    I built a suit for Dee to write scrolls/fill spell books. It has total mana regen of 17. Is some of this wasted? (btw, she doesn't leave the house when wearing it :lick:)

    How does mana regen compare to mana increase or lower mana cost? Which is best/better?

    I absolutely don't understand any of this stuff.

    obviously using both is best. try using a totem of void with your suit.

    use cursed ornie, totem of the void, inquis if u have a pair and maybe scrappers if thats possible while dong what u wanna do.

    then go for cursed Hat of the magi, Rune beetle carapace, rest just Mr 2 pieces.

    Correct me if Im wrong, but I dont think lower mana cost counts towards scribing mana?

    At least, it didn't at one point in time. Dont know if it's changed :)

    I think you're thinking of lower reg cost. That's no use at all, have to have the regs.

    While Nym's suit idea sounds very nice it might be a bit on the OTT side just for writing scrolls in :D.

    Thanks all though. I've learned that my MR2 bracelet is doing me no good atm, but it might if I put down the boomstick and get hold of a scrappers instead :)

    I use to have mana regeneration suits which I got from farming various monsters had mana reg. 2 per piece. With my mana reg. 3 yellow glasses, I had 13 pts. With intelligence high enough to give you 80 mana, this type of suit is all you are going to need. Remember that it is only the 8th level scrolls that seem to slow you down, but you can scribe an 8th level scrolls followed by scribing some 1st through 3rd levels scrolls until the mana max out!

    Inserting the scrolls also give the mana regeration some time to return to higher
    levels. There is a cap on how much mana regeneration is! Your biggest limitation
    is how much can fit into your backpack!

    I would have Dee wear jewelry with bonus Intelligence Stat points. This simul
    increases mana and may effect scribing results.
