Is the damage from Lightning Hand electrical or magical in nature or perhaps both? Would it pass a Helghast's damage resistance?
mthomason said:It depends whether you interpret it like I do, that the magic affects nature and nature does the damage, or whether you decide that it's actually a magical effect that looks and acts like electricity.
KirinDave said:Well, by that interpretation, almost no spells do magical damage. Heck, you could use that interpretation to say the bolts from a wizard's staff are non-magical as well. Slippery slope and all... You end up with nothing but magic weapons doing magical damage, which suddenly makes Helghasts remarkably powerful...
ParanoidObsessive said:Or, to put it another way, if Grey Star were to use Elementalism to create fire, that fire would be non-magical. But since it was CREATED through magic, it would have the ability to wound a Helghast as well, whereas throwing an oil lantern at one would probably have no effect.
