Effect of circling and background magic on bug quality
This table shows the influence of circling and background magic on the quality of bugs summoned. The "charged circle" had 2 Flaudia's Earmuffs (60gp) cast in it before summoning the bugs. Bugs were summoned 25 times in each context; the width of a bar represents the number of times an individual bug type was summoned.
All summonings were performed while at full hitpoints, and without changes to magic skill bonuses. All shields were plague-sized, so influence on swarm size could not be determined.
Bugs are arranged from strongest to weakest according to the bug list.
Bonuses at the time (with flat cap):
- 310 ma.sp.defensive
- 321 ma.sp.special
- 254 summoning
- 318 cursing
- 318 charming
- 256 chanting
- 230 binding
