Meh, just realized that I have crated this immunity by myself since those Non-livings has so many immunityes from creature abilities, but actually are nor sure if it is true. Anyone could check that? x] --HaxLi 16:48, 23 March 2014 (CET)


In going over the list of factors that affect damage, I stumbled on petrify/stone gaze and then on this page. My memory differs from the information given here. As I recall, petrify and stone gaze are indeed identical, but different from paralyze. Both specialties last three rounds and cause the affected unit to skip its turn in combat, but petrified or stone gazed units take only half damage, whereas paralyzed units take full damage. Also, if I recall correctly, stoned units that are attacked retaliate at half their strength and paralyzed units at only a quarter. I propose that I test these hypotheses and edit the page accordingly.

Regarding immunities (also in response to the post above), there is a post by Angelito on HeroesCommunity that details all immunities (available here, which I believe is accurate. For example, to my recollection golems can be paralyzed, which is in line with that post and opposed to the information on this page. Given the doubt as formulated on this discussion page, I propose I also edit that part of this page accordingly. -Entelechy 20:36, 14 July 2014 (CEST)

I have just run some tests using scorpicores and greater basilisks and it seems the above hypotheses were correct, except that retaliation after petrification is 100%. I will note this on the respective pages. -Entelechy 21:28, 14 July 2014 (CEST)
I have now finished editing this page and also renamed it, but I will deal with the Paralyzing Venom page later. I have fixed the redirects as well. Would it be possible, though, to remove the Pralyze page? It is superfluous because of the typo. I will then test any other redirects when making the Paralyzing Venom page later. -Entelechy 22:48, 14 July 2014 (CEST)
I do not have the privilges to remove pages, although I have asked that from User:Terra once. However, I have usde {{Trash|<reason for trashing>}} template to mark unnecessary pages. Another option is ot #REDIRECT them. --Kapteeni Ruoska 07:15, 15 July 2014 (CEST)
Thanks for your help! I wasn't sure about redirect, but Trash should work just fine. I also edited the faulty link, so for all practical purposes the issue should be solved! -Entelechy 19:52, 15 July 2014 (CEST)
