I may have missed your original post but....If you are pure mage i wouldnt waste time getting combat. I would max your int and wis for sure. Maybe split rest of points between charisma and constitution.

ok, here's a new question
ok, some im tring to kill a groundhog, not that difficult, but why do i keep loosing consintration
i figured i was hungry or thirsty, so i bought some iron rations and drank my flask, i wasnt hungry or thirsty, so i was like ok.....

and so i go back, try to kill a nother one, once again i loose concintration around 4 times in a row :? eh?


burning hands [ 33%/ 99%] (Quality: 69) (Mana: 20)
colour spray [ 33%/ 99%] (Quality: 69) (Mana: 25)
fireball [ 53%/ 99%] (Quality: 82) (Mana: 30)
flame blade [ 33%/ 99%] (Quality: 69) (Mana: 35)
illuminate [ 64%/ 99%] (Quality: 74) (Mana: 10)
magic missile [ 99%/ 99%] (Quality:115) (Mana: 15)
strength [ 65%/ 99%] (Quality: 90) (Mana: 20)

as you can see, magic missile is 99%, so shouldnt that mean i should only loose consintration 1 out of every 100 times? i can cast fireball more reliably with only 53%, soam i missing something?

also, why is it that i cant even scratch the groundhog when he is just laying there unconscience?

You are losing concentration probably because of low quality. I see that your magic missile quality is only at 90, which frankly, isnt that great. Once your stats increase you will do more damage and "miss" less often

Do mana gains come solely from INT or does WIS play a factor too?

"Concentration" Is a factor of many things, besides just raw percentage.
If you are wearing a lot of non-natural armour that will interfere with arcana spell casting. And I can't remember for sure, but I believe there is higher chance to lose concentration while fighting hand-to-hand.
Though sounds like you just had some badluck - regarding the 4 in a row.

As to why you can't hit a mob when it's stunned, flaw in the old Diku combat routines, which have been patched to death over the years.
I don't think any non-critical combat 'fix' is going in this year, til the whole thing gets reamed and cleaned up.

Mana

The magical energy that a person is able to collect and store is measured by his/her mana. Mana is the source of all spells. Characters with a high
INTELLIGENCE and WISDOM tend to have more mana than others because they are better at understanding its complex workings. Some races also tend to have a better knack for mana too. Casting spells will deplete your mana supply and sleeping or resting will increase it.

I agree, I believe primary factor is Intelligence and somewhat from wisdom. And of course your race as well. Some races like fairy get very high mana gains, while trolls get pitiful mana.
