Is the intent to make such creatures flat out immune to the damage type or to shield them from resist-down effects? Because if you change the label to "immune" but they still can be affected by piercing effects (eg Really Big Sword), that would be super confusing. Not really sure these changes are worth the complexity that they bring.

For ones that can be pierced, they should be 100% resistant but not immune, I'd think.

Indeed; if it says immune then that means you shouldn't be able to pierce with the RBS. There's also the issue of corrosion, which also ignores resistances.

If they had immunity in Magma Mines it would almost break with the Half-Dragon. Unless you had a monster or wall lined up, a fairly difficult task in MM, it would be literally impossible.

That would also make the specialist badge literally unattainable (although Warmonger would still technically be possible for GG followers; that would still leave it as easily the hardest non-vicious badge in the game, however).

Hmm... Quite a problem. I don't see what was wrong in the first place.

I'm going to say this about Mystera: if refreshment is going to stay this way, then mystic balance, weakening, and flames need to be buffed.

Agreed. She's very underpowered right now.

"Refreshment" is roughly balanced right now. The problem with that is that "magic" is a little on the weak side, "mystic balance" is overpriced, and "weakening" and "flames" are distinctly underpowered.

I think magic is fine. I use it to get my non-elfs to the 15 threshold.
