Intervention is an augment available in Dragon's Dogma.

Description

"Reduces cumulative damage when you are debilitated by the Five Archmagicks."
Japanese : 主要五属性魔法から受けた状態異常の蓄積を減らす

Effect : Prevents catching fire, i.e., Burning

Notes

  • Suffers from poor translation. The in-game description obfuscates the meaning: "cumulative damage" means damage over time, and "five archmagics" here means the five elements. The only common elemental debilitation with a temporal effect is Burning - thus, Intervention practically prevents catching fire.
    • Complete immunity from catching fire from standing in campfires etc.
    • Doesn't have any beneficial effect to prevent thundershock or frozen.
    • Doesn't prevent non-elemental debilitations (or spell effects) cast via an archmagic - e.g., the poison effect of the dark magic spell Miasma is not prevented.
  • Resistance, Toxicity, and Morbidity all have similar confusing descriptions - all reduce/increase the chance of debilitations, not damage.
  • Japanese wiki source states a 15% protection value.  If this is correct is probably means a reduction in debilitation potency to 15% of the original value, as the effect of this augment is considerable.
