Spray Acid level 3?

Recommended Posts

Between Avernum 3 and 4, Jeff changed the way spells worked. In the first trilogy, increasing a spell level gave different and usually more powerful effects. Starting with Avernum 4, increasing a spell's level only increased damage or duration and no longer added extra effects to a spell. So a spell level was equivalent to increasing mage or priest spell levels, or adding to spellcraft and magery. All of those would increase all your spells instead of just one spell.

And to be extra clear, the increases to damage or duration are TINY compared with a spell level boost from the earlier games. You spell "level" is just added to your spellcraft and your mage/priest skill to determine your bonus for that spell. That's it! So typically it will increase duration by a turn, or increase damage by one die.
