to test as the damage numbers,from fireball, where only showing up on screen at about 1 in 10-15 fireballs. was using 120/120 myst/focus throughout test

    On the second question.

    You can't cast focus if you have an enchanted weapon.
