This is just a quick one today, noticed, naturally, when someone wanted to access to this spell.
Resist Water basically keeps you dry.
All I did was:
- remove the DR 2 vs. acid. I don't see why that's there. It doesn't help vs. steam, ice, etc. And there is a specific spell to stop acid!
- noted the spell clearly keeps you dry but doesn't keep you from contact with the liquid. Otherwise, it would help vs. steam, ice, etc.
- this spell doesn't help you swim, breathe water, or keep you from drowning. You'll be nice and dry, but dead, if you're submerged in water, inhale water, etc. and drown.
Basically, it's all about the dryness. This is excellent to keep equipment safe and clothes clean and people dry for purposes of illness, disease, resting in damp conditions, etc. But it won't save you from the acute effects of water.
