Question about CoBF (in General)
March 2 2005 11:41 AM EST
Ok, I have a scenario where I have a mage that casts Fireball and is also wearing a CoBF. If I attack a character that casts AMF, if my fireball is reflected by their AMF, should my CoBF not protect me? If it protects against a direct fireball attack, it stands to reason that an indirect one would also be repelled. Does that make sense or is my logic off?
The cloak shields you from Fire from the outside, not the kind that emits from the inside. (or something).

But AMF fireball deflection is coming from the outside so to speak, is it not?
I figure that the field of Antimagic can slip into your cloak.

AMF blocks your fireballs at source - like when a gun backfires - so the fireball is inside your cloak.
Anti-Magic field is an offensive enchantment so did you not think that the field would be cast around your minion and not theirs?
If it was defensive then I would agree but the field is around you so it is bouncing off before reaching that of the CoBF.
Oh and always happy to help.

Bottom line on AMF is that backfires disregard all armor being worn by the affected mage. You could have 400 AC, a CBF, and Protection of 50 and still get the full backfire. That is how it has always been.
Endurance has no effect on AMF damage either, just the way it is, i guess.

Doesn't that make AMF completely dominate any DD spells? Seems a little disproportioned to me.
no because it constantly needs to be pumped to be effective against higher DD spells.
The higher the opponents DD spell the higher you need your amf.
