View Full Version : Removing unused focus on Warjacks

My understanding of the rules is that unused focus should stay on the Warjack until your next maintenance phase. However just about every warmachine player I'v ever played against casually and in tournaments seems to remove unused focus at the end of the 'jacks activation.

Mostly this would be irrelevant, but there are a bunch of models that can do stuff to things that have focus on them, like Sentry Stones for example. Should people be leaving the unspent focus on the 'jack or is it correct to remove it after the activation?

Unspent focus is not removed until your next Maintenance Phase; it should remain on the models until then. This is definitely important, as there are some abilities which are affected by the amount of focus on other models.

During the Maintenance Phase, perform the following steps in order:

1. Remove all focus points from your models.

Unused focus stays on a player's models until that player's step 1 of his maintenance phase, because a you stated some abilities can have an effect because a model has focus on it.
