[Mysticism] Is a 120 scroll worth the cost for PVM?

Discussion in 'UO Spellcaster' started by Old Man of UO, Jun 4, 2010.

  1. I just started training mysticism to use in PVM, and already have a 115 mystic scroll in storage. Will I notice much difference between 115 and 120 skill, and is it worth the cost for PVM? Vendor prices are ridiculous.
     
  2. That pretty much depends on what the main point of the character is. If you've got Mysticism mainly for Colossus then yeah its worth it. If you've got it but are mainly dealing damage through other means, or have it just for defense then probably not.
    (For PvM at least.)

    You need 120 mystic and 120 focus to spell trigger bombard, that is worth it IMO.
     
  4. That can be 120 focus OR imbuing, right?

    I would assume, can't confirm or deny for certain.
     
  6. Yes you only need Focus OR Imbuing, not both.

    Triggering Bombard isn't exactly a PvM necessity, given the cooldown, when you could just spam it anyway.

    Ya, reading and comprehension fail on my part. GOD is right, probably not worth it for PvM. PvP definitely.
     
  8. For PvP definitely.

    Oh and Stone Form based characters... the immunities scale up to 100% effective at 120/120.
     
  9. Alrighty! Thanks both of you, that helped a lot.

    in pvm i use 115 and get along just fine only thing is the occasional fail with collossus
     
  11. Mysticism is *something like* 0.5 higher difficulty than Magery, so even at 120 there's no 100% success on Colossus.

    Colossus is noticeably stronger as it gets closer to 120. Don't know your money situation but you could always eat the 115 til you got the 120

    Another thread I read said Spell plague is at 100% success at 108 skill

    Ask yourself which spells you'll be relying on mostly to answer the question
     
  13. That's exactly what I'm doing. I've never been one to have hundreds of mil in the bank, so it's a bit of a stretch to pay 14 mil for a 120 scroll when I bought a 115 scroll for 1 mil.

    As far as which spells I will be using, I have no clue since I haven't used any of them! I just started yesterday and am only at 50 skill. It will take a bit of play before I know how to properly use any of the new spells.
     
  14. If you don't know the spells perhaps it would be of benefit to play it on Test Centre. There you can change your skill values instantly to see the difference and also Lore your Colossus.

    Some of the spells are directly affected by the Mysticism skill (such as Healing Stone, Stone Form, Spell Trigger, Colossus) but others may just be success chance (which is usually the case).
