    WTF i just apply white scrool to my axe first then i try to enchant effiency 1 and its not worked. In wiki giving info like 'Talk to the Wizard to apply any Enchanted Books and White Scrolls to an item. Enchanted Books have a 50% success rate, while White Scrolls have a 100% success rate.'If it was mean to White scrool have %100 success rate it was should be like 'Enchanted Books have a 50% success rate,White Scrolls have a 100% success rate.' But its freakin using 'while' Word!!!!! and this mod+ can't answering my questions enough then he is closing post. Thanks!

    (Moved back to the Help section)

    The usage of the word "while" in this case could be substituted with "where as" or "on the other hand". This is not the definition of "while" that would mean "as long as". It's an issue of English assigning multiple different meanings to the same word, even if used in similar contexts.

    To clarify once more, having a white scroll applied to a piece of equipment does not affect the odds of an enchanted book being applied successfully.

    Do you have any other questions?

    "Enchanted Books have a 50% success rate, while White Scrolls have a 100% success rate."

    Where does it say using a white scroll makes enchanted books have 100% chance lol???

    I think he was interpreting it something along the lines of "Enchanted Books have a 50% success rate, but while you have a White Scroll applied, it makes enchanted books have a 100% success rate." or something like that

    The enchantment books have a 50% of applying.
    White Scrolls have 100% chance of Applying.
    The word 'while' wasn't used as "If you apply a white scroll it'll be 100%"
    No.. the word 'while' is another way of saying "Enchantment books have 50% chance AND the white scrolls have 100% chance"
