An ice-based automaton attachment.

Stackable: 12

Note: This is an Automaton Attachment:

Automaton Effect Req. Capacity
 Occasionally scans target's magic resistances.  Ice x 1

Causes the puppet to evaluate the mob's elemental resistances before choosing a spell. If the puppet thinks it will be resisted, it will not cast a spell. The scanner does not target a mob's weaknesses, but rather avoids an obvious resist. This attachment works on all offensive spells, including enfeebles and nukes.

The Spiritreaver Head appears to have a "built-in" scanner. This attachment is not required for it to choose appropriate nukes.

Equipping the scanner on extremely difficult mobs may cause it to stop casting offensive spells entirely. The puppet will decide that all spells will get resisted, and thus will not cast anything at all.
