Hey guys.

Sorry if this has been asked before, but can my warcaster use his/her focus to boost the 'to hit' roll for a spell cast by the Skarlock Thrall's Spell Slave ability?

Thanks

No, the Skarlock is the one casting the spell. The warcaster is only "considered to have cast the spell" after the fact, ie for purposes of upkeeping, resolving certain effects (like the extra trooper from Excarnate) and so on. The one *actively* casting in the here and now is the Skarlock, and he doesn't have focus to spend to boost.

Furthermore you generally can only boost attack or damage roles during your activation, so even if the caster was actively casting, it would be outside of activation.

If the skarlock has a soul however he can boost the spell.
