Math Formula Needs

This is a list of articles that contain <math></math> tags somewhere in their text. It will serve as a first pass to collect which articles might be affected by a change in math presentation methods (HTML versus LaTex).

Summary: 91 items contain 'math'. 38 (42%) items contain LaTex <math>...</math> processing for formulas. Of 38 items, all are simple formulas, but 9 (24% of 38 items) require discussion on truncate / floor. Of Note: several items are already in HTML markup (most since Sep 2017).

Positive Factors Negative Factors

Of all the factors in success, Wizard spell ranks are weighted the highest in terms of how much they contribute to your overall enchanting skill. Even when diminishing returns for overtraining is considered, one rank of Wizard spell research is never worth less than one unit of anything else.

Enchanting should be considered one of the Wizardly bits that is meant to encouraging training more heavily in the Wizard base spell circle. -GM Naos

Gamemasterapproved.pngThis section has been formally reviewed and is accurate.



The precise formula to achieve a successful enchantment is not released. What is known is that the level and Wizard Base ranks of the enchanter are primary factors, and that carelessness while going through the motions (channeling while an item is still tempering) is the largest factor of failure. The following table lists all known factors (positive or negative), in no particular order. At the very least, a wizard should be uninjured, unencumbered and in a magical workshop with a familiar present.

As mentioned above, there is a minimum 3% failure rate for the final step of any enchant, regardless of the enchanter's stats, skills, level, or the level of the enchantment itself. Gift of Eonak reduces the chances of a failed cast by providing two d100 rolls and keeping the higher result. On the earlier channels during the process, it is possible to have 100% success with the right training, but the final CHANNEL will always be at most a 97% chance of success.

See the Difficulty Detection section above for the full table of Roll Result Descriptions (the second line in the log just below).

You channel at a polished kakore runestaff.
You make a good attempt!  Success!

Visible wisps of essence dance across the surface of the kakore runestaff as you chant quietly, your sure gestures guiding them to slowly coalesce into a pair of small softly glowing runic symbols.  The two lone runes flicker momentarily, the intensity of their glow increasing as their form sharpens into crisp, clean edges.  Suddenly, the symbols erupt in a cascade of tiny prismatic motes of light, encompassing the runestaff to form a shimmering layer over its surface.  Slowly, the radiant shell sinks into the runestaff, leaving behind a faint, fading aura.
Roundtime: 20 sec.
Cast Roundtime 3 Seconds.
