I have a tiefling alchemist. All my vials cast at level 33. I took Master of spell vials and still the combat log says I'm casting at level 33.

Yes it works. It's the combat log that is misleading - it says you are casting at level 33 even though any of those caster levels above your maximum caster level will have no effect.

Specifically my last post dated 04-25-2020:


Tested again at level 24 with Master of Spellvials in Epic Normal Lords of Dust. Draconic Incarnation 5. Fire Spell Power 587. (No Maximise or Empower).

Caster level 31.

Expected damage per non-crit non-resisted vial at caster level 31 if not capped by MCL = 5.5 * 6.87 * 31 = 1171.

Actual average damage per non-crit non-resisted vial at caster level 31 (sample size 10) = 1176.

So I am getting my full caster level. As I have +4 Max caster level, this means that Master of Spellvials raises the Maximum Caster Level of Multivial (non-SLA version) to at least 27, and it is therefore reasonable to assume it raises it to 30.

(Also confirmed that results of Single Vial SLA with Master of Spellvials are consistent with its MCL being raised from 10 to 20 by Master of Spellvials)
