Effect on magic defence[edit source]

Does the temporary increase in Magic level effect a player’s resistance to magic attacks? Is it helpful in quests such as Sins of the Father boss-battle where the magic attacks are a significant Factor? Kidcash912 (talk) 05:36, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

Increasing your magic level temporarily does have an effect on the accuracy of the NPC attacking you with magic. If you are using the recommended setup on the sings of teh father boss battle and you have a decently high magic level, its about ~1% accuracy difference. However if you are using more budget gear, and have a magic level that is low, then it might be worth more. I would suggest following the calculations here: Damage per second/Magic where Vanstrom Klause#Sins of the Father is the attack roll, and you are the defence roll. If you were to use an imbued heart at high magic level, it would obviously be more worth it to use, but if the difference in accuracy isn't much, it may not be worth the inventory space to only use a magic potion.
