staff of warding interactions

Post by Captive Goat »

Staff of Warding (2 Prowess): When wielding a staff with no other weapons or shields, nor heavy armor, the character may call “Ward” against any magical attack. Magical attacks include the “Invoke” Source.

Empowered: After Warding a Magical attack, the character may (within 3 seconds) utilize a melee-weapon-delivered “Invoke Force Strike X,” which may either be delivered with a packet or with their staff; X is the character’s normal Power Strike damage with a staff.
I have two questions! ^_^

Question 1:
After Warding a Magical attack
Does this mean I can use any Magical Ward to trigger the Empowered version of this Knack?

Question 2:
X is the character’s normal Power Strike damage with a staff.
I am trying to determine what exactly a "normal Power Strike" is, and if abilities or qualities like deadly that would increase the damage done by the ability Power Strike (if this ability is infact a "normal Power Strike") alter the X of Empowered Staff of Warding:
Power Strike (1 Prowess): The character can call Power Strikes with a value of X, where X is equal to their character’s level in this skill +1.
Deadly:
When the wielder of the weapon spends Prowess to call a Power Strike, the value of the Power Strike is increased by 1. May be added to a weapon multiple times, increasing the value 1 per instance.
Thank you!

The Empowered Force Strike functions only when Warding an attack with your staff.

Your normal Power Strike damage is however much damage you would do if you spent 1 Prowess to call a Power Strike, so Deadly would apply in this case.
