So, I think there might be a bug with soul magic. As soon as I stop shooting, it disappears and I cant use it for its intended purpose. Or maybe I just havent noticed it discounting sp cost.

soul magic gives you temporary SP. it doesn't provide a 'discount' per se, but all the SP are used (regardless of how few you actually needed to cast) and it resets the counter to 0 when you cast a spell

check the info here (http://ddowiki.com/page/Soul_Magic)

you also only have a 1 minute window to use those SP.

There's a visual bug with temp SP in general where it will appear to continue stacking (even though it's really not) beyond what it's supposed to as long as you're triggering it constantly. As soon as you stop triggering it, the UI will catch up and show the correct value. Just Rewards with shiradi is another place it's noticeable.

Its quite funny actually, at times it appears that I have replenished my entire bar of SP only to have it disappear, my dreams crushed and me living at the side of the road like a hobo...

I've gotten up over 6000 sp with Just Shiradi, only to see it fall back down to 2000 once there was nothing left to MM spam.

Well that's depressing.

It also causes a lot of lag, as it constantly processes in the combat log and has a graphic display as well. :(

I wish they would fix this one.

I will probably not take this one again until it is changed.

Yes it was wigging out my PC and causing tons of lag too.
