SCH and the ARTSFollow

OK i was wondering if any of you know what the following spells reside under:

Dia
Paralyze
Slow

Now I know this sounds kinda silly but for some reason whenever I use Light Arts I am able to land those 3 spells (-dia cuz it alaways lands) but whenever I switch over to Dark Arts and I try them, they always resist. Now I know they are under enfeebling magic but is it possible that SE split enfeebling magic up? I mean those spells are White Magic and you can tell by the little icon beside them, but does that mean they wouldn't be considered enfeebling for the arts? B/c I still get skill ups on enfeebling magic whenever I use them. If anyone could explain this to me that would great thanks guys!

How many tests did you do? 2? 4? 120? in my experience Paralyze and Slow landed way more frecuently on Dark Arts (as it should be, sometimes I had to cast them on Light because Dark was down) but I still got resists, I leveled SCH to 37, so I didn't get to the staves levels (waiting to see a SCH overhaul and AF), you start flooring resistances after you get the staves, before that you see resistances right and left, even with merits.

If you get Enfeebling magic skill ups, they are enfeebling magic.

I casted Paralyze/Slow with Dark Arts up and didn't start getting real resists until Imps. That was when I stopped bothering with them. They're enfeebling magic and Dark Arts enhances enfeebling.

I've tried a lot of times, and I know they are enfeebling magic, but I was asking if maybe SE splits them up, we still get a penalty for using paralyze,slow under dark arts showing that SE really didn't think this through I know its only a few mp but at first it confused the **** out of me. I seem to even get resists when using dark arts as well, but up untill I hit lvl 44 I was never hardly ever getting resists under light arts for those spells. Maybe its b/c up until now my enfeebling magic was caped so that might be my problem, i've tried switching to dark arts now, and I am starting to notice a slight difference in resists, as in I don't seem to get as many with dark arts up. thanks for your help guys.
