It could involve the skill decay theory if you have hit your cap. Maybe your not casting the correct circle of magery to have a good chance of gaining. Afew reasons.

P.S. Also depends on what your version of long is.

Are you casting the right spells? As your skill level gets higher, you get better at Magery and have to cast more difficult spells to keep gaining skill.

Here is a good training chart on what to cast at what skill level:

Get a wand -29 magery... or weapon with SC... and - magery.

That will take you to 67,3...
Cast lightning bolt at your spellbook... check for gains.
If none, move up to MindBlast... check for gains.

Some more tips...

hmm... which shard are you playing on? If you're on Drachenfels, I can give one to you. Probably the fastest way ;)

Or you could use finduo.com or a similar site to check if one is for sale on your shard.

You can get -magery skill wands from almost any treasure chest.

It really doesn't have to be -29. If you did the Magery quest in New Haven you can get a -10 Staff which more than suffices. You also need to be casting difficult spells for the best chance at gains (Mathetmatically I think the best range is 30-40%, but if you want to hunt or something then aim for 50-60%).

Also, you can gain Magery skill with a -Mage Weapon the same way you would gain Swordsmanship, but it's an incredibly slow process. It would be better to cast your spells and then hit things when you're low on mana.
