View Full Version : Shield Allies?

Ok people I got to ask, this have been bugging me for some time now.... how does Shield Allies work?

Does it affect everyone around the Creature or just the one on the sides or just the one behind.

There's no tooltip explaining it or any difference in creature stats.

Anyone know?

Any allied creature who's in their neighbouring squares gets 50% reduction from ranged, non magical damage.

Creatures adjacent to the swordsmen get only 50% damage from ranged attacks, that simple.

Thanks, so every one then, even if they are infront of the swordmen http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Yep. Even in front.

They're great to protect the marksman. Notice that swordsman with inquisitor/clerics protects the marksman very well.

Just a note: that's a great ability, making support troops actually do their jobs. If you ignore it, you could think than swordsmen, being rather slow, are underpowered, but it would be a great mistake.
