Has anyone had any luck with reduced points cost resistances and immunities for beig Spirit only? I see spirit less resistances are published, and with the advent of a published spirit only MR this seemed the next logical step.

How did you go about it - listing particular ones with a cost per line? Batching"may purchase resistance X, Y, Z" at 2/3 cost vs spirit only?

Thanks for any thoughts

These are effectively spiritual effects rarely do they come up as magical so the reality is no reduction - I applied for cheaper 1/2fx fire because spiritual fire doesn't exist and was told no the Spirit only races don't account for cheaper resistances...

The one thing you will get is 1/2 FX Mantics from a Magic Source 100 / 150 pts

Boo hiss.

Ok thanks for the input Ryan. I thought freeze as white mana spell was a high likelihood. Was worh asking! Do you know if the half effect magic based mantics includes resistance levels, or is it just damage?

Just damage but it is an incredibly potent catch all immunity from my own experience of using it so don't let that put you off..

Applies to Mantic Sabre's / Swords of Power / Fire Blades as well as the damaging spell's themselves.

Also when a mantic is non standard ask the Referee if it would apply - it has to be Magic or Spirit so 50% chance it will work... smile.gif

So I guess that means I still need, for example, to pay full cost for resistance to black mana to counter instant death magic based 'mantics like Anath's annihilation.

just buy immune to involuntary shape shifting instead... it also protects you from alot of the onyx spells as well now. (if they were to be cast mantically that is)

Yes,

Lee relatively recently passed me Draconic Resistances from Immunity to Magical Damage so I could buy the 1/2 Effect Colours of magic at a little bit of a discount.

Funnily enough I was contemplating applying for that earlier today.

I had an upgrade for the Spiritual one that gives resistance levels etc - it was +100pts. Worth it once you have 2-3 resistances
