The information on the max possible damage from cone of cold as delivered by a Knight with the Mirror of Merlin conflicts with the information on the page for the Mirror of Merlin itself. According to the page for the Mirror of Merlin, the double damage only applies to cone of cold if the spellcasting skill is less than skilled, and only at skilled is cone of cold an area burst rather than a ray, so the double damage doesn't apply in the scenario described in the article.

Basic better than Skilled Edit
It's really weird that a skilled magician is no longer capable of firing a ray (even blindly!!) but has to cast it on a field that's visible to him but at least 3 squares away from himself AND his pet (unless cold-resistant and without potions in invitory). A ray attack is usually superior, except in throne rooms.
