So it can be countered by AMF? Why?

why would it be countered by amf.....?

AMF reduces magic damage as well as dealing damage back to the caster.

You mean only + on AC stops it?

Is that not already the case?

I'm not sure...

GA: Guardian Angel. Look at this way: when somebody attacks you, your Angel picks up their attack and throws it back at them. So if they shoot you with an arrow they get their arrow back. If they hit you with a fireball they get it back.

The GA itself may be magic, but there's no reason to make the damage magic.

That's been heavily disputed, but I can't think of a thread with a complete attempt to confirm it is in fact a separate kind of damage altogether.

It seems to be reduced by physical AC to me.

Your heavy tank only feared toilet breaks. When the choice was tin opener or rust....
