    Question -- does equipped spellbook slayer properties affect necromancy?

    In otherwords, if I am carrying a repond slayer spellbook, will my pain spike and other necro damage spells be enhanced against a repond creature (i.e. trogs for example)? I know eval int doesn't impact these spells, but I'm not sure about spellbook slayer properties. Thanks!

    i dont think the slayer applies to necromancy, ive tried on my necromage and seen no difference.

    From what others have told me, it appears slayer book magnifies the effect of Eval Int. So I just jumped in to test that theory, and it appears to be correct. I tried Mind Blast on Ettins and saw the same damage with and without a repond slayer spellbook. So would conclude that the formula to apply slayer book increase is tied to the Eval Int instead of straight SDI, this prevents it from being useful for mind blast, necro and spellweaving.
