Question about Godhand

Unread postby samasamon » November 17th, 2008, 8:04 pm

Is it wrong translation or my misunderstanding?

Nullifies any attack below rank B.

This mean rank B attack work on him?

What it does is ignore damage below B, yes.


Which means B- attacks will be ignored. Another effect of God Hand is that any attacks above rank B (A and above) are reduced 1 rank (A=B, A+=A). God Hand also has the effect of gaining resistance to an attack after having been hit by it once - Whether Resistance means 'ignores' or 'reduces damage' i forget.

The overall jist of this is that a B rank attack will do B rank damage, C rank will do 0 damage, and A rank will do B rank damage.

So, any normal attack by any normal servant either deals B rank damage or no damage at all (NPs excluded), which is not enough to kill Berserker with his A constitution (1 hit, anyway)

So where does EX Rank come into play then? That's what I'm going to question about now.

Ok I can buy that, so it would be like thaking the full hit from an EX attack, or would it be reduced down to an S rank or something like that.

Well... according to my calculations, damage wise a full Ea will kill around... 80 lives.

So I don't think that the rank matters talking about a EX thing...

Ummm...
I thought - and + were not ranks, but multipliers/additional factors.

Such as + could mean that is will be far higher if the wind speed in the area is higher. Or - to signfy the same but that it will be lower if such is the case.

well,
you could think of it like that, as shown by the wiki.

but we all know that this is merely a speculation, as the only weapon with a solid parameter number is ea.

I doubt because I see many people usually say that in order to harm berserker you need rank B+ or higher. That mean rank B don't work on him, but the detail screen say ...below rank B...which mean rank B can harm him.

i.e.
Original Caliburn's rank should be A+ or higher because trace version can harm berserker.
