1 "Rebreather" questions... on Thu Sep 29, 2016 5:44 pm

Wondering if building a "rebreather" would be worth it...

Note:
A "rebreather" is a dragonborn who can recharge his breath weapon. Making it essentially an at-will power (usable 3 or more times a round) instead of an encounter power.


How would these feats/abilities interact:

Ancient Soul:

Ancient Soul
Heroic Tier

Prerequisite: Dragonborn, Dragon Magic sorcerer, dragon breath racial power

Benefit: Your dragon breath power is considered an arcane attack power.
In addition, if your dragon breath power deals damage of the same type as your Dragon Magic class feature gives you resistance to, you gain the following benefit:

Whenever you take damage of the type dealt by your dragon breath (after the damage dealt is reduced by your resistance), you regain the use of your dragon breath if you have already expended it in this encounter.

Nusemnee's Atonement:

Nusemnee's Atonement

Benefit: You gain a +2 feat bonus to saving throws against charm effects.

  Whenever an attack you make would damage an ally, you can choose to take the damage instead. You have resist 5 against damage taken this way. You can choose to take the damage even when you are dominated. This resistance increases to 10 at 11th level and 15 at 21st level.

Dragon Soul:

Dragon Soul: Choose a damage type: acid, cold, fire, lightning, poison, or thunder. You gain resist 5 to that damage type. The resistance increases to 10 at 11th level and 15 at 21st level. Your arcane powers ignore any target's resistance to that damage type up to the value of your resistance.

Questions...
Ancient Soul:
If a dragonborn breathed on himself, can he chose not to pierce his own resistance?
Note: the feat Hurl Breathe makes his breathe a burst 2 in 10 instead of a blast 3.


Nusemnee's Atonement:
If a dragonborn breathed on a ally and chose to take the damage.
1. is the redirected damage the same type as his breathe? (would he recharge?)
2. if it is the same type, would he pierce the resistance the feat specifies? (although they wouldn't stack, he would have his own resistance to that type as well).


Can an ally willing get hit? If he always pierces his own resist, then this may help...  
War Wizardry:

War Wizardry
Paragon Tier
Prerequisite: 11th level
Benefit: Your arcane spells take a -5 penalty on attack rolls against allies, and deal only half their normal damage to allies.

If you breath on yourself and you have resistance to your own breath weapon, I don't think you can turn your resistance off. Like wise if you breath on yourself and you do not have resistance to your own breath, I would think you would take damage. It is totally possible to injure yourself.

If you breath on an ally and you choose to take the damage, yes, I would think that the damage would be of the same type that the ally would have taken. As far as resistance, if he has resistance to the damage type, in order to take damage I would think that the amount of damage taken would have to overcome the level of the resistance.

If the power says "...all enemies..." or something similar, then no, a willing ally cannot get hit.
