A question about interpretation.
Ancient Soul states that if you take damage from a source as the same type as your breath weapon, and they specify after you apply your resistance, you recharge your breath weapon.
Nusemnee's Atonement states that when you deal damage to an ally, you can redirect the damage to yourself with a scaling resist to that damage of 5/10/15.
Now reading Nusemnee's Atonement closely as well as reading the Dragon Soul class feature, if you have a higher resist another source, you can use that to reduce the damage taken. The resistance piercing that is part of Dragon Soul is not applicable to the damage you take from Nusemnee's Atonement because you are NOT a target of the spell. The pierce resistance only affects those who are targets of the spell. You are not a target of the spell, your ally is. You only redirect the damage but you do not change the targets of the spell.
Am I wrong about this?
This would make Improved Dragon Soul much more valuable. At paragon you would have resist 15 to your breath weapon if you line it up and at epic it would be resist 25.
Except nearly every Rebreather has a multi-typed breath, and Dragon Soul only gives you one resist. But yes, you're correct.
Or you could take a Wyrmtouched Amulet (Read: You should take a Wyrmtouched Amulet) and get even more. And yes, even the most basic rebreather uses more than the base keyword on DB (The easy example is when Lightning uses add thunder to their breath).
