[Windows] Bug in the spells: Lower Resistance, Pierce Magic and Pierce Shield

Observed:
Lower resistance, pierce magic and pierce shield casted by a level 31 sorcerer lower target's magic resistance in 30%, 20% and 30% respectively.

Expected:
Lower resistance and pierce shield should lower target's magic resistance as 10%+1% per level, while pierce magic should lower target's magic resistance as 1% per level as claimed in the descriptions of the spells. So lower resistance, pierce magic and pierce shield casted by a level 31 sorcerer should lower target's magic resistance in 41%, 31% and 41% respectively.

    Lots of per-level spell effects cap out at level 20, which is presumably what's happening here.

    However, yes, if a spell effect is going to cap out at level 20, then it should say so in the spell description, else the description is lying to you (and that's a bug).

    it would be awesome to lower 41% in one strike though

    All spells cap out at level 20, so there is no need to say so in the spell description.

    You can stack 3x Lower Resistance or 3x Pierce Magic into a Spell Trigger if you want to, which will lower MR by 90% or 60%, respectively.

    Not true. Some go on improving - for example Dispel Magic.
