    Default +Spell Damage Cap?

    Anyone know what the current +Spell Damage Cap is? Does it scale with level?

    I was wondering that to.. i got some items with 3 less int and a ton more spell damage and my spell actually read it went down by 1 point...

    Spell damage caps are really dumb imo...

    I thought that spell damage (listed in the examine tooltip) wasn't updated using +spell damage from gear?

    If that's the case, then naturally your spell damage in the tooltip would go down because you have less int, which would impact what's displayed in the tooltip.

    It is. The easiest way is to examine a Single-Target DoT which would otherwise say something like:

    "Inflicts 300-400 magic damage instantly and every 2 seconds"


    With +150 Spell damage it would say:

    "Inflicts 450-550 magic damage on target"
    "Inflicts 300-400 magic damage every 2 seconds"

    Unless this has changed the cap is 50% of the spells dammage, IE if you cast a spell and it does 1000 dammage the maximum BOE that can be applied to it is 500 dmg. This was changed on test right before ROK (it used to be 100%), if anything has changed with that someone can correct me. Currently as an illusionist I think im looking for around a 600-700 boe at max.

    Well I've just finished the Kunzar's Edge series of quests and I've already gotten some treasured rewards to replace my EOF set gear. I've also seen people link some of the legendary rewards that lie in waiting for more solo quests further on down the road.

    I think I'm almost +400 spell damage now just with this stuff, granted +85 of that is from +mental adornments which tbh I'm not sure if those weigh into the cap at all.

    We'll just have to see how high we can go - unless someone who is completely decked out in +spell damage gear can lend any insight....

    SolRo cloak no longer gives any +spell dmg
    Adornments (+45mental for me) on my symbols no longer give +spell dmg (not sure on NEW adornments)

    up to +635 spell dmg, should be up to 790 with these 2 things not working...

    and no its not profit not picking it up, when i switch out armor with the adornment vs without, no change in spell dmg either...

    so it is bugged, /feedback

    OK, so here, the +spell dmg has to be IN THE STATS for it to get added to spells, and Sony seemed to miss that fact. If you look carefully the first 2 items add to spell dmg just fine, and the last 2 items do NOT get added to spell dmg because they are NOT up with the stats.

    This really needs to get fixed (hopefully its only t7 adornments).

    Hope that helps...
