- The Sorcerer's Catalyst MagAdjust makes it a solid choice for builds with 32-40 INT, a popular benchmark for late-game sorcery minimum requirements as well as PvP builds, which is quite surprising considering it's a starting item for all sorcerers. For mid-level INT up to 28, however, its usefulness is surpassed early on by the Oolacile Ivory Catalyst.
