Question about deflection

Postby hambone » Mon Apr 22, 2013 6:23 pm

I know deflect can be used to deflect mental attacks but how would that work with perception based attacks since they do not have an attack bonus to roll against?

One way to look at it is that it simply can't be deflected. Another option is to treat it like resisting a perception grapple, where the perception rank counts for an attack bonus.

Ok excellent I was wondering since one character someone is playing has deflect but no other defense or savings throws so I will prolly just use the power as the deflect rank thanks.
