    Ability Preservation

    Post by Wayward Daughter on Mon 9 May 2011 - 15:12

    If someone tried to absorb abilities from a person who had ability preservation, would they get a copy of the abilities while the original owner still kept them, or would nothing at all happen?

    I guess nothing would happen, because the Ability Perseveration would counter the absorbing and it's not like mimicry, that would just make a copy of them, so shrug But then again, if the abilities are hardcryped, and can never really be stolen, just jammed, like Hiro's was, then I guess they'd just get a copy?

    my guess would be that nothing will happen and they would not be able to copy abilities- mostly due to the ability preservation working to preserve the abilities the user has and not let anybody take or even copy what they have.

    I know but i guess it would go into save mode and try and prevent anybody from getting it. But i suppose its down to the individual and their aspect of the ability.

    Personally I would think nothing will have. Preserving the ability will all mean (to me anyway) keeping it safe and keeping its original content. Although a mimic will not actually take it but copy it, I would like to think that ability preservation would saught of protect its abilities from anything.

    Basically it depends on how Ability Absorption works, which we don't really know Laughing Does it copy and block, or steal?

    Asking again, and mentioning that it's in the context of W8, if you hadn't worked that out. In other words, I'm wondering if Arthur could end up getting copies of all of Peter's abilities, or Nathan's (not sure which one'll end up proving Ability Preservation). Just thinking it could make it more interesting/more of a challenge if he did end up with that ability, or even all of Peter's whistle

    Changed my mind here when I realised it'd make a future SL impossible, as you by now know Wink

    Anyway, I've a new question. Ability Preservation also includes preserving against things other than negating abilities, like drugs and eclipses, so should Ability Invulnerability be the same? Or would that be too potent? It's meant to be Jyiara's second most powerful ability, though.
