Default Limitation for Incantation Magic: Direct damage only

I'm thinking of a magic that can only do direct damage; this would yield a less flashy, creepier magic that cannot produce fireballs but can turn your bone marrow into molten lead... what would this limitation be worth? -5%? -10%?

Nor is it enough that he should hear the opinions of adversaries from his own teachers, presented as they state them, and accompanied by what they offer as refutations. He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them...he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.”

-10% sounds about right. If it's a campaign wide thing though then it's worth 0 points.
