Do these abilities stack with several instances of the same ability in range of a model casting a spell?
To be clear, they do stack with each other, my question is regarding a situation where the spellcaster is in range of 2-3 instances of Mage Static or Arcane Consumption.
The rule for same name abilities seem to indicate only 1 instance of the ability is suffered:
So the casting model would only suffer 1d3 damage or -3 rng and +1 cost, no matter how many auras of these abilities they are in.
But it would be great to get confirmation on how it works.
Obviously I’m not official, but you do indeed only suffer the effects once. Early on, I really wanted to apply the effects of the Storm Raptor animus Sky Fire from my caster and a Storm Raptor, and was politely informed I’m not able to do so
Abilities of the same name do not stack
Mage Static does not “stack,” or that is to say, a model in range of 2 Mage Static models would not suffer a cumulative +2 COST and -6RNG to its spells.
Arcane Consumption does not “stack” in the sense that a model within range of 2 of them will not suffer a cumulative 2d3 damage roll.
However, a model in range of 2 Arcane Consumption effects will suffer 2 separate 1d3 damage rolls.
This is not a “cumulative” and ongoing effect, but 2 single effects that are triggered simultaneously and resolved sequentially.
Another example of this would be a single model casting a spell within 10" of 2 void engines and triggering the effect where they each gain a “power” token.
