    It would still be demon piss, it just wouldn't give him a debuff, curse or injury.

    I have wondered this for a bit, but what do you all think if Richter cast his black hole spell when that imp was next to him. Could the imp just pop out of the blackhole after being sucked in and back at Richter?

    1000-2500 damage, that's more than enough that most beings will be screaming in agony, unable to cast a spell. Even if the imp has say 50% resistance (assuming resistance works against this particular spell) I don't think he'll be able to teleport out easily. Even at the lower range, a 1000 damage should be sufficient to seriously harm the imp.

    That resurrection spell though, that's some impressive magic. The HT has something better, but its still a great spell.

    I don’t think so. I don’t believe it only steeping in its blood but absorbing all of its energies leveling it up massively.

    Maybe the hilt will be back at its original values before Krom fixed and added it to the darkstone blade. Or halfway there. Anything will do really, it's new stats suck comparitively

    If it’s still stuck in there and not broken from the fall and the debris.

    Hmm. He might have been able to make water out of it. But were his debuffs too strong to cast? And would the pee have melted the glass before he finished?

    And could he countenance drinking pee, even if it was converted? He’s no bearish grills.

    Well he did lots of magic with those debuffs, even enchanting a golem. Then he ate the uncooked and charred innards of the giant scorpion. So ya I think he could do it. Plus glass is one of the amazing inert materials that can hold acids.

    He could have used it against the worms. If he could he kept it it could have been used in a potion. It might have even given some sort of edge if used against the Imp. As vile as the gesture was it should have been seen as a gift when not having anything else. I would Have been nice if he had the chance to look at it with the monocle. At the least he would have had a glass.

    Would be interesting to see how the Energy and Mana of a powerful Hellish creature would effect Black Ice, a Magic Sword created from Demonic Materials. The two things while being both Evil and powerful are from two different Plana Realms and don't usually get on with each other, in fact they usually hate each other. Combining those Energy's should have some interesting effects?

    I suppose he could have refilled it with his blood or piss. He did take a piss after he threw the glass. He also has a purify water spell that would have worked on his pee pee.

    Really good points. I think we forget that the planes have huge differences between them (like Richter did in book 7, haha). The effects could be anything, even hurting the blade.

    He unlocked Earth boundary but after that he switched to unlocking the 3rd level of sonic damage.

    They also finally implied that item enchantments need items containing mana levels to function.

    Before I couldn't figure out why he was using a health ring schematic rather than just enchanting a health ring for more health with the converted spell.

    Can't remember where I should put this... So

    Did the Myst Village with the skeleton army arise during the vile Era with all the undead and death magic?

    That’s a Good question. All I recall is that the click clack of bones is why people fear the Mist.

    Speaking of this, it makes me think about the death magic all over again along with the dungeon. Doesn’t the dungeon absorb ambient mana from Ricthers domain? It does seem like there has been plenty around. From the the skeleton mage to the dark aberration and its dark chamber to the Sepulcher itself. It seems the dungeon would have been consuming death magic from the very beginning in small quantities. Everything does add up in the long run.

    No, I don't think so. The Vile bloodlines period wasn't an Era like the epoch of banished gods, it was due to the cataclysm events. The iteration of the mist village with the undead army was was likely during this same current cataclysmic period that richter finds himself in since the kinder are contiguous (though fractured) from the old king to the current hamlet.

    Brings up a good question though "do places of power / ley line nexuses (nexii?) survive the cataclysms"?
