    And imbuing is absolutely RIDICULOUS to train. :/

    This is true and just clicked in my head. Imbuing as a major supporter of mysticism is kinda hard to raise....

    Your anology is flawed.

    1. Eval to Magery is like Eval to Mysticism.

    2. Inscription to Magery is like Imbuing to Mysticism.

    Inscribe sure does not raise with you cast magery spell now does it?
    Inscribe gives more damage to all spells, modifies Ractive Armor and Magic Relection, Imbuing modifies it's own share of mysticism spells.

    The only difference is Inscribe DO increase damage on damaging mysticism spells as well as magery spells while Imbuing ONLY helps with mysticism and has nothing to do with magery.

    I wish imbuing could raise with mysticism spell casting. :mad:
     
  5. you still get the point i am sure!! i could see imbuing needing mysticism after all it is infusing magic into items but the way it is now is stupid

    I know exactly what you are saying, but dev can easily compare imbuing to inscribe and call it "working as intended". I want a legendary mystic but I really dont see the day i finish 120 imbuing happening anytime soon

    Imbuing is, though, a skill that actually has it's own use. Musicianship, Eval Int and Animal Lore are more or less completely used to back up other skills, but Imbuing is actually used for something. (Okey, people look up stats of creatures with animal lore, but that's it.) Makes sense to me that it doesn't automatically go up while using Mysticism, good point to compare it to Inscription.

    Geez man who is crying here???

    Oh, I see.
     
  10. ok you dont HAVE to have imbuing to 120 Mysticism so forget that. spell damage from Mysticism is based on the casters imbuing skill this is where the comparision to Eval came in as eval is tied to spell damage correct?? inscription is a CHOICE you make for that increase tings more correct?? with Mysticism i ass/u/me you have to have imbuing if you want any decent damage. if as i stated before imbuing needed Mysticism it would make sense as its infusing magic into items !!!

    No what was needed was another skill to do what Imbuing does for Mysticism. Like GimmeImLazy and have Imbue a new crafter skill. I think it is wrong that if I'm a 120 tailor wanting to Imbue my "cry myself to sleep" blanky, I get no bonus. Imbueding the way it is now saves slots and doesn't tax a loaded crafter with another skill. (Arms Lore) Everyone is confused on thinking they also need to put imbueding on a Mule for the crafter aspect to the skill. That way if you wanted a imbueder that can kill for their own loot to unravel.............you would have to waste an extra 100 points on a skill.

    As a mage I feel jilted and I think evaul and scribe should be combined so I can free up 100 points. And a mystic should gain nothing from being a scribe if the two cannot be combined.

    Code Mages the Imbueding is just right. Don't let the PS3 generation of I need to beat this in a weekend so mom and dad have to get me a new game for next weekend. You whiners need to be glad you don't have only dice and an imagination to play a game with friends.
