Processed random occurence. Basically when you say "it has a chance to proc" it means "it has a chance to occur" (whatever the effect is that is proccing)
No problem. I ask enough questions on the boards that I felt that I should try to answer some :) Besides, you've helped me out on a couple of posts in the past if I recall correctly.
One thing I didn't see mentioned:
Changing anything on the equipment section of the inventory screen will allow for another transformation on the boat (or inside the dungeon, after the host starts the mission). In other words, armor, accessory, and weapon swaps also reset the "transformation used status", not just quick slots).
Also, I can confirm the broken shield piece, but I also thinks it's worth noting that the "transformed" shield can break during the time you're transformed. Again, the "transformed" shield is a different shield than the one you were using before activating transformation, so the normal shield will return to whatever state it was in, regardless of what happened to the shield in your transformed state.
I wonder if similarly it's possible to break sections of armor in the transformed state...
Oh, and blocking also can proc the projectiles. (Yes, I laughed when I saw how many veteran gnolls were dying just by attacking me.)
P.S. Even if Fiona enters the dungeon without a shield, she'll gain one to use by transforming.

Hmm... i thought I posted this, but anyway.
Can you check on the DEF bonus from broken shield, and no shield when trans? Since I don't have a Fiona, I can't check it myself.
I'll take a look at it later. For now, I can tell you that the shield that transformation provides (when you don't actually bring one) cannot be used to counterattack, or whatever-it's-called-where-you-can-start-at-the-third-swing-after-perfect-blocking, but it does negate damage. So basically, it works like a large shield.
Other bizarreness I didn't mention earlier: If you have no weapon nor shield equipped, and transform, you'll still have a shield. However, if you sit (or perform other actions that make your shield "disappear"), it will remain gone (visually anyway...you can still do the block and heavy stander animations). I have yet to test if you can still negate damage like this or not as I've only messed with this stuff on the boat.
So you won't have a weapon huh, that's funny.
Fist fighting paladin!!!!! Oh LOOOK I CAN BLOCK WITH MY HANDS.
