It increases the power of its wearer's magical spells.

The Archmagi ego acts as a spell enhancer for all forms of magic, increasing your spell power by up to 50%. It does not make spells any easier to cast.

This ego is useful to help maximize spellpower. It serves no purpose on spells which have reached the power cap. Also note that spellpower is gained with diminishing returns. If you're already at high spellpower, you'll receive a smaller percent boost from Archmagi.

Useful for Hexes, due to how willpower checks work. Also good for damaging spells, since it lets you kill enemies faster, making you safer and saving MP.
