Armour that ignores damage on doubles vs weapon that kills on doubles?
Hello, We had a game the other day when one player had a special armour that ignores damage rolls on doubles and the other had a sword that killed the defender on doubles. Which one has preference? Do they cancel out? Do you ignore the damage roll and then kill the defender anyways? Thanks Frank V.

I would ignore both effect and go for a normal roll. Dunno where but in the manual is written that 2 opposite effect is like no effect.

This has been confirrmed that Clan armours trump Critical Strike.

I hit enter before I finished my post. Andy confirmed this last year and I haven't seen anything that changed that in the new edition. I think the rationale was that the Armour ignores the roll completely, and you cannot complete the Critical Strike.

Correct, if you roll a double the result is ignored so the critical strike is ignored.
