Dispel Magic

Post by Captain_K »

So why is Dispel Magic a Cleric Spell or a Mage Spell ONLY a caster's INT check.... making the mage more than likely 30% better at this than the Cleric, even against divine magic...

Thoughts? House rules?

I kind of like a WIS check against divine magic and an INT check against arcane magic... evens it out for everyone...

I like that idea. Might have to try it out in this weekend's game.

I believe Steve has said before that wizards use Int for the check and clerics use Wis for their checks. Besides, that's how I've always done it.

I've been doing it that way too, without realizing it.
