    Jack of all Trades without Educated

    The answer to this question would affect how I answered this here: Ultimately, without Educated, can one use Jack of all Trades to identify items? My belief is yes, and for two reasons: 1) JoaT does...

    Merchant Insight/Jack of All Trades

    I would say they work together, much like Eternal Resolution combos with Heroic Interception. One gives you a Resolute and the other triggers off a Resolute. If one ritual gives you the benefit of Identification, and the other gives you benefits while identifying, I don’t see why they wouldn’t...

    Rituals and Armor tags

    I can answer that. The ritual targets the Armor tag, not the Armor rep. “But why, Evan? Why does it work that way?” Simple. Because, mechanically, your armor isn’t Armor unless it has a tag. Consider this: If you’re wearing decorative metal (untagged armor), it’s not an IG item that can be...

    Beta Books -> Update Timeline?

    I was simply curious if there was a timeline on the updated versions being released, particularly the Player’s Guide. The Player’s Guide is currently the only published resource for starting character wealth, and as much as I hate using it for all the reasons that have been made apparent, it is...

    We could also get rid of that silly requirement that blunts can’t thrust. I have no idea why that exists.

    Create Trap text change

    So, the reason for my ARC post is because the text for Create Trap in .12 indicated that ranks of Create Trap were only required for arming and throwing, but in the beta ARB: “With 1 rank of Create Trap they may try to disarm Noisemaker, Gas, Scroll, and Weapon Traps; with 2ranks they may...

    Resolved Create Trap Requirements

    Since Create Trap requires multiple levels to disarm specific types of traps now, will it be a requirement that a trap must be able to be visibly assessed to be legal? Otherwise, people risk setting off a trap just figuring out if they can actually attempt a disarm.

    Intercept and Killing Blow

    Yeah, @Gandian Ravenscroft made the most solid of arguments.

    Intercept and Killing Blow

    @Feldor was kind enough to point out I was in error about Cloaks. I am now reconsidering my position on this.

    Intercept and Killing Blow

    I would say “No.” A Killing Blow cannot be negated by any method of defense. It cannot be cloaked or otherwise stopped outside of Immunity. Ergo, I would argue that it also cannot be Intercepted. Furthermore, since a KB can only be delivered onto an incapacitated target, Intercepting it would...

    CMA - Locking Skills?

    I just noticed that skills do not appear locked yet for Teacher purposes. Is that because some places are still converting and it would hinder the process?

    Evade is one of those “some defenses.” It is a weapon-specific defense that works against poison-coatings. Quote located for you.

    Big West 2019 - Favorite Moments

    Here’s mine - 1. Becoming invested in Plue’s growth during a teaching session that I’ve been looking forward to since the last time we had her up here. Learning about who she is from that teaching, and some personal things she shared with me. Also, receiving a gift that’s now a permanent part...

    I’m pretty sure it was clarified that Evade still works on Poison physical delivery, just not orange packet delivery

    ARB: Alliance Rulebook Beta Feedback

    I should clarify that I believe Doom Blow is intended to work with EB, but the wording in the current beta rule book has specific wording that implies it excludes anything not Assassinate or Slay. “This may be combined with an Assassinate or Slay for additional damage.”

    ARB: Alliance Rulebook Beta Feedback

    The current text for Doom Blow indicates it is specifically compatible with Slay and Assassinate, which implies it isn’t compatible with Eviscerating Blow.

    When does log open?

    I believe the current plan is to have Logistics open around 4 PM.
