View Full Version : Spray and Magic Attack Clarification

A couple quick questions:

1) Spray attacks.

Do Spray attacks benefit from the aiming bonus if you forfeit movement?

Also, do spray attacks benefit from the back strike bonus? +2 in the back arch?

2) Magic attacks. Think Hex Hunters here, but could apply to casters in melee too...

Can you target a model you are in melee with, with a magic attack?
I assume if you can, it would be without melee penalty?


Thanks for the help guys.

1) Yes
2) Models ignore the target in melee penalty for magic attacks targeting a model they are in melee with. Yes.

To address a potentially unspoken question, note that Magic attacks cannot benefit from the aiming bonus (p.57 in Prime, under Aiming Bonus: "This bonus does not apply to magic attack rolls.")

Good clarification there.

I have a follow up question:

Let's say you use a magic attack which says that the model hit (or boxed) is the origin of a spray attack, would that spray attack be limited in range of the boxed model's LOS? I'm thinking about Crevasse to be specific.

Indeed it would be.

Answers to original question in post two. Unasked questions don't need answers, and new questions should get new threads. ;)
