TwistyRopes Posted March 13, 2014 Report Share Posted March 13, 2014 So while I was working on my Pandora crew I had to do a double take at the "Voices" upgrade particularly the ability that Pandora gains. For those who don't know (which I feel are few and far between) the upgrade reads: Pandora gains the following Ability: >There Is No Shelter Here: Enemy models within (*) 6 may not reduce damage which was dealt with the Misery ability. ...so what's the point of taking that upgrade besides getting the trigger? The 2E FAQ reads the following... "Q: Can a model use a Soulstone to prevent damage which may not be reduced? A: Yes. Damage prevention is different than damage reduction. " So the FAQ says that the Voices ability doesn't matter because reducing damage is different from preventing damage (which is what Soulstones are used for) so you can still prevent the damage via your master and henchmen. And then follow that up with another FAQ that reads..."Q: If a model with Armor is within range of multiple models with the Misery Ability and the model fails a Wp duel, does it suffer 1 damage from each model with the Misery Ability? Or does it suffer “one lump sum” of damage which it would then be able to reduce with Armor? A: It would suffer 1 damage from each model with the Misery Ability separately. " So then what's the point of Pandora gaining the ability besides being able to ignore "Peaches" on Somer? Not to mention the upgrade is limited...but I really don't see the point of ever taking the upgrade because it already ignores armor by Misery happening separately at 1 damage at a time, thus avoiding armor. So unless you're taking the upgrade to get the trigger to Self Loathing and Self Harm...is there some other point that I'm missing or is it a (pretty much) useless ability?
