Deadly does not slow spellcasting with damage.
I heard somewhere that damage by poisons is increased by spelldamage. If this is right, it might be fun to get gear with lots of spelldamage - generally mage gear, spelldamage trinkets and stuff. You wouldn't do much damage with direct hits, but just imagine the deadly poison ticks! Oglokoog (talk) 20:21, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
