Evaluating Intelligence is used for its ability to increase the damage and effectiveness of Magery spells. When you cast a spell, the potential damage is calculated based on several factors, such as the spell, its circle, your ability, etc. The damage then gets scaled based on the mage’s Evaluate Intelligence.
- Provides a bonus to base spell damage against creatures equivalent to 66.67% * (Eval Int Skill / 100)))
- Provides a bonus to base spell damage against players equivalent to 50% * (Evaluating Intelligence Skill / 100)
- There is a 10% spell damage cap on supplemental skills (tracking, camping, inscribe, etc). This cap does not consider what your evaluating intelligence skill is at, therefore if you have 0 skill in evaluating intelligence, you cannot gain 20% spell damage by using tracking and camping together. However, you could have 100 evaluating intelligence and 100 tracking and gain 60% spell damage increase.
- Up to 50.0 skill can be trained by a NPC mage or scribe vendor.
- Skill gains for Evaluating Intelligence up to 70.0 are accelerated in the New Player Dungeon.
- Evaluating Intelligence gains passively when the player uses magery.
- While Evaluating Intelligence can be trained through active use this is the slower method.
