Chains and vicious weapons and qualities

posted Aug 23, 2018 13:04:04 by sinmissing
As I understand it, an effect does 1 point of damange and activates weapon qualities.

A chain is both improvised and vicious, these effectively cancel each other out? Improvised weapons do not do 1 damage with each effect, but vicious adds 1?

Do non-improvised weapons with vicious-1 do 2 damage with each result of a phoenix?

Lastly, does generating a phoenix on a damage die allow the player to activate any and all weapon qualities, or do you need to roll one phoenix for each quality you would like to activate?

You activate the lot. The reason chain has both is so that talents which ignore improvised or augment vicious are affected a vicious weapon does 1+1=2 damage on an effect

With one of his foeman's friends.

Thanks for your answer. Haven't played enough to notice how talents might affect weapon qualities and I'm glad to see I interpreted the additional damage from vicious correctly.
