Spell Lore

Type: Suffix
Base price modifier: varies, comes in different levels, I..XI
Effect: Spell Lore items offer an equipment bonus to your chance to score a spell critical, i.e., deal double damage.

Spell lore enchantments can be commonly found as a suffix on randomly-generated Quarterstaffs (with the Thaumaturgy prefix) and Scepters. Spell Lore can be found on all types of randomly-generated weapons, but these are much rarer compared to quarterstaffs/scepters. Spell lore can also more rarely be found on randomly-generated armor and shields as a prefix.
