View Full Version : Is Bane Lord Tartarus 's Curse considered a magic attack?

Had a game the other day Legion vs. Cryx

Legionnaires' UA provides Mage Static
Enemy magic attacks targeting a model in this model's unit suffer -5 rng

Even though Tartarus's curse isn't rolling to attack, it still is targeting a model in the unit, and it has a range = CMD

So I guess the question. Is Curse considered magic and or a magic attack?

I believe it's just classified as an ability that automatically hits.

From reading the entry for Curse (Bane) in the Cryx book, it dose not appear to be either magic, or a magic attack, it is just an ablility that BLT gets.

Since it is not listed as a magic ability it is not a magic ability.

Bane Lord Tartarus' Curse is not a Magic Ability, nor Magic Attack.

Just because an ability targets something, does not make it an attack; that just places the various targeting restrictions on which model can be affected by that ability (e.g., requires LOS, etc.).
