Greetings fellow istarians.

There's something that's been bugging me for a while: do ethereal spells have a naturally higher chance to hit than non-ethereal ones, or do mobs have separate evasion stats for each? Because my spirit bolts, leeches and blood bolts hit like 90%-98% of the time, depending on the mob, while my thefts of life have at most 60% accuracy.

The values vary according to level and mob type. For example, a dire wolf dodges about 6% of my ethereal spells and 40% of the other types. If I change my target to say, a myloc gatherer, my bolts and leeches rarely miss (~98% hit chance), but my other spells are unreliable (~20% hit chance).

My current spirit skill is 1413.
