True devotion to the forces of energy and entropy empowers a master sorcerer with the ability to deliver devastating magical afflictions. All elemental status effects inflicted on a victim will be greatly increased in magnitude.
Increases applied status effects to enemies based on the equation: ((Ability+1) + Mysticism) * 50/100
Therefore 99% empowerment adds up to 50% increased status effects, and Mysticism can add up to 50% more for a total of +100% (doubled) status effects. Of course, realistically Mysticism tops out at 65 or 70, so you're looking at 80-85% increased status effects applied by elemental damage. That's extremely substantial.
For example, a 20 damage blast of fire could apply 35 points worth of burn.
