Armor of Faith

... is cumulative with other sources of damage resistance (it uses type=0, cumulative, instead of type=1 set flat value), despite what the (GTU, uh-oh) description says. It's not cumulative with multiple castings of itself, thankfully.

 

Seems to be a GTU issue. The pre-GTU description says nothing about non-cumulativity with other sources of damage resistance, or indeed with itself.

 

pre-gtu:

The caster of the Armor of Faith receives significant protection against melee and magical attacks. This magical armor is a force of energy that absorbs a portion of the damage intended for the caster. At first level, the protection is 5%, and every five levels of the caster improves this by another 5%. A 20th level priest would have 25% of her damage 'absorbed' if protected by this spell.

 

post-gtu:

Armor of Faith confers upon the caster significant protection against melee and magical attacks. This magical armor is a force of energy that absorbs a portion of the damage intended for the caster. At first level, the armor absorbs 5% of all damage, with an additional 5% absorbed for every five levels of the caster, to a maximum of 25% for a 20th level priest. Armor or Faith is not cumulative with any other protections, physical or magical, including itself.

 

I'll just drop that GTU string locally, I think. @1025603

FINE DO THAT! SHOW YOUR APPRECIATION!

 

Armor of Faith not being self cumulative actually did get the developer rubberstamp back in the day - but the not stacking with anything else is corroborated by nothing (and the Baldurdash version still uses increment rather than set, so I dunno what Dorner was thinking).

 

We kill this string update now.
