Mage Weapons and skill gain

Recommended Posts

I just gm'd magery a few weeks ago using this technique.


I did magic reflection until I reached 55 I believe. Then I equipped a -20 mage weapon and kept doing the spell until gains slowed down.


I then switched to invisibility to GM.


A good guide can be found somewhere here in the mage forum.

Another neat thing to do is pump up your magery using jewels and what not as high as you can, then have a satyr discord you. Take off all your +magery stuff and put on the -mage weapon. You can gain from 3rd circle spells if you do it around the same level as I did.


What I would like to know is if you gain magery from hitting stuff with mage weapons like you do other combat skills. If so, I've got a very interesting 100% poison kryss mage weapon I'd like to try out on a golem.

I GMed magery with a -29 spell channeling short spear just yesterday. I used the guide on uoguides.com, but here's the short guide:

30-45 fireball, 45-55 lightning, 55-65 paralyze, 65-75 energy bolt. At 75 I put on the weapon and it and took me to 46 and I started with lightning again. Your skills gains won't go faster just because you're artifically lower, though, but it will take a HELL of a lot less mana than flamestrike. My patience was really tested when I got to 90 in real magery skill, as the gains were slow.
