Spell Stacking


  • Works for melee and missile combat.
  • Doesn't affect critical hits.
  • Activates when attack bar is between 20% and 80%.
  • If the Recklessness skill is lower than your attack skill (as determined by your equipped weapon), then the damage rating is reduced proportionately, but a Recklessness higher than your attack skill will not provide any advantage. The damage rating adjustment for incoming damage is also adjusted proportionally if your Recklessness skill is lower than your active attack skill.
  • While active, non-critical outgoing melee and missile hits receive the higher damage rating.
  • While active, non-critical incoming attacks from all sources are increased likewise.
