Fear and Defense
« on: November 17, 2012, 06:30:14 AM »
I recently used Helm of Fear in my Warlock deck and I noticed, it essentially acts like a defense, yet it is not a defense ability. If the warlock is wearing deflection bracers, would he get to role for fear effect first, and then still get the defense roll? It seems like this is how it would work. Unlike defense, fear still allows an attacker to attack something else in the square so it is not too bad for the attacker.

Yes!  That is exactly right - he gets his Fear first, and if that does not stop the creature, then he can still use his defense.

How about if my Cervere, The forest Shadow is enchanted with Cobra reflexes and Force Sword, will I be able to make a Defense roll 3x per round on a melee attack?

No, Defenses are different from, and separate from, Fear.  They do not stack. You may only use one Defense per attack.  Having multiple Defenses is only useful if you are attacked multiple times.

Or, hypothetically at this point, if you have multiple Defences that are no-ranged and no-melee.
