Using Assult missile attack with Bow Master Tactic. Question. Can i crit with missile attack coming from assult ? And how many direct dmg would it deal 3, 2 or 0 (Longbow action cost, Dagger Action cost or no action cost). As well why their attack power from assult is 2 not 3 ?

Hi,
there are similar questions on the forum

Moderators haven't decided yet, and we have to wait for the long-awaited errata Sad

Assault is resolved before charge attack, so it's not a part of charge attack (which costs ACT)
IMO direct dmg will be 0, because ability which gives assault is for free.

That's indeed how it probably will be clarified.

To charge means running at full speed towards the enemy, so they can't pull the bow to its maximum and aren't able to take an aimed shot (imagine them taking a quick shot before drawing their daggers). The skill to make a shooting attack while doing a charge is already proof of their mastery.

I agree with the power dropping, but the critical hits potentially doing 0 would be anti-synergy; which is not what you want in any of your models! Having a tactic that enables missile crits, and an ability that that enables charging missile attacks not interact would be poor design.

While I can see why a crit would do 0 damage RAW, a better errata would be to add a line to assault stating the damage that critical generated by it would deal; 2 damage seams reasonable. This way it opens up something cool, rather than make something worse.

Just my thoughts. Oh and I can entirely see why ruling that a crit would do 0 damage is simple, elegant and in line with RAW - I just think it would be a poor choice. Smile

I see your point James.
We will consider creating a solution to allow crits for Assault attacks and Shieldbash etc.

Errata is coming very soon.

The Fiannor sub-faction ability is triggered on the mis attack of the assault if I charge a bigger model?

Yes, as it is a missile attack.
