    Which property on an Inscription talisman should be higher?

    well assuming u mean the base and exceptional chance, then a higher base chance would be preferable. i believe the only thing that benefits from the exceptional chance is runebooks

    yeppers, that is what I meant thanks tons
  4. I wonder if the base bonus actually works for spell casting purposes.

    I have a +30% base/+20% exceptional "My Book" library talisman. When equipped and casting protection, I get the same hit on physical resistance as when it is not equipped. I understand the greater your inscription, the less physical resistance you are supposed to lose.

    I have tried equipping the talisman from 0% real skill (elf, no JOAT bonus) to 70% real skill. The talisman did not lessen the impact on physical resistance caused by the protection spell at any time.

    That leads me to believe the inscription bonus is either only in effect for crafting purposes, or specifically doesn't apply to the protection spell (by design or by bug).

    Talismans only grant crafting bonuses and have no effect on spells. Only the amount of skill points in Inscription affects the Protection, Reactive Armor, and Magic Reflection Spells

    Also, inscription bonus is more desirable than exceptional bonus. Spellbooks do not appear to gain anything by being exceptional other than your name and at GM you only have a base 50% chance to craft one.
  6. Thank you for confirming that. It seemed that way to me, but I wasn't sure.
