Skill Gaining and MR

    Just a quick question, probably one with the answer right in front of me but; I was wondering if MR has an effect on the gain of Meditation and Focus?

    Like, since you're regenerating more mana would you be gaining more?

    In other words, is the skill gain based on the mana points regenerated or the time you spend regenerating?
     
  2. Okay... it's been a while but this is from memory. It's a bit of both, but in practice having high MR seems to help. You gain Med/Focus from percent mana loss... the lower the skill the less mana you need to have lost to gain, and visa-versa... the higher the skill the more mana needs to be lost to gain.

    You can also gain a second, third, fourth time as you are regenerating. But if you gain too fast, then you miss the repeat opportunity, based on the skill-gain timer and randomness.

    But I've found that gains are faster if you can find the sweet spot for your skill level and keep your mana below this point. Having higher MR items on may help you keep enough mana to cast or whatever you are doing to keep your mana at this level.

    Long story short... lots of MR, find sweet spot and keep mana below this point. Use Med skill for faster Med gains.

    That may not be absolutely correct, as I said it is from memory.
