Thanks all for sharing your helpful knowledge.

Harlequin - do you recall what spells he decided to use his Sorcerer's Dispels upon?

But of course...

As it happens both were against Thunder Claps. One from myself and one from Ichabod. I suspect that the risk to his line being broken was too great to allow.

Their entire party seemed to be immune to battle magic. My bolts and mass flashes were of no avail against them not jus the adamancer.
I have encountered halmadonians which usually are effected by my battle magic. Maybe the adamancer casts immunity on the party.
Would it be possible to dispel this protection at all?

Another note to think on. The adamancer seemed to be able to prevent people benefiting from the powers of the good sphere. He did something to kylar that rended him unable to be cured by anything other than neutral healing.

Useful to know. Was this through touch or at range?

Re:Fighting Adamancers - Query 3 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 1  
I'm unsure how much of this discussion I've missed.
I apologise if I'm repeating things that are already know but I'm going to try and recall all of the things I remember about encountering the Adomancers.

The first we met seemed to be able to defend himself against most things though I don't recall perfectly how the fight went. He had some protections from magic and ofcourse reflected everything cast at him or blows that came upon him.
The first Adomancer we slew and his group were strong warriors ofcourse but were easier to kill as I was, at the time, a shrine/beacon of the evil sphere. I had taken in one of the shrines for the Dreadlord the previous day I believe. So whilst this was the case no good power invocations of any kind worked within a large radius of me, so the Heights had to use neutral sphere only to cure and had no good spirits or mass cures, however, it ment all within our group that were healing were having to go quite some way aways to cure.
Whilst all of this was going on it seemed the Adomancer was there mostly to observe. When the rest of the group was destroyed he began to walk away, myself, scorch and two others followed him down and scorch gradually destroyed him. I wasn't very far away and the Adomancer most definitely cured himself, I can't recall if it was with the good sphere or not, I believe it was?!
That was when scorch received the soul crystal.

Following that encounter, I have had several discussions with one or perhaps several adomancers, who can tell when they seem to look so similar, many conversations whilst within the prison.
They can tell if you speak the truth or not and seem to be able to draw knwoledge with ease.

The second time we fought and an Adomancer was present was before our group was expelled from the prison, minus myself. Once again he seemed to be there more to observe, they seem to only get involved in combat when they are dispelling things or aiding the heights in some particular way but they don't walk up and down the line curing or cast things at their enemy unless it is a reflection or for self protection.
The Adomancer became involved in this combat when expelling souls from our group from the prison when they fell in combat or again for observation.

I believe these are the only significant times I've encountered an Adomancer, any other times there may have been I don't believe to have been in combat.
I would suggest that any underestimation of what an Adomancer could pull out from its sleeve would be unwise on our part. Ofcourse preparation, discussion and plans of any kind will come on useful, but I would be prepared to be surprised by them. It would seem with physical force is the way to destroy one, if the case is that we wish to destroy then ofcourse?

I hope that proves to be of some help.

I'm afraid I'm unsure if what he did to Kylar was delivered via touch or range. I was personally at the time attempting to read a scroll of mass heal in near darkness. It was only after that that Kylar informed me of what had happen.

Sorry.

Thank you Kiara, most useful.

Kylar has also helpfully clarified that the Adamancer removed access to Good Sphere curing from him as follows: "It was range. But he walked quite close to me to do it by holding up the crystal to me"

Can anybody remember what other effects any Adamancer has cast through his crystal before?

It seems to me though i may be completely wrong that the crystal is his source of power. Do we have any way of destroying/seperating him from that crystal?
Like I said I may be wrong but it is food for thought.

Ksndra,

Since speaking with Kylar, these were my suspicions also.

I have come across soul trap/soul cage devices in the past (e.g. one that could sever connection to the Evil Sphere for a moon), and these crystals sound like they have similar properties.

I also recall a prominent member of Fortunes Keep using some sort of crystal to transfer all damage onto the person who volunteered to guarantee his 'protection'.

Additionally, a crystal providing a permanent source of reflection would make sense.
