PL absorbing stats (in General)

miteke [Superheros] April 15 2010 3:13 PM EDT

I'm a bit confused about how the PL stops stat draining attacks. When does it kick in? From the wiki it seems that I need only have a positive stat to take the drain, but the minion is not absorbing. Is there a minimum stat based on the damage of the weapon or something?

You have to absorb a majority of the damage from the hit and have more than 1 of the stat being drained. If you absorb less than half the damage then it will not drain at all.

That's new info!

Actually that info has been there for years. It is nothing new.

Yeah, it's in the wiki too :)

Meh! New to me at least. ;)

So, if you wanted to absorb a stat drain that did 100 damage you would need a positive stat, a PL effect of 50, and 50 hit points?

51 and 51 I believe.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 15 2010 4:47 PM EDT

Actually scratch that. You would need a PL effect of 51 and hp of 46
