Mystic Focus makes a person more attuned to the arcane, providing them with new insight into spells. The resulting bonus is a boost to the caster's Casting Strength for all spell types. Because lower level characters have the most to learn about spells, they receive the greatest benefit, using a formula of (30 - caster level) with a minimum of +10 CS.

While Mystic Focus is active, warding spells from the Elemental (MnE, MjE, Wizard, Bard) and Sorcerer spheres receive a further bonus based on the caster's Magic Item Use or Arcane Symbols skill, depending on whether the subsequent warding spell is cast from a magic item or a scroll. The Elemental/Sorcerer sphere bonus does not stack with Elemental Targeting (425).

This spell can commonly be found in heavy quartz orbs. It is activated by rubbing the orb.
