Spell Power

From DDO wiki

Spell power displayed on the character screen - hover over the icon

Spell power rating determines how much damage you deal with spells. In most cases, each point of spell power increase increases the base damage of your spell by 1%. Various effects can contribute to your spell power, all effects are added together.

Spell power was introduced in Update 14 and replaced previous spell damage amplification that involved addition and multiplication.

This concept applies only to spells that cause hit point damage and spells that heal hit points.
