Very Strange

    I'm raising Magery for one of my Tamers on my main Mage (120 Eval, Med and Focus, 98.4 Magery). My suit is 102 LRC and I've counted it at least 10 times.

    I cast Corp Por and it succeeds, I cast again and it fails, I cast again and it says I need more reagents, I cast again and it is successful.

    This has been going for over an hour. Maybe 1 out of 5-6 casts I haven't enough reagents. Any ideas??? Why???

    i know for years i had a mule who would get that message every once in a while, and i would count up his suit and i would swear up and down i was over 100 LRC.

    then one day i noticed that one of the pieces (the gloves.... its allways the damn gloves!) was LMC and not LRC.
    so i was infact under 100 LRC.

    so that would be my first suggestion to you.
    have someone else count your suit for ya.

    short of that..... i dont know

    oh, i did notice here in the last couple months that if i was casting too fast i would get strange results.
    like fizzling on the spell even though i had protection on and stuff like that.

    try equipping another lrc item on + your lrc set to set if that helps, i always run 105 lrc, idk iv had this happen in abyss before i added the extra +5 to be safe
    if your not using a boomstick try adding that to increase lrc temporary to see if it affects it.

    Possibly one of your pieces is at 0 durability and needs repairing? Not sure if that affects LRC or not.

    I was very careful to separate LMC from LRC and all my items are at 100% durability. It may be the result of casting too fast...I'll try slowing a bit!

    I try to keep 105 or above on. If I have below that, I occasionally will get a failure on sometimes simple spells.

    It seems to be something to do with it being very close to 100, almost as though it doesn't count 3 or 5%, or that there's some 1-2% "failure" range that you hit when you're very close to 100.

    Sounds like you need to use the EC. It will tell you exactly how much LRC you have without having to count it...

    you haven't been interacting with the Sphynx have you? One of the things that he does when you have your fortune read by him is a reduction in the amount of lrc on your suit. and it lasts for 24 hrs.

    Thanks for the info, everyone.

    In the past I have run at exactly 100 LRC with no problems.

    No Sphynx contact.

    Still happening tonight.

    Checked LRC count twice tonight...still 102

    Not a really big deal. Slows down training slightly. But it shouldn't happen.

    I used to get that also but changed my suit to 106 LRC and wear an arcane cloak. The cloak runs out of charges every once and a great while, but another arcane gem and I am good to go.

    just for ****s and giggles

    what you should do is rotate out a piece at a time with a maxed out piece.... just to see which one is causeing you the problem.

    would be kinda interesting to know.

    if you want drop me a line and ill imbue you a leather suit with 18LRC on each piece so you can rotate each out.

    just one of those 1am interesting things.

    casting too fast is not a cause for lrc issues. otherwise every pvper in UO couldn't be a mage. short of using a program to cast at top speed, you aren't casting as quickly as pvpers. What does this mean? You have under 100% lrc. I get better than 5 out of 6 with over 90% lrc.

    Well, if you r out hunting or pvp'g, a possibility might be being hit with curse/weaken.

    Could be enough to drop your str below the required min str for some of the pieces.

    Had a problem with that a year or 2 back chars suit was 101 lrc, called a gm (yes one showed up) said the issue is known and that a suit of 105 lrc should stop the message from happening. It did work, so try 105 lrc.

    I was doing this just to raise my Tamer's Magery from 98.4 to GM. Just blasting non-casters for speed and ease and I got to my goal today so I'm finished with that.

    Thanks for the feedback and suggestions.
