    Is there any advantage to adding imbuing (when it comes to spell strength) if you already have focus in the mysticism template?

    To get max damage you need either 120 Focus or 120 Imbuing, in addition to 120 Mysticism. The damage is scaled up as you go up in skill.

    This is good, thanks. I thought this was the case but wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something, since I don't do test center.

    Also, if you want 30 SDI in PvP you cannot have both 120 Mystic and Focus...you need to go 120 Imbuing.

    I always thought if you have mystic in a template SDI for PvP was capped at 15%

    Just like pure scribe/poison mages can have 30 SDI (40 if u count scribe), mystics can too but cannot have another "casting skill" which also includes Focus (as per UOGuide.com). Weapon skills dont count so a hybrid mystic with Imbuing over Focus can have 30 SDI (scribe doest work for non-magery spells).

    I believe that the SDI page has the incorrect list of skills that affect the focus requirement. I have not tested it, but focus is not one of the skills listed in the publish 71 notes as a major skill. I think a focus mystic can have both 120 mystic and 120 focus and still get the 30 sdi. If someone has tested this and I am incorrect I apologize.
