  1. Also' date=' uh. it's pretty much debateable if nondetection wards off true sight since some rule out anything besides the divination spells given in the spell description while others just allow protection from ALL divination spells, which in my opinion seems like giving the spell too much credit.

    there is no debate.

     

    there is a difference between what you perceive, and fact.

     

    from an RPG/D&D standpoint, no, nondetection does not grant 100% protection against divination spells. it is an opposed caster level check.

    true sight is a divination spell. it is a divination attempt.

     

     

    There indeed is a difference in what you perceive and fact.

     

     

    nondetection

    "The warded creature or object becomes difficult to detect by divination spells such as clairaudience/clairvoyance, locate object, and detect spells."

     

    -

    detect evil

    "You can sense the presence of evil. The amount of information revealed depends on how long you study a particular area or subject."

     

    clairvoyance

    "Clairaudience/clairvoyance creates an invisible magical sensor at a specific location that enables you to hear or see (your choice) almost as if you were there."

     

    locate object

    "You sense the direction of a well-known or clearly visualized object."

    -

     

    and then true sight

    You confer on the subject the ability to see all things as they actually are.

     

     

    What do the three other have in common that true sight doesnt? They're all aimed at a certain location or person. True sight is bestowed upon someone and the certain someone just gazes at the world, seeing it as it is, the certain someone does not have to attempt anything, shit's just revealed to him.

     

     

    It's nice that you've managed to bring out the divination part that nondetection helps against but you seem to have bluntly ignored the important part of the spell description.

     

     

    also i probably shouldnt have said "wards off", as nondetection most certainly doesn't prevent divination spells from locating you 100%.

    sorry.

     

     

    oh no!!

    seems like there is a debate after all.


  2. I, uh, fully understand that he uses magic to possess it. I even brought up the quote from wowwiki which states that his magic is even employed to keep the body from decaying. I wasn't aware that casting a spell, spell-like effect or using a supernatural ability leaves some magical residue that divination picks up like cum-stains under an ultraviolet light.

     

    Also, uh. it's pretty much debateable if nondetection wards off true sight since some rule out anything besides the divination spells given in the spell description while others just allow protection from ALL divination spells, which in my opinion seems like giving the spell too much credit.


  3. Do you have anything to confirm what you're stating so far?

     

    Because demon hunter's Spectral Sight doesn't seem to qualify as True Sight, instead the two seem as completely different types of divination-type spells/abilities.

     

    And the way that Balnazzar lets Dathrohan know that he'll be inhabiting his body after consuming his soul seems to be further proving my theory on possession, which would then work against your theory of a magical disguise.

     

    Plus this sentence "Balnazzar killed him and possessed his corpse, his powerful magic protecting the former Paladin's body from decay.", on Saidan Dathrohan's wowwiki page, in my opinion, further suggests that we're still dealing with the host's original body.

     

     

    Though, the question is, wouldn't nathrezim and other demons just be able to evade detection from spectral sight, while under the effect of magical disguises, by employing warding spells?

     

     

     

    though all in all, we're gonna need a GM on this one.


  4. I really don't think that Demon Hunters would be able to detect Nathrezim via True Sight as Nathrezim aren't disguised by the means of regular magic at all.

     

    At least that's how I've understood their ability to possess things.

    also to salmon that asked me yesterday if they can temporarily leave the bodies that they've occupied.

  5. This thing doesn't even deserve a thread' date=' if I may be that blunt. Seriously people, this is a lady that appears after you die in-game. If Blizzard actually wanted to make a detailed story and craft one for her, they would've done so upon making her kind. She's nothing else. And that quest is probably something that they've done upon running out of ideas, because, seriously? Just read the quest, it has more [i']funny[/i] references in it then 9GAG in it's entire community.

     

     

    lets instead have another "rate the x above" thread, huh.
