How am I casting EC? (in General)

"Aegis cast Ethereal Chains on all enemy Minions (20)"

I'm usng a base EC: 0/50 (20) with a MgS, which casts at 20. All's good there, but I'm using base DM 800 (640). For a while my DM was fizzling my own EC (which I expected).

I'm also using a RoS and have been watching my max tattoo level for when my RoS protection would let my base EC cast.

My Max Tattoo is 2,576.

With recent changes, the RoS was reduced to providing aobut 1/5 it's level as DM protection. This gives me about 515.

Even if this reduces the effect (640) and not the level (800) shouldn't my DM have enough oopmh to still fizzle my 0/50 EC?

I didn't think your own DM fizzled your own ED.. I thought it only fizzled your own AMF if you had that trained. EC is a spell that still casts at zero level, like protection.

Silly me! :D

It was my own DM. The RoS was changed to 1/4 not 1/5 so I owuld only need a Max Tattoo of 2,560 to be able to use my own EC again! ;)

At least I know what to train my DM to now! :P

Your own DM will nuke your own EC as it will your own AMF.

The ROS protects 1/4 its level vs DM.

For some reason I had it in my head as 1/5 >_< LOL! ;)

All sorted now! ;)

so with a MgS you still cast base EC?

Miandrital October 31 2006 5:34 PM EST

Yeah, EC and Prot are the only two spells that work with MgS

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 31 2006 5:44 PM EST

Oh yeah! ;)

What use is base EC though?

Mages and Enchanters get reduced to Zero Dex. ;)

Great if you're a tank and have been reduced to Zero dex as well! :D

Plus, what else are you going to put there? :P

Base EC helps my chanter get double hits in ranged even when his haste based dex is nuked by dm?

Miandrital October 31 2006 5:48 PM EST

Wow GL, using a RoS. I never that I would see this day...

"Yeah, EC and Prot are the only two spells that work with MgS "
Decay :)

Miandrital October 31 2006 6:09 PM EST

I wasn't so sure about decay so I just left it out :P

The other reason for a base EC is to drive those pecky PL minions dex or str below 0 so your leech starts on the first blow.

Nice Ranger! :D

Yeah Miandrital, I feel a little cheap! Dirty even! :P
