Question about GA (in New players)

May i know wat is the most effective way to reduce dmg of GA beside ToE?

Well, normal damage reduction methods. GA will reflect the same type of damage that is dealt to it. So if a magical attack hits the minion with GA, then it will reflect magical damage which isn't reduced as much by AC.

Protection helps as well, no? I use a combination of ToE, decent AC, and Protection (no magic from me).
But this got me thinking, I don't use a VB, but does the AC slicing damage from the VB come back as AC slicing damage thru the GA?

Protection would help, that comes under normal damage reduction methods. I believe that seeing as VB is physical damage, it is that, it doesn't go onto effects otherwise we'd have some trippy things going on with leech.

I think DM would reduce damage from GA as well. DM lowers the level of their GA and hence you take less damage.

ahhhhh very interesting point! ^

AC, ToE, DM, Protection are the four standard methods.

However, I see by looking at your characters that you usually need to survive until combat rounds...

So VA for your UC thank could help against GA.

For your CoC char, just make sure your CoC is as big as it can get. If the damage done by CoC is much bigger than the GA level, it will reduce the backlash greatly.
