# Spell Damage

Magery spell damage is calculated using the following formulas in the order listed.

The value of DAMAGE SCALAR after these calculations determines how much damage a player or human NPC character can inflict with damaging spells such as Explosion, Energy Bolt, Magic Arrow, etc...

##### Eval Int vs Magic Resist

If the CASTER'S Evaluate Intelligence skill is higher than the TARGET'S Magic Resist skill then DAMAGE SCALAR = (1.0 + ((CASTER EVAL - TARGET RESIST) / 500.0)

Otherwise, if the TARGET'S Resist skill is higher than the CASTER'S Eval skill then DAMAGE SCALAR = (1.0 + ((CASTER EVAL - TARGET RESIST) / 200.0)

##### Inscription Bonus

If the CASTER'S Inscription skill is equal to 100.0, and their Tactics and Alchemy skills are both less than or equal to 30.0 skill, then DAMAGE SCALAR + 5% bonus.

##### Magery Damage Calculation

The DAMAGE SCALAR is then adjusted based on the CASTER'S Magery skill level. -25% damage penalty at 0.0 Magery, increasing to full damage (0% penalty) at 100.0 skill.

##### Double Damage To Monsters

If the TARGET is neither a player character nor a human NPC then DAMAGE SCALAR x 2.
