This has probably been covered before, but I can't find the post.

pButcher's feat says that all "attack damage" rolls get boosted. I know that this does not cover damage rolls that don't roll to attack (collateral damage from slams, for example); but how does this effect the Devestator's Rain of Death ability, which does not roll to attack anything? I.E. will it give it the boost or not?

For that matter, how does it work with standard Bombards?

Rain of Death is a Special Attack, thus causing "attack damage rolls." It also says that on a charge it can "make a Rain of Death attack," further indicating that it is an attack, not just a pure damage roll. So it will get the boost.

Bombards such as on the Destroyer are ranged weapons which make ranged attacks, and damage is "attack damage" even for those in the AOE, if that is what you mean.
