    Given that it's a Melee charm, normally, no. My Dawn's artifact reaper daiklave, however, has it as an Evocation, which he took....

    1. This post made me laugh way too loud at work.

    2. It's a testament to 3e's ruleset, and the setting and vibe of the game itself, honestly, that this character that would be an absolute mechanical nightmare overshadowing every session in many other systems is instead (honestly) in some senses sort of a bit player in the -grand- grand scheme of my players' storyline. Like, he ensures whomever he's with isn't especially likely to be slain via battle or assassin, and he -equalizes- large conflicts Dynasty Warrior style, but he really can only be in one place at a time and he's not especially...

    More fun facts about my group's Dawn: now that they're Essence 3, they have pretty much all of those charms, plus Single Point, plus Resistance Supernal.

    Solars don't fuck around....

    Digging into past answers from Mr. Vance, it appears that your read on it not applying to Overwhelming damage is on the money, though he does also admit that unsoakable damage like...barely ever comes up, which is why I figured I was in the clear with allowing that effect since it's otherwise kinda a mechanical orphan. Most of the time that Essence Gathering Temper is reset is from non-Artifact weapon attacks anyways, so it hasn't affected my game too, too much.



    Outside of DBP not stacking with armor, yeah, if Aegis triggers it's about as bad as it seems (speaking from...

    Initially I expected it'd be a pretty tough condition to achieve, but a few things have made it easier:

    1. Most fights involve at least one non-Exalt. Dragonblooded love to bring friends. Non-Exalts mean attacks without Overwhelming, and not buffed by excellencies and Charms (though relatively often Command dice are involved, evening it out a little). This makes it easier to soak hits outright. Would be even easier if heavy armor were an option, but sadly Single Point precludes that.

    2. Even when Overwhelming gets into the mix, I read Iron Skin Concentration as allowing...

    My game has been running a long while now, and The Sword, my Resistance Supernal Dawn has had to fight a pretty alright number of Dragon-Blooded and battle groups. What I have been surprised by is just how effective Essence-Gathering Temper has proven to be in large combats. Between Single Point and it, one-on-many fights of attrition actually end up going my player's way more times than not. Part (OK, a lot) of that is on Single Point being nuts, part of it of it is on account of Resistance Supernal, certainly, but in truth Essence-Gathering Temper does a -lot- of lifting, especially starting...
