<DIV>Anyone have any idea?  I'm <EM>sure</EM> I used to get messages a couple levels ago on what were probably 31st level orcs in Zek "This monster is too powerful for that spell" or something like, but now I'm happily using Contagion for a lil bit of DoTing on stuff in Rivervale.</DIV>

I once got a message like "This spell wont work" or something. This was in RoV vs clay golems and I thought the spell was too weak. I figured out that the other mystic in the group already cast contagion and thats why I couldnt even cast it. If I was the first to cast it it worked just fine. The golems are 32^^.What were your level when you got the message? More than 5 levels lower then the mobs? Might have something to do with that perhaps, you cant group and get xp with someone thats alot higher and maybe your spells cant effect mobs alot higher as well. Just guessing now, never tested.

Thanks for the feedback, but I don't think that addresses my issue.  The "spell won't work" I've had when another mystic has spells in effect already - this wasn't that one.  The orcs I killed were yellow/orange to me at 29th and I was soloing when I got the message.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Weird! <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>

<DIV>I think you accidentally hit your low level Slow.  The message "Target too powerful" definitely comes up if you try to cast your low level Slow on a 30+ mob.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Im still able to Contagion yellow con Mobs at 30.</DIV>

<DIV>Also, it appears some monsters are completely immune to a type of damage.  You will get some message about that if you hit them with an attack they are immune to.  The spirits in the Oakmyst Forest that float next to the bears are immune to piercing or something, and when the scout in my party tried to stab them, we kept getting flooded with a message about it not working.</DIV>

<DIV>That may have been a mob immune to regular weapons.  Many magic mobs must be hit with a magic weapon.</DIV>
