Default Re: Magic - could you buff an enemy wizard with a non-resistable spell to track them?

Let's suppose you are going to be healed (as in "Healing" advantage) BUT you really hate the cleric or god that is going to heal you. Or you really really want to die. Then, if the healing power don't have a resistance roll, you automatically resist and the power fails.
I'm pretty sure you can't resist the healing advantage unless you take the -10% limitation where targets can oppose your IQ roll via a Quick Contest.

Though I don't really know if that's legal since that's meant for "Requires IQ Roll" limitations which isn't exactly what the baseline IQ activation for Healing is.

But if you had some other kind of 'requires (attribute) roll' on your Healing activaiton you should be able to make that limitations' activation resistible.

but again, a wizard could probably sense the magic anyway.
Mages can only sense permanent magic objects and when they step into a different mana zone, they need spells to detect other stuff.
