Evaluate Intelligence
A talented spellcaster can recognize a dangerous opponent by the glint of intelligence in his or her eyes. With the Evaluate Intelligence skill, you can size up your opponents before combat, and add to the destructive power of your spells.
Using Evaluate Intelligence

To use the Evaluate Intelligence skill to evaluate the Intelligence of a player:
  • Click the blue gem next to the skill on your skill list.
  • Target the person you wish to evaluate.
If successful, you are given a description of your target's mental capacity based on the responses below.

Intelligence Comment
1-9 Slightly less than a rock
10-19 Fairly stupid
20-29 Not the brightest
30-39 About average
40-49 Moderately intelligent
50-59 Very intelligent
60-69 Extremely intelligent
70-79 Extraordinarily intelligent
80-89 Like a formidable intellect, well beyond even the extraordinary
90-99 Like a definite genius
100+ Superhumanly intelligent in a manner you cannot comprehend

Evaluate Intelligence is also involved in calculating the potential damage done by mages. When you cast a spell, the potential damage is calculated based on several factors, such as the spell, its circle, your ability, etc. (call this base damage). The damage then gets scaled based on the mage's Evaluate Intelligence. At 0 Eval Int, the damage is actually reduced by 70%. At 50 Eval Int, the damage is reduced by 25%. At approximately 78 skill, Eval Int has no effect, and beyond that it provides a bonus, up to a 20% bonus at Grandmaster and a 38% bonus at Legendary.
