OOC - General Chat 03
Actually the character builder does this regularly. Remember that not all powers are represented in it (like all the leader token healing powers) outside of going into sheet mode and going to the right page.  I admit I haven't checked the compendium on the browser side, but on the mobile app, the Warlock entry lists the pact boons and their actions (except for Sorcerer King).

Glad to help. :) Just glad I got the DDI stuff working again!

@Willa: I see you haven't placed yourself on the combat map yet, are you having problems?

Also just to note I'll be authoring Ceba's for a few rounds as his player is currently recovering from a trip to the hospital.

Sorry - no problems - but I was waiting for Phelan to be added before I put Willa on.

@Willa: Oh it's fine.  Just mention that next time, ok?  If everyone waits on someone else then nothing happens. As for Willa's check, sometimes we try things and they work, sometimes they don't.  Though that doesn't mean it won't work in the future.  Remember that.

I did :) I rolled initiative before Phelan had been put onto the map and I said then that she'd be between him and the enemies.

I won't able to gen the next round today because I'll be running a Star Trek game tonight over on roll20 so the enemy turn and start of next round will have to wait until tommorrow once Craig has posted.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
All done.  Sorry for the delay.  Phelan - I think you need to roll Amare's Saving Throw vs the Daze condition.  Also can you use a free action at the same time as another action when you're dazed?  I find the condition's description a little ambiguous.  Thanks, :)

Willa, don't forget the bonuses from Magic Weapon.

Also I've rolled the save since I forgot to. Made it.

And Dazed does not interfere with free actions.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
If you all are wondering why there is so much commotion on the Combat Map, its because these guys have alot of shifting movement powers.  So they can basically rearrange themselves quite effectively when the situation demands it and they have very dangerous tactical behaviour.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
@Author: Thank you for updating Willa's dazed condition.  I had forgotten it.

EDIT: So attacking from invisibility normally provides combat advantage (+2 to attack rolls).  Under the House Rules, I think that means I have 5E Advantage (roll twice on attacks and take the highest?) for Willa's attack.  I have recorded each roll separately in case I am wrong about that, in which case just add +2 to the first roll made against each enemy.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
Willa: Yeah that house rule applies until you reach level 4.  I've had some discussion with Max on the subject and we've come to the decision to scrap it once you reach level 4.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
I think my next turn is going to be extremely complicated.  Unless anyone has any better ideas, this is what I am thinking:

Minor Action: Curse Sword Auto 1
Standard Action: Dire Radiance (2 chances to hit at +9 to hit.  Hopefully I can make a 19 with that)
THEN IF:

1) I hit and Sword Auto 1 survives.  Change my move action to a minor one and use my helm to determine its remaining hp.  Depending on what's left either Action Point to hit it with my daily or let someone else try to finish it off.  If left to someone else Daily sword 2 as below.

2) I hit and Sword Auto 1 dies.  Trigger my pact boon through my rod, spreading my curse to all enemies within 5 squares of Sword Auto 1, then AP and daily sword auto 2.

i) If sword auto 2 is hit and bloodied, change my move action to a minor action and use 'Taking Advantage' racial to end its aura.

ii) If sword auto 2 is hit and not bloodied, or not hit at all, move to maintain my Shadow Walk ability

4) I miss Sword Auto 1.  Action Point and attempt to Daily it.  If it dies, trigger pact boon to spread curse to all enemies within 5 squares, then move to maintain Shadow Walk.

@Author - the presentation of this may get messy, sorry.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
Yeah, it'll be a very long post with a lot of different possibilities and you'll have to figure out which one applies :/  I'll help however I can.  Hoping someone has a better plan though so it wont be necessary.

Honestly, messy as it is that seems to be the best option. You'll probably have to step-by-step things.

If our illustrious Author is happy to let me split my turn up into separate posts and also happy to respond to each, sure that would probably be easier.  Also it might be better to use Eldritch blast instead of Dire Radiance.  I have +2 to hit with Dire Radiance, but the Sword Auto's Fort is 2 points higher than its reflex, so the roll to hit is actually the same.  The difference is that Eldritch blast has higher potential damage on the turn it hits, whereas dire radiance has better damage over time, if the target moves closer to Walla.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
I'd recommend Eldritch Blast. We have no guarantee the sword auto will move toward Willa on its turn, plus better to try and take it out before it acts rather than during or after.

If you have a good reason then sure.  o3o

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
Well thanks to a series of awful rolls that was very anticlimactic and I am now out of anything useful I can do.
