120 Magery, 120 EI or 110 for Both

    Simple question. Mostly PvE mage, classic inscription template.

    I already have decent MR, FCR, and FC stats so now I'm wondering what to do with my last 20 points.

    120 Magery, 100 EI
    100 Magery, 120 EI
    110 Magery, 110 EI

    I should note that I usually use a Scrapper's with +15 EI. Thanks.

    Bring up your Magery first. Then work on your Eval.

    Higher Magery means-
    -higher % chance to cast 7th and 8th circle spells.
    -better chance to cure high poison
    -stronger heals
    -better/more mods on crafted books (I noticed you are classic Scribe mage)
    -higher chance to poison your enemy

    Are you already scrolled in Magery? because that's an expensive scroll. If not, I would stick with 115 magery.

    Eval Int improves your damage.
    Magery does not.

    However, with 100 magery, you can still fizzle 7th circle spells. It takes about 106 magery to cast those reliably.

    I'd try to figure out a way to get 110 magery and 120 EI. But 110, 110 should work well.

    You will benefit more by having higher Magery.
    High level spells don't do any damage when they fizzle. And it's annoying as hell.
    Get that Magery to at least 115.
    You'll be failing EV's, Earth ele's, An Corp's and Earthquakes a LOT less.
    Higher Magery also increases the chances for better/more mods on crafted spellbooks.

    I'm scrolled to 120 in both, but I think I'll go with 120 Magery as I'm a heavy EV user and fizzes really pee me off, especially "under fire". Thanks all.
