  • Dragons and Arcane Resistance

    So, discussion from a chat group led to this line of reasoning:

    Dragons are intrinsically supernatural.
    This means that their natural weapon attacks can damage creatures normally that have protection against non-magical attacks, like many demons, etc.
    Does this also mean that a defender with Arcane Resistance (or Improved Arcane Resistance) should get damage from such attacks reduced?

    Per the Edge <italics added>, "He acts as if he had 2 points of Armor when hit by damage-causing arcane powers."

    Natural Weapons are not an arcane power, so Arcane Resistance does not apply against them.
