Discworld Skills

Magic.spells.offensive is a skill which is mostly used to determine the power and casting speed of offensive wizard and witch spells.

All damage-dealing offensive spells increase in damage based on the caster's bonus in this skill. Furthermore, all offensive witch spells have a minimum level requirement in this skill in order to be learned.

Damage caps and multipliers

Some spells have caps on the amount of damage they can do, regardless of your bonuses. Uncapped spells have a damage multiplier.

The damage of an uncapped spell = ((offensive + average of methods) / 2) * damage multiplier. In other words, half of the damage comes from offensive, half comes from the average of the methods.

For example, say your bonuses are 450 offensive, 300 fire, 330 evoking, 330 enchanting, 350 animating, 380 channeling (averaging 338 for the 5 methods). (450 + 338) / 2 = 394. The damage multiplier for Pragi's Fiery Gaze is x1 to x5, so you will deal between 394 and 1970 damage (average 1182) determined randomly to each target hit by the spell.

Spells with a damage cap

Kelleflump's Irritating Demon 400-900 (average 650) + 50-500 over several minutes 3-4 rounds
