Notes

  • A magic effect must match in both Casting and Delivery Types, as well has have its "Magic Skill" set to none, in order for it to be listed and added to an enchantment.
  • A few magic effect types like Value Modifier (maybe all) need the "Recover" checkbox enabled on the magic effect for their effect to actually apply.
