    Sounds like fun does it not.

    Skill gain from 0-25: Arcane Circle (just stand in one and spam cast it)
    Skill gain from 25-38: immolating weapon
    Skill gain from 38-65ish: Summon Fey/Fiend (this is a bit trickier) what I did, was make a quick macro with each of the summoned creatures names and then release. IE for the Feys: sili release sini release xian release piepe release, etc. I made 4 seperate macros (in the options menu), and spammed these as I went slow forward north (on a boat, not 8x8'ing yet). I continued casting and releasing, took about 2 hours to get to mid 60's. That's where I am at atm, I'll post more after I get higher, and how I did.
     
  3. up to 20, arcane circle is really fast.
    20-35, thunderstorm is good
    36-55, reaper form and arcane empowerment
    55-65, summon fey and fiend (mass dispel helps a lot)
    66-80, dyrad lure makes for a lot of fun but isn't very fast...go nuts in sanctuary though and make a ton of loot in the process with the orge lords and titans.
    80+, word of death spamming. not fast, but it works. it is pretty empowering to drop some of the new champs.

    so far at 91 spellweaving, but i don't have most of the scrolls.

    I can confirm drops of spellweaving scrolls on changelings, trogladytes and crystal demons. Crystal demons seem by far the best source but that might be because the spawn is much less crowded.

    Don't know if it's been stated, but Spellweaving is 8x8able. Haven't bothered using a boat yet but definately worked on land.

    I've been 8x8'ing again for a few hours tonight. After 65 I casted Essence of Wind until roughly 86. At 86 it stopped giving me gains, I attempted to go to Wildfire, and am doing a run as I am typing this. As Essence stopped gaining, in the same run I casted wildfire and gained off it. So, at 86 you must switch up to wildfire... (This is assuming of course you have not eaten a PS yet) I'll reply again when wildfire stops gaining.

    Ok just GMed spellweaving and this is what I did:

    Firstly I made sure I had a mana regen suit with 45% LMC.. tokuno arties are perfect for that! If you can't get that sort of suit just get the best you can, mana costs are so high you'll need every point you can get.

    0-25 Arcane Circle: Standing on a pentagram, just spamming it. The gains died off at 20 but I found if I switched to a different circle they started again, so I just kept alternating between 2 circles till i was at 25.

    25-45 Reaper Form: On a boat just changing back and forth. I didn't have immolate weapon at the time, but I guess you could use that to get a little higher before you switch to reaper form.

    45-55 Summon Fey: Quite a quick way, but a real pain to keep releasing the pixies, so I didn't stick with it for long.

    55-75 Essence of Wind: Straightforward spell, just casting on a boat.

    75-99.8 Wildfire: Same as essence except you have to target something. I targeted myself (doesn't hurt you). It proved useful because I never overshot a gain tile since I could tell by the position of the flames exactly where I had cast it!

    The final two points I got by killing everything that moved outside my house with word of death and land 8*8ing the final gain. My gain run ran out at 99.8 and I just couldn't be bothered to pick it up again for the sake of 2 gains. I suspect wildfire would work all the way to GM though, I was probably just unlucky there.

    Other spells might also work but those are the only scrolls I have for now.

    For anyone interested you heal 10 points of damage with gift of renewal every 2 seconds at GM.

    Where can I find Spellweaving Scrolls?

    Off loot from monsters, the most common source is the new monsters in the new dungeons, and from doing quests in the hart wood. You may need to complete a quest to gain access to certain spells.

    [/ QUOTE ]Summon Fey scrolls are gained through a quest in Heartwood.
    Summon Fiend scrolls are gained through a quest in the Sanctuary.

    What is the Arcane focus?

    This object is created when 4 or more arcanists stand in a magic circle (pentagram will work too) and cast Arcane Circle. A focus is created that powers your spells, and the more arcanists (up to 4) that stand in there also can help you make a more powerful focus to make your arcane spells more powerful. A focus has a limited life, and is destroyed when dropped.

    [/ QUOTE ]
    Change the first italicized text to "more than 4".
    Change the second italicized text to "when removed from your backpack", because they get destroyed putting them in your bank, or in containers inside your backpack (I think on the second one).

    You can create an arcane focus with any amount of people...
    The strength of it is capped at 5, so you can have 100 people standing in the circle, but it won't get any stronger then 5.

    When you do it yourself it just has the strength of 1 and lasts 3200.

    To help with training, here is a UOA macro to release the pixies:

    Here is the pixie names if anyone wants to make their own:
    Nedra, Hali, Sini, Cynthe, Piku, Shiale, Klistra, Wienne, Os, Ciline, Ybri, Sefi, Shri, Klian, Rael, Calee, Jiki, Laeri, Liera, Sili, Piepe, Xian, Shendri, Ourie, Zut, Zanne, and Arielle.
    I'm not sure Arielle spawns as a normal pixie anymore, but I have here then just in case.
    Hope you can use this.

    *edit* I added pause 100 cause it was leaving out a random name at the end.
    *spelling error
     
  10. be careful, there's a bug with the focus, so it's best to not destroy it. the bug basically makes one unable to create a focus, thus stuck without one.

    This object is created when 4 or more arcanists stand in a magic circle (pentagram will work too) and cast Arcane Circle. A focus is created that powers your spells, and the more arcanists (up to 4) that stand in there also can help you make a more powerful focus to make your arcane spells more powerful.

    Change the first italicized text to "more than 4".

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Actually, you'd want to change it to "up to 5" or "the caster and up to 4 other arcanists." Furthermore, I've noticed that, at least as of this moment, the requirement is not so much "arcanists" as "ML-enabled characters." I have been able to create Strength level 2 and above arcane foci with my character as the only one on the circle who had actually completed the Arcanist quest. (And yes, the Arcane Focus will appear in the backpack of the non-arcanists as well.)

    This is the second one - putting it on tamer for my wife's tamer.

    As I did not type it out last time, I forgot the early parts of last one, but wildfyre did take me to gm, then I ate a scroll and went back, where wyldefire took me to 111 where it stopped cold. That is on the first one I built.

    Now - imolating weapon from 0 - 43.2 - starting reaper form now as gains have slowed.

    reaper form 43.2 - 52.2
    essence of wind 52.3 - 71.6
    wyldrire 71.7 - 75 where we are capped on this char.

    Next Arcanist:
    0 - 46.2 imolating weapon
    46.3 - 57.6 reaper form
    57.7 - 79.8 essence of wind


    Sometimes people I talk with are not getting gains from imolating weapon after 39 skill points are hit, or there about.

    Wildfire took me to 111. :?/
    It stopped cold at 111, and WoD did not pick it back up again.

    Furthermore, I've noticed that, at least as of this moment, the requirement is not so much "arcanists" as "ML-enabled characters." I have been able to create Strength level 2 and above arcane foci with my character as the only one on the circle who had actually completed the Arcanist quest. (And yes, the Arcane Focus will appear in the backpack of the non-arcanists as well.)

    [/ QUOTE ]Was the other arcanist human? that might've been the jack-of-all-trades bonus.

    Troglodytes spawn instantly one after another by twos so unless someone has a Repond Slayer or a tamer then you can't last too long without help. I have looted 3 word or deaths, 2 gift of lifes, 4 thunderstorms, 3 gift of renewals so I bought 7 scrolls from 10-20k. Another good idea would be to trade with firends, guildmates, but this could take some time. But after killing around 100 Troglodytes a day, gold for scrolls were not a problem.

    I have had success with:
    0-20 Arcane Circle
    20-33 Thunderstorm
    33-44 Reaper Form
    44-52 Summon Fey
    52-58 Dryad Lore (helps to have hiding when failed)
    currently at 58-? using essence of wind (.9 gain using the 8 step method)

    not really groundbreaking news, but its something i just realized...the altars at champ spawn locations are pentagrams, so spellweavers can create a focus there if they need to.

    That is groundbreaking.....i ran all over last night (mule was stuck and could not log in) looking for pentagrams....last resort i ran to mage shop moonglow. Spawn champ altars...DUH!! thanks you.

    there is also a pentagram on the roof of the umbra inn, just north of the bank...if you stand where i am standing in the picture, you can use the circle without having to climb up to the roof.

    You can get your focus up to 6 in the Prism of Light. That little area with the healers... that pentagram there... you need either 5 or 6.

    But your focus goes to 6... which is ridiculous damage^^

    Weaving at the altar. Awesome! Wish I'd thought of it. FAQ it!
     
  25. thanks Ryna got the macro working ...
    but...
    isn't there a way to do summon fey without the over spamming of the 'spell' ?
    holdiing down say f10 summon fey macro till your followers reach max causes a ton of spam both system and in game [​IMG]

    the release macro for uoa works well ..
    is it possiable to put it all on one or maybe two lines to make it faster ?
    like ... aaa realease, bbb release, ccc release ... etc ??

    i want the most effecient way without causing more lag to the game.

    I didn't see where this was mentioned before, so unless I'm mistaken the minimum skill requirement for Word of Death is 80.0, not 66.1 as the prelim FAQ in this forum states.

    When I try to cast it with my spellweaver/mage it says "You must have atleast 80 skill to cast this" or something akin to that.

    Also, Arcane Empowerment and Gift of Life do not require 80.1 to cast, I'm not sure what the minimum skill level is but I know it is less than that as my spellweaver can cast those but can't cast Word of Death yet. It seems the spell information on the FAQ was copied from the pre-release website for ML.



    Hope this helps!

    IDK if u want to add a PvP section for spellweaving but i found this information usefull. Attunement and Blood Oath stack.
    Example:
    Lets say Attunement Absorbs 50 Damage

    PvP setting -
    Angry Swordsmans with Pre-Patch talon bite decides to fight a necro spellweaver.
    Necro spellweaver casts attunement and then bloodoaths the angry swordsman.
    Angry swordsman hits spellweaver for 50 damage. Bloodoath reflect 50 damage back to the swordsman but spellweaver's attunements absorbs all 50 damage from hit.
    Angry swordsman is now half dead, while spellweaver is still full hp.
    Works well against dexxers in pvp.

    note on the pvp, if you cast gift of renewal you also get auto heals of 10 every few ticks for 60 secs or so, really ticks off the other player [​IMG].
    Doom Note: I use my spellweaver/mage in doom constantly and when i decide to really punch the df in the face, i cast gift of renewal, then wail on him with flamestrikes x 6 usually, then as the gift fades, im back to maintaining my earthies, df throws the bones, but your hp go down 6-15 and heal right up. since arcane shield and gift of renewal are both timed, just sea-saw between the two. My current run on doom is 5 arties in 8 days.. ORNI!, ring of vile, staff of magi, axe of the heavens and the breath of the dead. .. can we say overnight Doom player? lol.. been down there on many runs with 3 different chars before and after the change of necro on boss's down there. before spellweaving... 1 artie, legacy of the dread lord. after spellweaving.... i think my guildmates are gunna gank me soon!

    Oh, Really Rocks against peerless too, just cant seem to get my crimson tho *mumbles to self*

    I found that there wasn't much attention given to the quest to get the spellbook, arcane focus and gift of renewal. I understand that for a 6x GM the quest might seem nice and simple, but for a relatively new player the last step with the exodus minions and overseers is duanting. I am therefore posting a guide describing how to do it with minimum skill, for mages. I apologize that is isn't very well written, but it is the best i can do.
    The requirements are:
    The ability to cast 8th circle spells about 1:4 times.
    Either at least 200 of each reagent or an LRC suit
    Enough money to insure all items you want to keep.
    At least one more partner that fulfills these requirements.

    Make yourselves a party. It will be easier if at least one of you has uoam.

    1.Strip of everything on you except blessed items and/or bonded pets, unless you want to risk having to pay insurance for no good reason.
    2.Talk over this plan with everyone.
    3.Have every one rendezvous at gargoyle city. There is a healer and a bank there. Gather you're insured stuff. If everyone dies, come back here and try again. To get here, ask the person with uoam to lead you.
    4. Go SE.
    5.In the center of the tunnel (the ground should be brown now) have everyone summon five creatures, and say:
    All follow me
    All guard me
    6.RUN SW and then west to pass between two lava pools. The creatures you summoned will act as decoys so the various nasties wont attack you, but rather them.
    7. When you reach the building, go through the slit in the wall. Do NOT go up the stairs. It is easier to see the slit with the circle of transparency off.
    8.Step onto the starry center of the room.
    9. Release any remaining creatures, rez anyone who died, and proceed SSW.
    10.have the person/people who is/are not doing the quest stay behind the large square floor design. THe person/people who is/are doing the quest should cast an EV as far south of him/her as he/she can (or if he/she has reached the corner, as far west as he/she can). Then, edge forward, cast another EV, dispel the first, and repeat. Continue this until an EV attacks something. Cast another EV and then invis yourself. IF something goes wrong and you're under attack, go back to the rest of the party, who should be keeping up a supply of EVs.
    11. Recall out. Note: You can't gate out.
    Note: The exodi are weak to fire. Also, if paragons appear, either recall away and start all over or run for it. The paragons will probably kill you, if you arent, compared to me, extremely good.

    I find that this is actually quite fun for its own sake. Although it isnt that funny when you get hit by a paragon arcane deamon...

    with 0 spellweaving, you can cast Thunderstorm against 120 magic resist and give the target(s) the reduction to FCR (-6), but your chance to succeed is affected by the target(s)'s resist. i'm not sure how, exactly. you definitely have to use a circle for range, damage, and duration, and max duration is like 11 with a focus of 6, and resist does not change duration. Thunderstorm always reduces -6 FCR when successful (success does not mean damage alone; you can succesfully cast the spell for damage and not curse the target(s)), and the target(s) gets a debuff icon. the skill of SW might effect "hit" chance, but for the most part, SW skill seems only to effect % to cast. I think with 50 SW you can cast Thunderstorm 100% (min 10). if you have more than 6 FCR, like, if you somehow had a scrappers, a chaos shield, an inquis, and a 1/3 ring and a 1/3 bracelet, for a total of 12 FCR, your FCR would never drop below 6 FCR, and therefore, you would never be effected by Thunderstorm's FCR curse.

    with 52 spellweaving, you can cast Essence of Wind against 120 magic resist and give the target(s) the reduction to FC (-2), but your chance to succeed is affected by the target(s)'s resist. i'm not sure how, exactly. you definitely have to use a circle for range, damage, and duration, and max duration is like 10-11 with a focus of 6, and resist does not change duration. Essence of Wind always reduces -2 FC when successful (success does not mean damage alone; you can succesfully cast the spell for damage and not curse the target(s)), and the target(s) gets a debuff icon. the skill of SW might effect "hit" chance, but for the most part, SW skill seems only to effect % to cast. I think with 92 SW you can cast Essence of Wind 100% (min 42). if you have more than 2 FC, like, if you somehow had a scrappers, a chaos shield, an inquis, and a 1/3 ring and a 1/3 bracelet, for a total of 4 FC, your FC would never drop below 2 FC, and therefore, you would never be effected by Essence of Wind's FC curse.
