Many moons ago when I first made a mage it was better to train your eval before your magery, I was just wondering if that remains true today and were I may find an updated skills guiide for magery/eval

Thanks:grin:

I never had to train my eval - it GM'd on its own while I trained magery. Not sure these days, as my last mage was trained years ago :)

When blackrock was up, I did train a mage to 107...and Eval Int went up with magery to 94 passively. No additional training required.

No, Febblemind yourself for Eval. Yes, if you train resist with febbleminding yourself then you should be done with eval before your resist is finished.

Magery you can gain from casting on a vendor. Casting appropriate spells for skill level. A high minus mage weapon could help out a bit too.

I trained Magery by casting spells onto my spellbook. My Eval just GMed on it's own while training Magery. Like Darius said you shouls use -magery items to lower your skill and cast easier/cheaper spells for gains.

Tuka :cool:

Your Eval will GM before you magery, but the above 100, your magery gains are faster. I'm currently at 115 magery 112 Eval, 120 seems a long way off yet. A few more days training no doubt, but I need a 120 magery 1st, already got the eval scroll. Use a -29 wand to train with. Woirk up to 40 natural, then use a -20 black staff. Now train to 40 again, then equip the -29 wand. Make sure you have 2/6 casting, the wand will take you down to 1/6. Now you can train as high as you want.

We roll mad deep refers to having a large posse or to having a group of people that shouldn't be messed with. We would say that if we had a large group of people barhopping with us.

Ordo 4 Life yo, we roll mad deep would mean, I am an Ordo forever and we are group to reckon with.

Anyway, if I had to choose, I would train Eval up before magery. Eval to me is more important because it directly affects the amount of damage you do with a spell. So basically, if I had a choice between 120'ing eval, and 120'ing magery, I'd go eval.

Why train eval before magery, train at the same time is the quicker way forward. I got 115 magery and 113.8 eval when I trained. So now I've got to get Eval to 120 :(

Why don't you do like everyone else said and equip a wand then go to twisted weald and get discorded by the satyr, invis yourself so he stops targetting you and cast away, as long as you stay on the same screen as him you can gain good cause you will be discorded.

Always use a wand to train, ever tried gaining magery with 118 magery with no want, trust me, its quicker to be at 90.
