OMG I just clicked and told my Demigod to go somewhere and then used the wand of speed, and my Demigod didn't even stop!!!!!! WOOT.f
EDIT: WotS QoT?
Yeah... before if you or your ally had bramble shield in effect, WotS would be negated if it absorbed damage but whatever they did to fix the healing changed that as well.
It won't help at all late game once the nukes get ridiculous, but early to midgame it will be brutal I would think. Imagine me playing QoT and we're 2v2 against a couple of Europeans at the HP flag...
Euro #1: "How is can we not push thems off of these flag?!"
Euro #2: "Because they use thah shield then use thah healing aura... these is dildos!"
