Warrior with negative Magic stat failing all the enchants.
« on: November 02, 2012, 12:11:03 PM »
This is something I've mentioned here.

It appears that SoE and the Soulstone check the Magic stat
when determining whether the enchantment was successfull.
This way, a Warrior with heavy armor and weapons, having
a massively negative Magic stat will always fail, cursing his
items instead.

I really don't mind combat and utility spells failing or backfiring
on such character, since negative Magic intuitively implies he's
gonna have a hard time trying any kind of spell, however, with
enchant spell, this is incredibly annoying. One can just as well
remove all the -Magic equips and only enchant in Forest with
no penalties whatsoever.

Bottom line - please remove the Magic-based roll for enchants.

EDIT:
Same seems to apply for Scrolls of Recharging failing. Only these
do not produce any message, just get wasted in vain.

Great stuff! Funny how things turn out. I'll take a look at it when I get back to the home office beginning of next week.

I'll change it so that trinkets and other items with "friendly" effects (enchant, recharge etc) will not fail regardless of magic stat. Items with "hostile" effects such fire, poison etc are still dependent upon a decent magic stat to be successful.

Lovely, you could leave the fantastic amnesia fail for
mapping tho, it's just too hilarious!
