Spell Level

Spell Level indicates a mage's skill in handling magic. Spell Level is acquired by learning new spells and is usually the primary factor in determining the strength of a mage's spells. It is advisable to research all available spells early after the creation of a mage in order to utilize higher Spell Level (and therefore stronger spells).

Basics

  • The number and difficulty of your spells known determine your actual SL -- researching or purchasing spells will also increase your spell level.
  • Favour or Disfavour from Magic can temporarily affect Spell Level.
  • Some Spells' effects are not based on Spell Level.
  • A change in spell level does not immediately affect enchantments that were already cast and still in effect.
    • For example, if you cast Plant Growth with +20 spell level because of Magic's favor, it keeps in effect as long as you maintain the upkeep, usually weeks longer than the god favor lasts.
  • Spell level also somewhat influences Net Power
  • With the skill Grand Enchanter, enchantments are more powerful. Level 8 Grand Enchanter is comparable to Magic's favour bonus in strength for enchantments only (but permanent).



Standard Spell Levels

The spell levels for fully researched mages differ depending on server:
