There is an epic destiny called "Dragonheart" in Martial Powers 2. The utility power for this epic destiny is called "Dragon Shield". The power is defined as follows:

Daily ✦ Martial, Stance
Immediate Reaction ✦ Personal
Trigger: An attack bloodies you
Effect: Until the stance ends, you gain resistance to all damage equal to your Constitution modifier, and whenever you take damage from a melee attack, your resistance increases by 5 (up to a maximum of 20). The stance ends when you are knocked unconscious or are no longer bloodied.

What is the maximum resistance you can achieve with this power? If I have a constitution modifier of 6, will my maximum resistance with Dragon Shield, provided I keep getting hit with melee and stay bloodied, be 26 or 20?


Up to 20.

You get your stat, 6 in your example, then when you take melee damage, you go to 11, then 16, then 20. It's capped at 20 (not 20+stat).

  • \$\begingroup\$ What if I have the Essence Mage paragon path? It increases my resistances by 4. Is it before or after the limit? \$\endgroup\$ – András Jan 24 '14 at 8:40
