Levels of success

There are two levels of success in this spell. A full success will identify the artifact and charges remaining, and produce an extra line indicating that the caster will always recognize that particular artifact, permanently enabling the caster to recharge that artifact type. A 'half' success will identify the artifact and charges remaining, but the caster will have to re-identify it in the future until a full success is achieved.

The caster's ability to identify higher level artifacts is determined by their bonus in the relevant items skill, e.g. a high bonus in magic.items.held.wand is required to identify a balsa wand.

Example

Casting
You prepare to cast Fabrication Classification Identification on the red staff.
You wonder about the red staff.
You peer at the red staff, probing at its ticklish parts.
You coax the red staff to make it reveal its basic identity.
Success
The weave indicates that the red staff is a Frottjor's staff, with eight charges remaining.
With the pattern of the weave mirroring the artifact, you realise that you will now always recognise a wand of colouring when you see one.
Failure
You are unsure of the pattern mirrored in the weave.
To others
Wizard seems to squint at a long white wand.
Wizard pokes at a long white wand.
Wizard seems to be begging a long white wand to do something.
