View Full Version : Arcane spell failure

08-17-2011, 09:54 PM
I read in ddowiki that they get up to medium armor proficiency, but i don't see anything relating to arcane spell failure. Do they just not get it with medium armor, like bards with light? Why does the battle mechanic get a 10% reduction if that is the case?

Artificers just don't really cast spells in the first place..

Mostly, you are going to need components.

I didn't actually test if they are affected by ASF or not. However, considering that the Battle Engineer Pre specifically states that it lowers your ASF by 10% I'd imagine that the class is otherwise normally affected by it.

Hope that helps :)

I don't believe any spells on the Artificers infusion list are affected by spell failure. However, since the artificer likes to use scrolls, those do incur spell failure, so getting -10% will help a lot if you're wearing medium armor.
