    Does magic resistance help countering with armageddon effects? (Wrath, killing)

    Is the Bone Palace a good place for waiting the end of the ages?

    that raises a good question.
    But I don't think that it helps with anything (but it helps against some of the horsemen which may have fire or death damage).
    only thing that are not damaged during armageddon is "non-alive" : golems, catapults, ships, demons, undeads and angels... and that's all.

    I don't really understand the question about bone palace

    The Bone Palace reduces magic damage by 50%. So the question is whether one could pile all of their valuable troops into the city so that they aren't struck by rage or deleted when the AC hits 90 & 100, respectively.


    It's an interesting question, but I don't have an answer.

    I'm pretty sure the enrage effect isn't considered magical, so even the Bone Palace wouldn't help. I'm not sure about the culling at AC 100, but Bone Palace and general magic resistance (not to mention fire resistance) would help against the Worldbreak spell, for example.
