Hi,

I do not see anywhere how to handle the fact that a vampire / ally is immune to X. 

Where can I found the information in the rulebook?

Thanks

It is not in the rulebook AFAIK.

It is an english word meaning that X as no effect on the vampire / ally in question.

You can find rulings made for specific cases :

for example :

If a card is immune to X, then X has no effect on that card.

As the cards are getting reprinted, only "immune to damage" will be kept. Other effects such as "immune to frenzy cards" are being reworded.

Damage has no effect on a minion who is immune to damage.

Damage has no effect on a minion who is immune to damage.

does it still count as being inflicted for cards that might check that sort of thing? (Taste and Disarm have language that makes the point moot) is the damage prevented completely? or is it reduced to 0? I'm sure there's some kind of corner case that may apply...

Found a corner case where it might be relevant:

Weighted Walking Stick

Only usable before range is determined during the first round of combat.
Put this card with 5 counters on it on this minion; it becomes a melee weapon equipment that can strike: strength+1 damage. For each damage inflicted by this strike (even if prevented), burn 1 counter from this card. Burn this card if it has no counters. A minion can have only one Weighted Walking Stick.

So if e.g. Mictlantecuhtli, who is immune to damage from weapons is hit with a Weighted Walking Stick, does it burn counters?

Damage has no effect - means it is not inflicted.

Check the Codex when you find an example with cards. i.e. on Miclantecuhtli:

Immune means damage is not inflicted, even if non-preventable or outside combat. [LSJ 20010627](groups.google.com/d/msg/rec.games.trading-cards.jyhad/NhNCVCCDyU0/I5Yph3-UUPsJ) [LSJ 20010629](groups.google.com/g/rec.games.trading-cards.jyhad/c/MhHKBY7II78/m/EyI_ise9M-kJ) [LSJ 20090304-1](groups.google.com/d/msg/rec.games.trading-cards.jyhad/B7EQiAVOr1Q/gg-GkqQBRp8J)

So, no, you don’t burn WWS counters.

Edit: So, it if inflicted with no effect, WWS counter burn. Thanks Ankha for the correction (see later on), I'll update the Codex rulings to reflect that. Thanks Yomyael fro the great corner case!
