Hi! You removed the line "The ability to float a shield is determined by the caster's bonus in magic.methods.physical.binding and the shield weight." from Endorphin's Floating Friend.

What does this mean?

If it's been proven not true you should put something like "The ability to float a shield is not determined by the caster's bonus in magic.methods.physical.binding" or something.

Also, does the shield weight not matter anymore when trying to float it?

There was confusion on the talker with somebody thinking higher binding meant less knockdowns, which is wrong. However, what the wiki stated is correct, and I think the wording of it was fine;
"The ability to float a shield is determined by the caster's bonus in magic.methods.physical.binding and the shield weight."
That is true as far as I know - that the ability to INITIALLY FLOAT is impacted by your binding - if your binding is way too low for the shield, I believe you can't even float it - but my skills are too low to test this, need a newbie with low binding but still able to cast EFF, to try float something very heavy, and see what happens and get the error message.
The only confusion was somebody interpreting that line in the wiki to think it meant higher binding = more knockdown resistance, which is false (and disproved in my EFF research book)

Ok thanks.
I rewrote that part to hopefully be clearer.
