Question Boon of the Clear Mind

I can cast the single target version of Clarity on players in my group. Great!

However, I cannot cast the group version of Clarity (Boon of the Clear Mind) on my group because I get the error: "Your spell is too powerful for your intended target."

Why am I not allowed to cast Boon of the Clear Mind on my group? It only casts on myself (the enchanter).

I cannot find anywhere in the database to fix this. I even compared Clarity to Boon of the Clear Mind, but they have identical settings other than 1 spell being a group buff and the other being a single target.

In rules_values table:
Code:
Spells:BuffLevelRestrictions  True
Set to false.

Thank you. So this is server wide? I cannot control it on a spell by spell basis?

Correct. The level restrictions are in the source and based on what live uses.

Lines 573-581 in spells.cpp
Code:
if (RuleB(Spells, BuffLevelRestrictions)) {
		// casting_spell_targetid is guaranteed to be what we went, check for ST_Self for now should work though
		if (spell_target && spells[spell_id].targettype != ST_Self && !spell_target->CheckSpellLevelRestriction(spell_id)) {
			LogSpells("Spell [{}] failed: recipient did not meet the level restrictions", spell_id);
			if (!IsBardSong(spell_id))
				MessageString(Chat::SpellFailure, SPELL_TOO_POWERFUL);
			return false;
		}
	}
And lines 3110-3139 in spells.cpp
Code:
// Check Spell Level Restrictions
// returns true if they meet the restrictions, false otherwise
// derived from http://samanna.net/eq.general/buffs.shtml
// spells 1-50: no restrictons
// 51-65: SpellLevel/2+15
// 66+ Group Spells 62, Single Target 61
bool Mob::CheckSpellLevelRestriction(uint16 spell_id)
{
	return true;
}

bool Client::CheckSpellLevelRestriction(uint16 spell_id)
{
	int SpellLevel = GetMinLevel(spell_id);

	// Only check for beneficial buffs
	if (IsBuffSpell(spell_id) && IsBeneficialSpell(spell_id)) {
		if (SpellLevel > 65) {
			if (IsGroupSpell(spell_id) && GetLevel() < 62)
				return false;
			else if (GetLevel() < 61)
				return false;
		} else if (SpellLevel > 50) { // 51-65
			if (GetLevel() < (SpellLevel / 2 + 15))
				return false;
		}
	}

	return true;
}}

Wow thank you for the detailed information.

I am so intimidated by code and I really want to be able to mess with things like that, but I am not confident in my ability to even get a custom server up and running from scratch, which is why I used the Akka repak.

I appreciate the info!
