Guardian Shield - Vulnerable

1 Guardian Shield - Vulnerable on Tue Sep 07, 2010 2:21 pm

No, she gains resistance 3 after the initial take is resolved.

So she took 6 necrotic and an extra 5 because she's vulnerable. Then she gains resistance to 3 to all damage for a turn.

The cold attack hit her and she resisted 3 of it, but she still took 6.

The shield says:
Immediate Interrupt. You can use this power when an adjacent ally is hit by an attack. You are hit by the attack instead. The ally is unaffected by the attack. You then gain resistance to all damage equal to half the damage dealt by the attack (if any) until the start of your next turn.

Technically the attack on her only did 6hp of necrotic damage. She took an extra 5 for vulnerability, but I don't believe that counts as damage from the attack. Thia would have only taken 6 hits, and when I thought I
would be taking 6 hits, I take 11 instead? Then for the purposes of
resistance, instead of resistance 5, (which is half of the 11 damage
I took), I only gain resistance 3 (which is half of 6).

I believe this is correct.

The damage dealt by the attack was 6 necrotic. You gain resistance based on the damage of the attack not the damage taken.

You then gain resistance to all damage equal to half the damage dealt by the attack

If the shield said you take untyped damage or that you take damage equal to what the ally would have taken then the vulnerability might not kick in.

Instead the shield says that you take the hit instead of the ally. This means you would take 6hp of necrotic damage.
