Spell problems

PostAuthor: Tel » Fri Feb 07, 2014 8:19 am

I'm not going to say not working as intended... but that's just because the wiki for some reason might be out of date, or incorrect in some way I don't understand.

Tomnan is current lv29: Barbarian (15) / Wizard (3) / Palemaster (11)
Skills: UMD (0 ranks), Spellcraft (31 ranks)
Other: Stonewall-Rager lv8


When using the item "Essence of Power" which lists itself as Greater Magic Weapon CL (10) 1/day, his weapon is enchanted to +4.
The expected result is only +3, where GMW is +1/(5 CL) + militant. In this case that is 10/5 =2 and lv6 militant bonus adds +1. 2+1=+3 enchantment.

When casting Greater Magic Weapon, his weapon is enchanted to +2.
This is the expected result, as Wizard + odd_palemaster = 3+6 = CL9. 9/2 + 1 = 2.8 which rounds down to +2.


Not that it's on Avlis but to confuse this even further... Tomnan gets +5 from the same item on Hala/Ysgard!



on Avlis this would correlate with Spellcraft also giving the same +1 CL / 5 ranks (bumping the item to CL16) as UMD does.
on Arkaz/Hala I believe that GMW is calculated at CL/4, rather than CL/5, which would make the same CL 16 a base +4.



Notes of reference:

Wiki for Greater Magic Weapon wrote:You empower the touched weapon with a +1 enhancement bonus per 5 caster levels (maximum of +5) with bonuses for militant levels. You can either directly target the weapon you want to cast this spell on, or you can target a creature, affecting the creature's main hand weapon.


Wiki for Greater Magci Weapon Militant Bonus wrote: Greater Magic Weapon:

Militant Level 0-5: Nothing. The spell will give you a +1 to +5 enhancement bonus to your weapon, plus the effects of any metamagic feats the caster uses.
Militant Level 6-15: You get a +1 bonus to the spell's effect. The spell will give you a +2 to +6 enhancement bonus to your weapon, plus the effects of any metamagic feats the caster uses.
Militant Level 16-25: The spell duration is increased by 50%. This stacks with extend spell, plus the effects of any other metamagic feats the caster uses.
Militant Level 26-35: You get a +1 bonus to the spell's effect. The spell will give you a +3 to +7 enhancement bonus to your weapon, plus the effects of any metamagic feats the caster uses.
Militant Level 36-40: You get a +1 bonus to the spell's effect. The spell will give you a +4 to +8 enhancement bonus to your weapon, plus the effects of any metamagic feats the caster uses.


Version 1.8.0.3d Changes/Bug Fixes wrote:- Added UMD bonus to NON-ARTIFICED casting items. These include amulets, unique items, rings, etc. Bonus is +1 to caster level/SpellDC per 5 base ranks (not including modifiers, skill focuses, etc.) in the Use Magic Device Skill.
- Added additional "fighter feat bonus" to Greater Magic Weapon. Fighters who have a weapon specialization feat in the weapon being enchanted will now receive an additional "massive crit" bonus based on their fighter levels. ONLY fighter levels will count towards this bonus.

SHS 1.8 in general wrote:- Hooked epic spells to include PM levels/HW levels in calculating duration/bonuses.

I can't be certain that this is going on... but with all the information I have from the wiki there, I *believe* it's for some reason counting his Spellcraft to boost the level of the NON-ARTIFICED item



and god I wish there was a spoiler tag that I knew how to use since a lot of this info is just more than most people who look at this are ready for.

All I can say is, working as intended for Arkaz. Spell effects, and other systems, are different between each of the four worlds of CoPaP.
