Shielding Questions...

Postby Anshun Tulish on March 13th, 2011, 3:09 pm

Could a person competent in shielding theoretically task a shield with holding water or res or other substances in or out? It seems like you could do it, as in the wiki, it says a certain level of gloves could absorb/deflect a reimancy-made fireball, and since once res is transformed, it is that substance, it seems like a bowl shaped shield could do it. Not sure about blocking res itself though...

Sure. :) It just depends on the situation. Normal seawater, sure... but if the res caster of seawater was a higher level point wise than your shielding skill, your shield wouldn't hold it. The caster who created the substance would walk right through your shield.
