Crown of Protection ability question
« on: September 21, 2013, 11:12:12 AM »
Does the quick spell ability from Crown of Protection count as a Holy spell for purposes of the discount ability from Ring of Asyra? Thematically this seems to work, but I wanted to clarify the intent.

Thanks.

Sadly no. It is not an incantation or enchantment nor would it trigger Divine Reward for the priestess. It is an equipment activated ability like Dispel Wand or Staff of Beasts.
It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye. And then it's just fun.

Well I noticed that in the later expansions they have been adding keywords to spells contained in Mage abilities. See Forcemaster and Warlord for example, so that these can interact with other equipment or effects. I also noticed that they added Mana to the subtype on the Moonglow Amulet. This made me wonder if Holy had just been left off of the quick spell description for this Priestess only equipment.

Thanks.
