In our last session, we drew the Ironskin rumor card, and we are unsure about what effect it could have in the final avatar fight (Master of the Hunt), if any. The Ironskin entry on page 40 of the rulebook seems riddled with problems:
A figure with Ironskin is immune to the effects of Aura, Bleed, Burn, Pierce, Poison, and Sorcery. In addition, all damage dealt to figures with Ironskin by attacks that affect more than one space (such as Blast, Burn, and Breath) is reduced to zero. This ability does not affect attacks made by an avatar.
First of all, there is no attack that affects more than one space named "Burn". "Burn" is a lingering effect that deals 1 damage to a figure if it doesn't roll a surge at the beginning of its turn to get rid of said Burn effect.
1) Should "Burn" be replaced by "Bolt", the third (and very rare) kind of area attack, like on the Skull Shield card for example?
2) Does "This ability" in the last sentence about the avatar attacks refer a) to the whole Ironskin ability (but then, why would they have used "Ironskin" in the first two sentences instead of using the wording "this ability" that appears in the last sentence?), or b) only to the previous sentence (the one beginning with "In addition...")
3) In case the answer to 2) is a), is a hero with Ironskin at least immune to the avatar's Aura, as Aura is not an attack but an ability, or is Ironskin completely useless in avatar battles?
Maybe this could be a case for the FAQ, unless of course someone with better English and/or Descent rules knowledge is able to answer those questions with certainty.
