I have been searching but cannot find much on this other than bardic skill for mastery spells. Does it matter if I have 120 Magery with 100 real and +20 from items? Will I fail more often than if I had a pure 120? Other than having the jewelry slots open is there any real reason to take a skill up to 120? Thanks in advance, old player returned after 4 year lay off and I'm real rusty .
