    Default Soul Magic - great new enhancement for Arcane Archers

    I hadn't seen the new enhancement "Soul Magic" mentioned anywhere, so I thought I'd write up my experiences with it so far.

    I actually contributed my first wiki for it at DDOWiki

    The basic idea is that as you hit enemies with arrows, you will gain a stacking set of temporary spell points. For instance, if you hit three enemies, you will get 1+2+3 temp SP. If you hit with 10 arrows, you will get 55 temp SP. Once you invoke a spell, the temp SP is reset.

    My current character is a lvl 14 wizard (mostly in Pale Master) with 1 lvl of ranger. With this enhancement, it's sorta like having unlimited spell points. In the wiki, I give some examples. One I use frequently is:

    arrow+arrow+arrow+arrow+FrostLance (+10 temp SP -10 for the Frost lance = 0 outlay)

    Anyway, if you have Arcane Archer among your enhancements, check this one out. You only need to spend 10 AP, which is very easy to do in the Arcane Archer tree.

    Also, any feedback on the wiki page would be greatly appreciated.

    Personally I stopped using it. When I had that Enhancement and hit Manyshot my FPS dropped from my usual 30-40 (Yes, I know it's low, it's all I can afford for now) to 4 FPS making the game pretty much unplayable for me. Without the Enhancement my FPS remains unchanged throughout.

    The description of the ability reads:
    Every time you strike an enemy with your bow, you gain 1 temporary spell point. This effect can stack up to 10 times.
    If what you say about it giving up to 55 SP is accurate (and I don't doubt it at this point), then is sounds very much like it's not WAI. By the description, you should be getting 10 SP max.

    Tried it. It was so annoying with the sounds and visuals I dropped it immediately. I prefer Moonbow anyway.

    It's a fair trade; give us moonbow graphics; take away lightning trap graphics.

    Mine averages mid 30s. But dang, it dropped to 4? What kind of graphic does the enhancement trigger? Multiple ice storms and acid clouds all at once?
