Seeking confirmation that in MK3 you can now cast lightning strike after you kill a model (https://privateerpressforums.com/showthread.php?251946-OFFICIAL-Insider-05-31-2016-Jason-Soles-Circle-Faction-Overview&p=3544656&viewfull=1#post3544656) and still have it trigger, despite similar wording in MK2 and the contrary ruling (https://privateerpressforums.com/showthread.php?29740-Lightning-Strike-Sprint-and-timing&p=448036&viewfull=1#post448036) there.

You'll wear out your fingers posting that all day, especially since it's potentially false.

This is based on the Dark Legacy post that:
"Until the rules are released, no answers are available."

i dont remember where, it was in one of the insider threads i believe but someone from pp confirmed that you can cast sprint after killing a model.

Ill try to find it

EDIT:FOUND


With the change to Lightning Strike, can you now cast it after killing something and use it to sprint away or do you still need to cast it first?


Yes, that is the way we play tested it.

Don't bump threads that are in checking. Other discussion can be ok, but the infernal will answer the question when they have an answer. All bumping it will do is get them to lock it.

Lightning Strike is retroactive. Synergy is not retroactive. The difference between them is the limiting to a single activation. Synergy must be either upkept or cast before anything will trigger the cumulative bonus.

Is that a confirmation that you can now cast lightning strike after you kill a model and still have it trigger?
