Training magery on a new character - problem!

    Just started training magery on a new character. I've been spamming bless on myself with a mage weapon with a mage skill penalty. Currently my magery is at 61.1(real), however, I noticed that I fizzle bless 100% of the time now, with my mage weapon NOT equipped. I don't fizzle any other 3rd circle spells, or even 4th circle for that matter. I've switched characters and tried both clients, still happening. Any idea how to fix this problem?
     
  2. Once you're blessed, the spell will fizzle until the buff has worn off.

    Do you have Evaluate Intelligence?

    Spells like Bless, that require Eval, will fizzle if the spell would give no appreciable bonus to your stats, or if they would do 0 damage to the target.

    Which actually means that humans can train with some spells (because of the 20 Eval from Jack of all Trades) that Elves cannot.

    For the most part, spells that do targeted damage, do area damage, raise stats, or lower stats require Eval (one of the few exceptions is Mind blast, but it's not affected by SDI either)

    Actually, I think Duke may be wrong, in that the spell is cast, but it resets the timer - at least, that's how it seems to work with my casters.

    Ahhhh, thank you guys! My character is an elf, without eval! So that must be the problem, thanks again.
