In addition, Water Lore determines the potential maximum number of opponents hit by the splash (See ball spells).

Potential Splash Targets

The number of targets hit by a ball spell is determined by the following calculation using Elemental Lore, Water and Multi Opponent Combat (MOC):

  • Lore Skill Modifier = (1 + √8 * [Elemental Lore, Water Ranks] - 7) / 2
  • First Roll is a random number from 0 to 8
  • Second Roll is a random number from 0 to [First Roll + Lore Skill Modifier]
  • The number of targets is the smaller number of [First Roll + Lore Skill Modifier] and [Second Roll + MOC Ranks].

(As such, training in Elemental Lore, Water contributes to both of the values from which the smaller number is chosen.)
