Just noticed on my 'Magika boosting' skills, that the damage tool tips don't update on other skills when they are slotted / triggered. As an example Bound Aegis adds a 8%, which shows in Magika pool but the damage of other skills doesnt change.

Is that normal? Or does the magika increase to damage process at a later stage? (on use?)

    Check the damage of an ability (crystal frags for example) before you activate the bound aegis, and then active it and see if the damage of the ability has increased.

    That's what I mean, the amounts aren't changing. So say a skill is 10,000 damage, it's 10k if I slot Aegis, unslot it, toggle it - no change to damage. Same with Inner Light.

    If I switch weopons say Dual Wield then the damage goes up. But slotting / unsporting or toggling Mag Boosting skills does nadda.

    Anyone else on Xbox Eu seen that?

    It seems to work fine for me on PC...perhaps its a specific XBox issue?

    There's a common saying: Don't Trust Tooltips! I can't remember a time when there hasn't been one bug or another with tooltips. They fix one issue but another one pops up. On PC it is relatively easy to test actual skill damage through add-ons. Perhaps with the addition of combat text you can do a similar test.

    Hmm, I'm on Xbox I'll have a check later see if it does the same thing for me.

    Inner light you only have to have it on your bar for the bonus though, it doesn't have to be activated.

    Thanks @psychotic13 yep agree on IL but still nadda on spell damage. May Pool boost yes but no knock on effect to the tool tip output.

    And agreed @Reorx_Holybeard for someone that's trying to learn his build rather than just copy one off the net it's SO frustrating, I want to compare easily between this and that. But yep I need to find somewhere quiet I can DPS test I guess.

    You keep saying spell damage, and I'm not sure if you mean the Abilitys specific damage, or the actual spell damage on your character sheet?
