    Hello,

    If I have GM alchemy (80% EP bonus) and wear an EP ring with 50%, do I get 130% EP bonus? I tried using greater explosion on Artic Orge Lord but did not seem to have significant damage increase with GM alchemy.
     
  2. it stacks, but GM alchemie isnt 80% bonus, its 30% *if i remember correct*.

    or it was 10%?

    Player characters with Alchemy skill receive an inherent bonus to Enhance Potions that can exceed the 50% cap. The bonus to Enhance Potions equates to +10% for every 33 points of Alchemy (i.e., 80% at GM Alchemy).

    as for the stacking I cannot say

    As Uthar is saying, but not so clearly, the 80% is ASSUMING one has the EP ring on already, or other items totaling 50% EP, to go with the 30% from the skill.

    80% is what the total is when the 30% skill EP bonus is ALREADY STACKED with the jewelry.
