How exactly does Karma effect Necromancy spells?

Discussion in 'UO Spellcaster' started by FoodStamp [GL], Aug 28, 2009.

  1. The stratics guide says that only 'Summon Familiar: Dark Wisp' is effected by Lower Karma ratings: the lower the caster's karma, the higher the mana regeneration is.

    So, what other Necromancy spells are effected by Low Karma, and how exactly are they effected?

    I did not look it up, but I think karma effects everything with a necro.

    Spell Damage, Spell Duration of Curses, just about anything.
    Unless they changed something.

    Should be quite the opposite than with Chiv.

    Taken from uoguide.com/karma:

    Karma is also integral the Necromancer's calling. Negative karma can increase the effectiveness of certain necromatic arts. One of the creatures that can be summoned by the Necromancy spell Summon Familiar is the Shadow Wisp. A Shadow Wisp so summoned will regenerate mana for the Caster and those friendly to the caster only if they have a negative karma. Plainly stated, in such instances a Dread Lord will receive more mana than a Sinister Lord. In September of 2005, Publish 36 added a new Item Property, that of Increased Karma Loss, which grants a higher rate of karma loss for those casting Necromancy spells. Currently, Increased Karma Loss is only found on the Necromancy spellbook, the Ossian Grimoire.
