      198 (1.1 * 180) added damage with Oolacile Ivory Catalyst. Very good bang for your buck, especially on a Dex build with Ricard's Rapier, BSS, or PGCS

        Is this strictly a damage buff? Or could it deal less damage overall against enemies with high magic resist?

          This probably the most disappointing spell of all. Magic adjust can't be increased leaving no scaling and a forgotten form of combat. Your only choice is enchanted modification on your weapon leaving physical damage in the dust. If you go magic it still reduces physical stat bonus decreases. Astoria strait sword is bs giving C bonus across the board except int. Where is the dex/int build weapons? Does int not have a big place in the story for the supporting weapons?
