Initial look, Magic affinity, which is described as "determines the power of your offensive spells" does not seem to have an appreciable effect, even given the small sample size.

Also noticed, Intelligence does not, or very minutely affects spell dmg.

(edit) Returned with template A, but activated inscription to 100, no appreciable deviation from the original set of dmg. Built upon this by reducing evocation to 50 skill, also no appreciable deviation from original set of dmg. partial tests used magic missiles only.

Bug report: suspect damage modifiers for spells is not correctly integrated. Unsure of proper values - was not able to experience this level of skill on live.
