Hi all, as the title suggests, any idea how Power Through benefits Onar for the Legends of the Alliance campaign?

Seeing as no health is restored on rest, does Omar recover 2 damage back or does he recover 7 damage when using a me pack?

Seems a bit odd a core skill would be stripped away entirely.

What is stripped from the rules is the fact that when you rest, any extra "Endurance" would translate in recovering health.

Onar's ability says that, after you rest, you recover 2 health. This is completely different, so this doesn't change. Whenever Onar rest, he recovers 2 health. If medpac, he'll recover 7 damage, indeed.

The wordage is "When you rest, you recover 2 additional damage", my thoughts are the key word here is "additional" making me wonder if the initial rest action would need to have recovered some health to being with.

Thinking about a scenario when Onar would only recover strain in a rest action, I guess the 2 damage recovery would still apply.

Rest in the Rules Reference Guide says "When performing a rest, the hero recovers strains equal to his Endurance."

Onar's ability just says that, in addition to this, he also recovers 2 health. The word "Additional" is for this, because in addition to recovering strains equal to his endurance, he also recovers 2 damage.

When Onar rests in the App, he recovers all strain and 2 damage. In conjunction he may recover 5 damage by discarding a medpak or Emergency Medpak.

Heroes certainly can recover damage in the app. Any ability that recovers damage recovers damage. They just don't recover damage when recovering strain.


Edit: maybe I said it better this way:
All abilities that recover damage still recover damage.

Rest doesn't recover damage because recovering strain doesn't recover damage.

When Onar rests, he recovers all strain and 2 damage. (The "additional" is there for clarity - so that you would not think that he can only recover 2 damage whenever he rests.)

Also note that in Imperial Assault (both base game and the app), the word 'additional' does not mean that you must already be getting something to apply it.
