Warforged Juggernaut‘s Stage 20 Day by day Energy is Crag of Metal; a stance that provides you a bunch of stuff, however the a part of the ability I am fascinated with right here is:
“Till the stance ends, you achieve resist 5 to all harm, and every time this reduces an assault’s harm to 0, you additionally negate that assault’s impact on you.”
The way in which I am studying this, to ensure that this to kick in: an assault should do harm, which should be lower than 5, AND additionally deal an impact.
An assault that simply offers an impact is not ignored as a result of the stance would not “cut back the assault’s harm to 0″ – it already was 0 (or somewhat, there was no harm/null/and so forth.)
I am unable to envision every other approach of triggering the textual content in query;
- Resistance would not stack.
- If a distinct resistance is greater and
negates the assault it would not rely as a result of it is “every time THIS
[Resist 5] reduces an assault”.
- Short-term hit factors are simply me
taking the harm some other place…
At finest, I can see it synergising with a handful of particular powers that in any other case cut back assault harm by mechanics apart from resist, however these are few and much between (and customarily cut back the harm by a not important sufficient quantity to negate 90% of an affordable opponent’s harm.)(And my get together hasn’t picked any of the dozen particular paragon paths/backgrounds that get them.)
General, this implies, I am unable to actually see an event the place this textual content would really kick in. It is good for negating degree 1 creature’s assault results in the event that they occur to roll a 1 on their harm cube… as a degree 20 Day by day.
(Do not get me incorrect, the remainder of the ability is okay. Resist 5 is okay. Free harm is sweet. Resist compelled motion is sweet. It is simply an unlikely sufficient confluence of occasions for that energy to set off that.. it looks like I am lacking one thing?)
TL;DR: Am I mis-reading this a part of the Crag of Metal energy or is it simply not going to return up in regular level-appropriate fights?
