umm...if somehow you're unable to cast for whatever reason, at least you can defend yourself for a sec? I dunno :(

you can use a mage weapon to melee fight also, and do so at a skill level equal to your adjusted magery score. Using this method, you can gain magery while fighting, the same as you would use a sword to gain swordsmanship. With mage weapons lacking Spell Channelling, I would guess this to be their only real purpose.

Aside from that, as you mentioned, you can cast spells from a lower circle to gain magery while using a -skill mage weapon that has spell channel.

Hope this helps!

Sorry if I hijack this thread, but I got another question concerning mage weapons:

Being a Swordsman with 0 Magery, what happens if I use a Mage Weapon Sword? Will I be fighting with my 120 Swordsmanship, or will it always be overridden by magery?

no affect..only affects magery, not your weapon skill
