Re: ward against melee[edit source]

Does shock count as a melee attack? My general knowledge of the game would lead me to think not, however this should be tested. --Sami 03:35, 14 August 2006 (CDT)

Sorry, just read that line totally wrong...it implied to me that it worked against shock, not that the ele was using it. Could just be my brain reading too fast :p --Sami 03:40, 14 August 2006 (CDT)

Ward Against Harm[edit source]

It is better than Ward Against Elements if you are investing points in Water Magic. IT gives a universal 20ish armor. The bad part...it is elite . --Life Infusion 14:22, 14 August 2006 (CDT)

harm protects agaist all damage types, including Physical and "other" types. --Honorable Sarah Honorable Icon.gif 14:33, 14 August 2006 (CDT)
I distaste harm, in order to make it compare with this (In terms of elemental protection) you'll need 15 points into water magic. This is a set value, variable only depending on time. If a warden were to be bringing soley wards, I'd prefer my elite to be something of the energy management sort, and my skill points being thrown into the category with 4 wards and energy storage. I'd want my warden to provide immunity to knockdown, chance of dodging, prevent roughly a quarter of elemental damage, and maybe even slow enemies down nearby. But that's just me.

Earth attunement works just fine for e-management, along with glyph of lesser energy - and Ward against Harm can be used with ward against elements, giving a large armor boost against elemental damage, and a huge armor boost vs fire damage, along with +20 armor vs other damage :) 82.17.103.240 18:20, 15 March 2007 (CDT)

24 armor[edit source]

There are a lot of skills that give +24 armor. Is this reducing damage to 75%? Prob. should go under armor talk, but... (proving its me)~~ User:Frvwfr2 frvwfr2 (talk)(contributions) Bump...

I've always wondered about that, I believe it's because +24 armor rounds off perectly as 37.5% damage reduction. All other values near 20 have long decimal places. Other than that I don't see any real reason to use 24 armor. Zulu Inuoe 19:27, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
