I would argue it should work for physical attacks (melee and shooters), but not magic. And that in the "real world(tm)" it would have been applied to the weapon, rather than the player. But, mechanically that's a real pain in the neck, so it's a player buff.

Spell casters can use either an in-built spell (I don't know if some casters have a confuse spell or not), or a wand or rod. The scroll is for thick headed melee combatants who don't have a solid kinship with magic or their machines.
