At Geomancy 177 and Handbell 185 I get 3MP/tic. I only got 2MP/tic at around Geomancy 175 and Handbell 180.

Having the Matre Bell equipped when casting the spell does increase the potency.
* Did you have the Matre Bell equipped when you said "At Geomancy 177 and Handbell 185 I get 3MP/tick"? If so, then the potency seems to fall under your skill level for Handbell, which, as you stated, was 185 in accordance to the table that is correct.
* "I only got 2MP/tick at around Geomancy 175 and Handbell 180." By "at around", how certain are you at that and did you have the Matre Bell equipped when the spell was cast? You can unequip the Matre Bell *after* you cast the spell and still receive the effects. However, when you cast the spell, the extra bonus is only granted if it is equipped. --Setherio (talk) 22:11, April 7, 2013 (UTC)
