Hi everyone, sorry if this seems like a dumb question, but I am still pretty new to this game. So I was reviewing what I want for my next purchase when I came across the light myrmidon Gorgon.
The Gorgon's glaive has a special attack that is called combo strike, as I am sure many of you well know. Combo Strike reads like this; "Make a melee attack. Instead of making a normal damage roll, the POW of the damage roll is equal to this model's STR plus twice the POW of this weapon."
I am trying to figure out how this is advantageous. Now correct me if I am wrong (which is why I am posting this because it sounds wrong in my head), but if you activate the Gorgon, advance. Then instead of being able to make two regular glaive attacks, which would be 2 attack rolls, then 2x(P+S+damage roll) one for each glaive attack. You use the Combo Strike*Attack which gives you one attack roll and damage would be (2xP)+S+damage roll, using up the entirety of your attack action that activation (unless you buy more with focus). Because using a special action or attack uses up the whole attack action, and does not let you do any more attacks that activation unless you purchase with more with focus, is that correct?
If that is the case then it seems like Combo Strike is never worth doing. You put all your eggs into one attack roll, and do S+2 dice less damage for it. I appreciate any insights or corrections, thanks and happy gaming.
