Wands, Scrolls and Books now have ranges dependant on class/level?
« on: September 18, 2012, 08:56:27 PM »
I've just noticed that spellcasting items have different range (3)
in the hands of a Warrior or Ranger than they have when used
by a Wizard (10). Moreover, my high level Wizard had range of
20 for the same spells.

When did that get introduced? What's the increase based on?

I think its been like that for quite some time. I can't remember exact formula, but its either based on level or magic stat. I'm not sure it's a good idea. It's hard for a new player to understand why an item behaves differently depending on class or level or stats, unless explicitly described. I'm eager to hear your opinion.

basic range limit should be explained in opening screen when you choose class.

Having range over 10 is a needless overkill anyway.
Just remove the gain with levels/magic and leave it at the base
values for 10 (Wizard) and 3 (others).
