Spell Aiming
This is a Pure Mage's primary attack skill, and most War Mages also find it important as a backup form of attack. Proficiency in Spell Aiming factors directly into the AS of bolt spells, and should therefore be double trained each level for maximum chance to hit your targets.

Secondary Skills

SENSE (verb)
Clerics are able to use this verb to inform them if an Arkati or Greater Spirit has a particularly strong presence in the area. Knowledge of the Minor Sanctuary (213) spell enables them to use it to determine if the room is currently under the effect of the spell. This verb is quite useful when using Prayer of Commune (330), and Tier 5 of the Holy Receptacle (325).
