Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm a little confused about how the res orb and phylactery work with a lord.
I undertstand that if the lord is killed by something that wouldn't allow a wwb roll, (eg power weapon,) he can repair using the orb. But then phy says he can get back multiple wounds if he can self repair. So is phy like an upgrade of the res orb for the lord or do you have to use one of the other?
when the lord dies he makes a roll wwb roll because of the orb and then he has the phylactry to bring him back to full health if you make the roll.
-no, the two pieces of wargear are separate, you don't have to have one to get the other.
neither has any affect on how the other works
Procrastination- hard work often pays off over time, but laziness always pays off now.
Indifference- it takes 43 muscles to frown, and 17 to smile, but none to just sit there with a dumb look on your face.

The res orb gets the Lord the ability to WBB if he is killed by power weapons, str10 weapons, etc. Then if he does roll the 4+ to stand back up, depending on what he rolls, wether it be a 4, 5, or 6, the Lord gets a different number of his original 3 wounds back.
You don't need to have the Res Orb to have the Phylactery.
