Sabotage Wizards

Okay, wth does this do? I searched the forums and some people say it depletes the target's mana pool, but I always thought it just reduced the target's success rate when casting spells. Can anyone clarify how this operation operates?

I have similar questions about the bribe generals and thieves ops as well.

It takes down a % of their mana each time. Same with the thievery op. Generals now I'm not so sure, I think it increases their return time by 1 hour, but I'm not positive. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I believe it reduces the targets mana pool, therefore creating it easier to spell them and for them to spell you.

WPA is not the only factor in making/defending a sucessful spell, it all depends on the mana %.

Same goes for theif ops

The above descriptions of SW are correct. The success rate (both for and against a target) is affected by mana, and thus reducing the mana also affects success rate.

ET is the exact same, except it works on Stealth.

BG causes extra losses on offence - like Pitfalls, except PF is on offence and defence. No Generals are lost. The operation lasts for some time, and is not stackable.

BT reduces the enemies defensive TPA - giving you better success and less losses. It is like Riots and BG in that it lasts for some time, and is not stackable. It does -not- cause the target to lose thieves, no matter what the message in the news says.
