Shield of Capacity not working properly? (in General)

AdminShade December 18 2009 1:10 PM EST

First some facts:

I am using a Shield of Capacity.
I am using Unarmed Combat. (even if it's base, does not matter)
I am fighting in Melee at the time of this incident.

My second minion (called Mucho Tiempo) on my tournament character is still alive in the first few Melee rounds.
I am attacking Kliktu, whom is using a Sling of Death. He is targeting my minion though:

Kliktu Himself's explosive shot hit Mucho Tiempo [44838], Ofelia [15195]

My response to that however is this:

Mucho Tiempo stumbled swinging at Kliktu Himself
Ofelia bruised Kliktu Himself [60587]
Ofelia tapped Kliktu Himself [47941]

Ofelia is getting hit with splash damage which is NOT physical damage.

It is, I believe, magic type damage equivalent to FB damage.

That is why your SoC does not help.

Ofelia is not using the Shield of Capacity, Mucho Tiempo is however.

Well one has to hit to activate the stored energy of the SoC :)

Does one? I have been using this for a while now and with a 'normal' melee weapon, this works...

You still have to hit your target to get the stored energy of the SoC activated.

yup you need a MoD or a Morg with alot of + and no X like mine

UC also works with the SoC.

In other words, because I miss, the effect does not trigger?

Learned something new! :)

Always been that way:

Always been that way

Actually, your link serves as proof that it hasn't. In fact, as recently as Jan 17, 2008 (and all dates prior), it wasn't :P

AdminShade December 18 2009 2:23 PM EST

Unfortunately, before that time the Shield of Capacity did not exist...

In fact, as recently as Jan 17, 2008

You mean June?
