I have a question regarding a mythic Guardian ability called Absorb Blow.
Absorb Blow (Su)As an immediate action, whenever you take hit point damage from a single source (such as a dragon’s breath, a spell, or a weapon), you can expend one use of mythic power to reduce the damage you take from that source by 5 per tier (to a minimum of 0 points of damage taken). If you have another ability or effect that reduces damage (such as protection from energy), reduce the damage with the absorb blow ability before applying any other damage-reducing effects. For every 10 points of damage that this ability prevents, for 1 minute you gain DR 1/epic and 5 points of resistance against acid, cold, electricity, fire, and sonic damage. The DR and resistances stack with any other DR and resistances that you have.
Most of the ability is clear to me and i am the GM. The one and only question i have is "stacks the DR and resistance with itself" ?
"..any other DR and resistance.." indicates that it stacks with adamant armor, spells, barbarian abilities etc. but not with itself. Secondly i think it can bw overpowered very early in a mythic game. Tier 2 with Paragon Feat let you absorb 20 damage in exchange for 2 DR and 10 resistance against everything for only 1 mythic point. Repeat that 2 or 3 times and you are invulnerable against elemental damage. I am fine with the DR but the resistance bonus is too high in my opinion.
Can someone help me ? Forum has different answers. Maybe some experiences help if you dont have a solution at all :)
