Focus Effects

From RetroQuest Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Foci are effects on items that give bonuses to your spell-casting ability. There are several basic categories of foci:

  • Improved Damage
  • Burning Affliction
  • Extended Duration
  • Extended Range
  • Improved Healing
  • Mana Preservation
  • Spell Haste
  • Regent Conservation
  • Pet Focus

Each category of focus is further subdivided by strength of effect, type of effect, and level that effect applies to. All foci have an upper level bound; Improved Damage I only works on spells 1-20, Improved Damage II only works on spells 1-40, and so on. Foci have decreased performance when used on spells higher than their maximum level. Each level above the focus that the spell is (the spell, not the caster) the focus will provide 5% less performance. (This is as a % of the focus, not as an absolute. So, a 50% focus being used on a spell one level too high provides a 47.5% boost.) Some foci only apply to a specific subset of spells; Gelidran Rage only works on cold spells, while Pyrilen Rage only works on fire spells. It is very common for effects to only work on beneficial or detrimental effects.
