    They are stats used by different chars, and all equal the amount of mana used. No toon uses 2 different ones, for example:

    Mid
    Piety = Thane, Healer, Shaman, SM, BD, RM (all casters)
    Charisma = Skald only

    Albion =
    Piety = Cleric, Friar (support classes)
    Inteligence = Necro, Wizzard, Theurg, Sorc (all casters)
    Charisma = Minstrel

    Hib
    Piety = Support classes
    Inteligence = caster classes
    Charisma = not too sure, best to ask a hib

    Depends which class you are.
    Every caster class (including hybrids) has a 'casting stat' which determines the effectiveness of their spells and the amount of power they have. In Alb all classes use Int as a casting stat except Clerics, Paladins, Reavers and Friars who use Piety, and Minstrels who use Charisma.

    You don't need more than one of those stats, if it's not your casting stat then raising it will do nothing.

    Sorry, your power pool is seperate to pie/int/char, they releate pretty much to the damage a spell can do, and indirectly to how many "buff points" you have on a support class.

    Hmm I was under the impression that +acuity also increased your available power. I shall have to do some testing.

    Acuity is something to do with buffer's and how well their buffs work, i think... also its to do with the amount of buffs you can do (conc), buff any buff class can only still do a maximum of 20 buffs.

    No it's not. Acuity is a buff that increases the base stat of caster classes. In Albion it would raise the intelligence on a Wizard for example.

    Acuity has nothing whatsoever to do with the effectiveness of buffs.

    As far as I am aware, +acuity raises your base casting stat so you do more damage. I believe your power pool size remains unchanged, and is only affected by items with the relevant ToA bonuses.

    Acuity= main caster stat
    Meaning if your a wizard, +acuity will give u more inteligence. Put same item on a cleric, and he will get + to piety from the same item.

    Its that simple, but to make sure people dont get this wrong:

    +Acuity means + to your characters MAIN casting stat. either int or piety (or cha). +12 acuity gives the same effect for a wizard that +12 intelligence does.

    Simply but: mythic made items that have Acuity so it could give stats to more types of casters.

    Raven Brrrrr! FH Subscriber

    its actually

    Piety - nobody in hib, druids and wardens use empathy
    Int - elds, animists, chanters, ments, VWs (for spells) champs (for spells)
    Charisma - bards, though they also get thier emp stat raised as they level, which does nothing at all for them.

    The poster you replied to was actually correct in saying that acuity does effect buffers but he was wrong in saying that it effects that actual buff itself. It will increase your concentration pool allowing more or better buff spells to be cast, but will have no effect on the buffs themselves as you pointed out.

    What he said. :)

    Btw +acuity items does not raise ur conc pool on a class that can use conc based buffs. The only thing I have seen that increases ur conc pool is the ml 4 perfector ability.
