    I have a tamer that has 120 magery. No med ( only a med suit) but magery is enough high to cast energy vortex :)
    After the expansion casting a vortex is a very very hard thing. I had to try 2 or 3 times before the vortex comes.
    All other spells works right. Only energy vortex are wrong.
    Someone has the same problem?

    Not that it matters...did you change any part of your template? I myself have not had any problems with EV's.

    Are you using a mage weapon? This is the only thing I think it could be.

    Not that I think it has an effect these days (although I did notice it seemed to with regards magic resist)......try eating food.

    Are you in the SA Client. If you are I also have this proble sometimes. You click where you want to summon it and your cursor goes away like you cast the spell but it does nothing. Idk why this happens, but it must be some kind of bug. Spells sometimes don't work for me if I'm trying to click on a targets health bar as well. Becomes a PITA when you have 10 people in your party and your at a peerless, trying to hit something without using its health bar, because half of the time the spell just vanishes, lost amoung the other 1's and 0's.

    Sorry, have you read this?
    I have some chars ( not only that tamer) who have magery at 120, without evaint or med.
    They can't cast vortex at the first time. At 120, they have to try 3 or 4 times. Every other spell, like resurrection, works well. Only eV is a problem :(
    It's a little bug?
    I'm bored to find some bugs that noone says "yes, you are right" and then, after a while, it has resolved, like WW trapped in the rock.

    Could be followers ... but usually I have the problem of 'you cannot see the target'-problem. Or in more crowded areas, I stop at 'this location is blocked'.
    That a spell doenst fizzle anymore, doesnt mean, you can cast it always successfull. Thats especially a problem with summons that need a free tile targeted to be cast.

    I've noticed my smith which has 60 magery has been fizzling on recalls since expansion. Sometimes several times in a row.
    Before expansion I don't recall him ever fizzling. Not saying it never happened
    just that it was rare enough that I can't think of a time he did.

    there can be a problem if u r laggy, sometimes u cast but no targetting cursor comes up. u can also be getting interupted from poison, mana drain and some others even with protection on.
    happens to my necromage quite often, even gets interupted by game messages sometimes. hes 120 also, there are alot of nocast tiles, like when u try to rez someone standing next to u and u get the message"cannot be rezzed at that location"

    Sorry
    I always saiyd to tell me the easiest possible. Not slang or abbreviation. I do not understand english very well :)
    I have 120 magery then EV has a percentula of 100%.
    But now, after the expansion, EV has no 100% percentual.
    I know that it can be interrupted. Obiouvlsy i mean that also if there are noone that can be interrupt the spell, and EV fizzles.
    Only EV, every other spaelll work ri8ght.
    There's some bug?

    Ok, try this... go somewhere with level ground and just cast ev's, dispel them, cast again... do that several times and keep track of how many times you fail. Don't fight anything... this is an experiment. By picking a piece of level ground you eliminate two causes for ev's to fail and if nothing else is fighting you, you can't be interrupted while casting. (You did not say if you had Protection cast.)

    How much med do you have?

    I took my mage out today after the patch for an extended fight and he never wiffed... cast a lot of ev's and other 8th level spells.

    Let us know how the experiment went.
