Does the 3rd eye work on Bound Spells now? You have to roll to cast now so I dont see why you couldn't and wizard do take bound spell items, Ring of Corin/Fury come to mind. It is a spell, it has a casting value, you roll to cast it. It has all the requirements, I see no reason why it is omitted from the 3rd eye.

1) 3rd eye makes the sorcerer able to cast spells known by the ennemy mage if LOS. Bound spells are not technically known by the mage. The spell is bounded to the item, the mage doesn't know it at all, and that's the reason you can't add the lv bonus to a bounded spell used by a mage. The fact the bearer is mage or not is irrelevant.

2) Fluffly, how can you read an 'item's mind' to steal its knowledge?

3) Tactic: the 3rd eyed sorcerer would only be able to cast the bound spell. That's not very good even with ring of corin/fury.

Don't think Magic Item bound spells. Think Warrior Priest,Tomb King Bound spells.

Only if the caster of said 'bound spells' are considered 'wizards' could you do it.

Also, in the case of TK, you'd get a spell with no casting value. You wouldn't get their ability to cast on any value you roll. I think the rules for Incantations have a clause in there dealing with this already.

Even if you do cast Tomb Kings incantations, all bar the magic missile one start with the words "Target one undead unit...".

So have fun with that in a WoC army.
