    To max out GoR(regen benifits) Do i need 120 weaving? Will my SWing skill effect the amount/duration of this spell?

    I am interested in becoming a warrior tamer weaver. Droping bushido for weaving.
    110 taming
    110 lore
    100 macing
    100 tactics
    100 vet
    70 chiv
    110 SW (???) how high do i need this for Gift of Renewal to be most effective

    Im looking to solo some very nasty paragons/peerless
    And what is the exact amount healed from this spell at the highest skill/circle (gem) and the varying skill/circle lvls if anyone has the info pls post it for me
  2. First: My source

    Gift of renewal lasts longer based on your skill in spellweaving. The difference between 100 and 120 skill is about 50 seconds (4:10 for 100 skill, 5 minutes for 120 skill, per UOGuide). You also get extra time for a higher level focus.

    So the more skill, the better. I've found in practice that if you can get the high level focus, you can get away with less skill. At 90 spellweaving and a level 5 focus, my bard can run into the middle of a level 3 champion spawn and ignore everything while I spam area effect spells. My warrior, with 20 weaving from jack of all trades, can do the same in a level 2 champion spawn, but not a level 3. The time difference is quite significant as well.

    Ok so skill is time. Not amount of points healed per round?
  4. I can't give you the exact numbers on that, but higher skill does heal more points per second, which is why my JOAT warrior can only run head first into smaller spawns than my spellweaving mage.

    the recast timer starts after it wears off?

    so now matter what your spell weaving skill you have the same wait before you can pop another?

    how to get 4mins+?? i am at 110 sw, and with no focus, last 30seconds, with
    a lvl4 focus, gift of renewal only last for 70 or so seconds, no where near the 4mins mark.
    Anyone knows what i am doing wrong??Is it affected by karma?
    i am a red with
    magery 120
    eval int 120
    resist 115
    wrestling 120
    medi 120
    spellweaving 110+ soon to be 120
  7. You do have a point there. I just went and did a few experiements and found out that the UOguide page on gift of renewal was completely wrong. And with that: my new data.

    Spellweaving 0, focus 0, gift of renewal heals 5 HP per 2 seconds for 30 seconds.
    Spellweaving 110 focus 0, gift of renewal heals 9 HP per 2 seconds for 30 seconds.
    Spellweaving 0, focus 1 (nobody to help me with the experiment), heals 5 HP per 2 seconds for 40 seconds.
    Spellweaving 110 focus 1 heals 9 HP per 2 seconds for 40 seconds.

    And my conclusion is, base time is 30 seconds, regardless of skill. Each level of focus grants 10 seconds to the time. Your skill level changes the rate of healing by about 1/2 hit point per second per 12 points of skill, with a minimum of 2.5 hit points per second.

    I could refine that into an actual formula given time and resources (or just more data), but I'm lazy, so I won't.

    I apologize for giving the wrong information earlier in the thread (and in other threads for that matter). Sure teaches me to trust things I read on the internet.
