Priests don't have especially good INT, but that makes almost no difference (surprisingly) -- an INT of 10 gets you +1 skill, and an INT of 18/220 gets you +13. Remember that each 1 point in the skill above the level of the device you're trying to use is +1% damage.
This is something that I'm going to look at more in the future. Specifically, I'm thinking about extending that scale in the negative direction. So INTs below 12 give you a penalty to damage and larger fail rates.
