Perhaps the nulify token effect should be a special influence ?

Anyway just sharing an idea, please share your opinions

i've got to ask...what's the power stat for on this creature? i see no point in it
[/quote]

Currently there is no point for it,

it was put for the possibility of having to change the nulify token effect to an aura
and replacing the ability with something like:
[b]dispel magic effect[/b] and using the power as a % opportunity to dispel magic effects

Correct me if I am wrong, but the token effect does affect before starting the combat round, but the suggested creature magic will work only meanwhile battle, right?
[/quote]

I believe it's solvable by making it an aura and having it affect the battle from the beginning
and replacing the ability with something like dispel magic effect (dispel freeze, protect etc)

I have just 2 creatures with tokens, yet. But in my opinion stop all tokens effects of all enemy creatures is VERY powerfull and unfair with the people who spend credits with it. By another hand, stop all tokens effects of just one creature is VERY useless. Maybe, you should keep your ideai with multiple targets, in low level dispel magic effect (dispel freeze, protect etc) or dispel token effect, in maximum level dispel both effects, but always with multiple targets.

An aura wont help because tokens are applied BEFORE Auras'. Are you suggesting that this aura then undoe's what the token effect has previously done? Sounds tricky to me.

How powerful will the aura be? will it nullify all tokens? if so that seems a bit much to remove all the things people have paid for.

Could there be a check before applying the tokens if there is such an aura, or simply applying this specific aura before the tokens ?

A creature that would nulify (yes ALL) the effects of tokens of a few random creatures in the ritual sounds quite intriguing to me

I don't want to undermine tokens or their importance to the game, that's why I only put multiple targets on it's highest level
But if you think this is also too powerfull, then perhaps there should only be 1-2 in a ritual restricted by species ?
(i believe it would be more tricky to nulify some token effects in all creatures than all token effects in a few creatures, but I could be wrong)

How does that sound? Would you prefer it only had dispel magic ?

Well, there could be any number of changes to the game. But that sounds like quite a lot larger change than just another new ability.

No matter how much i despise tokens if someone has wasted 20$ per crit on tokens, they really should be able to use them.

Tokens are a noobs weapon, but sadly i must defend them saying nullifiying all tokens on a crit would just be harsh to people who did waste their money.

Nullifying any tokens on any creature is hard enough, all is probably harder as you have to find each effect and reverse it. Or add a check to disable them before. Eitherway i dont like the ability because it means people wasted their money even more than just normally having the tokens.

Not exactly... This creature would be useless in combat, right? So, the tokenuser would have the advantage of a higher percentage of stats or more creatures... Not the same but an advantage nonetheless.

Indeed it is useless in combat and also unpredictable in low levels cause it nulifies both friendly and enemy tokens
only as an elder Xal it can target only the enemy
