Version 0.30: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.
It may return the magic spent to cast spells, but lowers their success rate. It always returns the magic spent on miscasts.

The Energy ego allows the wielder to passively channel MP when casting spells. It can only be found on orbs.

When successfully casting a spell, this ego gives a 20% chance to have your full MP refunded. When you miscast a spell, you will always have MP refunded. However, it increases your raw spell failure chance by +10%. (For reference, the first stack of wizardry reduces raw spell failure by x75%.)

Note that this does not mean that your spell failure actually increases by +10%, as its modified by a function. See the Spell Success page for details. Generally, your actual chance for failure will increase by a number less than 10%.

  • Prior to 0.30, channeling was different, You had a 2 * Evocations / 108 chance to regain MP on any cast. Each time this happens, the channel could "backfire" - you have a 1 / (Evocations - MP cost) chance of either being confused for 1 + 1d4 turns or losing 1-5 intelligence. It did not increase failure rate.
  • This ego was introduced, along with orbs, in 0.28.
