Rules Discussion / Re: Damage to Swarm Creature between attacks
« on: June 08, 2019, 06:02:47 PM »
Because the additional strikes occur before damage barrier and counter strike step, a full health Killer Bee Swarm can do a total of 4 attacks with 1 dice each against the same target.
What if the target had Redirect or Eye for an Eye on them?

Rules Discussion / Re: Elementalist Glyph Clarification

Boosting Attacks
Fire and Air Glyph both boost attacks, but to what extend? Since it is not Ranged+X, can I use Fire Glyph on zone attacks like Voltaic Discharge to roll 2 extra dice against all creatures in zone? Or will it only work against one? Or not at all?

What of sweeping and double strike attacks?
In Arena those will boost only single attack of an attack action. Academy doesn't make distinction between attack and attack action, but definition of Doublestrike and Sweeping mention second attack. So it's separate attack and doesn't benefit from glyphs used on the first attack IMO.
Zone attacks aren't precise in their definition. Rules doesn't explicitly say if it's single attack with multiple rolls or multiple separate attacks.
These spells will attack every creature in the play area (and every conjuration in future expansions),  including  yours!  Roll  for  each  object separately, one at a time, in any order you wish.

Actually it's not the angel that's healing but the mage so You can use the ring.

Can Dragon's Breath make 90 degree turn? I thought that one zone away would follow same rules as push's 'away'.

And it can push entire swarm of creatures.

Are those all spoilers? i miss a familiar for druid and elementalist.

The Druid has Vine Trees, Seedling Pods, Samara Trees...

She does not need a familiar.

The Elementalist, well, let us see how it goes. It might not work well with one.
Druid also has Fellela.

Rules Discussion / Re: Divine Intervention and Gear Up
« on: August 10, 2018, 12:18:51 PM »
In case of normal spell You wouldn't be able to reveal DI during resolve spell step, so You would have to reveal it before the step to break spell. Gear Up grants its target 3 free actions. Those actions follow normal steps for casting spell. You can reveal DI to cancel one of those actions after opponent pays for piece of equipment, but it won't affect other actions because You can't alter past effects. Actions were granted when Gear Up resolved and trying to counter resolved spell is like rerolling dice with Akiro's Favor once damage is applied.

You may reveal DI before Gear Up's resolve step and simply break it. If You don't do that then the opponent has up to 3 free actions. Each of those actions follow normal steps for casting spell. You can reveal DI after opponent pays for Mage Wand and break that single action, but it won't have any effect on other two because opponent didn't even start them. Then opponent can cast another Mage Wand if he had 2 copies of it.

Another thing. If mana would be overrated then people would play Razortusk as it's cheaper than the wolf.

Rules Discussion / Re: What is "Innate Life"?
« on: August 08, 2018, 03:19:12 PM »
If You destroy the Life Tree then everyone loses life gained from its ability. It's just that the tree grants life gain even when there's Deathlock in arena.

i think I prefer the ants. Breaking multiple guards and probing for blocks (and the like) on multiple targets seems incredibly strong.

It would break Domination matches completely, I suspect.

"Yeah, you know that zone of yours with two guards and two On orbs controlled by you? Not any more they're not. I'll just break your Guards and turn those orbs off with this little ant thing, and then come in with my two goblin legionnaires to turn them on for me. Sorry!"
Assuming your enemy doesn't roll poorly the ants won't be able to disable both orbs. The Ants have 4 life. Both guards will damage them and at 2 hp left the ants can make only 3 attacks.

Can swarms gain life from Etherian Lifetree?
Killer bees seem really good with it - flying, elusive, 6 dice critical damage for 7 mana and 2 sbp.

My current understanding of the rules says yes, Life Tree will buff all swarms.  However, let's just make sure to mention that each time we talk about swarms we are not talking about a collection of X dice to roll all at once. We are talking about rolling 1 die X times. One singular Vet Belt and a Rhino Hide completely nullifies all swarm damage.
Vet belt is good against bees for sure. On the other hand they break Block and Glancing Blow.
How do swarms interact with Reverse Attack and Divine Reversal?
