Elemental Shape dm. red. not working
« on: September 02, 2010, 07:58:01 am »
Elemental Shape damage reduction not working as stated in Lore



Character:  Zigruum Frostbeard

Bioware name:  Bill1199



Date of Occurence:  9/2/2010

Place of Occurence:  Cave of the Eye first level-West Server



Description:



Zigruum dispelled his wards and entered elemental shape-fire.  He attacked the dire spiders in the first level of the cave of the eye.  Zigruum was hit by a dire spider while in form and the damage reduction took off/absorbed 10pts of damage.  Zigruum took damage over and above the 10pts that were taken off (see attached logs).  Lore and NWN wiki both list the damage reduction of all forms as 15/+3.



Reproducable:  I'm sure

Damage reduction explained in Lore:



LORE reference-linkElemental Shape



Not sure if you would rather update Lore to reflect this or put the changes in for the next update so its working as indicated in Lore currently...I sure would like that 15/+3 though



Thanks,

I know this is an age since it's been addressed but the DR is 15/3 when it's the Elder shape (level 20+) and 10/2 when it's the Huge shape (level 16+)

Thanks for reponding to this....,As you said, it is working as intended!  Apologies for not updating this after I figured out it was working properly.
