Title pretty much says it all. When crafting Magical Arms and Armor, if you are using a scroll, it is capped at level 10, no matter if the scroll is level 15 and being used by a level 17 caster.

Is this a bug, or WAD? Is there a fix of some kind?

Thanks

Straight off the wiki:

"If the creator must have the use magic device skill in order to use the item, the caster level is capped at level 10."

Oh, wait... My Bard is level 16, he is trying to craft a weapon of greater vampiric regeneration (level 15), if he's using a spell made by a mage level 15+, it should work?

EDIT: and that's the problem, it doesn't work

My level 16 bard is casting the spell using a level 16 sorceress' freshly crafted scroll, and I get insufficient level... :(

Wait... So "use magic device" is a scroll? Not sure here... I thought it was something else, like a wand...

UMD check will always occur for any item that is class-specific where your toon's class is not on the list. In other words, a scroll of, say, Amplify would not use UMD because bard would be a specified class but a scroll of, say, Shadow Shield would need UMD for bard to use it.

Scrolls are items. "Items" is a HUGE category.

You can figure on any spells higher than Level 6 to "probably" run a UMD check unless the designer made high-level arcane scrolls with the bard class on the list of qualified casters.

In any case, it appears the crafting results agree with the rules of the game. It's not a bug.
