Failed will save (only) Edit

Does anyone know: if the first saving throw (Will) fails, is there a fear effect ("image of utmost horror" and all) on the target? If so, what is the duration? Zenobia 21:44, 5 May 2006 (PDT)

  • If will save fails then the fort roll is made. There isn't any special graphic to indicate that the target has failed the will save only. Harleyquin 07:19, 6 May 2006 (PDT)
  • Actually there is. The damage impact and sonic blast to your head if you fail the willsave and got the fort save.
If you fail both, you'll se the VFX_IMP_DEATH animation.GhostNWN 14:14, 6 May 2006 (PDT)
  • That will teach me to make a statement without verification. Still the sonic blast is a purely visual effect with no significant gameplay consequences is it not? Harleyquin 14:24, 6 May 2006 (PDT)
  • Except for the damage, it has no consequence. Also, the target will not suffer from fear if it fails the willsave to answer the OP's question. GhostNWN 15:32, 6 May 2006 (PDT)

Copy-and-pasting Edit

(Wait a minute... "Weird"?) Sorry i have copy/paste cause the both spell have the same effect and immune -> Script line

// Immunity to death magic, should not make you immune to Phantasmal Killer. // So we need to make the effect supernatural. ApplyEffectToObject(DURATION_TYPE_INSTANT, SupernaturalEffect(EffectDeath()), oTarget); -ILKAY

  • Heh. One reason I was surprised by "weird" was that I missed it in the first edit. (I had both weird and phantasmal killer open, and I forgot which one I was editing.) --The Krit 22:31, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Death immunity Edit

Looking at this spells script it seems as though if the Target is immune to Death, MySavingThrow will return FALSE on the Fortitude save. So the target will always die if they make it to the fort save, with no chance to just take damage.--Grey Ghost 8765k 07:10, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

  • The death is an else command. The structure is if the fortitude save is succeeded (any non-zero number value is returned) the target takes damage, otherwise (meaning if the fortitude save is not succeeded or my saving throw returns 0) the target dies. Immunity to death has no impact on my saving throw (but saves versus death magic will be added to the fortitude save). The case where 2 is returned for my saving throw often corresponds to the saving throw type being matched with an immunity (oddly immunity to death magic does not match the death magic saving throw type).

  • That was a lot of text just to tell me that saving throw roll of Saving_Throw_Type_Death doesn't check for immunity to Death Magic. Thanks though, I didn't know that particular info..--Grey Ghost 8765k January 26, 2010
  • WhiZard likes covering all the details. :) --The Krit 01:04, January 28, 2010 (UTC)
