Battle magic

The article states that Force of Will helps against battle magic, and in fact commanders with some levels of this skill could defeat the magic used by several Undead NPCs from Underworld in tournament IV. But it would be rather odd to have a skill so far only used in one tournament, and I guess that Force of Will would also help against the fear line of runes. Can somebody confirm this theory? –Dunnoob 19:08, 10 June 2012 (ADT)

  • I don't believe it has any effect on runes. It's been a long time since anyone in Harmless tested it, so there could have been an unannounced change, but I doubt it since that's a significant enough feature enhancement to earn a release note.--HonoredMule 22:59, 10 June 2012 (ADT)
    Yeah, can't be new, but might be old, and harmless labs missed it, because nobody ever tried a ward of insanity to frighten up to 300 stalwarts… ;-)Dunnoob 03:42, 11 June 2012 (ADT)
    Long before the tournament, when force of will had no apparent use whatsoever, we did extensively test the possibility of interaction between Force of Will and any kind of runes. There was no reduction in number killed by death runes, nor reduction in the effective scare-count on terror runes. Sending N-1 units against an N-charge rune would killed or scare off the attacker (depending on the rune type) and leave 1 charge.--HonoredMule 10:29, 11 June 2012 (ADT)
