Subject: Spell Knowledge Enhancives and IMBED

Hey everyone, there seems to be a lot of misunderstood information about spell knowledge enhancives that I'd like to clear up. A single item is limited to two spell knowledge abilities, and shouldn't have any other enhancives on the items. It fact, the limit of two was only updated after the July run of Duskruin Arena. It was formerly 1.

If you have an item that has more than 2, it will continue to work, but the issue boils down to the enhancive pause ability that can be applied to it. This was limited to just a single spell knowledge enhancive, but has been updated to work for 2 (which is now the limit of a single item). If you want to continue to use the pauses, we need to break them up. This goes for any items out there that have more than 2 spell knowledge enhancives.

Lastly, IMBED has had some restrictions for several years now on which spells could be probably placed into a magical item. That list is...

Any spell over level 20 plus 215, 219, 220, 420, 515, 517, 712, 714, 913, 919, 920, 1109, 1213, 1216, and 1700.

Feel free to save this information.
