GA and the SoC (in General)

Here's a little tip. If you're a heavy damage dealing tank based team and you're up against a Shield Of Capacity put some GA into the mix. Doesn't even need to be the biggest in the game, around 30th highest will do it.

You'll hit them hard, the SoC will use your damage against you but then your GA will give that back to them, hitting them for over a million on those strikes.

Meanwhile the 2nd biggest GA in the game only hits back for about 300k thanks to the absence of physical damage.

Actually make that the biggest GA. The biggest in the listing is a tourney created spell.

Physical damage/SoC/GA is like a tennis game...back and forth, back and forth!

"The biggest GA" actually doesn't matter since returns are all a cap based on damage received, good find though!

To sum up, the counter to the SoC is either no physical damage, or GA.

Exbow, on the other hand, may reduce strength but doesn't stop the SoC strikes.

I do not know about how effect this tip of yours really is, I have never received more than 1mil in GA retaliation from an SoC flash

Here is a weak example from the same fight with Nayabs character Alara United

Hierophant's shield flashes! [4,309,108]
Hierophant crushed Chandra Nalaar with Idle Speculation [11037404]
Chandra Nalaar's Guardian Angel smote Hierophant (220,774)

Hierophant tapped Jace Beleren with Idle Speculation [541755]
Jace Beleren's Guardian Angel smote Hierophant (248,757)
Hierophant bruised Jace Beleren with Idle Speculation [317150]
Jace Beleren's Guardian Angel smote Hierophant (139,128)
Hierophant bruised Jace Beleren with Idle Speculation [262718]
Jace Beleren's Guardian Angel smote Hierophant (116,113)


I despise the spellcheck this game has, it is a bane all of its own. There might as well be a grammar-check added to the game grrr...

Oddly enough the only answer for me was the axbow... while GA would have helped, the fact is that teams properly setup for the SoC should have enough AC to make GA all but useless.
